You can use these printed rubber bands to sew a skirt in a jiffy! Just cut two rectangular pieces of fabric to size, ensuring that they are approximately 40 cm longer than your hip measurements, close the side seams, hem and then top-stitch the upper edge to the stretched rubber band. The basic skirt is ready! This is so quick to make, you can sew a number of them at once.
With some embellishments, sewing by hand is the best option, a case in point being the pearl cord. You can use the cord to embellish bags, dresses or festive tops; there are no limits imposed on your creativity here! It’s best to then sew this fine trimming onto your project by hand. Although this is a little laborious and can take some time, it can also be very relaxing!
Have you also been struck by the lingerie sewing bug? Your lingerie will be even prettier if you trim it with the right elasticated edging. Whether you prefer matching shades or are partial to contrasts: At myfabrics.co.uk, you’ll find a host of solid-shaded and patterned elasticated edging variants!
Do you have a boring old sweatshirt that you’d like to pep up? Or perhaps your favourite shirt has a hole in it and you’re now wondering how you’re ever going to wear it again in spite of it? You can use appliqués to highlight specific elements in a trice and embellish an old item of clothing. From numerals and letters of the alphabet, through to little stars and various emblems and coats of arms, you’ll find a wide selection of appliqués at myfabrics.co.uk!
Perhaps you’re already familiar with fashionable zips with gold teeth; we’ve now included a very special range of zips in the myfabrics.co.uk portfolio. Elegance zips are available in silver, gold and black. They have golden teeth and are perfect for striking, fashionable detailing, such as exposed zips, on a dress or skirt, as even the zip tape is shaded to match and has a subtle sheen. Wouldn’t that be a great idea for detailing on this year’s Christmas dress?
And again, we've fallen in love with the new Aunt Emma items. Sweet ribbons, trimmings and buttons invite you to embellish and 'cosset' your project.

Look for the motifs that your sewing buddy would like the most and surprise her now with a little package!
This is what's needed to complete the perfect sweat jacket look: tube cord. You can use it to give that final touch to a hoodie or to emphasise the sportiness of your unique sweatshirt. We have included tube cord in six colours for you in our range and hope that you will like it as much as we do!
