DIY heart cushions, plus a GIVEAWAY!

Aloha and good morning, readers! Today we digress ever so slightly from the world of dressmaking and bring you a quick and easy DIY project to dress up your home - plus a Giveaway! One lucky lady or gent will win three whole metres of our delicious and delightful Eloise fabric (including free shipping to wherever on the Earth you happen to be), all you have to do is leave us a comment below telling us what you would do with the fabric if you won. The comment that inspires us the most will be crowned the winner. 

*Entries are now closed - Congratulations to our winner Diana, who said, "The only obvious use for this sweetly terrifying fabric is a sweetly terrifying get up — some kind of Stevie Nicks meets Maleficent meets Alice post-Wonderland. Some combination of revealing and girlish, maybe with some surgary pink leather thrown in for good measure…! A 3/4 sleeved Georgia crop top, perhaps? And either a sweetly pleated skirt, or shorty-shorts like Papercut’s Rite of Spring? Hmmm…." Can we hold you to that and ask to see pics when you're done?? Sounds truly magnificent...Three metres of Eloise are on their way to you! We also have a runner up - we couldn't resist - Alice, we're sending you a metre for your cat teepee!*

So, what would we do with Eloise? Well, as I'm sure you can imagine, that is one long list... But we've been wanting to make some cute little heart shaped cushions for the longest time, and Eloise's fierce flower monsters presented us with the perfect opportunity.

You will need:

  • About a metre of a light-medium weight cotton - the cotton poplin Eloise is ideal for soft furnishings as well as general dressmaking.
  • Pillow stuffing - we used leftover scraps of fabric to fill ours, specifically scraps of soft knit fabrics. Avoid scraps of medium-heavy weight wovens as this will just make your cushion lumpy and crunchy. You can also buy pillow stuffing, or just open up an old cushion you have lying around. Just make sure that whatever you use to stuff your cushion will need to be fully washable, as we are not making a removable cushion cover.
  • Fabric marking pen or tailors chalk
  • The usual sewing supplies - sewing machine, shears, pins, hand needle and matching thread.

Step 1

Mark out your heart shape directly onto the fabric. If you're planning to make a bunch of these - and they do make excellent gifts! - it would be wise to make a paper pattern to reuse again and again.

This is not an exact science by any means, so simply draw out a heart shape that looks good to you, and the size that you want. Bear in mind that you'll need to allow for seam allowance, and try not to make the V-dip of the heart too acute as this will make it harder to turn out to the right side once it's been stitched.

Cut out two identical hearts.

Step 2

With right sides together, pin your hearts around the edges ready to be stitched.

Step 3

Stitch your two hearts into place, leaving an unstitched gap about 2" wide. This is where we'll be inserting the stuffing.

Trim away any excess seam allowance, and snip a notch into the seam allowance at the V of the heart.

Turn your cushion cover out to the right side and press. Also press in the seam allowance at the opening.

Step 4

Time to stuff! How much you stuff is up to you, but generally speaking, avoid the temptation to over-stuff. You want your cushion to be soft and comfy, not bursting at the seams.

When you're done stuffing, pin the opening closed.

Step 5

Thread up a hand sewing needle and close the opening by hand with a blind slip stitch.

 

Now over to you - what would you make with Eloise??

    I would love to sew two blouses for my twin girls in this wonderful fabric!

  • Jun 04, 2014

    I would love to make my husband a shirt out of this fabric. I’m pretty sure he’d wear it too!

    Hi,
    Sorry this is a repeat of a previous entry but I can’t see my previous post listed above and am worried that my entry didn’t arrive ( although perhaps you have stopped posting entries online after May 29th??). Anyway please ignore if you already have an entry from me.

    We didn’t have sleepovers for under tens when I was a girl and I’ve been reluctant to let my daughter go on one ; however the time has come for her primary school’s overnight stay in Whitby as well as a sleepover at Brownies. I would use the Eloise fabric to make her some pyjamas to wear to keep her safe….she’s not into pink and would love the idea of flowers that are monsters close up ( I think I’m raising a Goth!) .

    — Rosie

  • Jun 04, 2014

    I think I would make a loose kimono esque jacket. I’ve been dying to make a lightweight layer for the summer, this would be perfect!

    — Shelley C

  • Jun 04, 2014

    I would LOVE to win some of that fabric! I think I would make the Anna dress…I haven’t got the pattern (yet!) but I think the fabric and pattern would be great together, and I love the shape of the Anna!

