Make Your Monster with a MYO kit! Donna Wilson designed these Make Your Own Kits as a way of giving a new life to all the little knitted offcuts in their studio. And they now mulch up all the smaller scraps to make their super-special recycled lambs wool stuffing.
Each kit contains a pre-stitched creature shape, wool stuffing, felt bits and bobs, and step-by-step instructions to make your very own unique Loch Ness Monster.
The contents of each Make Your Own Loch Ness Monster Kit are unique, and the monster pictured on the box is just one example of what you might make – let your creativity run wild.
Not suitable for children under the age of 3 years.
Made in the UK.
Donna Wilson’s story starts in rural Aberdeenshire, where she spent her childhood on her parents’ farm. "We used to have an old hen house that became a cabin of craft . . . a place to hide from adults and have adventures. I would create sculptures from branches and twigs, make mud pies and serve them in old pots and pans," she says. Through these early experiments, she developed a love for the natural landscape, wildlife, and of course, making things—mostly from textiles, using handcrafted techniques such as felting, sewing, knitting, and wrapping. When she was old enough, Donna packed her bags and set off for London, where she honed her home-taught talents at the Royal College of Art. It was there that she knitted her very first creatures and began selling them to local shops in the city.
