We’re taking you to the beach with this year’s Mother’s Day Kits! It all started with fabric that cracked us up, featuring beach babes made out of fruit. We had Karen at Blue Tulips make up the beautiful project bags for us (and she started sewing back in December, so you know we’ve been planning this for a long time!) The bags are fully lined and have a clear vinyl pocket on the inside, for accessories. The bottom is square for easier sitting, and it’s about 9″ tall with a drawstring closure.
Jill at Studio June dyed up her wonderful Super Cash Sock yarn base (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon) in this limited edition “Beach Glass” colorway. There are 435 yds. in this skein of fingering weight yarn, so it would be perfect knit up into socks or a scarf or a cute one-skein shawlette.
To round it out, we added in a flower tape measure, because everyone needs a flower on their special day. And we liked how the pull at the end of the tape measure is a leaf.
Whether you buy it for yourself or someone you love, we hope you enjoy this little beach vacation kit. You can get your kits here, while they last.
