Earlier this summer I added two new cotton project bags into my Etsy shop, which were in fact, the first steps for new crochet kits I have been working on for the last few months. Making candy crochet kits is one of my favourite activities in my little CrochetObjet world. I just LOVE creating them and I love to be a ‘kits maker’. Today I’m here to share the first new and so delightful Benji fun kit and I really hope you’ll like it too. This crochet kit is a fun box made for you to enjoy some craft time but it can also make a very special gift for a craft lover. You’ll get everything you need to crochet your own Benji The Bear with two variations of his stripe-y shirt. Do you want to see what’s inside? There are a few new little things which I’m so thrilled to be able to include in my new crochet kits.What’s in the kit?
• Crochet pattern – printed copy included
• 6 Granny Kit cotton balls (50 gr’ each) colours: Royal, Lace, Plum, Lilac & 2X Sand
• Black & Brown cotton yarn for nose making
• soft stuffing to fill in your bear
• 4 safety bear eyes + 5 stitch markers in a Benji NEW tiny tin box
• Benji cotton project bag
• A colour card of my cotton collection
• Crochet hook – optional (you can choose with or without a crochet hook)
The crochet pattern is a step-by-step tutorial and very easy to follow – even for beginners. The pattern is written in English US terms. You can read more about the pattern here. The size of the finished Bear is about 27 cm (10.5 inch) long.
The tiny tin box is a sweet little box I designed especially for my kits and for my workshop girls. We use them to put not just stitch markers but also safety eyes. In this tiny Benji box you will get: 5 Rose-Gold safety pins which are the most perfect stitch markers. I love these bulb safety pins, as they are so comfortable to work with and so stylish. + 2 pairs of safety Bear eyes. This lovely illustrated tin box makes it so easy to keep them together. Sweet as a candy.
Your DIY crochet kit comes with a lovely cotton project bag, with a Bear illustration printed on, designed by me. It will keep all your crochet goodies while WIP. It can also be a perfect gift wrap to give away your finished Benji.
Within the new crocket kits you will get 6 Granny Kit cotton balls to create the two different variations of Benji’s stripe-y shirt, just like my two original bears. BUT, if just like Yael, my talented student (and also the one who helps me pack your kits), you may feel inspired to make your own colour combinations, all you have to do is:
Go to the colour card here or on Etsy,
Choose your own colours
Leave me a note, while checkout, with a list of colours you want to get.
Note: in my original Benji the body of the bear is made of Sand colour. If you want to keep this body colour you will ONLY have to change the stripes colours. You can change the body colour as well if you like. Please feel free to choose your own colours as long as you keep your list with 6 cotton balls as included in the original crocket kit.
What do you think? Do you like this Benji fun box? Do you know someone that this box can make happy? In case you do like this new candy-crochet-kit you can find it here.
As I mentioned in my previous posts, my Etsy shop will be offering Patterns only starting on September 5th due to a family vacation. So, if you plan on making this project or any other project from my CrochetObjet little world please place you orders before September 4th, so I can send it to you, right before we leave. Thank you from me and from Benji for being so kind and reading our crochet kits news, xxxMo
