{Design Team} New Makes and A New Fabric


This months makes from our Design Team are a bit special for two reasons.  Firstly, they are different to anything I've seen (and I see a lot of crafty stuff!) and secondly, they use a fabric that is going on sale in our shop today!

This is what they were sent.....


Looks like a napkin, but it is a FQ of a new fabric to us Michael Miller's Mod Blooms in White and a metre of co-ordinating turquoise spotty ribbon

I think they will all agree this months was a more difficult one as the print on the fabric is quite large.  However, they did not disappoint and this months makes are all so different from each other!  Anyway, here's what they came up with....

Emma at Sweet Williams made the most amazing fabric basket.  The pink spotty lining is a perfect match and sets off the flowers beautifully!  She also came up with a lavender bag and, having seen a fair few lavender bags in my time, I think its fair to say this modern fabric jazzes it up!  Both will be available to buy via Emma's facebook page.

Rachael from Sew Ray Me also made two gorgeous makes this month and really showed off the fabric well.  Rachael used embroidery to make some of the detail really stand out (in her words, she picked some co-ordinating threads and just started sewing!).  She then backed it onto some gingham and made it into this really sweet notebook cover, using the ribbon as detail on the front and as a book mark.

Having some fabric left, Rachaels second make was some lovely lavender pouches and again, this fabric makes them look so modern.  She finished them off with little ribbon tags.

Lane over at Willowlane Designs came up with THE most adorable 0-3 month baby skirt.  She used the Mod Bloom fabric for the top layer and underneath made a co-ordinating green skirt, all with an elasticated waist.  What a fantastic idea, this fabric would make some amazing kids clothes for the summer (should the summer ever decide to make an appearance).  I got the chance to see this on its owner on the weekend and I think she liked it a lot!

Elli from Heartstitch, inspired by how bright and sunny this fabric is, took her thoughts to sunny places and created this fantastic passport cover.

As Elli said, this project is small enough to finish in an hour or so but big enough to suit the print.  Such a unique make and so well made, a must for anyone going on holiday this year! 

Feeling inspired?!  We hope so.  Its been another month of dazzling talent from our Design Team!  Do pop over to their blogs to say hi. 


The new fabric is now in the shop and can be purchased here.  We'd love to see what you create with it!
