Gettin' crafty on a rainy day.

It's winter, it's cold, so it's time to craft! Thankfully, Madame Fancy Pants is full of things to keep you busy on a rainy day. 

I've turned to Sublime Stitching for their beautiful, easy and fail-safe embroidery patterns. We stock their iron-on transfer designs, metallic flosses and needles. Check out their needle pack here. The pack comes with a handy magnet to keep them safe.

Or, use their embroidery pattern craft pad, which includes over 75 fresh, fun embroidery patterns. (Craft pad available in store only. Or get in contact and we can send one out to you). 

I recently used a couple of their patterns to make this gift for my aunt's 60th birthday. I combined two of their designs (and had a little fun with my own ideas) and this was the result! 

I couldn't be happier with how it turned out, although I should have practised a few stitches before attempting them on the real thing! Luckily Sublime stitching packs come with great instructions for different stitches. Easy as! 

Little one on the way? Give a personalised gift with this Sublime Stitching Baby Bib Embroidery Kit. It has everything you need, including two bibs, embroidery floss, needles and a range of iron-on transfers. Just pick your design and get stitching!
