Calling all husbands,  partners, brothers, sisters, Mums, Dads, Aunties, Uncles and children!   If you need some gift ideas for the loved ones in your life,  look no further – we’ve been busy designing these wonderful ‘Bundles of Joy’.   Each bundle has carefully selected co-ordinating fabric, so you can be sure the designs and patterns really complement one another.  They are wrapped in cellophane and tied with lovely spotty satin ribbon with a gift tag.

Birthday boy and dog

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Where has the last year gone, Alfie turned 1 yesterday, it doesn’t seem possible.  We had a little tea party for him which he thoroughly enjoyed.  One of the highlights for him was playing with his favourite little tractor, as you can see, he is making ‘full-on’ tractor noises!  One of his presents from us was ‘dog’.  Alfies first word wasn’t ‘mama’ or ‘dada’, it was ‘dog’, so it only seemed right that he got a sausage dog for his birthday.  I used Farmdale Crosshatch Mustard for the body, Farmdale Blossom Red for the tail and Duck Egg Linen for his ears.  When Alfie saw him he ‘arrrrrred’ him with a big squeeze – sweet!

Cosy knits

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

jersey pink dotjersey stripeWe’ve added some lovely cosy jersey to the shop.  It would be great for children’s clothing, hats, tops backing of dribble bibs and snuggly taggie blankets.  Its 150cm wide, so 1 FQ will give you 75cm x 50cm.  Please note its important to wash this before use as there will be shrinkage, between 15-20%.

And the winner is……

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010


Jennie, comment 22 – congratulations!  This is what Jennie suggested:-

‘I adore your site and cannot help but buy lots every time I visit.

What would be helpful in my eyes is seeing all the fabrics in a category in one go rather than having to clck the option or browse per page, if that makes sense. Also because I usually trawl through all the categories anyway I would like to have to option to see all fabrics in one huge list, regardless of what category they are in. And then being able to sort by colour would be great.

And i agree that more customer or your projects would be really inspiring.

But keep up the good work as yours is one of my favourite websites!’

Thank you to everyone that entered and for all your comments, we’ve had some great suggestions.   Its an exciting time for Fabric Rehab, watch this space for the new and improved shop…

Gorgeous Gingham

Sunday, September 5th, 2010


The shop now stocks some lovely gingham, we thought they warranted their own category, so you can find them easily.  The width is longer than standard, so you get more to work with, a FQ measures 80cm x 50cm, so if you want 1/2 a metre you’ll receive a piece measuring 160cm x 50cm.
