Olivia Owl Doorstop Kit
by Needle in a Haystack
The Olivia Owl Doorstop Kit is a fun and practical project suitable for children to make. Olivia Owl is a cheeky girl with a big job to do, she has to keep the door open!
With clear, easy to follow instructions, this Kit especially designed for children will be a big hit for those loving to embroider, sew and create.
This was actually one of our Children’s Embroidery class projects one term when we still had the store and were holding weekly Term embroidery classes for children and was designed by the teacher, Karen Bramich of Needle in a Haystack.
Recommended for Children 8 years and over (with the assistance of a grown up).
In class the children learnt how to trace their pattern, cut out the pattern pieces, embroider and decorate the feather pattern, prepare, assemble and stuff the doorstop.
Approx finished 20cm x 30cm
The Olivia Owl Doorstop Kit could also be modified an made into a cushion.
Excellent kit for a beginner, experienced stitcher or
