Our next kit is Felt Christmas Baubles! These are a lot of fun to create, cutting out the felt pieces, adding embroidery, making them into little baubles, then adding shiny golden and silvery beads to glitter and sparkle in the light. Full templates and ideas for the patterns are included in the kit, or you can go to town personalising them with your own designs. Learn more...

December's kit will be shipped by Friday 14 December.

In a hurry? Buy one of our immediately available kits and we'll post out by the next working day.

Each month, we design a limited edition craft kit for you. It could be macrame, ceramics, book-binding – or something completely different!

Beautifully packaged, your box will arrive full of inspiration and all the materials, tools and instructions to make a complete project.

This month, we're taking inspiration from the sun, its beams and uplifting energy, to create your own beautiful sunbeam wall hanging.
