New in Store - 26th June 2016

I've been a bit under the weather this week but I have done my best to get a few new items up on the website. I have some new bag bling from Emmaline Bags including metal edge trim and new oval bag handles that screw on instead of using prongs making them much more secure. The very popular blood platter fabric from Robert Kaufman has also come back into stock, this one usually sells out pretty fast so be quick so you don't miss out.
Last week mesh fabric came back into stock with a couple of new colours. If you are unfamiliar with this product it is great for adding pockets to bags and organisers that are slightly stretchy and allows you to see what is inside. If you are on the look out for a pattern that utilises the mesh there are several good ones from Patterns by Annie available now.

New in Store - 19th June 2016

I've added a number of bits and pieces to the web store this week. I have Jelly Clips from Lecien Fabrics in stock.  I was so excited by the range of colours that I had to make one up in each size, don't they look sweet? I found this blog post which has some very good tips for attaching the frames.


There are 8 colours and each colour is available in 10cm, 14cm and 18cm and the purse pattern is included with each frame. Mesh fabric is now back in stock with two new colours. Great for making pockets inside bags and organisers. 

I know that picking interfacing can be tricky when it comes to bag making. To that end I have made up stabiliser kits for a number of our more popular bag patterns. I am slowly adding them to the website. I have just added two kits for the Necessary Clutch Wallet. The light kit is recommended for beginners while the medium is a bit stiffer and thicker.

New in Store - 5th June 2016

So many new fabrics have been added to the website this week. There are some very awesome dragons, foxes and cats in from Timeless Treasures, a cute little nautical range from Dear Stella and some tikis and skulls from Alexander Henry Fabrics. I've also been playing with the menu system on the website so there are more options available in the top menu to help you find items more easily.

New in Store - 29th May 2016

I've been promising some new classes for a while now and after a small hiccup where I deleted several hundred products off my website (they are back again now) I am on track again. All of the new classes are listed on the website, there are a few old favourites as well as some brand new ones including regular dressmaking classes.

There are also a few new pieces of bag hardware, patterns and haberdashery.
