Doodle Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon November 2015 - booklet

This month’s project is a furoshiki tote bag! This is the booklet that came in our box this month. My nine-year-old was not interested in this project, so I did this one with my seven-year old. He was really excited to make something that he could use as a Christmas gift for someone!

Here’s a peek inside the booklet at the instructions. The instructions were clear and well illustrated, so they were easy for my son to follow.

These are all the supplies that were included for this month’s project. Everything we needed was included except water and a large bowl.

We explored two different shibori dyeing techniques this month. Doodle Crate sent us two sample cloths for this purpose. This was the first technique, and it came out quite lovely, if a little subtle.

This was the second technique / cloth. My son loved the way this one turned out, and so did I! He decided to use this technique for the main project. Meanwhile, these both turned out so nice that he is gifting these to my husband to use as napkins or pocket squares or???

This is my son’s completed tote bag, and it’s just beautiful! This is seriously an impressive piece! My sister-in-law is actually going to really love this as a gift!

The Verdict: Doodle Crate rules! My seven-year-old is a little under their suggested age, so I did have to help him quite a bit with this project, but the results were so worth it! This particular project took several days (mostly of waiting for the dye to process), but again, completely worth it. With all Kiwi Crate products, I am consistently amazed by the quality fo the materials and the overall value, and Doodle Crate is no exception.
