Make these beautiful, rustic mini bowls with simple stitching - just a needle and yarn and your own two hands. The Naomi Mini Bowls kit provides the opportunity for multiple hands to dive in; get a group of gals, kids, or friends together and try your hand at basketweaving! Plus you’ll love how quickly and beautifully these little cuties work up.
Each kit makes 4 individual bowls measuring 4" x 1" high.
Woven twill tape makes the most lovely fabric. Filled with light and texture, the Bella Bento Bag will become your go-to stash spot for just about anything, or the perfect little handbag with these lovely wooden handles! This bag is constructed in a rectangle of handwoven fabric (no loom!) which is then hand stitched into place. It is straight forward in terms of technique (it's just over-under) but a little more time intensive in terms of weaving and hand-sewing (no machine required).
Measures 12.5" (32cm) high, 12.5" (32cm) wide.
When it's too hot to think about knitting, why not try your hand at a new fiber craft?
