Create your own fabric with By Hand London

Well hello there! Not much sewing has been going on round these parts, instead it's been lots of cuddles with a sick wee boy who's thankfully on the mend now. I have been spending a bit of time arranging my sewing space and organising my fabric so hopefully I'll have something to show for it soon. In the meantime I thought I'd share some really exciting news from the By Hand London girls. I'm a bit late with this so I bet you've all already read about it but just in case now here goes..

I love the By Hand London patterns and their enthusiasm and support for people sewing up their patterns, so any new venture by them is going to be worth getting excited about. However this is like a dream come true - they are fund-raising to start a venture whereby we can design and print our own fabric!! So like Spoonflower but the fabric will be printed here in the UK, using ecologically friendly inks, and printed on demand so no wastage. What a fantastic idea! They've launched a Kickstarter to fund this and I so hope they reach their target! Going by the sell out success of their first fabric I'm sure they have no worries!
