Sew Gorgeous: Our Favourite Fabrics for Spring
After the winter that just wouldn’t go away, we are SO ready for spring to come out and play at Create and Craft HQ! Which is why we thought it was about time we collated our favourite fabrics for the season ahead. Think pretty pastels, wonderful wildlife prints, and fabulous floral designs, as we prepare to wake up your sewing room and breath new life into your sewing projects! So without further ado, let’s dive into our 2018 spring selection…
Celebrating the songbird, these gorgeous fat quarters are perfect for adding instant spring charm to your sewing. Featuring a beautiful bird print, as well as entwined branches, soft florals, and stylish patterns, each of these pretty fabrics could be used in conjunction with a block colour trim to create stunning cushions, accessories and more.
Combining pretty peach tones with ever-stylish slate grey, these beautiful fat quarters just ooze sophistication! Prints feature birds in flight and muted florals that will add elegance to all your sewing projects! 100% cotton, they are as easy to work with as they are to look at, making this a fab find for beginners and experienced stitch-crafters alike.
If you love an English garden in full bloom, then these gorgeous fat quarters will be right up your street! Made of premium, easy-stitch cotton, you’ll find turning these attention-grabbing prints into stylish sewing projects easy!
This stunning fabric assortment showcases a selection of beautiful designs by artist Kathryn Coyle, creator of the Little Red Boots illustrations! Kathryn’s beautiful watercolour illustrations are inspired by the New Forest, and will add an irresistible charm to anything you create with them!
After something a little more striking this spring? The lovely Flora and Fauna collection couples pretty nature-inspired prints with bold colourschemes that are bursting with personality. Combine these designs, or team them up with more muted fabrics from your own collection to create a fashionable contrast across bags, fashion projects, accessories and more.
We just loved the gorgeous colourscheme across this pretty Play Days collection – muted pink with a hint of chocolate! Ideal for use in nursery decor as well as a whole host of other sewing projects, these fabrics feature a combination of cute characters and sweet and simple nature-inspired prints.
