Fabric & Suppliers.

I was delving through my fabric stash recently to remind myself of what I have hanging about and came upon this bundle of fat quarters which I purchased several years ago.

I love the colours and they're really fun prints -I've just never been quite sure what to do with them and so they've been languishing in the cupboard. They're prints licensed to Andover Fabrics by the New Mexico Museum of Folk Art.

I have a couple of prototypes which I'm currently playing around with so will possibly use some of it for those... Anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway, I thought I would share a few websites which I love. I may as well use this opportunity to point out that I am not paid to endorse any of these companies -or anything else on this blog for that matter!

I can (and frequently do) spend hours on end looking through the beautiful fabrics. Whether you're an experienced stitcher or a crafting novice, I'm sure you'll find some inspiration for your next/first project on one of the following.

A great selection of designer fabrics and patterns including this new addition 'Sing out loud' in 'Blue mist' by Sweetwater.

Great fabric selection, but also stocks embroidery and paper craft supplies. Definitely need to find a use for this 'Laddies and Poppets' by Michele Brummer Everett for Cloud 9.

I've used this website several times and am always delighted with the purchases and how speedily they arrive. This is 'Bento sushi box' in 'Aqua' by Robert Kaufman.

I bought this 'Buck stag with glasses' by Japanese firm Echino a couple of weeks ago and it's currently waiting to be transformed into a new bag. Also stocks a great range of 'Kam snaps' (UK based so saves on shipping!).

Another fabric store worth noting is Fabricland. If you have one locally then pop in. My local store has a great selection of basics at unbelievable prices plus loads of sewing accessories, but no be honest I wouldn't bother with the website. (Click the link and you'll see why!)

So there you are. Get cracking! If you need any further inspiration I have a few tutorials up my sleeve for the next couple of weeks. In the mean time check here for project ideas.

Happy Crafting!
