Many of us will have fond memories of our favourite childhood toy – even more so if it was handmade with love and care. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a collection of the very best projects that will have you reaching for your needle and thread.
Whether you’re just starting your stitching journey, or looking for your next challenge, you’re sure to find an enjoyable make for little ones to cherish. Kicking off we’ve got some great projects for you to try with your kit, including an adorable woodland owl, a sausage dog and a selection of bonus makes including a crafty hen. There’s a whole menagerie of creatures great and small, we especially love Walter the whale! You can’t go wrong with dolls; they will always be a much-loved toy for kids, and we have a range of different styles. When you’ve finished, why not invite all of your little one’s dollies over for a tea party with the fabric cakes project? With traditional sponge slices and a bakewell tart, these makes look good enough to eat.
Finally, we’ve got playtime covered with our hand-picked selection of games and accessories. Make a soft baby book or toddlers or a secret hideout for older children with the circus-themed tent. If you’re looking to perfect your knowledge on different types of hand-stitches, then head to our handy techniques section to brush up on your skills and learn new ones.
