Craft on the go

Friday, February 17th, 2012

I don’t know if it happens to you but the more I sew, knit, crochet or stitch I want to do, sort of a crazy addiction.

I have noticed that when I am sat watching tv of waiting for something I want to do some sort of handcraft… sometimes is cross-stitch some other times is knitting but either way I just see it as an opportunity to do something.
I usually drag my projects from one sofa to another in a shopping bag or an old handbag, so I thought it was time to make a proper caddy for my stitching… and here it is!

Craft caddy

Do you like it?

I used Sandi Henderson’s Modern Meadow in Midnight as the main fabric and some navy blue canvas that I had in my stash. I was very tempted to use Vintage Ironwork or any other of the fabrics from the same collection, but the first fabric is so pretty and bold that I wanted to really give it central stage and use a solid fabric for the rest of the bag.

I followed the original pattern to the letter, it has 3 front pockets (can you see them??) and 3 dividers inside.  As I tend to have more than one project on the go (and who doesn’t?!?!) I am thinking of making a second one, this time without the dividers and using 2 (or  maybe even 3) of Riley Blake’s Daisy Cottage fabrics.

Do you have a bag for your projects?  Share some pictures in our Flickr group or in facebook :)

Sunday Stash #9

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Are you having a good weekend?  Mine started early and wow! it would be so wrong to complain!  Lovely guests, good weather (most of the time), lots of food, fantastic wine, and a bit of shopping, not much because I can’t run out of funds because there is new fabric coming in September and I don’t want to disappoint you.

Enough of that and let’s go straight to the point.  Today’s Sunday Stash are two fabrics that I adore.

Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market fabrics have bold design, great colours, and they can take you gracefully into autumn, check them out and let me know what you think.

Bank Holiday Weekend Sale

Friday, August 27th, 2010

We all look forward for a bit of a break in our routines to do a bit of what we love but we never have time for it.  For me bank holidays are that, a fantastic opportunity to do a bit of sewing, a lot of shopping and, yes you have guessed it, an awful lot of eating.

I thought that you will enjoy this break even more if you could get our most popular fabric ranges at a great price during this last Bank Holiday of the year.  If you are not in the UK and this is not a long weekend for you, what a great way to freshen up a weekend that with a bit of fabric shopping!

Have a quick look at our shop and you will find all Michael Miller fabrics, Sandi Henderson‘s designs and colourful Patty Young‘s creation with wa 15% off their regular price.

This sale, like the bank holiday, will only last until midnight Monday 30th August, just before everything goes back to normal, so be quick and make sure you grab one of those fantastic designs.

Have a fantastic weekend,
