Cuckoo’s Calling – New Fabrics from Dashwood Studio

Look what arrived recently! A fabric bundle from Dashwood’s new collection, Cuckoo’s Calling by Bethan Janine. I was delighted to be asked by Creative Director, David Sweet, to make a couple of my purse frame pouches using these gorgeous new fabrics for an upcoming Dashwood open day.

Cuckoo’s Calling is Bethan’s second collection for Dashwood Studio. Cuckoo’s Calling is bright and fun and inspired by Bethan’s Grandmother’s cuckoo clock, pretty meadow flowers and little leaves she drew whilst on her holidays.

Such a lovely collection, I’m looking forward to making some purses with these. The fabrics should be arriving in stores now, so go get them! What do you think you’d make from these fabrics?

Update: here’s some new purses I’ve made with these gorgeous fabrics.

  1. Wow! These are colorful and elegant all at once! Of course, I’d make purses. But it would also be cute fabric for aprons or pillows. What about a fan quilt square out of these fabrics for a pillow?

  2. The Cuckoo’s Calling I would make Kitchen Curtains, matching pot holders, and the others some would be for Summer and Spring dresses, and of course crafts such as pillows, fourplay quilts for babies playtime, etc. Blessings Always, Mtetar
