I have these pin cushions x is the link to tote bags that I hand paint that creates a screen printed look. Although it isn’t sewing materials, I think the bright cheery look of the tote bags would be perfect for keeping stashes of fabric, buttons, yarn and whatever other important sewing essentials.

The process of creating the design on the bag by initially hand drawing the design onto freezer paper, and cutting out the ‘stencil’ before ironing the paper onto the bag, I then paint inside the design and leave to dry before peeling the paper off to reveal the design underneath. Each design is different, and like screen printing you never know what flaws you might get, but the flaws make it perfect, for a hand created look. Each stencil I create is from my original designs, such as the ‘smiley car’

I have two pin cushions; and three sets of vintage Laura Ashley fabric covered buttons, for consideration.

I have a few sewing needle cases in my shop. Heres one of them.

Hi to all fellow sewing lovers out there!
I would love to put my Folksy shop forward, called BluebellHillCrafts.
I stock a large variety of Liberty fabric bias bindings and will be listing Liberty fabric spaghetti cords as well in the next few days.
I have an additional 20+ different bias bindings to list before the new Liberty Spring / Summer 2016 fabrics will be out in a couple of weeks. Then I’ll be really going to town, lol… Watch this space!
Wishing everyone a well deserved break to watch the Great British Sewing Bee tonight! Enjoy!
