#SharingOurStash – Beautiful Velvets


It’s the last stash for 2015 and we’ve a treat for you – lots of beautiful velvets! Before I tell you more, do take a moment to check out the other stashes; there’s everything from buttons to fabrics and trimmings!

If you have missed why I am giving away (or selling incredibly cheap!) so much from my studio, I’ll give you a quick recap. There’s a number of reasons. Firstly, I need to make some space in my studio but more importantly, my values are very much about sustainability, upcycling and waste reduction. I don’t want the unused materials ending in the trash, I don’t want to add to landfill, and I truly believe there’s so many creative minds out there can upcycle these materials to make something fabulous. These stashes aren’t scraps, they’re good quality and I am offering them out to people like you!

#SharingOurStash – Velvet Inspiration

As we were putting this stash together we realised how perfect it would be for New Year outfits and celebrations so that’s where we’re focusing our inspiration this week.

Sewing with Velvet Inspiration

Easy Peasy Gathered Skirt / Skater Dress / White Rabbits Hat (am thinking fancy dress parties!) / Velvet Envelope Clutch / No Sew Bow Tie / DIY Velvet Shrug / Child’s Cape

I am obsessing over that clutch. So easy to make so if you’re a beginner this is a great one for you. I also stumbled across this post about how to emboss velvet with a rubber stamp and iron. Great way to add detailing.

    Hello. Can I please have 2m of the Royal Blue and 2m of the teal. I am going to make some capes and have a go at a top hat and bow tie for world book day if there’s enough left over after the capes. Thank you.
