Entangled & Ingested Sewing Kit

Regular price $19.99 USD
Regular price Sale price $19.99 USD
Bring the Entangled and Ingested project into your home or classroom with these fairy penguin sewing kits.

This kit includes:
** an 8 x 10 inch piece of 7-ounce weight cotton artist's canvas imprinted with an image of the adorable fairy penguin
** enough thread to complete the project
** a sturdy, large-eyed needle
** action card detailing how you can help solve the problem of plastic pollution

You supply:
** film plastic
** creativity

The final photo is an example of a completed piece-- this is not included in your order. You will create something like this when you sew film plastic onto the canvas.

Best of all, the kit does NOT use plastic packaging. From the glassine envelope (fully recyclable) holding the kit, to the re-useable needle, cotton thread, and the recycled paper content action card-- care has been taken to make this a guilt-free, plastic-free gift for the environmentalist in your life.

Perfect for summer camps, after-school programs, babysitter activity bags, car trips, environmental clubs, scout troops, craft clubs, wine+sewing nights (aka stitch and bitch).

Fantastic for crafters and hobbyists looking for something new as well as for serious artists who can learn the methods with this project, then embark on their own design.

Instructional sewing videos available on the artist's Youtube:

The fairy penguin is one of hundreds of species harmed by entanglement and ingestion from plastic pollution.
The artist Katharine Owens is conducting a multi-year art project to create life sized portraits of the animals most at risk. She creates the portraits by hand-sewing film plastic waste that is difficult to recycle onto canvas.
The largest pieces (think whales) are created with the public. Hundreds of community members have sewed along on her projects to date. Follow the project at

The fairy penguin (Eudyptula minor) or little penguin is native to New Zealand.
