I love receiving mail, that’s probably why I do most of my boring shopping on Amazon – cutting board, coconut milk, you know the drill… even everyday stuff of life feels like a gift when I get to open a package! Just imagine a REAL gift you give yourself arriving in the mail; something handmade, something special. And, like a gift, the contents are a surprise (Totally not like when I simply forget I ordered 3 lbs. of flax seeds from amazon.com). That’s the idea behind Maker Mail from Oh My! Handmade Goodness.
I don’t know about you, but I love giving gifts just as much as I love receiving them (maybe more), so I was thrilled to participate as one of the Makers in this first offering! If you sign up to receive Maker Mail #1 you will receive a random selection of 3 handmade goodies (no duplicates, obvs) to arrive at your home directly from the artists themselves that will be a super sweet gift for you or someone you love.
My contribution is a team effort with Kimberly Kling of Joyful Roots. Kimberly is pretty fantastic in general, but especially in working with graphics.
This kit includes all the materials needed to get you started and create your own hand stitched accessory in one crafty afternoon: 3 pre-cut organic knit fabric pieces, one mini skein of embroidery floss, two hand sewing needles in an organic wool felt needle book, and instructions to complete your project.
We’re using adorable organic fabric from her Lumberjack Attack line, combined with some cotton/bamboo blend solids. The mini skeins of embroidery floss I’m including is from Weeks Dye Works, and the needle book I have put together from each kit uses Kim’s fabric and some organic wool felt. Kimberly has made the instruction card a thing of beauty, and we’re wrapping it all up with a sweet, reusable muslin project bag.
Of course, it’s possible you won’t get our kit in your maker mail subscription – but there are so many other wonderful makers participating; you cannot lose.
Give yourself a subscription to Maker Mail #1 today, while there are still slots available. You deserve it!
