“ Brand: Cath Kidston / Type: Pin Holder „
I love anything cute and girly and am also partial to a bit of sewing here and there. At Christmas last year I was secretly over the moon when my husband bought me a Cath Kidston needle case shaped like an owl as a little stocking filler. He must love me if he doesn't mind venturing into Cath kidston for me and buying me this gorgeous little owl!
The owl is well made from felt and when opened has two leaves which store the needles. I was impressed to also find 5 needles inside too when it was bought and thought this was a nice extra, as I'm always in need of spares.
It looks lovely in any sewing box and I love having an excuse to get it out, often offering to sew friends children's uniforms if they get holes in, or if trousers need taking up.
Owls seem to have become recently trendy and seem to be popping up on everything. The colourful fabric and cute owl will be a hit for any girly girl who likes to sew. Priced at £8 it is expensive when you think of what it actually does, holds needles /pins and looks pretty, but I don't find the price particularly surprising from Cath Kidston.
Sized at 9cm by 9cm it's a nice little size. It feels strong and perfectly capable of holding needles without being torn. I find it so easy slipping the pins into the material, rather than just chucking them into my sewing box and losing them. My girls love to hold mr owl as they have named him, as the eyes are loose and roll about when he moves. I don't (for obvious safety reasons) make a habit of allowing the girls to play with it, but will let them have a sneak look every now and then when I can observe them.
A cute little sewing accessory from Cath Kidston.
Having been bought the Cath Kidston Hedgehog Pin Cushion a while ago, I was enamoured to also find the Cath Kidston Owl Needle Case - which I thought would complement it perfectly. It is a way to safely store needles and pins and is a sweet little addition to my sewing kit. Like all Cath Kidston products, it is very cute and yet still functional - and this, I think, is where Cath Kidston's designs are such winners. It cost me £8.00 which I think it fairly expensive - but Cath Kidston does tend to be on the slightly expensive side.
The Cath Kidston Owl Needle Case is made in the shape of an owl. It would appeal to both old and young people equally I think because it is traditional and yet quite retro in style. It is made entirely out of felt and kind of has a homemade look to it, which I rather like. The outside of the "case" looks like an owl - and is fairly small, measuring about 10cm x 8cm x 1cm and so it doesn't take up a lot of room in my sewing case. The owl case then opens outwards and inside is a green piece of felt which serves to hold the pins. It's simply a matter of threading the pins into the felt and then the closing up the case again. The felt is thick enough on the outside to mean that the pins do not poke through and so you don't end up stabbing yourself.
I do think this is a really lovely little item and would make a great gift for person who likes to sew.
This is another lovely little addition to my sewing box! A Cath Kidston Owl needle and pin holder! I really really like these cute little animal designs from her household range and will probably be buying for more for Christmas presents this year!
Cath Kidston's sewing range is a relatively new design and arm of her household items. The owl needle case is a very twee design. It is made of a strong felt material (100% felt) that folds into two and opens like a book with dimensions of 8cm x 9cm Inside is a loose piece of felt where you can keep track of and hold all of your sewing needles and pins without worrying about them lying loosely in your sewing box.
The felt pin holder is multicoloured which makes it such a different and very fun item. The owl had a pale blue felt body, with red wings. he is sitting on green grass with little woolen feet. His googly eyes are made of a plastic material that move when he is shaken and he has sewn on feathers on his body.
They are extremely cute accessories for you to use and each one seems to be quite individual and have its own quirk's which is what you get with these handmade items. On the back of the owl is the Cath Kidston branding label. Inside the green felt has plenty of space to hold your needles safely and easily and you even get five needles included in the product!
Warning: Do not wash. This is not a toy. Keep away from children.
At £8 with five needles and such a cute sewing accessory I am really pleased with this needle case! Ideal as a treat for yourself and also for gifts. These are available in department stores and online at www.cathkidston.co.uk, great fun!
