Abakhan Projects on a Budget

Would you like to make an Abakhan project?  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.

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.
3. In a few days from today, I will choose a winner who will have one month to choose their booty from Abakhan, make something and write a tutorial.
4. Don't be disheartened if I do not pick your idea this month, there are always other months.
5. The item can be anything at all - clothing, quilted or non quilted items - anything crafty at all really.
6. Be as original, as traditional, as creative or as simple as you like.
7. And this month's theme is summer picnics!


  1. I'd go for a pretty little girls frock with matching dolly frock (for my friend little girl). would be fab for picnics!

  2. I'd love to make similar baby quilts for the twins that are expected in October. With the scraps, I can incorporate them into a diaper bag for my daughter-in-law.

  3. I would make some awesome picnic placemats! With the winter we've had, I'm itching to get out!

  4. I think I would choose one of the bordered cotton lawn prints (likely design 2) or one of prints bordered on both sides (it's 1.5 meters wide!) to make matching or "go together" summer dresses for my 4 pre-school nieces and great nieces.
