London, baby!

I’m back from a very quick visit to London and OHMYGOD I discovered an awesome fabric shop and I could have bought out the entire shop if I had remembered by new PIN number, alas I had to limit myself to the £30 I had in my purse.

So the shop is called “The Shop” rather imaginatively, but it is on Cheshire Street off Brick Lane (E1). Its walkable from Liverpool Street station and Spitalfields, or you can get an overground to Shoreditch High Street. There are lots of little vintage shops (and pop up shops!) in the area too which was nice.

So here’s what I bought:

Velvet, wool and a piece of taffeta…


Some pretty cottons from the 50s…


Two CUTE teatowels.


I also got these two piece of fabric from All The Fun of the Fair which is on the top floor of Kingly Court on Carnaby Street. I got a sneaky little discount because I have supplied product to them before…. I’m just waiting for it to come back!

love love love!
