The Do It Yourself Leather Bow Brooch kit, is a perfect gift for an aspiring designer, suitable for all ages.

The crafty bag is a great gift for someone who likes sewing and putting their own stamp on fashion.

Then pop some instructions and patterns in to our signature Crafty Bag to see it put to good use. Young ones will need an adult for guidance even though it is at a beginners level. Scissors and glue are needed to complete the kit.

Please note that due to the hand made nature of the craft kits contents may vary slightly from the photographs.

Everything included to produce 1 bow brooch and several extra leather bows which can be used as hair ties, dicky bow ties, wrist cuffs, just by adding ribbon or elastic. Designed to fire the imagination and encourage creativity.
