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 Easter or spring party - anything at all to do with this time of year!


  1. I love their range of felt! I'd make a couple of Easter Crowns for my children. Felt crowns, velcro fastening, and some cute chicks and eggs on one, and bunnies and flowers on the other.

  2. I would make some Easter theme baby bibs and burp cloths. The baby has to be stylish too.

  3. I think a couple of new spring cushions to brighten the home might be in order. With £20 I'd get 1 meter of cream fabric, a couple of feather inners and a pack of dye (probably a pastely pink colour) I'd then splatter dye the fabric, a watercolour type effect. Nice and fresh! Lou

  4. I would make a wall hanging consisting of flower blocks, in spring colours, either bright yellows, reds and oranges, or soft pastels. Or use Easter themed fabrics.

  5. I would make a table topper, consisting of about six different spring fabrics cut in the shape of a tulip flower and green leaves shapes, then hand sewing each together. Hard to explain but it would be very pretty.

  6. Hi, I would need 3 meters of this:Trailing Rose Purple 112cm, and would use April Rhodes' Staple Dress pattern. I own the pattern already, so all I would need is the fabric. I have the other notions needed.
    Thanks for the giveaway,

  7. I have a wonderful little mini-quilt in mind. Something quite modern that the Stripes and Spots Fat Quarter bundle would be perfect for!!!!