    — Kieran

  • Jun 03, 2014

    My daughter is getting married in September, Eloise would make a special Flora dress for the occasion

    — Carol Henderson

  • Jun 02, 2014

    I would make some slim fitting trousers for smart-casual days at work. Hopefully they would look as good in real life as they do in my imagination :)

    — Robyn

  • Jun 01, 2014

    Ooh I’d probably make a shirt dress with a mash-up of the Archer shirt and your Flora skirt. That fabric would take it to a whole new level of awesomeness!

    — Cammie

  • Jun 01, 2014

    I’m thinking perhaps a lovely cropped blazer and a wee skirt to match! I heard ‘co-ords’ are in this season ;)

    — Rona

  • Jun 01, 2014

    If I win, I would make matching summerdresses for my daughter and stephdaughter. My stephdaughter doesn’t always feels like she’s home with us. I hope that I can change this feeling a bit by making matching dresses for the girls to show that they really are sisters and that they both are very beloved!

    — Liezel

  • Jun 01, 2014

    I’d make the Lilou dress from Love at First Stitch and with any left I’d sneak in some shortie PJ as I always use my fave and best fabrics for nightwear.

    — Eliza-sew-little

  • May 31, 2014

    Eloise is the shade of pink that I completely adore, and I would take the opportunity to make a dress from her. Something with pleats in the skirt to add fullness without bulk at the waist, a high neckline and no sleeves.

    — Rebekah

  • May 31, 2014

    I would make a kimono jacket! This fabric is as made for it

    — maia

  • May 31, 2014

    We didn’t have school sleepovers when I was a girl and , being a over-protective-ish parent I’ve managed to put them off for my daughter…. until now…..it’s the school overnight trip to Whitby at the end of June ( just before her tenth birthday) and then the brownie sleepover in the City Museum . I’ve just got time to make her truly unique, one of a kind Eloise pyjamas….to keep her safe!

    — Rosie Richmond

  • May 31, 2014

    Thank you for the giveaway! I would make a blouse or a dress with that beautiful fabric. An Anna dress would be really nice!

    — Elena Knits

  • May 31, 2014

    I haven’t sewn much before but I love your flora dress pattern, so I would use the Eloise fabric to sew up my first handmade dress.

    — Emma

  • May 30, 2014

    Oh Eloise!… Surely you’ve noticed me drooling at you several times, and I’ve had the kinkiest dreams with you ;) Among all the things I dream of making with (to?) you – from a maxi-thigh-high-split-naughty anna, to a laid back victoria with matching shorts, and a flowy hi-lo flora – I think I would turn you into some lazy comfy pj pants I could wear shamelessly outside too! And your remains would be lovingly turned into a sleepsack and matching romper to one lucky baby girl to-be :)

    — Laura

  • May 30, 2014

    The only obvious use for this sweetly terrifying fabric is a sweetly terrifying get up — some kind of Stevie Nicks meets Maleficent meets Alice post-Wonderland. Some combination of revealing and girlish, maybe with some surgary pink leather thrown in for good measure…! A 3/4 sleeved Georgia crop top, perhaps? And either a sweetly pleated skirt, or shorty-shorts like Papercut’s Rite of Spring? Hmmm….

    — Diana

  • May 30, 2014

    I would make a dress for my mother. And with the leftover bits, I’d make something for my new little niece. Then I would convince them that as a thank you gesture, they should buy the Anna dress pattern for me

    — Annie

  • May 30, 2014

    I am turning 40 this fall, and to celebrate(??) we are going to Hawaii…I would make a Flora skirt and pair it with a stripey Nettie bodysuit for a perfect I-can’t-believe-I’m-turning-40 outfit. My thoughts are; it would be impossible to be depressed in that outfit, in Hawaii :)

    — Kelly

  • May 30, 2014

    I’d love to make a Flora dress from this fabric!

    — Teri

  • May 30, 2014

    If I won this fabric I would use it to make a couple cute summer dresses for a needy little girl for a new charity I have recently joined. I’m so excited!!

    It just so happens that my middle name is Eloise and it also happens that my first name is Georgia. I’ve been lusting after the gorgeous Georgia dress pattern and I think a few metres of Eloise fabric would be the perfect excuse to stitch myself a Georgia Eloise dress!

