Random Acts of Craftiness!

Random Acts of Craftiness Banner

Imagine it is Monday morning, it is a cold and dreary day.  You are slowly making your way to the train station for another long week of work ahead.  Suddenly, something catches your eye, there is something colourful tied to the telegraph pole in front of you.  As you get closer, you discover a beautiful handmade toy inside a clear plastic bag.  You open the bag and peek inside.  There is a tag attached to a gorgeous little handmade toy owl saying,  "Want me? Take Me! I'm yours!".  You have just been struck by a Tittle + Tat "Random Act of Craftiness".  You suddenly have a spring in your step and a smile on your face as you continue your journey to work with your new found friend.

The intention behind the 'Tittle + Tat, Random Acts of Craftiness', is to promote and spread the love of handmade and Indie Design.  Also to brighten up someone's day with a random act of kindness.   The growing trend in consumerism towards a world of mass produced 'sameness' is contributing to a very boring and homogenised world.  Be part of the revolution and help bring awareness back to the simple joys in life. 

How does it work?

Simply send an email to us here and request a  "Random Acts of Craftiness" Kit which will include everything you need to make your toy (excluding materials).  You will be sent an email with a PDF pattern and step-by-step instructions on how to make a very cute and simple soft owl.  This gorgeous pattern of a 'Wise Little Owl' was kindly donated by Laura Rawson from Doilies and Dreams. You can find more Wise Little Owl friends and more of Laura's work in her Tittle + Tat Store.

Of course you don't have to use our 'Wise Owl' pattern you can make any toy you wish.  You will also be sent all the instructions, materials list and printables to go with your toy to allow you to complete your "Random Act of Craftiness"

 

Take me home Im yours to keep

As a "Handmade Love Spreader" you are encouraged to take a photo of your toy packaged up with a note in the public space when you are leaving it for someone to find. If you could then please email the pictures along with a little bit about yourself and why you wanted to be a part of the "Random Acts of Craftiness Movement" to Tittle + Tat.  These stories will be shared on the Tittle + Tat blog and Facebook pages.   The person who finds your toy is also invited to share their 'found' story and if they contact us we will we be sure to contact the 'maker' to let them know their toy was found.
