Franco & Fiona pattern

Backstitch is a real ‘must visit’ shop if you are interested in buying funky sewing patterns. New in are some gorgeous patterns for kids’ clothes by Figgy’s. These are great value too because each pattern has two different styles. I particularly like this Franco & Fiona- it’s great that Figgy’s make these patterns that include styles for boys & girls. You can read more about these lovely patterns on the Backstitch blog.

Skirt pattern from Make it PerfectWhile we’re on the subject of patterns, another place to check out is Gone to Earth (not that you need a reason to call round at Gone to Earth!), where you’ll find the lovely Make it Perfect range. Apparently these are flying off the shelves, and I’m not surprised, because they look fab. I particularly like this skirt pattern – it’s definitely an A-line with a twist, which I’m sure would be really flattering for most people. Read more about the range at the Gone to Earth blog.

Innocent Crush Fat 8th Bundle from M is for MakeIf you’re a fan of the Innocent Crush fabrics by Anna Maria Horner then you need to pop round to M is for Make where there’s currently a 20% discount. There’s also some other great fabrics (Echino, Cloud9, Melody Miller) in the M is for Make sale section, with up to 40% off.

Watch the Birdies embroidered ribbon at Blooming FeltNew in at Blooming Felt are these gorgeous embroidered ribbons… they’re all so cute that I can’t decide which one I like the best (there’s bunting, love-birds & roses) … but I think that these cute birdies just pip the others at the post.

Griffith Park from Alexander Henry at SeamstarLots of shops now have Sherbert Pips by Aneela Hoey, Wing It by Momo and Cut Out and Keep by Heather Moore – and very lovely they all are too.  But if you’re after something different, some fabric I’ve spotted that isn’t so widely available is a very funky range called Griffith Park from Alexander Henry, available at Seamstar. I love the yellow shades particularly – I think these would be gorgeous for summer clothes.

And finally, a giveaway for you. The Eternal Maker are giving away 4 Fat Quarters of Melody Miller’s Ruby Star Rising over on the always fabulous Pings & Needles blog. You have until Monday 30 May to enter. Good luck!
