Stretch Fabric

These are a few of the new stretch fabric prints we've recently added to the web site. They're part of the nani IRO collection. These are 100% cotton and really soft. Ideal for t-shirts for big or little people!

Corduroy Fabric

I'd forgotten to blog about this new(ish) Liberty corduroy fabric. The designs are printed on a soft, velvet-like corduroy that is really light weight which makes it very versatile. They look great teamed with denim fabric.

Denim Fabric

We've just introduced a new range of basic denim fabrics to our online fabric store. These a really nice fashion quality denims that we'll continue to restock. There are four new fabrics in the range:


Denim fabric
Denim fabric 140gsm


Denim blue 140gsm - this is a beautiful soft, very light weight denim suitable for clothing, especially children's clothing.


Denim fabric
Denim Blue 260gsm


Denim Blue 260gsm - This is a fairly standard jeans-weight denim in a darkish blue. It's suitable for structured clothing of all sorts.


Denim fabric
Denim Blue 320gsm


Denim Blue 320gsm - This is a heavier weight blue denim suitable for cushions and upholstery projects (or very structured clothing).


Denim fabric
Denim Charcoal 340gsm


Denim Charcoal 340gsm - This is a nice darkish charcoal coloured heavy weight denim. It's suitable for cushions and upholstery.

All of these denim fabrics will fade with washing and wearing. They may also appear slightly darker online than they actually are (the 140gsm denim is is the lightest in colour). We're happy to send customers swatches of these. Just request them via our Swatch request form.

I was recently flicking through my copy of the Prints Charming book above (which I absolutely love) and I found this inspiring little footstool upholstered in denim, very cleverly screen printed on the reverse side and embellished with embroidery. Love it! A beautiful example of what you can do with classic denim.

Liberty Fabric

Here are some new Liberty Fabric designs. We've had these in stock for a few weeks, but I'd forgotten to mention them. View the full Liberty Fabric range - it's one of our absolute favourites!

Upholstery Fabric

We often get asked if we stock upholstery fabric. It's a tricky question to answer as upholstery fabric is traditionally very heavy and 100% synthetic. But we find that many customers are specifically not looking for this type of fabric. They're after something natural, more earthy looking and textured to suit a contemporary interior. So we've created a new category in our online fabric store for Upholstery Fabric. We'll continue to add fabrics to this ranged as they come along.

Organic Cotton Fabric

One of our lovely customers, Marcia, sent us these photos of a beautiful cot quilt that her mother made. It's made from a Cloud 9 organic cotton fabric.

Marcia's mother said that she absolutely loved sewing with it. We often hear this about sewing with organic fabrics as they are softer than normal cotton and have a beautiful silky hand.

A big thank you to Marcia for sending these beautiful photos!

Childrens Fabrics

Liberty Fabric

The April issue of House & Garden magazine has this great little display of childrens fabrics. They made up some cushions from the fabric we sent them. Cushion 6 is a Liberty fabricLiberty Fairford in pink, and cushion 5 is an Echino Flower Bed fabric. I love the way the whole scene has come together!

Curtain Fabric - Ty Pennington Impressions

Ty Pennington Curtain Fabric

So, who is the handsome man? And, what does he have to do with fabric?

Ahhh, well let me tell you...

Ty Pennington hosts loads of home renovation and DIY television shows in North America and the UK. He also designs furniture and home products for Sears and Howard Miller Furnishings. And in his spare time, he whips up a couple of fabric collections under the Ty Pennington Impressions label.

The fabrics we are stocking is the home decorating one (the other range is a lighter weight quilting collection). It's  printed on 138cm wide curtain fabric. I really love this collection. Many of the home decorating fabric designs that come out of the US don't really suit the Australian colour palette, lifestye or general aesthetic. But this one does. It's really relaxed and contemporary and includes neutral colours at it's core, peppered with punchy spice and cool ice.

New hemp and organic cotton fabric

I've just added two new hemp and organic cotton fabrics to the fabric shop. The Hemp and organic cotton textured birch has lovely variegated natural colours and is ideal for all sorts of home decorating, such as curtains, blinds, cushions, lampshades, slip covers and light upholstery. The Hemp and organic cotton stripe brown co-ordinates nicely with the textured one and is also a great home decorating all-rounder.
