Make your own tiger Buckthorn!
We've taken the hassle out of sourcing all the right hardware, notions and materials and put together a kit containing everything you'll need to sew yourself a groovy tiger backpack.
We've made sure all the materials are high quality so that your sewing experience is as good as it can be and to make sure the bag will last - it's too cool not to!
If you don't already have the pattern, you can choose to add it when you check out.
Noodlehead patterns have excellent instructions and are great for beginners or those new to bag-making.
The kit contains: 70cm piece tiger print jacquard (this is also available separately in our shop)
91cm piece super smooth black linen for the lining
a 16" black YKK bag zip
a set of Prym hardware in gunmetal finish (2 x adjustable buckle, 2x triangle
ring and 2x snap hook)
130cm piece Vilene G700 medium-weight woven fusible interfacing in white
45cm piece Vilene Style-Vil sew-in bag foam
3.8m piece black cotton 40mm webbing
optional: Buckthorn sewing pattern
All you'll need are your sewing equipment (a rotary cutter, self-healing mat and gridded ruler makes cutting out the pieces a doddle!), sewing machine, some sort of marking tool (we like simple tailor's chalk) and polyester sew-all thread.
The tiger jacquard is 60% polyester and 40% cotton and should be ironed on medium. It frays quite a lot but it looks so gorgeous it's worth it! The black linen is a finely woven 100% linen and can take all the heat you can throw at it.
We have packaged this simply in tissue and brown paper. The Prym hardware and sewing pattern have been left in their retail packaging.
Due to limited supply we are only making a few of these kits and they are only available in the UK.
NOTE: Noodlehead doesn't include pattern pieces for square or rectangular parts of the make, just the cutting measurements - we recommend a gridded ruler, cutting mat and rotary cutter to cut your pieces accurately!
