This lovely fabric is a Japanese fabric called ‘Trefle’ by Kokka. It is a thick and close woven fabric that would be great for furnishings and accessories. I bought this fabric because in one my my appliqué phases I thought it would be lovely for appliqués, but now I think I would like to make […]
This lovely fabric is from Anna Maria Horner’s Good Folks range. It is called Festival in Tangerine. What I like about this fabric, and a lot of Anna Maria Horner’s designs, is that the pattern runs along the edges of the fabric, with a different pattern running down the centre (excuse my photos!).

I thought I may as well continue my bird theme fabric. This is Michael Miller’s round robin in aqua. It is very cute, isn’t it. There are lots of robins around our house, and the children love to spot them and point them out to everybody. I would like to sew this into a pinafore […]
