We’ve come up with a great idea for you to make someone a handmade gift – and practice your sewing machine skills! Our new pencil roll sewing kit contains everything you need to get going, including lovely contemporary fabrics from Tanya Whelan and Heather Bailey, bias binding, gross-grain ribbon and matching thread.
All you need to do is switch on your machine and get out a box of pins. The design, by our own Hilary Bruffell turns two squares of contrasting fabric, into a simple roll to keep your pencils, pens and brushes handy and portable – for just £7.99. It’s easy to make and a project you can finish in an afternoon or evening. Order online now.
With two contrasting fabrics, you can choose whether your pencil roll is the Green Tanya Whelan design fabric (as shown in our pictures) or the red Heather Bailey fabric. You could even buy two and use one for your pencils and one for brushes…
The pencil roll kit is sold through our shop partner RUCraft and comes with full instructions to guide you through the project which will help you practice your sewing machine skills. It’s a great project for all sewers and if you’re looking for gift ideas to start your handmade Christmas, the finished product or the kit make great stocking-fillers.
