Ok so here is the first thing I bought - Patch! by Cath Kidston (and my new crochet book I haven't blogged about yet). I really love Cath Kidston designs. This book is so inspiring and well worth the £10.50 I paid for it.
It came with a neat little set to make the bag/cushion on the front and was a great beginner project. I haven't quite constructed the cushion yet because I don't have access to a sewing machine.
These are some really handy precut squares I got from eBay. I would definitely recommend here and here.
I bought some larger cuts of fabric too. This shop is bargainous - just £1 for a fat quarter and £1.50 for a 1/2 metre!!!
I intend to make some lovely shabby chic patchwork cushions and an apron. I was also inspired by this amazing cushion so I started making my own hexagons to sew together. They are quick and easy to make. I bought the templates here and they even came with some handy instructions and one with fabric already tacked onto it.
And my favourite - a glorious roll of Amy Butler fabric I got as a free gift with my subscription of Mollie Makes (for UK only, find out more here). I even waited 2 WHOLE DAYS so I could photograph the moment when I unrolled it to share with you.
Are you ready for the best bit? It's going to be a colour explosion - get your sunglasses!
Isn't it just magical? I am in love. I really really am. I can't wait to get show you the finished objects.
So I hope you enjoyed this colourful, fabricky post just as much as I did writing it. I would love to read your comments and know that I'm not the only one who gets excited over crafty bits.
Hope your having a great summer despite the dreary weather,
Love Em xxx
