Fabric Packs


I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely Easter weekend. We are just waiting for the roast to be cooked and then there is a huge family meal to be had (roast lamb- lovely) with the extended family members. Whilst in this pre-lunch moment, I feel the need to talk shop. Our new shop!!! Well, revised and updated shop in a box!

The Mother and I have had an idea. We have so many fabrics, buttons, beads, trimmings, ribbons and exciting bits that we cannot possibly use them all and therefore have created some lovely colour co-ordinating fabrics packs for you to buy and use. You could either add the bits to your own stash or use them to create something beautiful. Therein lies the challenge!! What can you make?

The variety of materials we have collected is amazing and there are so many memories being brought to the surface as we remember individual projects the fabrics were initially bought for, or the bewilderment as we pull out fabric after fabric of which we have no idea of the source. Occasionally we have found things we have lost which brings lots of excitement and more careful filing for later use.

We are working through the boxes at the weekends and putting them together, carefully choosing what goes with what (whilst making sure that there aren't too many of the same types of fabric in one pack), pressing, straightening the edges, layering them up and debating over what haberdashery items to add, then photographing, editing the photos and finally popping them onto our Etsy shop. There is a lot of work that goes in to them to get each pack from our box to your letter box.
Currently they are costing between £10 and £15 with free UK postage, and you will always get a variety of materials regardless of what pack you go for.
So, if you are interested in buying a pack, be it for yourself to try or for a fabric loving friend, then you can find us on Etsy, either with the button on the right hand side of the blog page, or by clicking the link here. Be sure to favourite the shop or item so that you can find it again easily.
Ziggy is also very keen on the packs and checks them over one by one before we can send them- he thinks he is Minister of Quality Control!
