Sarah made this easy-peasy tutorial for creating adorable hedgehog pincushions on BurdaStyle. Shade of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle! These would make a great last-minute addition to anyone’s sewing kit gift.

Mrs. Tiggy-winkle’s hand, holding the tea-cup, was very very brown, and very very wrinkly with the soap-suds; and all through her gown and her cap, there were hair-pins sticking wrong end out; so that Lucie didn’t like to sit too near her.” – B. Potter

Jason is rocking an olive green bow tie but this would be swingin’ in menswear suiting, suave brocade, or even snappy seersucker. And for all you bow tie fashion mavericks, here are directions on how to knot your new attire.

We are wild for these quick and easy to make wool potholders. They would make a lovely and practical gift for anyone with a kitchen….and might even entice the recipient to back a creamy and rich chocolate ganache tart to share with you on a dank and rainy night! Wool felt can be found in squares on Britex’s 3rd floor, and by the yard on Britex’s 4th floor. If you wish to buy wool felt by mail, contact us through our fabric mail order department for detailed mail order assistance.
