Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Voile

One of our recent collections to our store is 'Little Folks' by Anna Maria Horner. I am so excited about this new collection as it is printed on a new substrate for our store 'voile'. When these fabrics arrived, I could not stop touching them as they are so soft and silky and the brilliant colours, a signature for Anna Maria Horner fabrics are just exquisite. I often find it difficult to describe the colours of Anna Maria Horner fabrics as they are just so unique.

Little Folks voile can be beautifully sewn into childrenswear, womenswear, quilts, and soft furnishings so is in fact very versatile. While slightly dearer in price, it is very reasonable when you look at its quality and that it is printed on an extra wide width of 54/55" which actually reduces the length of fabric required to complete a pattern.

I really could go on about these fabrics forever but instead I will direct you to a fantastic post Anna Maria has written here, which covers her experiences with voile, its uses, washing, sewing and durability. This really is a great post and I am sure will inspire many to sew with voile for the first time!

Here are some pics of Lani in her new dress made from just one of the beautiful designs in this collection Diamond Mine Pomegranite with Little Folks River Rock for the hem. This is just one of the fantastic custom made pieces we will be offering in our 'new look' store very soon. (More on that one very soon!)

The latest Anna Maria Horner sewing patterns have also arrived.

Evening Empire dress with four different options.

Roundabout Dress & Cami with three different options.

Fabulous NEW bag pattern the Sidewalk Satchel.

Also a quick note to let you know we will be popping many more NEW fabrics in the shop this week!
