Craft Focus - February/March 2022 (Issue 89)

CORINNE LAPIERRE This kit includes everything needed to make four charming and deliciously fragrant Embroidered Lavender Bags. They can be used in drawers and wardrobes or anywhere you would like the soothing and evocative scent to linger. All the instructions and templates for the delicate embroidery and appliqué detail are provided as well as all the materials including 100 per cent flax linen, wool mix felt, DMC embroidery threads, toy filling, dried lavender and a needle. Lavender is well known for its beneficial properties and ours comes from a cooperative in Provence in France where the warm sunshine grows exceptionally fragrant buds with a long-lasting scent. Handmade in Britain and packaged in the company’s signature brown craft boxes, with colourful printed folk art motifs on every side, these kits make for a beautiful shop display. Packaging is fully reusable, recyclable, and compostable. This kit is suitable for beginners and more experienced crafters wanting to develop their embroidery skills. The trade price is £7 (RRP £16.80). +44 (0)1132 460 403 LETISTITCH LTD The Letistitch kit L 8012 New York, part of the Cities range, has been very successful since its release.
