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!

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.
