October at Plush Addict

Time to look at the latest arrivals at Plush Addict, starting with one of the newest fabric ranges from Riley Blake, Fancy & Fabulous.  It's got fresh colours with a hint of vintage in the rich cream and soft grey toned aquas.


I had noticed this print on Cindy's (of Live a Colourful Life) Instagram feed- I think you can see why and I didi wonder what the design was, turns out it's part of this range!  It's a great text style print!- Fabulous pattern in cream.


There's a good mix of feature, blender and pretty ptinys, I especially liked this sprig coral floral- Fabulous Breath Coral- gorgeous!  Makes me think of summer way before I should be doing, glorious! Also available and just as lovely in mint.


I'm spoilt for choice with this range.  Look at this beauty, Fabulous Loving Life in Mint.


There are matching Kona solid suggestions for Fabulous & Fancy here.

From Moda, there's the retro psychedelic Neco range by MoMo which is typical of the MoMo style and colour choices from previous collections.  There's a glorious eye spy feature print which takes me straight to 1970s children's furnishing fabrics! This is Hide and Seek in Multi/red






Love the eyes on this design!  It comes in another colour way and in a cotton linen blend option too. 

Each month, there are a special offers on different items for a limited time period.  At the moment, there's a special offer on zips so it you are thinking ahead to a mega cushion making session in preparation for Christmas or getting supplies in to make a stack of zip pouches- now's the time.  The 30 % off, discount ends on Sunday and includes lacey zips and metal zips as well as the usual dress and concealed zips, open ended etc.

There's also a discount on all Olfa products now including rotary cutters, blades, rulers, cutting mats and more.  This ends 25th October so you'll need to be quick.  A handy choice is the Olfa 28mm rotary cutter which I bought a few months back.  This is excellent for cutting around tight corners and I also use it if I am making lingerie- again because of the curves.  

For the dressmakers out there, I noticed some new high quality heavy denim described as "exactly the same one as used by Levis", 11 oz so good for more structured clothing- like a Grainline Moss skirt, bags or cushions. 


There's also a stretch denim (2% spandex) which would be softer and forgiving to wear.



For those of you fancying making a winter coat, this wool blend Luxury Italian coating would be great for a simple wrap style coat or cape.  


It's an wool/viscose blend and looks like a very classy fabric indeed, gorgeous colour!  I imagine a good pattern for this would Vogue V9038, the drawing isn't too inspiring but you can imagine how the fabric would work with this, plus not much sewing required.  The high street shops are full of cape/scarf coats in similar styles but not made of such high quality fabric as this.
Here's a similar idea from McCalls, M6209

I feel like there's too much to choose from this month, oh the hardship!  Enjoy perusing! x
