fabulous freebies!

Thanks to Marceline's timely reminder, I managed to nab a free swatch of eco canvas from Spoonflower.  I wanted to choose something I could actually use in a project, but didn't have any small-scale projects in mind and there was so much to choose from and so little time.  In the end, I opted for this button fabric by Heidi Kenney, which I love, but that doesn't mean I'm not stressing out over all the lovely button-based designs I didn't choose this time.  Dulcie spent £1 of her holiday money on five old buttons last week (go on, yourself, Dulcie!) and I've been wondering where to put them, so I think I'm going to make her a little pouch from this for her to store her new collection.  The swatch is 8 inches square, so it should be a fine size for a beginner button hoarder :)
I think the free swatch offer is open until 4pm today, but don't quote me on that - I find time zones very confusing.


  1. Thank you for mentioning this in time for me to grab a swatch for myself, I chose a lovely bicycle print. Having small children has really developed my ability to make snap decisions... :)

    1. Next time I'm hoping for a bit more notice so I can spend more time making my selection, but there's SO MUCH on there, I don't think you'd ever feel like you'd seen enough. Maybe the smash and grab approach is for the best. Glad you managed to find something too :)
