Birdhouse Canister Pattern & Kit

A Threaded Needle

11" x 8" Birdhouses Canister. This is the kit for our newsletter 3 part make along which is starting July 17, 2018. If you get our newsletter then you don't need to buy the pattern, it will be part of the make along.  You don't have to buy the kit either, I'll put a materials list here. Just see what is in your stash, then order what you need. Also note the kit will be in the sandy brown/cream taupe color range but will not be the exact fabrics shown in the photo.

If you don't get our newsletter and you want to make this project you can order the pattern and kit together here.   And if you want to sign up for future projects in dyed yarn fabrics and/or sashiko projects, you can do that at the bottom of this page.

Finished canister is approx. 11" high and 8" in diameter. The Soft & Stable enables it to stand upright and open when empty.
