Strike Off Sewing - Sew Unique Fabrics - Mermaids/Merboys Please Preorder!
The lovely Jess is the owner/designer of Sew Unique Fabrics and I have to say it is refreshing to come across a business with great designs but also exceptional customer service. She really goes above and beyond, helping colour match fabrics, sourcing customer requests where she can, adding designs people are after, evolving her range (SUMS are amazing) and general customer service with a smile!
You probably want to know more about the preorder, am I right?! This round is all about Mermaids, Merboys and GLITTER! It is so pretty and there is literally something for everyone. I was very lucky to get a few strike offs to sew. I made a gorgeous Hoodie for my daughter, 6 undies for my daughter and also 3 boys boxerwear. Everything matches so beautifully and some of their in stock solids and yarn dyed stripes also match! Fabric options are Cotton Lycra, Cotton Woven and Bamboo Lycra!
First up we have the gorgeous Marty Hoodie, pattern by Ainslee Fox which featured in Issue 11 of One Thimble Magazine. This pattern is a knit pattern. I made a size 5 tunic length. I used a Mermaids Please kids panel for the front, Purple and Blue Mermaid Scales for the sleeves and Outer Hood and paired it with the perfectly matching Elusive Eggplant Solid for the inner hood, neckband and back. Apart from having the scales upside down hahaha it turned out gorgeous! Here are some pics to drool over!
