We have a new category ‘Thrifty Bits‘, its jam packed full of lovely fabric and everything in this category is under £10 per metre, in fact most of the fabrics are under £6 per metre. We’re selling these in 1/2m increments and they range from £2.65 – £2.99 per 1/2m, should you purchase more than 1 unit it will arrive as one whole piece uncut.
Most of the fabrics here are cotton poplin, suitable for dressmaking and the bundles would make great bunting for a summer garden party or childs bedroom.

• Six projects to make, including the apple jackets on the front cover.
• Top stylist tips for throwing your dream summer party – I loved this feature!
