We are so excited to bring you a new fabric base to try, in collaboration with Hop Skip Jump Fabrics! Click here to view the prints available and place your order.

We also have a limited range of in stock softshell here.

Softshell is a warm and cosy fabric, perfect for winter sews. It is 100% polyester, 320gsm, and has minimal stretch - just enough for wearing ease.  It will be easiest to sew with a microtex needle, and your normal domestic sewing machine should be able to handle it with no problems.

Softshell has a smooth, water resistant face and a soft fleece backing, and doesn't need to be lined. Don't forget your sewing clips, much easier and kinder to the fabric than pinning!

We've rounded up some patterns and blogs to inspire you and get you thinking about what you can make! Don't forget to check out our Facebook groups for a discount code on your preorder: Flossy Fabrics Fanatics and HSJ Fabrics.
