My new Crayons print dress – fabric from Minerva Crafts


The lovely people at online craft store Minerva Crafts got in touch to ask if I would like to pick a dress fabric of theirs to use in a project which gave me the opportunity to make something for myself – always a treat :) There were loads to choose from but I plumped for the Pencil Crayons by Timeless Treasures. It’s bold and kitsch and exactly my kind of print.

As I didn’t want to lose the print in gathers or panels, I thought a simple skirt part which I drew up myself – and for the top just a few darts and also lined it ( but not the skirt ). It sits just under the knee and I will probably wear this dress in the Autumn with a top underneath and leggings. IMG_2087


It was a nice fabric to work with – good quality cotton … and I have a little bit left over so might make my girls a little skirt each too :) I will definitely be using more of their fabrics and they have a whole host of other items for knitting, sewing and crafts  – have a look if you fancy – – fab shop !

Really like your new dress. The fabric design works fabulously. Your line placement is very good. One for your etsy shop. You have a good imagination for fabric use, this one just said pencil cases to me!


Thanks Sarah :) I have been asked to make one of these for someone which is nice! x
