Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great to make with kids I bought this to make with my 8 year old niece, partly because I really liked the designs. The materials are all really good quality and as another reviewer said, there's probably enough to make at least 8 owls. My niece loved sewing these and the recipients (she made most of them as Christmas gifts) all really liked them too. The only downside, for which I knocked off one star, is that the contents aren't all the same as the pictures - some of the buttons are different, there isn't enough of some colours of felt to make the owls exactly as shown on the front of the box - but there is no disclaimer. Overall however, I think this is superb value and great quality designs. (It's probably an oversight, and it doesn't matter to me, but there also doesn't appear to be any copyright statement explaining the circumstances in which you can use each pattern. Are they only for your own use, can you make owls to sell for charity etc etc.) 10 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun for any age I'd love to say I bought this for a child but I actually bought it for my 30 year old self. I've been making them for my children and my friends children using a little more felt to initial each owl. I'd say there are enough materials to make atleast 8 owls. This has definitely given me the inspiration to kick start my creativity in these cold winter evenings and kept me from raiding the food cupboard too. My friends love the owls and I've really enjoyed making them. 05 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fabulous creative fun this is a lovely kit, it contains high quality materials and simple design instructions that a child can enjoy making with just a little supervision. my 8 year old daughter absolutely loves it. 10 September 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Expensive and incomplete The kit has the basic shapes that match the description but no threads and a selection of buttons etc that do not match the pictures. Some of the buttons were so large that you could only use one per owl! Only for the experienced crafter who can supplement the kit with their own supplies. If you buy this as a present then give the person receiving a needle, some threads and a selection of small buttons. Very disappointing. 30 August 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great fun! excellent gift for any creative youngster. good value for money too 05 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and creative This is a lovely little kit for beginners as well as more proficient sewers. A simple kit thats easy to sew but has loads of potential for developing your own ideas so you can make it as easy or elaborate as you like. I really liked the extras that came with it as well, for example the brooch, the key ring and loads of ribbon to use for decoration or hanging, enabling you to create highly individual and personal owls. A great kit and lots of fun to do. 09 November 2011
