We’ve had lots of lovely new fabrics delivered in the last few weeks including new ranges from Makower and some from Timeless Treasures who we are excited to now be working with. One of these ranges is Tutu, perfect for the aspiring young Princess, Fairy or Dancer in your life.
We have 5 coordinating fabrics from the range in pastel pinks, blues and white. They feature fairytale castles, beautiful ballerinas, ballet shoes, tutus and a sprinkling of stars and butterflies. The fabrics are 100% high quality cotton and cost £14/m. They are also available by the Fat Quarter at £3.50 each or a beautifully presented bundle for £17.50.
The range also features an easy to sew pocket panel perfect for storing precious trinkets and jewels. The panel costs £8 and has all the instructions printed on it. You will also need 0.5m of interfacing to reinforce the pockets and 0.75m of fabric to back it with and to form the hanging loops. Or why not create a patchwork back from a Fat Quarter bundle. What little (or big!) girl could resist?
There is a free pattern for a large ballet pump cushion. The pattern includes all the templates for the appliqué as well as instructions on assembling it using the fusible web method. The cushion has a patchwork border and is finished with a simple envelope back. The finished cushion measures 20″ square. How about stitching up some matching curtains for a coordinated room set?
