Down in Devon we are still getting the very tail end of summer weather so its warm even if it is a little damp and drizzly but the hints of Autumn are giving me thoughts of cosy times ahead-I've already purchased sheepskin boots for indoors to save my chilly feet. I spotted some gorgeous flannels and brushed cottons at Eternal Maker, look at these beauties...just arrived
Robert Kaufman Shetland flannel in Ocean. The colour, the herringbone, dreamy isn't it? Perfection for PJs, pillow cases and also bags, tablet cases and man/boy gifts. It has a great utilitarian and yet snuggly appeal. Absolutely love it and I think this will fly out of the shop once the weather turns chilly. Also available in Redwood and Jet.
Flannel is always a great fabric for children. I spotted the Sew Liberated Mei Tei baby carrier pattern was in stock at Eternal Maker at the moment. The carrier has no hardware, just flannel lined cotton. The Shetland flannels would make a lovely winter carrier.
There are some lovely brushed cottons that would work well too with the carrier or with simple dresses, tunics or PJs for winter cosy clothes. This deep pinky red Japanese floral brushed cotton almost makes me think Christmas (shh!).
My love of Nani Iro means I am always looking at those prints with an eye to future sewing plans. A long sleeved dress in on of these brushed cottons is calling me...Little Letters in navy
Are you ready to snuggle?
