We’ve always liked ZenChic’s style. Her new signature collection ‘For You‘ has splashes of bright colours popping from calm lighter backgrounds.

Hello Darling‘ is Bonnie and Camille’s cheeriest collection yet, with plenty of beautiful florals, dots, bias stripes and vintage ribbon.

With the ‘Neco‘ collection, Momo is stlll designing fantasy worlds inhabited by cute cats and hedgehogs.

Bunny Hill Design’s ‘Kindred Spirit’ collection was designed as a celebration of life and a testament to women who have fought Breast Cancer. This gorgeous collection has plenty of pinks, as it should.

Typical design by Me and My Sister, ‘Hi De Ho‘ features bright and cheerful colours that have a real retro feel featuring flowers, dragonflies and stripes.

Designed by April Rosenthal, ‘Meadowbloom‘ was designed to be happy, and springy, and all the beautiful vibrant colours that remind us of a huge field of wildflowers.

 

Colourful, bold and contemporary, these pre-cuts would bless any quilting or crafting project.

They are not really for Christmas makes, but I think I’m going to buy myself a couple as Christmas presents.

Pinterest inspiration for Moda Winterberry

Maybe you are thinking that now might be the time to start thinking about some seasonal crafting ideas. Moda Winterberry fabric is a brilliant choice.

We created a Pinterest board to give you a starting point and you can find it here. Or just pop to the website Winterberry fabric page or have a look at our nice Winterberry charm packs.

Tutu’s & Scarves.

I have been busy making Christmas presents and thought I would share these ones with you. I have 2 young niece’s to make gifts for , the youngest is 4 and the eldest is 9 so I was delighted to find this FREE pattern from Oliver + S that you can pick up from their blog. The Onstage Tutu skirt. We stock a selection of Oliver + S patterns so it was good to try this one out, the instructions were really clear and by the time I was on my second one I flew through the making of it.

Onstage Tutu SkirtI chose to use some of our spotty Georgette fabrics rather than Tutu fabric, its light weight and sheer so it drapes beautifully;

You could also use voile or cotton lawn, and we have some rather lovely crinoline that would work wonderfully with this pattern too, I just used lining fabric for the main body of the skirt and I love the way you turn it out at the top to form a waist band. You only need a small amount of fabric (basically the length you require + 5 inches) so it was a really cheap, quick and easy make.

Another quick and easy make are scarves, I am making several of these using some of our lush and lightweight crepe fabrics, half a metre is enough for one. All you do is hem all the way around to finish the edges, it’s that easy! And at £2.30 for half a metre another reasonably priced gift!

Have you been making your Christmas presents this year? I would love to know what everybody else is making for their family and friends.

This week I made some Christmas gifts using some of the new Christmas fabric range that we have got at Trixie Lixie, its called Folk Art Holiday

Next I made a little half apron using the instructions from Cath Kidston’s book SEW!

There are lots of great things to make in this book,
