Here’s a gift idea that will brighten up a few grey winter hours – Threadfollower’s stuffed animal hand-stitching kits! These kits are appropriate for kids (and adults!) 8 and up — our sample bunny was made by a nine-year-old with minimal sewing experience — and did we mention completely adorable? They contain everything you need to make a little plush friend, including detailed step-by-step instructions. Threadfollower uses local and recycled materials, so you can inspire creativity and eco-consciousness all in one great gift!

JP Knit & Stitch *CRAFTY HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE #1:
Looking for a winter warm-up? Try making a pair of mittens with Manos Silk Blend yarn! Silk Blend is a lustrous 70/30 blend of wool and silk, so it’s warm and cozy while also being shiny and soft, and it comes in a range of lovely colors, both solid and variegated. It’s perfect for making a pair of mittens, and will support a number of styles to suit any knitting level. Try simple solid, striped, cabled, or stranded colorwork like these octopus mittens. Make some for your friends and family as gifts, or a pair for yourself as a well-deserved holiday treat!
