Mini Haul – Leicester Fabric Guild

Mini Haul – Leicester Fabric Guild

Hey tribe, mini haul here.

I have goodies to show off.

It was a slightly dangerous trip as I didn’t have a specific project in mind and was just going to ‘scope the joint’. I couldn’t walk away empty handed could I?! No…

In my swag bag:

1.Five fat quarters – yellow pinstripe, biscuit print(!), cacti print and plain pink. 2. Five reels of cotton thread. 3.Mini pom pom makers. 4. Bag Handles. 5. Fluro pink Robin DK.

Fabric

There is so much on offer (all the heart eyes). Geometrics and quirky prints seem to be my gig, I need to do some serious fat quarter pattern hunting and visit the Guild again.

I adore this biscuit print cotton. (£.99p!)

The cacti print is on a denim type material (sorry, no idea of its legit material name)

All of the fabric is destined to become knitting pouches; a sock pouch, a notions case and possibly part of the patchwork for a sweater bag?

 And look what I found! A local stockist.

Caron Cakes.

Does anyone have any pattern/project suggestions?

 

The Robin DK is so fluro I couldn’t get the humble iPhone camera to focus. I shall be chopping it up to add a pop of colour to some of my #HGDCScrapBallChallenge projects.

HGDCScrapBallChallenge Bag

 

 I HAD to have these clear glitter handles (£1.75). They are going to be part of a #HGDCScrapBallChallenge Bag!

Squares or stripes or both?

 And talking of the #HGDCScrapBallChallenege…

#HGDCScrapBallChallenge Hottie

The first version of my hot water bottle cover is complete!

It took max three hours to churn out and uses up scraps entirely.  I am now working on the second version which will be posted on the blog as free pattern for you all.

I posted the pictorial of how to make the Scrap Balls here so get started ready for the pattern release.
