HOT SHOP: Clothkits

April 23, 2010

Haberdashery heaven…

Today, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Clothkits website…and found myself in a crafter’s paradise. Check out these lovely Liberty print bias bindings on wooden spools and these lovely buttons – I’m not sure where to put them yet, but those moustache ones are irresistible!

If you need ribbons, cotton threads or sewing kits, there’s a huge range on offer…

Ooooh – I like the tape measure ribbon! The black one would look gorgeous sewn across the edge of a crisp white tablecloth, or tied around presents in fuchsia pink tissue paper. Have a lovely weekend – the sun is shining here in London, so I’ll be giving my shed a second coat of paint (very inspired by the lovely sewing shed over on Tales of a Junkaholic recently but not sure mine will look as lovely what with our lawn mower and all…SIGH) – I’ll be back on Monday with some VERY pretty styling ideas, but now it’s time to hit Soho and sit in the sunshine! – Ellie


Get creative…

If you want to jazz up dull-looking curtains with a luxurious ribbon tieback or get busy beading stylish designs onto your cushions, then head down to the the V V Rouleaux warehouse clearance sale this Saturday 28th February at the Trade Vaults, 6 Tun Yard, Peardon Street, London SW8 – I’m told there’s bargains to be had so if you see someone covered in trimmings and fighting over the last piece of satin ribbon, that’ll be me  – Emily
