Hole House 'Frame Bag' Sewing Kit x Thistledown Marl


Hole House ‘Frame Bag’ Sewing Kit

This is a physical product that will be dispatched to you from Fabworks (Yorkshire, UK). This product supplies you with almost everything that you need in one neat bundle to be able to create the Frame Bag by Hole House Patterns, an independent UK-based designer whom we worked with in 2019 for a similar collaboration. For extra notions required for this pattern please see the Additional Resources section below.

Each sewing kit consists of:

  • 0.5m x Primary Fabric
  • 0.5m x Secondary Fabric
  • 0.5m x Liberty cotton lawn
  • 1m x Interfacing
  • 2 x thread bobbins
  • 1 x Fabworks Heart of Huddersfield Label
  • Hole House Frame bag pattern (optional extra)

Further detailed breakdown of each sewing kit:

  • 0.5m x (Primary Fabric) Thistledown Marl wool in a colour of your choosing
    • This is the main / top fabric for your Frame Bag (see Image 4 for example)
  • 0.5m x (Secondary Fabric) Heart of Huddersfield wool, either: Marled Melton / Thistledown Marl / Yorkshire Melton
    • This is the lower / bottom fabric for your Frame Bag (see Image 4 for example)
  • 0.5m x Complimentary Liberty cotton lawn for lining the inside of your Frame Bag
    • We have selected one coordinating Liberty cotton per Primary Fabric that will automatically be included with your kit. (See photos for coordinations)
  • 1m x Medium weight iron-on/fusible interfacing (Vlieseline)
  • 2 x Gutermann sew-all threads in the coordinating colour to Thistledown Marl suitable for use on sewing machines
  • 1 x Fabworks Heart of Huddersfield Label
  • Hole House Frame bag pattern (optional extra)


We suggest using Thistledown Marl as the Primary Fabric on your Frame Bag, whilst incorporating either one of Marled Melton / Yorkshire Melton / Thistledown Marl as the Secondary Fabric (secondary fabric used as the base of the bag). Use the 3 dropdown menus to select your Primary and Secondary fabrics as well as the optional extra of with/without Frame Bag pattern.

You will receive a complimentary Liberty cotton lawn to use as the lining for the bag, please note that this does not appear in the dropdown menu. See photos of coordinating Liberty fabrics that will be included with each sewing kit, based on Primary Fabric (Thistledown Marl) colour choice.

If you do not yet have a copy of the pattern make sure to select the With Frame Bag Pattern option before proceeding to the checkout.
