Aways Hope kit

Cross stitch is just so therapeutic, which is why we fully encourage it as a screen diversion. 
This kit by Cotton Clara has been designed by tattooist Pamela Koon, and it mixes traditional Quaker cross stitch with elements of traditional tattooing.
The kit comes with everything you need, including a 15cm hoop, thread, fabric and instructions. Why not get sewing and take some time to breathe and to hope?

WHY WE LOVE IT: The packaging is completely plastic free

Kindness banner kit

With a nod to those lovely cross stitch kits we all enjoyed as children, this Kindness banner kit from Cotton Clara is perfect for beginners and first time little stitchers. 
The pattern is pre-cut on FSC plywood and just one type of stitch is needed. Adorable in any room of the house, we think this is the perfect rainy day screen diversion. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: The packaging is plastic free and the plywood banner is FSC
