Just a quick one from me today folks. Thought I’d swing by and share a little fabric inspiration. I discovered these vintage florals – which have been hiding in my stash – whilst organising my work room. My inspiration has been some what flattened this week by a couple of 5am starts and a three year old who is… let’s say ‘pushing her boundaries’.
My latest make is this A-line high waisted skirt that I have adapted from a vintage pattern. The fabric was thrifted from a charity shop and it’s previous life was a double duvet cover. There is lots of the fabric left, which I have already earmarked for something else.
Here is Bailey in her handmade doily collar dress. I completed it a while back, but have only just had a chance to take some photos of Bailey wearing it. I really wanted to share some photos of it all finished as I think it’s just lovely (even if I do say so myself). If you missed the earlier blog posts about doily inspiration and the doily collar, then you won’t know that the dress is made from a vintage table cloth – which was thrifted from a charity shop – and a vintage doily, that was my Grandma Peggy’s.
Here are some of my latest vintage fabric finds. It might surprise you to learn that I bought them at a Sheep fair! I wasn’t expecting to happen upon any good finds that day. I was expecting to see some Sheep, but vintage fabric… not so much. Read More

They are really nice and wide, with a small section of elastic to help hold the headband in place. They will be available in two sizes; one mummy sized, and one for the little one in your life.
