Everything you need to make a simple shrug is in this Brightside kit. No need to worry about choosing the right fabric, you don't even have to worry about the thread, just get your kit and start sewing!

The Brightside is a small bolero style shrug which is a quick project and a really versatile style - it's small enough to keep your neck and shoulders warm but small enough to fold away into a bag when you're not wearing it. Layered with t-shirts and jeans is a cute alternative to baggy jumpers.  Once you've made one, you're going to make loads of these! 

This design is easy and quick to sew, making it a great project for beginners that have just started to sew - my beginner sewing students love this project.  It's a good one for sewing homemade gifts and a kit makes the perfect gift for a new stitcher.

I have carefully selected some of the most beautiful quality dressmaking fabrics that are perfect for making MIY Collection sewing patterns. Kits are ideal for absolute beginners and the Brightside is an easy, quick sew.

What's in the Kit?

  • a copy of the printed paper version of the Brightside Shrug pattern (which can be re-used to make more shrugs!)
  • the right quantity of a beautiful cotton rich French Terry / lightweight loopback sweatshirt knitted fabric to make one shrug
  • a reel of matching colour Gutermann polyester sewing thread.

All fabrics included in kits should be pre-washed before use, the amount of fabric included in the kit is enough to make one shrug and allows for shrinkage that will occur when the fabric is pre-washed. Washing instructions are included.

There is a choice of 3 colours of fabric for your kit: grey, green/grey stripe and black/grey stripe.
