The Great British Sewing Bee Sewing Studio

My oldest has been doing sewing club at school and is watching me while I’m using my sewing machines and desperately wants to have a go but I have always a little wary until now with  The Great British Sewing Bee Sewing Studio for ages 6 and over from around £43.00.

Now I am a fan of two things, number one sewing and number two, The Great British Sewing Bee, the show was and still is awesome and something that pushed me and Liv into the sewing world.

This is a fun and safe sewing machine for children to be able to get involved with sewing.

The machine comes with an easy to follow instructions in the form of a handy booklet. This machine is ideal for both a  beginner and someone who is more experienced. Everything your little one will need to start out is in the included in the box, including a first project kit for a clutch purse. There are a number of kits available from phones case to blankets.

There is a foot pedal so it is like a fully working grown-up machine, two spare needles, bobbins and a needle threader to help with that all-important task. There are patterns for the clutch bag and an assortment of fabrics.  Hours of fun can be had with this and is a great way to get your children involved with something else away from a screen. Sewing is a great hobby that could develop into something more. There are endless possibilities that can come from this sewing machine, clothes for dolls as well as people, bags and teddies. Liv loves being able to sew along with at me at home and I like knowing she has a safe machine to sew from, one that performs like a fully functioning machine that I would use. 

This is a great gift for Christmas and with the compact machine it will not take up much space and easy to store.

Here’s something made by Liv!

Cozy Cats!

Now I must start this by telling you how much of a fan Evie is of cats. I mean this girl has a serious case of cat loving.

Only thing is, we can’t have cats due to Skye the dog not loving them at all. So she just fills her life with anything cats. And I mean anything.

So when I heard about this amazing Cosy Cats set from Fuzzikins craft, I knew from the off this would be something Evie needed.

The Cozy Cats come with everything you need to style and make your own fuzzy kitties and the bed they will obviously need to sleep in. GENIUS.

The set itself comes with:

  • Large cat figure
  • Medium cat figure

  • Felt accessories for the cats
  • Assembley tool for he beds

So the set itself comes with everything you and your little one needs to make their cozy cats truly unquie yet comfortable.

Again, Genius.
