All the supplies needed are listed in the pattern. Purchase them from your local craft store, or via the web. Below, I’ve shared two of my favorite online shops.

And yes — these are affiliate links. Using them won’t cost you anything extra, but if you do you’ll be helping to fund my tea habit (a crucial part of my creative process). So thank you! 🙂

It’s basically a kit that you can customize, or purchase as is. The other awesome part?
