Abakhan Projects on a Budget

Before we get started on the post, I'd just like to let you know that Abakhan Fabrics have just launched a delivery service to the Republic of Ireland.

In this economic climate, we are all thinking about what we can and cannot afford to make, what fabrics we can and cannot buy, what notions etc.  Well how about coming up with some ideas for projects on a budget?  THIS FEATURE IS NOW OPEN WORLDWIDE.

Here's the idea.  You head on over to Abakhan Fabrics and pick out £20 worth of anything that takes your eye.  We send it to you free, you make, photograph and write a tutorial to go on my blog.  And of course there's a button.  I do love a button.

So here's what you need to do:

1.   You can now be anywhere in the world to participate in this challenge!
2.   Leave a comment on this post telling me what you would like to make using £20 worth of anything from Abakhan.  eg. I would like to make a velodrome tea cosy or I would like to make a quilted gold medal.
3.   In a couple of days from today, we will choose a winner who will have one month to choose their booty from Abakhan, make something and write a tutorial.  So for this first item, we will be hoping to schedule a post by end August (sooner if you're ready sooner!).
4.   Will and I are planning on this being a monthly feature so don't be disheartened if we do not pick your idea this month, there are always other months.
6.   The item can be anything at all - clothing, quilted or non quilted items - anything crafty at all really.
7.   Be as original, as traditional, as creative or as simple as you like.
8.   And this month's theme - well you've already guessed it - HALLOWEEEEEEEEEN and Abakhan are making it easy for you with a Halloween department waiting for you!  


  1. I would make Momma and baby jack-o-lantern pincushions.

  2. I'd make personalised trick or treating bags!


Comment away peeps :-)
