New fabrics, kits and projects from my sponsors

Here are some of the things that have caught my eye with my sponsors over the last couple of weeks.

Tunic Kit at Dragonfly Fabrics
I love this gorgeous tunic pattern by Schnittchen, and now Dragonfly have put together this brilliant kit, including fabric, interfacing and zip. Although I might be tempted to go off-message and use this pretty triangle print fabric instead..


Custom Flip Flops at Black Sheep Wools
There’s always loads of good ideas and fun things on the Black Sheep Wools website and blog. I love this fab step-by-step flip-flop customisation project. You just need some 4-ply cotton yarn (which comes in a great range of colours), beads (ditto), flip-flops (not in stock at Black Sheep Wools 😉 ) and a 3mm hook, and away you go!


New fabrics at Duck Eggs Threads
It’s so wonderful having Duck Egg Threads as a new sponsor and having the joy of browsing all the beautiful Liberty prints and putting together my own dream team colour combos. I love this little combination of Solar (B), Small Susanna (G) and the Pure Elements solid in Denim Blue.


Summer Garden Stitching Kit at Cloud Craft
There’s a pretty hand-stitching project, just right for taking on holiday, available at Cloud Craft. Jenny Blair’s design is just fab, and all the felt and threads are available in one handy bundle!


Monochromes at My Fabric House
Finally – I absolutely love these brand new monochrome fabrics at My Fabric House. Wow! Clockwise from top left: Japanese Waves, Geometric triangle, Japanese Fans.

One thought on “New fabrics, kits and projects from my sponsors

  1. Hi Ali,

    I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading your blog, since I signed up to it. I really like the mini hoops idea as I have just discovered the art of cross stitching after turning a Beyonce lyric into a cross stich for my friends birthday. I’m also just about to embrak on another for a friends leaving present.

    I’m new to crafting and as well as cross stitching, I am teaching myself to knit too. I’ve always been a bit scared to try crafting, which is why it has taken me until nearly 31 to give it a go, but since doing it I have been amazed with the positive effect it has on my mental well-being, particularly on days when I am feeling stressed or anxious.

    The link between wellbeing and craft is something that I am really interested in, not only because of my own experiences, but because I work for the mental health charity Mind. In fact I have recently been working on developing a “Crafternoon” fund-raising event; getting together with friends, family or colleagues to hold an afternoon of crafting in order to raise money for Mind.

    As a known blogger and expert in the crafting world, I wondered if you could spare 5 minutes to let me know what you think of Mind Crafternoon – and if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to improve it?

    I have attached our Crafternoon pack, as well as a couple of our craft templates. You can find our more on our website and our online craft cupboard at

    I really hope to hear from you soon. Big thanks in advance.

    Best Wishes
