Riley Blake is back!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

For those of you that have not noticed it we have got some Riley Blake designs in the shop and they are ridiculously pretty. So Sophie collection is, well, so Riley Blake, very cute, great colours, and as usual they are patterns that will make a child smile and a grown up crave for them.

If you have never bought Riley Blake fabrics I must warn you, they are highly addictive.

These are a few images of some of the fabrics that are in stock, but if you want to see all come on over and check them out. There will be more fabrics arriving soon, we will keep you updated, don’t you worry.

 

New year, new bag

Monday, January 16th, 2012

A while a go when I got the Liberty Book of Sewing I felt in love with a few of the patterns and some when straight onto my list, and right on the top was this tote bag. I had a bit of this fabric and I loved it so much that I wanted to make something special, so when I was wondering what to make for my mum’s Christmas present I thought that this Sandi Henderson’s fabric will be perfect to make into a big, roomy bag.

The pattern is very simple, and I thought that the flowers of the fabric pattern will be the start of the show. I got red leather handles that look like they were made for this fabric.

For the lining I used Linen to keep it simple, but I used the main fabric for the inside pocket. I also add a string for keys, it was not on the original pattern but those little things are very simple to add and are extremely useful.

These are not the best photos I have taken but the light was not on my side. I must say I am very proud of this bag. It was a joy working with this fabric and the handles make it look so professional, don’t you think?

I hope it turns out to be a good and useful present. This is the sort of bag that I drag everywhere with me, big enough that you can carry even a small project with you, and all your necessities.
