What with the market, new crafters taking up spaces and a whole host of classes and parties to organise, we’ve had so much going on in the shop recently that we haven’t managed to show off any of our new fabrics in a long time. So this week we thought we would take a bit of a breather, and in a final few days of calm before the storm of December hits, give you the chance to see what new bits and bobs have arrived in the shop recently. Think of it as the antidote to Black Friday – this is Quiet and Contemplative Browsing of lovely fabrics. Enjoy …
We picked up some extra last minute Christmassy patterns at the Makower open day in Henley the other day: bold and bright stars, and quirky hand drawn festive cars.
And some metallics which could also work in other seasons, but seem very appropriate for this time of year. we love a bit of bling every now and then, but especially the sophisticated kind.
We’ve also got our hands on some lovely new jersey from Germany again, including these super duper funky skulls, and space prints. The black stars are actually a sweat shirt material, which we’re becoming a little obsessed with – making your own comfy and cosy hoodies is very appealing when the wind is blowing a gale outside.
Fun and perfect for kids, these rainbow hedgehogs and cute foxes and will make excellent t shirts and leggings for little ones.
A few rather grown up prints snuck into out trolley at Makower, which we know is most unlike us, but occasionally we like to pretend we can behave like proper adults. Simple spots, tiny flowers, pale lines and stripes, hexagons and a little bit more Sherwood, because you can never have too much – ideal for quilters or some sophisticated dress making projects.
And back to the crazy stuff – some incredibly bright flamingos and these very adorable pink and coral cats.
