BT is closed throughout the month of January for stocktake - online orders are processed as normal.
The Booby Traps Story....
At Booby Traps we love bra making!
Booby Traps was first established in 1982 by Jill Bradshaw. Being the the first bra kit company, Booby Traps has had many years of experience in providing customers with good quality bra kits in a lovely range of colours and finishes. We really enjoy creating kits to suit many different tastes, and love sharing our knowledge and experience.
Booby Traps supplies bra kits to sewing fans around Australia and New Zealand. Due to many requests from overseas customers, we are now making our products available internationally.
We also have our own Booby Traps Bra making DVD and video and our own BT bra, lingerie and briefs patterns. With many more to be launched in the future.
We are lucky enough to have some of our lovely customers modelling for the BT website. Yes, these girls are not professional! You would not know, as they look so fabulous showcasing the haberdashery and kits.
It is sometimes hard to see what the end result will look like, and we enjoy having encuses to sit down and use our own bra kits!
We are still searching for lovely plus sized and mature age models - so if you fit the bill - please contact us. We would love to have you as part of our photo shoot!
Booby Traps sells direct from our warehouse as a wholesaler to other businesses including swimwear, lingerie and bra-making small businesses.
We also sell direct to the public and stock a number of bra fabrics, including Elastane and Powernet, folding elastic, facing elastics, bra strapping, underwires, moulded cups, laces, fabrics, patterns, needles and other haberdashery items. Our haberdashery range is ever growing and we love to offer a large variety of finshes and colours to accomodate many styles and projects.
The warehouse is set-up and conducts sewing classes and workshops on a regular basis. To see what classes we are currently running please visit our sewing classes page.
Booby Traps is developing larger ranges of kits including many new exciting bra kits, brief kits and lingerie kits to be released. Booby Traps has realsed a large number of lovely new lingerie, briefs and bra patterns with more to come. Stay abreast, pardon the pun, of our newest releases, classes and products by registering for our newsletter on our website.
