Fabric, yarn and stitchy goodies

Support the work of very berry

I am really excited to do a quick intro to my newest sponsors – Prinfab. Prinfab offers you the opportunity to get your own designs onto fabric (there are 10 options of fabric, including cotton, cotton percale, poplin, linen and bamboo available) or buy fabric created by other artists/indie designers. It’s also a place where you can sell your own fabric designs for commission payments. Think a UK-based version of Spoonflower. The prices for custom printed fabric start at £12.99 per metre, which is very competitive. If all this is intriguing to you – I recommend you check out the Prinfab Facebook page to see some examples of the fabrics which are being created.

I was going to tell you about the fab Sirdar Harrap Tweed Chunky yarn new in at Black Sheep Wools (it’s gorgeous, great value, and comes in a lovely range of colours, what’s not to love?) but then I got distracted by this beautiful crochet blanket pattern using Harrap Tweed DK:

Isn’t it great?! Made me think that I really need an autumn/winter crochet project to take with me on holiday in September (can you tell I’m not leaving England?!).

There’s a summer sale on at Dragonfly Fabrics with some lovely fabrics at up to 50% off. I love a bargain of course, but what really caught my eye were some fabulous new cotton jersey fabrics from Art Gallery, including this fantabulous ice-cream themed print:

 

Great for leggings or jersey PJs, don’t you think?

Over at Duck Egg Threads, a delivery of new fabrics means that they have one of the biggest ranges of Pure Elements by Art Gallery in the UK (if not *the* biggest).

These solid colour fabrics are new to me, but Sarah (who owns Duck Egg Threads) was kind enough to send me some pieces, and I am hugely impressed. Such clean bright colours and a fabulous tight weave, these are really quality solid fabrics.

Cross-stitch nirvana has been reached at Cloud Craft, which is the first UK shop to stock the gorgeous range of Satsuma Street patterns by Jody Rice. I have found it almost impossible to choose a pic to feature, they area all so blooming lovely… but I *think* this one is my favourite (maybe):Satsuma Street printed pattern - Sweet Spring

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a set of Christmas patterns from the Satsuma Street range then do pop over to the Cloud Craft Instagram feed, where you can win the patterns, and linen and threads you need too!

Flowers - spring floral orange & red cotton fabric bundle

Last, but by absolutely no means least, I am in love with this gorgeous bundle from My Fabric House, amongst their collection of ‘Back by Popular Demand‘ restock goodies. That flower fabric on the top is one of my Favourites of All Time… I made a really cute wallet out of it a few years back (2012 – oh my word!), and eked out the left-over scraps into very many later projects. I’m also a very big fan of this super sophisticated grey linen fabric with its delicate tree design – just lovely.

  1. Great post, I’m so excited by your new fabric printing sponsor! I regularly check-out Spoonflower and now we have our own UK version. Brilliant! The Satsuma patterns from Cloud Craft are also on my radar.
