Cuddle Puzzle Quilt: Pieces By Polly

Standard

If you follow me on Instagram you’l know that I recently made this puzzle quilt from super soft plush fabric. The moment I saw Polly’s quilt shared by Shannon Fabrics I swooned and instantly fell in love. It’s a rainbow! It’s a jigsaw! It’s super soft and fluffy! These are all things that appeal greatly to Mrs Plush and I just had to give it a try. Continue reading

Dashwood Studios Flurry Meets Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton

Standard

The Flurry range from Dashwood Studios has become a firm stock staple for many of you and what’s not to like? It’s a fun, contemporary supporting print in some gorgeous colours. We’ve been asked to colour match Dashwood Studios Flurry with Kona a few times now so we’ve linked the two collections on the website as “Related Products” but I thought I’d list them here for anyone to stumble upon.

Giveaway: Win Compagnie M. Louisa Dress Pattern Plus Fabric!

Standard

Boy, am I happy I stumbled upon Compagnie M. patterns a couple of months ago.  I was looking for a new dress pattern for Littlest Plush and I wanted something funky, with some cute details and preferably with pockets as she does love a spot of treasure collection throughout the day (too cute). I was SO happy when I discovered Compagnie M’s patterns and instantly fell in love with the Louisa Dress, I mean – look at the pretty piping! And the pockets! I was smitten, a new girl crush was born and I immediately snapped up a PDF pattern of the Louisa dress (and a few more besides. Marte’s, the brains behind Compagnie M, has drafted some very amazing contemporary patterns.)

We Won In The British Sewing Awards! Thanking You Muchly

Standard

Well this past week has been a bit of a whirlwind of highs and lows at Plush Towers. The low is that our heating in the warehouse has broken and it’s been close to arctic. We’re still in hats, gloves and scarves and hoping that Mr British Gas is true to his word and gets us warmed up again TODAY (cross your fingers, or send us a blanket?) but I must say that icicles aside I’ve been riding high on the news that we came away with a  few gongs from the 2014 British Sewing Awards.

Website Improvements For Your Pleasure!

Standard

Helloooo!

We have been rolling out a series of improvements to the website over the past couple of months and I just wanted to let you know about one in particular because I think it’s rather splendid. We’ve added a “Zoom” option to all the website photos when you’re looking at a category or search results page. So what? You might think, well it means you can enlarge any fabric to see it up close and check out more detail without having to click in and out of the product itself. This will save you lots of clicks as you’re browsing plus if you like what you see you can pop it in your basket from that very same window – result! This then leaves you within your search results to carry on shopping.

The other enhancement that you might find handy is that we’ve now added “width” as a filter on the left hand side so if you’re looking for a wider fabric they are now much easier to find.

Width

We have lots more enhancements planned for this year but if you have anything you would like to see, do let us know as we’re always keen to hear how we can make the site a better place to hang out.

Enjoy!

Urban Zoologie Minis Now In Stock

Standard

Hello Friends!

I think Ann Kelle’s Monkeys Royal was one of the very first quilt cotton fabrics we stocked, and we still carry it today. “Urban Zoologie” has been a hugely popular collection for us and it’s back, this time a bit smaller, and in my opinion even cuter! The colour palettes have been reworked and I have to say that I’m totally in love with the pink colourway which is contrasted with a soft grey and has a hint of mint (rhyme intended). There are more animals too choose from and some old favourites too. There’s a selection of multicoloured cuties including adorable foxes, chicks, monkeys and owls.

Browse the full collection here and we’ve put together a couple of fat quarter bundles for you too.

Do you have a favourite? I think I’m a little bit in love with the pink elephants.
