Sewing, crafting, inspiration…
I recently received a bundle of the new fabric collection Retro Orchard, by the talented Wendy Kendall for Dashwood Studio. I absolutely adore this new collection! It’s vibrant, modern and I just love the combination of fruits and floral motifs. Dashwood is holding a big open day for their trade customers and I was really pleased to be asked to make something for the display they’re creating. It’s going to be a kitchen setting, so I’ve made this modern laundry bag for the event:
Retro Orchard is Wendy’s 2nd collection for Dashwood. It combines bold graph fruit motifs with fun pattern fills. The contemporary palette makes the collection perfect for use in both the modern kitchen and junior apparel. Wendy’s first collection for Dashwood, was Petite Street – which I used to design one of my modern nappy bag sewing patterns.
Dashwood Studio is celebrating it’s upcoming first year anniversary and continues to go from strength to strength. The studio now has eight signature collections to it’s name, as well as a range of 4 novelty prints and a collection of 18 Flurry print colour co-ordinates.
Dashwood is planning a big competition at the end of June to co-inside with their birthday. Each day they’ll give away something ‘Made with Dashwood’ from each collection they’ve released, plus a grand prize bundle for one lucky winner from all the entries they receive!
