Instant Colour (kits, books and patterns)

We are so lucky to have some hugely talented designers creating some beautiful patterns that show off our fabrics quite scrumptiously, some of these you can buy as kits  that include the fabrics and instructions (and are shown under the lower heading of ‘Kits to buy’, with links to the shop).

Designs and patterns have resulted from blog hops and competitions, others are one-offs in response to a particular set of fabrics. To celebrate the breadth and talent of these we have produced a range of illustrated booklets so you can let your own creative juices flow, these are downloadable under the Free inspirational booklets heading.
