Wattle & Loop

The lovely folks at Wattle & Loop sell D.I.Y. slow stitching kits, and I think we all need one. When I found the company, I had to look up the term slow stitching. It turns out it’s more of a movement than a craft style. The idea is that you make an embroidery project using hand stitching, but you take your time. It’s meant to be more about the process than about the end result, and I think that’s a lovely idea. I also like that it’s okay if it’s a little rough and a little messy (and not just because my embroidery always looks like I made it with my feet).

Another thing I love about these kits is that because Wattle & Loop uses vintage and reclaimed fabrics, each kit is different. I can’t wait to give it a try!

You can see all of Wattle and Loop’s amazing D.I.Y. kits on their website and on Instagram.

  2. I have no answer but are crafts really art? This is a prime example. I just don’t see it as art. Not that it didn’t take skiil to make them, it did. Hal

  3. Love these!
    As for the arts vs craft argument I’ll say they are art. I have inherited a treasure trove of embriodered quilts and tablecloths from a great aunt. I am sure some were from crafted kids, but to me they are all art, something lovingly stitched with her own hands, most of them made 50+ years ago.

    • I love that, Kate! when my mother was sick, my cousin and I made a blank quilt and got the kids in the family to draw and write on it for her. She called it her favorite work of art, and per her request, she was buried with it.

  4. I like this idea a lot. I have so little patience and stamina for sewing so the concept of this appeals to me. I will have to check it out. Could be a good lockdown project.
