Knitting Kit Cat in Wicker Basket

Knitting Kit Cat in Wicker Basket

This beautiful wicker basket contains the essentials for assembling your own cat!

Inside you will find 2 balls of black wool, knitting needles 40mm, cat eyes, string, hand sewing needles, ribbon, bells, stuffing and instructions.

First cast on your wool by following the well- illustrated instructions.

This is my first knit stitch row (below) for your reference.

Then you keep on knitting, alternating from needle to needle, until you get a rectangular piece.

It says in the instructions that it should be 20 stitches across and 32cm long.
I am a real beginner at hand knitting and this took me approximately 3 hours.

Then cast off, leaving 10-15cm length of wool for a tail
and fold the knitted rectangle in half.

Using the the string and sewing needle provided, sew up each side, 
leaving the bottom open for the stuffing.

Sew a running stitch to create the shape of the cat's ears.

Press the eyes into position and click on the backing of the eyes from inside the cat. 
This is the easy part!

I used the pink bead for the cat's nose! 

Once all the details have been added, it's time to stuff your cat and then hand sew to close.

It can be as full as you like!

Last of all, attach the bell using ribbon. 
(I cut this ribbon lengthways in half so that it was easier to thread through the bell)

Tying the ribbon around the cat's neck to finish.

Now you can carry your cat in the wicker basket for some more fun!

There is enough wool and accessories to knit another cat if the first cat feels lonely.
So don't be deterred if the first cat doesn't look like a cat, you have a second chance!

Such individual characters, now they can be your friends for ever.

For Ages 7 and Up

Mould-n-Paint Garden

Mould-n-Paint Garden

The Pegasus Toy-Kraft company based in India 
offers a wide range of toys such as this fun Mould-n-Paint Garden Kit.
Providing children with a stimulating platform that fosters 
personal expression and intellectual growth.

This kit includes:
1 Packet of Plaster of Paris,
6 Moulds,
6 Colours tempera paints,
6 Disc magnets,
1 Paint brush and an
Instruction leaflet.

In a plastic bowl, empty half the bag of Plaster of Paris.
 Taking care not to let your children breathe it in.

(There is plenty more Plaster of Paris to make another 6 garden elements.)

Mix in an equal amount of water to create a slurry that has a pourable consistency.

Spoon the Plaster of Paris into each plastic mould.
Gently shake plastic mould tray to get rid of any air bubbles.

Add disc magnets and make sure they are sitting level on top with the plaster of paris. 
Do not press disc magnets in otherwise I found they are not strong enough to stick onto the fridge.

The Plaster of Paris mixture will release heat in the hardening process 
as the setting is a exothermic reaction. 

Once they have set (takes up to 30minutes, for best results wait 24 hours)
 - its time to paint them!

First, paint the garden elements in a coat of white paint.
This will allow the other colours be more bold. 
Let it dry.

Then it is really up to your children's imagination!
They can go wild with their painted butterflies and flowers displayed around the home.

For Ages 5 and Up.
