Looks like a pair of curtains
Well, hopefully not (!) but that’s how this fabric started life.
Last week I shared some of my favourite new vintage fabric finds, one of them was this love heart print cotton – which arrived as a pair of curtains. I carefully cut out as much fabric as I could and had just enough to make a Tilly and the Buttons Bettine dress.
Here’s a bit of vintage fabric eye candy for you, my most recent haul consists of valentine’s day prints and a floral bark cloth. I’m planning to share my favourite finds from my vintage fabric hunting each month, so stay tuned for more, enjoy!
It’s been pretty miserable outdoors recently and there aren’t many flea markets or boot sales in January.
So, I’ve been doing the majority of my fabric hunting online. Snuggled up by the wood burner with the dogs at my feet and a steaming cup of tea, it’s not been too taxing really.
Here are a few of my favourites…
Some tea towels are too nice to use, I often pick them up at flea markets because I love the designs but I’m never sure what to do with them, until now!
If you get the right ind of tea towels the fabric is great quality and perfectly robust enough for a tote bag. Here’s how to sew the easiest tote bag ever! Upcycling your tea towels into a tote bag couldn’t be easier!
Happy new year, here’s to a wonderful 2017! And in the spirit of new year’s resolutions I’m kicking off this new feature on the blog today. Each month I’ll be sharing my latest upcycled sewing projects so stay tuned for more current stitches coming soon.
I love to sew clothing from my collection of vintage, floral fabrics. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or followed me on Pinterest the chances are that you have an as unhealthy floral and vintage fabric addiction as me.
So let’s indulge shall we? And this is one of my absolute favourites – vintage Sanderson, you just can’t beat it!
It’s nearly Christmas and we’re all giving our Christmas trees a final spruce (if you’ll pardon the pun) for the big day. To keep my Christmas pheasant tree topper company over Christmas I’ve made mini Christmas pheasant tree decorations. They’re super simple, here’s how.
Fancy breaking with tradition this year? I’ve got just the thing for the top of your tree! Mr Pheasant, he’s very festive with his glittering crown and bow tie so he’ll look just the part as your tree topper for this year! Here’s how to make your own Christmas pheasant tree topper.
Merry Christmas all, I hope you’ve got an extremely festive few days planned with plenty of mince pie and mulled wine consumption.
Here’s a 100% foraged Christmas wreath that I made earlier this month. Even the base is just made of willow and moss, super easy, here’s how.
Waiting for Christmas to come? So is this little fella, and he’s obviously expecting a bumper haul.
You too can whip up a Christmas stocking in no time, to hang up on Christmas eve. I made mine out of this vintage inspired, kitsch Christmas fabric which I absolutely adore. And a nod to the more traditional style with a tartan top. Here’s how easy it is to make a Christmas stocking.