    — Georgia

  • May 29, 2014

    I would totally make a dress for a wedding I’m attending later this summer! I’d love to get a few double-takes because of this gorgeous fabric ;)

    — Claire

  • May 29, 2014

    Honesty… I would give the fabric to my sewing genius friend Melinda who has inspired me more than most to take a needle and thread and begin creating, she has helped to ignite a long buried passion. She is a woman with impeccable sewing standards, flare and vision and I’m trying to get her to enter the Sewing Bee programme on telly. Remember the name Melinda Warren. You heard it here first!

    — caron gasper

  • May 29, 2014

    I would make a shirt dress!

    — Julia

  • May 29, 2014

    I think I would make a summer dress with an Elisalex bodice and a circle skirt.
    With the leftovers, I would make a pretty clutch to match.

    — Genevieve

  • May 29, 2014

    I’d have to make an elizalex dress with a slimmed down tulip skirt.

    — Katie

  • May 29, 2014

    Hmm, obviously it would have to be a dress (maybe Anna or Flora) for me, but it reminds me so much of my dog that I’d make him a matching coat with the leftovers.

    — Sally

  • May 29, 2014

    I would make an Anna dress with it.

    — Grace

  • May 29, 2014

    I’m traveling to the Mediterranean for a conference this summer and have been dreaming about making some travel items. I would use the Eloise fabric to make a quilted laptop case, a cover for my e-reader, a make up bag and a passport holder. Whatever is left would be combined with coordinating fabric for a flowy dress. There aren’t many women in my field of study, and the Eloise fabric evokes in me the idea that it’s possible to be simultaneously feminine and fierce!

    — Caitlin

  • May 29, 2014

    Flora dress! I love that design :). Thank you ladies for being so inspirational!

    — Meg White

  • May 29, 2014

    I would make a long-sleeved blouse with this fabric. It reminds me of old ’70s blouses my mum used to wear with big sleeves!

    — Christina

  • May 29, 2014

    I would make myself a dress to wear to my friend’s wedding in July out of that fabric! I’m definitely going to make myself something to wear but am still debating the pattern. Perhaps a sleeveless Elisalex dress…

    — Katie Emma

  • May 28, 2014

    I would definately make an Anna dress, I bought the pattern a few months ago but have yet to find a fabric that I want to splash out for 3 metres of! This would be perfect as I’m heading to glastonbury at the end of this month and I think an Eloise Anna would give me some festival glamour, with the flattering cut of the dress and the quirky pattern on the fabric! Perfect

    — Amy Hill

  • May 28, 2014

    We’ve just bought our new home and for the first time I’ll have my own sewing room. I’d love to use the fabric to make a window blind for a truly me made room! There’s a first time for everything :)

    — Jenny Mac

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make the Flora dress (not just saying that, I’m genuinely excited because I’ve just ordered it!!) Then with any left overs I’d make a cute pair of tap pants and maybe a tissue holder. Any scraps would be saved for patchwork projects – waste not, want not :-)

    — Eliza Brown

  • May 28, 2014

    An close friend of mine is getting married this summer. With 3 meters of this fabric I could make awesome mathing outfits for me and my man! With a tie for him and either a slinky dress or a wide midi skirt paired with a 60s style head-scarf for me.
    And, not to overdo the matching but if I make like a table cloth or something of whats left after that I would personalize it for the happy couple and use the cloth to wrap the gift. Then the wrapping actually gets two functions plus me and my man can match out gift haha!

    — Sandra

  • May 28, 2014

    OMG! 3 metres! That’s a massive amount of awesomely cute flower monsters!
    I would defintely make a pair of slippers (or two or three… and give them to all the ladies in my family). And if there are scraps left, I’d pair them with white lace & make some hot little knickers!

  • May 28, 2014

    This fabric is PERFECT for a summer dress! :)

    — Sally

  • May 28, 2014

    Eloise would make a lovely blind or curtains for my work in progress craft room (part of the building work currently driving me nuts). The walls are to be painted Apricot White, would most likely make a coordinating frock. Can’t wait to have my own space, soooooooo exciting (cue maniacal laughter).

    — Shelley

  • May 28, 2014

    We are in the midst of building work. Part of the extension will contain my craftary. It is to be painted Apricot white. Your fabric would make a great blind or curtains, although more likely I’d make a dress to coordinate with my walls. Can’t wait soooooooooooo excited to have a space which is all mine (cue maniacal laughter).

