I love Cathy of California‘s work because it looks like it’s straight out of a fabulous ’60s-era craft shop. She’s just created a new line of craft kits, which she puts together from vintage and “new old stock” materials. As she explains:
If you read my blog you know that I am just nuts about loomed flowers. The thing is that the supplies to make them are super hard to find. In fact most of the stuff is not even made anymore.
That’s why I have decided to seek out all of the vintage and new old stock flower looms that I can get my hands on. I’ve made it my mission to spread the word that making loomed flowers is one of the best crafts around and I hope to be teaching classes very soon.
The materials included are in great condition and should provide hours of fun. You can turn the flowers you make into brooches, use them in shadowboxes or attach them to a handbag, or just fill a bowl with them and admire your work. FYI, Cathy’s mushroom pincushions are on sale too. Link.
