  2. With summer on its way, the fox is on its way out (much to Jenna's despair) and making room for the new trend flamingo

    If you love flamingo's, and crafting, as much as we do, we have just the things for you!

    Sasha loved every moment of cross stitching this funky flamingo. The kit is from the Brodrick design studio and is on offer for only £8.50! But be quick as we only have 2 left!


    Sticking to the abstract theme, how about this amazing fabric! In black, white and pink it is great for being subtly on trend! We think a skirt or some cushions would like great in it!


    If you are looking for a more realistic print this fabric is perfect! It is like bringing the tropics straight to you! A dress would have such a wow factor in it! How about re-lining those deck chairs and feel like you are right there (no one needs to know your back garden isn't actually a in the tropics! We wont tell if you don't!).


    Now you have the fabric, you need the haberdashery bits to get you going!

    A pink polka dot picot bias binding would look amazing anywhere! Brighten up an old top with it, edge the flamingo fabric with it, just stroke it because it is pretty...we can't get enough of it! Aurifil have a very subtle pink variegated thread that would brighten up any of your quilting needs, along with all of the ribbons and pink buttons we have in our haberdashery it is really hard not get excited about this trend!


    If you like a bit more pow to your wow, why not add some of the funky flamingo fluff or sequins to catch the light and make them look like they are glistening in the sun! 


    Don't forget to show us what you have made by tagging us or using the #exetersewing on facebook, twitter, instagram or pinterest! Happy sewing everyone!
