New into our childrens range is this lovely fairy fabric, with magical fairies, pixies and toadstools in pastle pinks and greens.
This design is printed onto 100% cotton meaning it is durable, natural and washable. The cotton is a perfect weight for curtains, blinds, bags, cushions and much more. This would look amazing in any childs bedroom! Find it on our webshop below.
Wintery designs and cute cuddly animals are the perfect theme for fluffy fleece to cuddle up with as the evenings are getting colder and darker. We have some lovely new designs just in with more on the way! These fleeces are soft and warm to the touch making you want to snuggle into them.
With deigns including unicorns, flamingos, teddy bears, swans, cats, jungle animals, west highland terriers, jigsaw puzzle pieces and much more! Some of these designs are even double sided giving you two different designs on one piece of fabric.
They would make great blankets, dressing gowns, jumpers, hats or even super soft and warm PJs for all the family. We also have a wide range of colours available in plain fleece.
There is lots to choose from in both our Bridport and Yeovil shops, why not pop in and see what all the fuss is about.
We are very proud of our country and particularly our farming roots in Dorset and so when every year the county holds The Great Dorset Steam Fair some of us go a little tractor crazy.
The Great Dorset Steam Fair has been running in Dorset for 49 years, the show started small as an event where people could come and see how people lived and work in years gone by. The show is now widely recognized as a National Heritage show as well as being regarded as the leading show of its type world wide. Now because of its huge size and reputation, people visit and travel with their vintage exhibitions from all over the country and the world. The Great Dorset Steam Fair is now thought to be one of Europes biggest shows.
As mentioned above some of our members of staff (being collectors themselves) go a little crazy when it comes to tractors and vintage machinery so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to you all that we have a few tractor and farm like fabrics within our two shops. Our longest standing member of staff is a farmers wife as is our manageress at Livingstone Textiles, Yeovil.
This first fabric is a lightweight cotton with beautiful and vivid illustrations of vintage tractors at work. This fabric really takes you back to years gone by and how the fields were worked with these beautiful old machines. This fabric is only available at our Bridport Dorset store but can be ordered from Yeovil Somerset. It is an ideal weight for patchwork and dressmaking.
The second fabric tractor fabric we have in stock is a curtain weight material, it is a lot heavier than the cotton one above and work make ideal curtains, cushions and blinds although it is not quite heavy enough to upholster with. This fabric features a range of tractors in more of a sketchy artist way, slightly more cartoon-like. This is a fun design that work be ideal for a tractor crazed child (or adult!). This fabric, similar to the one above shows the tractors at work in the fields and also puts the mind back to years gone by.
If you are traveling down for The Great Dorset Steam Fair, why not have a day out from the vintage work and come and see our vintage inspired fabrics in our Bridport Shop and take some of the Dorset Life home with you.
