Now that Cotton+Steel’s latest collections have all arrived we wanted to share with you some of our favourite makes from their latest look book. Cotton+Steel have put together a Look Book that showcases their latest collections and shows off some projects that look great made out of their new fabrics. We have picked out a few of our favourites that are all made out of fabrics we stock.
Jubilee is inspired by a retro neighbourhood block party, and it has a fun vintage flair.
It features fabrics with make-up prints and vintage dresses. These prints are ideal for small make-up bags and pouches.
Another key print from the collection is called Confetti, it comes in 3 colour ways, and has an ombre design with little metallic gold squares sprinkled all over. The bold stripe of colour that runs along the selvedge looks great when used around the hem of a dress.
The pink and red that is featured in the dress above got snapped up really quick but we still have plenty of the yellow and blue.
Sleep Tight is a gender-neutral collection inspired by what babies might dream about, and features a sophisticated colour palette that is on trend with modern nurseries.
Our favourite print from this collection is the large panel print.
It is a really versatile design as it looks great as a quilt as well as being perfect for cutting around each of the motifs to create stuffed toys. You can download the free pattern for the wholecloth quilt on the Cotton+Steel Blog. It is great for beginners as it simply uses 2 repeats of the panel for the whole of the front of the quilt and then you can hand stitch around each of the motifs to add extra detail.
You can also make cute stuffed toys by cutting round the motifs or turn them into a mobile using the pattern from craftofquilting.com.
This print comes in two colours, grey and neutral and we love them both!
As this is a collection designed with little people in mind it also makes lovely children’s clothes. The dress on the left is a Geranium dress by Made by Rae and it has been made using the print called Big Roar Neutral, it features leaping tigers in blue on a natural background, this print also comes in white with black tigers.
The romper on the right is a Modern Layette Set by Green Bee Patterns and it has been made using the print called Prickles Neutral. The print features cute little hedgehogs which are also available in grey.
Kujira and Star
This collection is based on a whimsical story about a whale and a starfish so it has a bit of a nautical theme. Therefore we thought these fish drawstring bags suited it perfectly!
They are a made using a free tutorial from womansweekly.com.
They have been made using fabrics called 'Trajectory Starfish' and 'Flotsum and Jetsum Sand Dollar' which are also available in other colours.
Hopefully the look book has helped to inspire you, there are some really lovely makes included. If you have been busy sewing and have made some projects for yourself please share them with us, we always love to see what our customers have been making!
