" Passion for purple!"

" Au Natural "

I feel compelled to share with you my 50 metre roll of natural cotton scrim fabric, 127cm/50" wide.
I have to confess, I was selling this fabric for a friend and it's been going so well that I decided to invest in a roll myself, { sorry Maggie!!}. Seriously, though I don't think she'll mind as I have shipped many metres for her!
The fabric is great for nuno and machine felting and dyes very well. It has an open weave texture, which can be pulled about and frayed. I will be dying some this weekend, to make a scarf for myself and to include in my corsage making.
Cotton scrim is listed in both my folksy and etsy shops. I'm happy to offer it at a reduced price for orders over 4 metres ♥

In fact, the digital revolution is the crafter's all round friend and buddy these days and should be embraced to the full, mwahhh♥. Finally, after composing myself, here's a little collection of some of the vintage and new trims available in my darling supplies shop and I made the banner myself, woohoo, at...
