DIY craft share

Christmas is almost here and if you are still stuck then why dont you take a look at these DIY kits?
Either you can make the gift yourself and gift it onwards or give someone a kit to learn a new skill themselves (which to me knowledge is priceless no?).

Lino cutting was somehting I learn in school and honed into something better for being able to print onto fabrics for my fashion collection. I miss Lino cutting an dits somehting I love to get back into especially since I'm re-finding my love for print work.
It looks to be a brilliant piece of kit lovingly put together for a wonderful experience so i'm very much hoping I will get it!

Fingers crossed!
