The Fabric Fairy Has Been!

I got home from a lovely craft day with my friend Steph today (she made a pirate flag, I was knitting a new hat) to find this exciting package waiting for me!

Exciting package

I knew exactly what was inside and had been hoping it would turn up today.  Brilliant considering I only ordered it on Sunday!

This is the new fabric I ordered from the lovely Saints and Pinners just outside of Exeter.

Exciting new fabric from Saints and Pinners

Originally I was thinking about making children’s clothing out of it for Art on the Hill, but it’s so lovely, now I’m not so sure!

Saints and Pinners is a small business in Devon run by Jo and Fran, a mother and daughter team.  I was introduced to them by my friend Steph (the one with the pirate flag) this time last year, but this was my first order from them.  They have a large range of lovely fabrics on their website, sold in fat quarters, by the metre or in a handy fabric pack for those of you into quilting (or just hoarding lovely fabrics).  They also sell a range of gorgeous patterns and other nic-nacs to get your creative juices flowing, and will ship worldwide 🙂

Only after I got to checkout did I realise that I’d only ordered fabric with animals on it.  This wasn’t intentional!  I really love the owl fabric, and was thinking it might make a nice shirt (for me) but the whole purpose of buying new material was to inspire myself to get up and make things for the trail… maybe some purses?

  1. I love how you didn’t even realize that you ordered all animal prints — they’re all lovely (so special) and I’m looking forward to seeing what you end up sewing with them. I’m partial to bunnies so that’s my fave!

  2. Oh yes, definitely some purses! Also, I cannot for the life of me decide which of these is my favorite, they are all so lovely! Great choices!

  3. I can’t wait to see what wonderful things you create with these fabrics! I like them all, but my favorite is the bunnies. And thanks for sharing your source – its great to get recommendations from someone that you trust!

  4. They all look lovely, did you get an excited fabric sweat on when you opened the parcel?! I love fabric sweats! LOL! xxxx

  5. Lovely pieces of fabric! I like the rabbits brick red background but the owls are super too.
    I’m off to the local market tomorrow they have several stalls there which sell fabric but I’ve never bothered much with them I just usually go on to the yarn stall. However tomorrow I am going to look and see what I can bring home with me. I want to try my hand at a snazzy cushion cover .I’ll have to hand stitch it because I have no machine but at least I know how to put a zip in…I remember that at least from sewing classes at school…that was a long long time ago. Going to be looking looking and looking at all you super fabric bloggers to see what ideas I can get for my cushion cover.
    Amanda 🙂
