With a needle and thread, you can cut out and make a trio of woodland animal glove puppets with this crafty sewing kit from Tate and Alice Melvin. Sew a squirrel, a hedgehog and a fox friend using printed fairtrade organic cotton.
Part of a collection of children’s clothing, accessories and craft activities featuring animals of the British Isles, this cotton sewing kit has been designed by Alice Melvin exclusively for Tate. These designs have been created to highlight the importance of teaching children about nature – because, as Alice says, ‘There is so much native wildlife for us to appreciate both out in the wild and in our urban environments. It’s only by learning and caring about our wildlife that we will fight to help protect its fragile presence.’
Alice Melvin is an illustrator and designer who lives in Edinburgh. Along with her love of drawing, Alice delights in the making process and has designed many interactive ‘cut out and make’ children’s products. She’s also written and illustrated several children’s books, published by Tate.
Recommended for ages 6 and up. Please supervise children when using scissors and sewing equipment.
Dimensions: packaging is 21 x 27 cm, fabric sheet is 50 x 60 cm, each animal is approximately 19 x 13 cm when assembled.
