Our Painty Katie Advanced Make Do & Mind set includes everything you need to enjoy thoughtfully slow-stitching a quirky embroidered piece of art.
Created by two friends, both passionate about creating mindfully, Sarah Brown from the Old Schoolhouse and Sarah Lamballe of Bricktree Gallery, put together each Make Do & Mind set by hand. They take turns working from each other's homes in rural Lincolnshire, carefully selecting perfect combinations of small scraps of vintage, designer or recycled fabrics. All materials are sourced either from British manufacturers or remnants reused from other recyclers or auction house, plus charity shop finds!
Each Make Do & Mind set includes 'just enough' embroidery thread, beads or tiny buttons to complete your project without waste. New items like hoops or hangers are ethically sourced and designed to last so they can be reused.
All you need add is a needle!
Every step has been carefully considered and clear instructions are included (including a video tutorial link) so you can enjoy each moment as you stitch alone, in a slow-stitching group with friends, by hand or use a sewing machine.
This is your project, how you sew and appliqué is up to you.
Your Painty Katie set will have some sort of floral/fluffy combination, sassy specs, buckles and buttons but because of the unique nature of each handmade kit, no two finished pieces will be alike. How fabulous!
The first collection of Sassy Ladies has a choice of skin tone which you can select when you order.
Suitable for Advanced.
