What I love about the Klutz brand, is that you get everything that you need in one easy, compact box/book/container and with a clear book of instructions that you can keep long after the items are used up you can keep on making things for as long as you desire.

This kit would be perfect for someone interested in fashion (could have only been better if pants/shorts were an option) or someone who just likes to make little crafty things. Myself, I thought these would be perfect for 3D cards once I get more capable at making these items.

With 15 different design instructions there is a great room for variety, mixing and matching and possibly also good for using them as templates for fabric in the future to make clothes for a toy. This is reusable, pop all the plastic parts in a container and pull it out next rainy day which makes it well worth the money spent.

All in all this is a great product, I can myself getting a bit confused when it gets more complicated, but that may just be me.

Well if you have young girls interested in fashion or in dressmaking then this is the perfect gift.

I love the box it came in. It held everything well and looks really cool so if you are giving this for a gift it looks pretty impressive without even opening it. The box contained 18 pattern pieces which are a very cool hot pink colour and plastic ie very durable. There is also a stencil sheet for the smaller pieces ie pockets, collars shoes etc. There are 6 colours of tissue paper, and more than 35 different colours and patterns on 20 pieces of double sided paper about the texture of origami paper.

The instruction book contains 68 pages of ideas and instructions to make some very unique and fashionable bags, clothes and shoes.

There is a small kit of glue, clear cord, ribbon and 500 sequins as well as five small plastic hangers and three dress stands.

Miss Five immediately asked where the doll was to dress in the clothes... We decided that making Barbie some clothes would be the next step!

I just loved this. Although it was all a bit fiddly for Miss Five she really enjoyed working with me to do this and as she gets older I think this will be a great activity for her. Whilst this kit is designed for paper I think it is a good start before moving onto fabric and helps cement the basics of pattern making and design. I have a bix odds and ends box so we have a heap of buttons and ribbon and other items that we had out as well.

Whilst the stands etc are great our items were played with and trashed pretty quickly! I imagine as they get a bit older there is more care taken in looking after the creations! I can't wait actually for my girls to be into doing this by themselves Smile Icon

I would definitely recommend this for a girl aged about 8 years up. Enjoy! - I did Smile Icon

The Fashion Forms set and book from Klutz is a little fashion designer's dream. This set reminds me of long afternoons spent with paper and my fashion stencils back in the 80s. I use to love creating new looks and showcasing them to my mum.

This set offers a similar thing. Its totally arts and crafts, with all its glue, sequins and paper. But its also fashion design. With everything you need to make amazing paper fashion pieces. I thought the accessories in this set were really cool. You get some nice paper, as well as tissue if you want to make ruffles. These ribbon and sparkles to dress the designs up. The glue is good quality, dries clear and has a lid which sometimes craft kits lack.

The other cool thing about the set is the pattern pieces. They are just like dress-maker pattern templates but mini. They are easy to use, and the instructions are really clear. There are even helpful hints in the book about how to use the glue and scissors. Kind of common sense stuff on the surface, but for kids it is advice gold.

The book is filled with neat ideas, and examples of what you can achieve. You can make anything really, apart from trousers. I also liked that they made it clear on the pack what is not included so you could get those things ready before moving ahead with the creating. You can also source other papers too and it suggests you do so for some designs.

Unfortunately, my daughter didn't have a lot of patience for this. At 5 I think it was a bit too fiddly for her. She was very excited about it, but her interest faded and I was left to put her idea into action. An older child would probably handle this better. I can imagine it would be a fab school holiday treat for a fashion mad pre-teen. I personally loved it.

Product image for When the CatJust how much trouble can three teens get into when Mum and Dad are away on holiday?

Okay, so the parents think Aunty Jean is looking after them, and Aunty Jean thinks the neighbour is... but in truth, 18-year-old Jodi, 15-year-old Nathan and 14-year-old Bianca are on their own.

And when a party gets out of control and the house is trashed, suddenly they're in big trouble - the 'grounded for life' ... more...
