A unique slow stitch collection featuring the stunning Flower Fairy Acufactum fabrics designed by Daniela Drescher. When we discovered the Acufactum fabric range, we simply fell in love with the stunning designs and superb quality. These high quality German cotton quilting fabrics feature the beautiful watercolour designs by Daniela Drescher and they are quite simply in a league if their own. Our slow stitching Flower Fairy collection is based on some of these gorgeous characters, each surrounded by their own species of natural flora and fauna. The fairies and creatures play amongst Crocus, Snowdrops, Forget Me Not, Daisies and a whole host of wildflowers and grasses in a range of feminine, spring colours. Carefully sourced coordinating blender fabrics of the same quilting weight, create a selection suitable for collage, journaling, mini quilting and much more. Each collection contains over 15 pieces of high quality fabric. Sizes are quite generous, allowing them to be used for small projects such as pouches and needle cases. One or two of the pieces are plain to allow you to add your own embellishment, painting, stamping or journal notes. Included in each kit will also be a small piece of even weave or Aida, so you can even add your own cameo cross stitch. We include a range of ribbons, lace and trims complimented with DMC or Madeira embroidery threads and a needle pack with a threader and John James high quality needles. A selection of buttons, coordinating beads and embellishments complete the kit and where possible, these are made from natural, sustainable materials. Blender fabrics included in this kit may vary but will stay on theme and the kit will always include the five Daniela Drescher designs. All fabrics are new and are not seconds or scraps. Each set lovingly wrapped in tissue and presented in a sturdy box to make great Birthday, Mothers' Day or Christmas gifts. This wonderful collection is just perfect for slow stitch, or Sewing for the Soul projects and will be a welcome gift for those who enjoy sewing, collage and mixed media. *** Uses for these collections are many and for this reason no instructions are included as this pack is designed for your own creativity***
