Loopy about Craft. Kits that feed your creative side. For the festive season: A little box with a lot of heart, designed to share the love and celebrate the Little Stars in your life. Perfect to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Another way I have used these stars is to give them with a little gift to the older siblings of a new arrival. But really no reason is needed. Just because they are a Star.

This is a new version of the Star Garland kit .
Choose three balls of Scheepjes Catona Cotton and add to your basket with this kit (this item does not include the yarn) The image shows just a few of the possible combinations you could choose. If you would like me to show you any colours together please contact me and I can send you a picture.

A little bag with a lot of heart, designed to share the love and celebrate the Little Stars in your life. Perfect to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Another way I have used these stars is to give them with a little gift to the older siblings of a new arrival. But really no reason is needed. Just because they are a Star.
You could use the catona but I have also made them using other cotton - Rico Creative Aran, Rico Creative Aran Print and Scheepjes Cahlista which give a larger star and the Scheepjes Twinkle for a sparkly star. I have also made a garland using Scheepjes Merino soft The list of Yarns to use is a long one! Add any options you like to your basket along with this kit. If the yarns you choose are larger balls they may not fit in the organza bag but the Garland you create should fit in to gift it.
You will require a 3mm hook if using the Catona (I use a 4mm hook as I am quite a tight crocheter). This is not included in the kit but I have Clover and Knitpro waves amongst other hooks in stock. I designed this very simple but effective star with novice crocheters in mind. If you have the basic stitches you can expand your repertoire with this design.
You get two wooden star design buttons, a tibetan silver star charm, an organza bag to store your project in and to gift it in, a printed folding pattern, A card that can be framed that says "You were born to sparkle, stay strong and shine on" this was a phrase my daughter Emily used when she raised over £1800 by Shaving her hair off for two Cancer Charities when she was 13.
A perfect little project for you to make and then gift or it will make a super cute gift for someone to create themselves and then gift. A simple but effective star that can be made in colours of your choice.You can choose the shades you make the garland in. Choose the colours your little star loves or match them to a nursery/bedroom/playroom.
I am so pleased to share with you the Mustard Medley Cushion cover kit and pattern. This is a collaboration between myself and Fiona of Sew Happy Creative. Fiona is on Instagram and facebook. She also has an Etsy store where she sells more of her patterns and beautiful makes. I am thrilled she agreed to work with me.
We wanted to offer a kit that felt like a treat to yourself but could also be a perfect gift to give to a crocheter in your life. The ingredients are of a good quality and in large part have been sourced from other small businesses. See below for the kit contents. Fiona has compiled a very detailed tutorial with many helpful images. Cushion pad and Hook not included. You will need a 4.5mm hook. I have Clover and Knit pro waves hooks in stock.
The traditional granny square fitted perfectly for the design and the pattern/tutorial with extensive images and detailed descriptions will suit a confident or advanced beginner. We spent quite some time choosing the shades and our final choice was inspired by Orla Kiely and her Rhododendron design. I think it is a blend of shades that can work in many schemes.The yarn is Cahlista, this aran weight cotton yarn is beautiful to work with and makes a soft but hard wearing cushion cover. The shades we chose are 4 balls code 130 old lace, 1 ball of each of peach 414, saffron 249, moon rock 254, caramel 506.

Welcome to the new addition to Loopy about craft Kits collection.
This is a Dream catcher designed for age 8 up to Adult. You can gift the kit or you could make the dream catcher and gift it in the sturdy Kraft box that it comes in, I have included a gift tag with a "Dream" charm and red and white butchers twine to wrap around the box. The contents come with a blue cloud tissue paper that can also be reused to wrap the dream catcher in. The postcard reads "May you dream of lovely things and wake to find them real" by JJHeller. It can be pinned to a noticeboard or framed.
This is a project that a competent 8 year old could make but they might require some assistance. It is a project that takes a bit of time and is definitely something I would have enjoyed making with my daughter when she was younger. I found craft projects were an ideal opportunity to spend time together and there is something about working side by side that enables conversation to flow easily and I often found that we tackled some interesting subjects as we worked alongside each other and it also proved to be a natural way to discuss anything that might have been worrying her.
Adults will also enjoy making this project and it would be a beautiful gift for a little (or not so little ) person in your life.
In the box you get everything you need to make the project.
The crochet flower is lovingly created by me so no crochet skills are necessary.
There are beads, charms, feathers, thread and needle and the yarn to wrap around the 4" wooden ring. If you are making the kit and would prefer the kit not to have pink beads in please mention on the note to seller option at checkout.
The yarn used is Stonewashed XL and although I have given 5 options here you could choose a shade from the range and I will make up a custom colour box for you. There are now a number of new shades available in the XL range so please check the product link. Please add the choose your own shade option and leave a note on the note to seller box to tell me the code of your colour option.
Contents may vary slightly from those pictured. I have sourced the contents from other small businesses and it will depend on availability.
The kraft box measures 135mm x 103mm x 66mm approx
