Crick-et (noun) Leaping chirping insect. A leaping insect that has biting mouth parts, long legs and antennea.

This upcycled fabric kit is certainly loaded with the little chirpers! With bright red crickets on a background of red and white stripes, it's perhaps one of the most unique vintage prints I've seen. Quirky with a capital "Q". It's most importanly an earth friendly way to get your craft on! I've totally dismantled a vintage shirt that'd passed it's fashion prime (obviously) and given it a chance at new life as buggy, funky fabric pieces. I tried to use as much of the shirt as possible and the rest I kept for other craft projects - so nothing was wasted! There are over 25 pieces and though they are cleanly cut, they do vary in size, shape and squareness. There are some notable parts though, such as the original buttons, a neat-o looking label, a pocket and the crisp, sharp edged collar that could be cut and used as rad geometric appeal for your project. I can envision quilts, bags, toys, pin cushions and any number of crafty creations here! And to get you started, I'll include a fun pattern too! (Please note you may need more / less fabric and / or supplies to complete said pattern than is included in this kit. It's just a happy suggestion!) By buying upcycled fabric you are keeping material out of the landfill and lessening the demand for new. A greener way to craft! The specifics on this bundle are: 50% cotton, 50% avril rayon, wash separately in warm water. This material has been pre-washed in eco-friendly suds. I ship with USPS. If you have any questions, just drop me a line! Thanks for stopping by!