    — Shelley

  • May 28, 2014

    I’d make my son a Hawaiian style shirt and his baby cousin a flora-esque dress. That’s 2m used up! The last metre would be used to make something for me! Probably a clutch of some sort, I have some weddings to go to this summer and love offsetting the pretty of the dresses I have planned with some monster fun!

    — Vicki Kate

  • May 28, 2014

    I would use it to make a Flora for a work do. Don’t usually go to my work dos (last time was a few years ago) and have to go to this one and have decided i need to look smokin’!

    — Caro

  • May 28, 2014

    I’d make a summer dress, maybe an Anna dress. With any leftovers I’d make something sweet for my baby girl ( who, coincidentally, is called Anna!)

    — Mary

  • May 28, 2014

    Another Anna dress but a long version this time. I’ve just finished my first Anna and am totally in love with this pattern.

    — Camilla

  • May 28, 2014

    I’ve just finished grading my Flora pattern to fit my rather large person. It’s my first attempt at regrading a pattern but I loved Flora so much I knew I had to try! First toile looks great now if only I had some lovely Eloise fabric to make it out of…

    — Kirsty

  • May 28, 2014

    I love how versatile this fabric it. While it would look great as a dress, I would choose to make a gift for my mum. She’s been going through a tough time recently and a new duvet cover and pillow cases using this fabric would definitely cheer her up.

    — Claire (iwanttobeaturtle)

  • May 28, 2014

    If I won the fabric I would want to see it and feel it before I decide what to do with it. Perhaps wait for the new By Hand pattern?

    — Lorna Newbery

  • May 28, 2014

    I’m planning on making a quilt (my first one) for my friends 30th birthday this year in September. Eloise is right up her street (she loves all things quirky) and it would look totally awesome in quilt form. The reason I’m making her a quilt is to hide this blanket
    https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/112028752/norse-god-blanket?ref=sr_gallery_19&ga_search_query=thor+blanket&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=GB&ga_search_type=all
    which will be the quilt back. I want her to have something beautiful to have on display with secret Norse God goodness on the flip side! I think I want one for me too ;)

    — Sian

  • May 28, 2014

    I could see this fabric as wide swishy trousers like Japanese origami pants- an alternative to a maxi skirt, which would be my plan B!

    — Kerry

  • May 28, 2014

    With a piece of this beautiful fabric I think I llmake my niece the fairy dress she s crying for since month. She should be so lovely in it with a flowers crown…

    — Marion

  • May 28, 2014

    Dresses dresses dresses! That’s what I’d make. I love the kimono sleeves on the Anna dress (and I’ve recently bought pattern and already have one in the pipeline ) so I think that’s the way I’d go- maxi version with slit

    — Lou Sewcial Warrior

  • May 28, 2014

    I reckon Eloise is crying out to be a light kimono jacket! I can just imagine it with a good pair of jeans and a simple white cami top. A glass of rose wine in a beer garden on a summer’s day would also match perfectly!

    — Jen

  • May 28, 2014

    I think I would make a Flora for my daughter. She’d love the combination of l pattern and material and would look beautiful in the dress.

    — Deborah

  • May 28, 2014

    Eloise would make such a fun pussy-bow blouse. It would look sweetly floral and delicate, but, up close…fangs! I’d feel I could handle anything in that.

    — Celia

  • May 28, 2014

    Definitely a dress! I recently moved somewhere with seasons and discovered layering, so I live in them year-round, and this print is too perfect — elegance and attitude :) Sleeveless fitted bodice, swishy skirt, pure joy!

    — Crystal

  • May 28, 2014

    Pretty pillows! I don’t look too good in pink so I’d probably use the fabric to make a dress for one of my sisters who does look good in pink.

    — Emmely

  • May 28, 2014

    Every time I see this fabric I love it more :) I would make a maxi skirt or dress for summer; I think it would be perfect for keeping cool & feeling pretty through the hottest months :)

    — Amanda

  • May 28, 2014

    An Anna dress does come to mind, but since I just perfected the bodice fit on the Belladone, I’d probably make a deer and doe mashup of the belladone bodice with a Chardon skirt. And then twirl!

    — Joanne

  • May 28, 2014

    I desperately need new curtains for my bedroom!

