This cardinal sewing kit is designed for novice adult crafters or experienced children over the age of 8. The ornament is entirely hand sewn. No machine sewing or needle felting required!
The kit features a 100% wool fabric that is machine knit and then felted with warm water and agitation. Its felted nature means that its raw edges won’t unravel, but its knit quality allows it to stretch. The luscious red wool will be a perfect accent against a holiday tree or window.
Once you’ve completed the kit, you can try to felt your own material to make more cardinals. Just wash an old wool sweater in your machine with just a little detergent. Let’s slow down textile waste and make something old into something new!
