Frumble do a fab 'essentials' range which is only £7 per metre which is cheap when you compare it to the fabrics which have to be imported from the USA which are usually nearer £13 per metre. I was really impressed with the designs on offer and the quality.
These were in the essentials range too
I couldn't resist this Michael Miller 'Hearts' fabric.
Each heart is made up of lots of little flowers.
Another Michael Miller fabric. Wonder who this is for?!
This is really cute too. Have already made a little bandana bib out of this for a colleague at work who is going on maternity leave. Going to do a tutorial very soon!
STOP PRESS: Sew Scrumptious actually sews something!!
Also want to say a huge thank you to the lovely Roberta in Germany who sent me a box full of dresses for the Dress a Girl - UK appeal. They are all beautiful. Nine in total!
I think this was my favourite. A really summery stripey fabric
with gorgeous butterfly pockets
Love this vibrant blue fabric too. There were 2 of these lovely dresses
cute little pockets
and co-ordinating ties
Two of these lovely dresses as well. Love the handmade bias binding and ties which co-ordinate with the pockets.
Another lovely stripey dress this time with flower pockets
and 2 dresses made from this lovely patchwork fabric
Love the trim on the pockets
The second one with red trim
and last but not least a pretty blue and pink fabric with co-ordinating pink ties.
Thanks so much Roberta. This takes our total to 427. I've just made a contact who may be able to take some of our dresses to India in the New Year where they will be given to a day care centre to distribute and also to abandoned and homeless girls.
