Fabric Competition Winners!!

Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all well! I've been totally overwhelmed by all your competition entries. Not only has it been my most popular competition to date, but it's been incredible to involve a creative side of you all!
Your ideas are totally inspiring. And it's been so hard but I have decided on our three winners. I just want to say thank you to all of you who entered.

Right the winner of my Meadow© Printed Fabric is:

Nica Walsh

Nica wanted to make "Curtains with matching cushion applique, waste bin and lamp shade." I can't wait to see which one you make out of your project piece Nica. 

The winner of my Wheels and Stars© Printed Fabric is: 

Maureen Moss

Maureen wanted to make "..something for my 5 year old grandson [..] perhaps a shirt for wearing on the relatives farm or maybe an art overall for his painting and pottery lessons..." Such a cute idea Maureen cannot wait to see a picture of your make!

The winner of my On the Farm© Printed Fabric is: 

Jan Johnson

Jan's idea was to make a "duvet cover/pillow case and bumper covers for my new grandson" I love the fact she added "he won't criticize my workmanship!!". Such a sweet idea and I love this print, it's perfect for any room in the home from nursery to kitchen. Can't wait to see your photos Jan. 

Thanks again for all your entries. Winners will be notified by email. And I'll show you their makes once I have recieved pictures.

Happy Handmade everyone!

love Sophia x


Fabric Competition!

Wednesday, January 6, 2016
Hi Everyone,
Happy New Year!

Right it's been long over due but now I have the time to finally launch our Fabric competition! I'm so excited for you all to start using my fabrics, so I thought to kick start the whole thing I will give 3 lucky people one Project piece of fabric (40x150cm) each to make what ever they like out of it! Then send me a picture of what they've made to give the rest of you inspiration for your own projects.

View our Fabric Range HERE.

Things you need to know:
  • The fabric is Half Panama Light Upholstery Unbleached Cotton. So it's very versatile but a good weight.
  • Designs are treated and prewashed but please bear in mind slight shrinking may occur in a hot wash. 
  • 150cm wide (148cm approx excluding selvedge). 
  • Pattern repeat for On the Farm© 25cm height (approx), 16cm width (approx) tiled. 
  • Pattern repeat for Meadow© 24cm square (approx) tiled.
  • Pattern repeat for Wheels and Stars© 30cm square (approx) tiled. 

How to Enter:

Fill out the form below and tell us what you'd like to make  from our fabric. Be as creative as you like.
We will go through all the entries and pick a winner for each fabric design based on what we like the most.
You don't have to use all of the fabric. And you can combine it with other materials if you like as long as our fabric is clearly the focus point.
Then once we've chosen our winners and sent the fabric to you. All you have to do is get stitching, take some fab photos of what you've made and we'll share them on our social media platforms!