    — Erin

  • May 28, 2014

    With 3 meters of Eloise, I would definitely make a dress for my honeymoon in September!!

    — Katie

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make the Flora as a skirt, pair it with a Nettie in white and low back. And make a matching kerchief for Muttly. What a lovely pair we’d make this summer!

    — Annessa

  • May 28, 2014

    I’d make a Deer and Doe Réglisse dress…. It’s a dress I’ve had on my to do list for ages and I’d LOVE to twirl Eloïse’s flowery monsters around in her swishy skirt! Plus, it’s the exact amount of fabric I’d need ;)

    — Anja

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a pair of sundresses for my two granddaughters.

    — jonquil

  • May 28, 2014

    I would love to make a Flora dress from it. I saw one made from this fabric on a blog and fell in love and knowing that fabric was sold out, I didn’t think it would ever be possible. Would love the chance!

    — Sherri Egan

  • May 28, 2014

    Make a lovely Anna and definitely make my kitty a cape!

    — Melissa Gonsalves

  • May 28, 2014

    I love the fabric pattern and the shade of pink it is! I think I’d be boring and make an extra special fit and flare dress. Perhaps for a special occasion. Oh, maybe this years birthday dress.

    — Elizabeth

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a 70s style flared jumpsuit :)

    — Aneira

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a circle skirt to wear with a low-back short-sleeved Nettie – to turn heads whilst sunning myself in France this summer…

    — Amelia E

  • May 28, 2014

    If i won the fabric I would make a blazer and shorts combo for summer. It’s flowery and summery and could be worn both together or separates!

    — Jennifer

  • May 28, 2014

    That’s an awesome print. It’s the kind of fabric that I would use for my first flora. Then I’d go carnivorous plant shopping and get weird looks from the plant keepers.

    “No, no, I want this one” and then point to the flowers on my dress.

    — Andie L.

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a lace bomber jacket and line with the fabric. sexy aimright?

    — houseofpinheiro

  • May 28, 2014

    Ooh the list could be endless, but I think I would make a table cloth and some cushions for my new sitting outside space in my little garden as I recently pulled down a dilapidated shed and now have a table and chairs instead.

    — Ros

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make my daughter, who turns 22 next week, a flora or anna dress – it would be the first dress iv ever made her & she loves the eloise fabric :)

    — Sharon Michelle @sewstitches

  • May 28, 2014

    I would have to make the Anna dress. Think it would look fab in the Eloise fabric :)

    — Carol Andrew

  • May 28, 2014

    I can’t really visualise how much I can do with 3m but I have a bunch of ideas…!

    If I get in (fingers seriously crossed) I’m hoping to start my dream biology MSc in the Autumn so I’d use the fabric to inspire my studies with lots of mini projects e.g a notebook and folder cover with space for pens, a separate pencil case (for all the coloured felt tips I won’t use half as much as I imagine on my notes!), a cushioned laptop case, then for my work space at home a cushion for my chair…. And to make my study time even sweeter, a cute nightie or PJs, perhaps also a dressing gown, to be worn with hand knitted long socks and a lovely drapey snugly Pickles cardigan (cannot decide on pattern but I’m sure I’ll get there!)

    However if the sun comes out when I get it it will be very hard not to make a Flora. And a Flora would definitely be my cheering-myself-up project if I don’t get on the course!

    So if I don’t win the giveaway, please send me good luck wishes anyway!

    Thanks :)

    — Jenny

  • May 28, 2014

    Ive been looking for the perfect fabric to make an outfit for my godson-to be’s christening and think the Elosie fabric would be perfect- either to make an Anna or Flora with (just waiting for my Flora pattern to arrive before I decide whether to go for that or another trusty Anna!) So would love to win this to ensure im looking good in the all imprtant christening photos!!

    — Amanda stinton

  • May 28, 2014

    If I was lucky enough to win this fabric, I would definitely make myself a beautiful summer dress, something 50’s inspired, as I love sewing for myself.

    — Erin Austin

  • May 28, 2014

    I think I would go halfsies on it. Well more one third on it. I would make a cute sleeveless top for myself. And there are two skirts for Mr.Man’s nieces in my sewing plan. Wouldn’t this fabric look absolutely adorable as matching skirts for two little girls?

    — Fooniks

  • May 28, 2014

    I know it would have to be a dress – maybe a twirly wrap dress?

