Fat Quarters £6.00

I would be perfectly happy  this  Christmas to have a stocking full of these beautiful bundles of fat quarters (and maybe a pair of socks). The complimenting colours are great for any small projects you’ve got on the go, quilt making, or even appliqué.

This cute cuddly penguin made by Tracy from Sew Nothing’s Impossible is too cute for words. You can order your own message or name to be embroidered onto a variety of cuddly toys including tigers, Lady birds and teddy bears.   An ideal gift for babies first Christmas.

Sarah’s Favourite

Tartan brushed cotton £7.00 per metre, Jersey fabric £7.00 per meter, Renfrew pattern £13.00

‘Top of my wish list for Christmas is a couple of metres of this cosy tartan brushed cotton to make myself snugly pj bottoms and some of the new single jersey fabric we’ve just got in, to make a matching top using the Renfrew pattern by Sewaholic. I like to be super warm in winter so this would be perfect for chilly January nights!’

Freya’s Favourite

Wonder clips, £6.50 for 10 or £30 for 50

‘Wonder clips are my new favourite sewing accessories. I always struggled trying to get the bias binding to lie flat. and using pins always meant the fabric would shift when it went under the machine. I use wonder-clips all the time at work and would love a set to take home.’

Rebekah’s Favourite (Me)

Gold stretch poly-viscose £7 per metre, Grainline Studio Tiny Pocket Tank £14

‘Ever since I’d seen this beautiful gold fabric I’ve been itching to make a slinky little top from it. I love the Grainline Studio patterns they are nice and simple for a novice like me’.

What’s on your wishlist this Christmas?
