A new crafty kit for the kiddies (or the kiddies at heart)


There seems to a distinct lack of making stuff at CurlyPops HQ at the moment, but I sincerely promise that the cogs are still slowly turning back here, behind the scenes.

Frocked (iPhone photo) - Testing by Brianna (or B-Fab as we like to call her)

When I have a little brainwave and come up with a new product, there's lots of testing and waiting and thinking......

 Owlie - Testing by Little Miss

and tweeking and testing and always the last little bit more waiting involved...


....and making sure that it really is suitable for the kiddies (of course).... (or just the kiddies at heart)

Kombi - Testing by Little Miss

.... and more importantly that they love it so much that they immediately want to colour in another one.


So, this is my brand new product - the CurlyPops Colour Your Own Fabric Panel Kit.

You can choose your favourite from the sweet little Owlie or the Kombi Van.

Kit Contains:

Black and White Owl or Kombi Van Fabric Panel measuring approximately 20cm x 20cm.
Design measures approximately 13cm x 13cm.
Fabric is a 55% linen 45% combed cotton blend.
Machine wash warm or cool using phosphate-free detergent.

Directions for Use:
Use appropriate fabric markers to colour in your fabric panel (Crayola brand fabric markers are recommended).
Follow the directions for heat setting and washing contained on the fabric marker packet to ensure that the colour will not run.
Use the panel in your favourite crafty project – frame as a piece of wall art, appliqué onto a t-shirt, stitch up as a cushion panel…. The possibilities are endless!


Little Miss took her completed Owlie panel home to stretch over a canvas.


I took the Kombi panel that she coloured in, heat set it, and appliqued it onto a little tee for a friends son.


It's super cute!

Great idea Cam. Fantastic rainy day project for the tiddly-winks.

Fiona said...

Another great idea! Little Miss colours in beautifully - so neat!

Ady said...

Fab idea, Cam!! Will we see the wee dress in there sometime too? Little Miss colours in so neatly and perfectly. My 9 year old wouldn't do as good a job. So do you set the fabric ink by ironing it?

Jennie said...

What a brilliant concept, and cute artwork! I'm working on a new Spoonflower project myself...
