cloth it up

Depending on your age you may remember Cloth kits, popular in the 70's and 80's. My mum made me a strawberry-shortcake character cushion with one.Basically it's a pattern with a printed design on it and all you have to do is cut it out and sew it together and look like an expert!
Well, like all good trends they're making a comeback, and like all good comebacks, there are famous designers involved! Clothkits in the UK have partnered up with Rob Ryan, People Will Always Need plates and others...make your own dresses, skirts, cushions and toys for all ages here
