[Super] Skinny

I was so thrilled when I received news from our Cape Town superstar, Skinny laMinx about her gorgeous new fabric designs… and me-oh-my, I am smitten!

The new Salad Pack tea towel design is my favourite. I love the simple line-drawn salad leaves in the delicious colours of leafy green and rhubarb. Leave the washing up to someone else, let me do the drying!


There’s more laMinx loveliness in the form of Heather’s Succulents and Mushrooms collections…

But wait, there’s still more… the fabulous Flower Fields collection in the prettiest palette:

So make a mad dash over to Skinny laMinx if you’re as smitten as I am with these designs. If you’re South African customers [that would be us, the lucky fishes] or international customers [bit further away, but still lucky, nonetheless] you will not be disappointed with the latest designs!

Fabric Friday: Scraps, Scissors & Ribbons

Hello and a very happy Friday to you all!

A few weeks ago, Skinny laMinx had a sale of fabric scraps over at her studio. I picked up some great fabric pieces which I have good intentions of making into some cushions, and perhaps even using some to line an oversized leather purse I’m planning on sewing: yet another project on my stitch-list! Then I popped into one of my favourite stores, Ebony & Ivory, an emporium of beautiful Petersham ribbons, buttons and gift tags. I stocked up on a variety of ribbons [I love using them in gift wrapping] and combined them with my new fabric and an inherited pair of pinking scissors. They seemed like the perfect match: what do you think?
