Calling all Knitters and Crocheters!
To celebrate the arrival of the much anticipated Wonderland collection by Rifle Paper Company for Cotton and Steel (coming so soon!) we are planning a big Alice in Wonderland themed display for our West Hampstead shop and we need your help!
We would love you to get your knitting needles and crochet hooks out and stitch us some tea party treats! We are looking for miniature cakes, biscuits, cookies, and tea cups, juice bottles…. you get the idea!
The only criteria is that they should be no bigger than 4 inches by 4 inches. Pick any colours you like – this is a great project for using up up your bits of left over yarn!
There are some great free patterns out there and you can find links to some good ones below. Or, of course, you can make up your own! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- For crocheters check out the totally adorable Crochet Cake Sachets by Normalynn Hood. The images that follow are from this collection!
- For knitters we love Jean Greenhouse’s Tea Party Treats!
Please drop off your finished goodies at our shop in West Hampstead or pop them in the post to us by 31 March (our new postal address is The Village Haberdashery, Unit 6, Hardy Building, Heritage Lane, NW6 2BR). We aim to reveal our displays at the beginning of April so we would love to receive your work before then if possible. But don’t panic – we can still add items to it if you don’t finish in time!
Afterwards we will donate them all to The Children’s Society shop on West End Lane.
Have fun! And if you have any questions, contact us.
