We’re proud to introduce the SEW-A-SAURUS, the first sewing kit from Sew What’s New.  The kit contains all the essentials to make a fantastic dinosaur tail.

Since winning the Great British Sewing Bee I have been working on the design of the SEW-A-SAURUS, writing the instructions, designing and producing the kits right here in Great Britain.  The kit is designed for all levels of stitchers and on average takes 2-4 hours to make with a sewing machine.

Our kids have loved dressing up and playing with these tactile tails which are suitable to fit ages 3 years +.  To make sure we have something for everyone we have carefully sourced a great range of colours to suit every little monsters tastes.

Simply grab yourself a kit and maximise your sewing time.  I’m very happy to sign any kits with a personal message, send me your personal message via contact seller when you place your order.  Matt x

“I’ve always been nervous of using my machine for anything more than straight lines so I was really pleased how well this turned out. My four year old loved stomping and roaring in her tail and her older brother commented: It looks like something you bought in a shop. Result!”

“I am not a natural with a sewing machine – indeed the idea of making something using mine is one that fills me with dread, or at least it used to.  Then a little while ago I was asked to make a dinosaur tail using a sewasaurus kit and I have to say I’m a convert!  I made a fantastic tail that my son was proud to wear.”

“It has been a real pleasure to sew with such comprehensive instructions and good quality craft kit contents. Despite not being the most experienced of sewers I finished each tail in good, hassle free time and my daughters (5 and 8) have heaps of fun romping and roaring around the house in them.”
