First the Girard Memory Game, now the Fleming baby body suit: today is very much about goodies for your kids that the adults can appreciate too.
This bird box belongs in your garden. Not only will it add a retro twist to any outdoor space but it's also a great dining place for the birds in your neighbourhood – but beware of neighbour envy. The box is carefully handmade from high-grade sustainable Scandinavian redwood pine then handpainted with Cuprinol water-based exterior wood paints that are non-toxic to plants and wildlife, and is suitable for small birds like sparrows and blue tits. You can make is extra special by adding a numberplate and names. It measures approximately 28cm (h) x 20cm (w) x 18cm (d) and comes with full mounting instructions.
The whole thing is £60 from Not on the High Street and it's handmade especially for you.
Long gone are the days when craft sets focused on reproducing only twee images of kittens or flowers. There's an increasing range of kits featuring more contemporary designs that you might actually want to have in your home when finished, such as this VW camper van needlepoint kit.
You'll probably recognise the illustration as one of Pearl & Earl's, now recreated in wool, complete with a colourful stripy background. The kit contains everything you'll need to recreate it: 10hpi (holes per inch) canvas, which is great for beginners, wool, needles and chart and, probably most importantly, instructions.
The kit uses high quality materials which is reflected in the price of £60.
