We’re loving the botanical trend – all of those gorgeous tropical plants, succulents and cacti on every surface – so we’ve rounded up some of our favourite plant-themed products from around the shop in our new Plant Lady section!
Let’s start with all of the lush fabrics we have in the shop for all your dressmaking, quilting and craft projects!
We love the fun organic cotton Leaves in Green by designer Jessica Nielsen for Cloud9 fabrics, which would look awesome as a tote bag. And the Brambleberry in Evergreen Metallic has lovely sparkly gold accents, perfect for quilting, apparel, and home decor accents like table runners and accent pillows.
This stunning Nani Iro double gauze is perfect for Summer garments! Feeling a little freaked out about sewing with double gauze? We’ve rounded up our top three favourite resources for sewing with it on The Daily Stitch here.
We also love the beautiful texture of the Manchester yarn-dyed cotton fabrics by Robert Kaufman. We only have a small amount of it left in Fern, so be quick! You can shop all our colours of Manchester yard-dyed cottons here.
We’re also still swooning over the beautiful Rose Garden in Moss Metallic, part of the Wonderland collection by Rifle Paper Co. This 100% quilting weight cotton is perfect for children’s clothing and cushions.
You can shop all our favourite botanical fabrics here.
Stitch your own garden with the Garden Variety embroidery pattern by Sublime Stitching. With lazy daisies, stem stitches and plenty of French knots for seeds, play around and see what pops up! We stock a huge range of embroidery floss in a rainbow of colours for your embroidery projects. We also have these awesome Cactus mini cross stitch kits from The Make Arcade which come with everything you need to get stitching. Shop all our embroidery range here.
We love this fun Cactus charm, perfect for hanging on your zipper pull, weaving into your friendship bracelet or hanging on a necklace or charm bracelet! We have lots of other summery charm designs in stock, including this fun Rainbow Ice Cream one. Shop all our enamel charms here, and shop our full range of zippers here.
Continuing our botanical theme, we’ve also rounded up some of our favourite plant-themed greeting cards! Tell a friend ‘Hola’ with this fun pom-pom cactus 3D card by Meri Meri. Celebrate their Birthday with this Floral Birthday card by Natalie Lea Owen. Or tell that person you love how you feel with this botanical ‘Wild About You‘ card by BerinMade!
We love washi tape! It’s strong but easy to remove from most surfaces and comes in an endless variety of colours and patterns. Use it to decorate gift wrap, cards, notebooks, even furniture… the possibilities really are endless!
This Italiensk Blomsterhylla design features row upon row of Italian plants in jazzy pots in varying shapes and sizes. Use it to decorate an actual plant pot, brighten up a boring picture frame or personalise presents. Shop all our washi tape here.
This Cacti stamp by Yellow Owl Workshop is so much fun! The premium natural rubber stamp makes it easy to see where you have inked and the thick foam cushion makes for reliable stamped prints. Personalise invitations, gift tags, snail mail, and more! Use your stamp with this handy 10 Colour Mini Ink Pad Set featuring a rainbow of colours including silver and gold. Shop all our stamps and ink pads here.
Learn to turn old rags into upcycled homeware with the beautiful craft of rag rugging! Our beginners’ workshop is designed to give you all the skills you need to be able to start any rag rug project for yourself at home. With plenty of help from our expert instructor throughout the day, you will learn how to use rag rug equipment, how to work with hessian, how to choose and prepare materials, how to design for rag rug, how to do the two different types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy) and how to finish your work.
During the session you will get the opportunity to begin a rug, cushion or smaller project (depending on how ambitious you’re feeling!). All the rag rug materials are provided on the day and you’ll get a latch hook to take home with you! Our next rag rugging class is on 10 September and you can find out more here.
We’ve added new fabrics to our sale section at 40% off, including jersey, lawn and quilting cotton! Start shopping here.