    — Anna

  • May 28, 2014

    The fabric looks lovely. If I was lucky enough to win I think I’d make a secretary blouse with a bow at the collar. I bought a few vintage patterns at a local flea market recently including Vogue 5107 and I think this fabric and this pattern would look great together.

    — Deborah

  • May 28, 2014

    Has to be a Flora dress!

    — Frances

  • May 28, 2014

    I think it’d be rude not to use this fabric to make an Anna dress!

    — Rachel

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a funky new quilted sock for my double bass bow. The one I use to store my bow in at the moment is getting a bit tatty so it’s time for a replacement. Eloise would be the perfect sassy candidate for the job! Sweet on first impression, but fierce at heart.

    — Bella

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a wedding dress for my best friend! I know it’s not the traditional white or Ivory but the Eloise is way more beautiful!

    — Charlene

  • May 28, 2014

    a skirt for me and a dress and tank top for my two girls

    — sewsleepy

  • May 28, 2014

    Hmmm, I’m torn, perhaps I would make my daughter and I matchy matchy skirts just like my mother used to do when I was little….. Or maybe, now I’ve seen the heart cushions, I would make a roman blind for my sitting room……. Or maybe I would hog the lot and make a fabulous dress all for myself!

    — Esther skinner

  • May 28, 2014

    I love this fabric. I’d love to have a summer dress made from it, but if I won I would do some unselfish sewing (for once) and make a dressing gown for my momma; she’s having a fair few hospital treatments at the moment and a unique robe might cheer up her ward time a bit!

    — Rachel

  • May 28, 2014

    If I won, I think I’d make a 1930s summer dress. I’ve had the pattern for yonks now, but this deceptively monstrous fabric is just what I need to give it some edge.

    — Lauren

  • May 28, 2014

    That fabric is sooo beautiful! I’d use it to transform the Anna dress into my dream 1930s style dress, complete with matching chiffon flutter sleeves and godet insets.

    — Hari

  • May 28, 2014

    Lovely cushions ❤️ if I were so lucky to win your amazing fabric I’d make myself …. Is it your new soon to be released pattern suitable for cotton poplin? ;) otherwise a sweet cropped top, maybe bustier style!

    — Carly

  • May 28, 2014

    i think it would be either another flora tank version or an anna.

    — sewlittletime

  • May 28, 2014

    Gorgeous print! This would be perfect for the sweetheart neck pencil skirt dress I’ve been practicing on my mannequin.

    — Jade

  • May 28, 2014

    I would make a Sewaholic Gabriola, not the most imaginative idea but it would be so pretty!

    — Jo

  • May 28, 2014

    I love the colorway of this fabric! I think I’d use it to make an Anna dress with a gathered skirt — perfect for Spring/Summer!

    Ah! I think I would try to squeeze a Flora dress out of it!

    If I won this fantastic fabric, I’d do a happy dance! Then I’d give it a big hug and carefully store it away until I found a pattern worthy of it. Once I’d muslined the pattern multiple times to get the fit just right, then, and only then, would I cut into my precious fabric to make the perfect dress. Voila!

    Hmmmm, I wonder if 3 metres would get me a jumpsuit :)

    I would make a Frightening Flora! For when I’m feeling beautiful and devastating this summer.

    I would use this to make a lovely bedding set for my baby girls cot! She doesn’t have any ‘proper’ bedding yet, so this would be perfect and then when she’s older I can turn it into something for her to wear! Stylish baby huh!

    Ooooohhhhh if I was lucky enough to win, I would make myself a half circle skirt as I’ve just discovered your fab maths-free calculator app for circle skirts! :-)

    I would embark on my first ever craft attempt and make a cushion for a bench I am renewing!

    If I won this beautiful material, I’d use it to make a short version Anna dress for my chief bridesmaid, so she could stand and be unique xx

    How cute are those cushions?! If I were the lucky winner of this awesome fabric, I’d be totally selfish and make myself a dress. Probably the Lilou Dress from Tilly’s book which I’m loving right now :-)

    I cycle to work, but I have an inability to travel light . At the moment I shove everything in a cheap black backpack but if I had this fabric, I’d make my own one-off bike panniers.

    If I’d have the pleasure of winning this fabric, I would for sure sew myself a backless summerdress with a full skirt for our family trip to Italy! Nothing is better than exploring a new city in a handmade frock! :) x
