What I made this week with Their Nibs Fabric

I was extremely flattered when sought after Designer kids label Their Nibs of London dropped me a line to say that they love my blog. Their clothing and fabric prints are inspired by the 50s, 60s and 70s and what they do is  unique – so the feeling is pretty darn mutual. :)

They sent me over some of their hand designed fabric prints to work with on a couple of projects. How could you go wrong with the Toadstool fairy print ( above ) My daughter wore the dress today and we were stopped in the street by a lovely lady / complete stranger who said she thought it was beautiful ! I’ve never made pyjamas before, so thought I’d make some for my friends son …think he’s going to really like the pirates and cross bones.

I’ll tell you why I really enjoyed working with this Their Nibs fabric ( and then we’ll move onto the 5 metres giveaway !! :) ) ….

The fabric widths are 150 cm *rapturous applause* which seems rare nowadays but wholly a good thing in my opinion.This means you can get so much more out of each metre and make circle skirts etc with no faffing, front seams etc. The Cotton Poplin was very easy to manipulate with the pyjamas and they both press up lovely, like. I also think the prices are good. There endeth the lesson.

Win 5 metres of Their Nibs fabric – and you get to choose which print !

Lorraine Preston

I would just love to win the red pirate print fabric for my two little girls as their topic this term is ‘Pirates’ and I can just visualise a traditional style dress with a twist!… perhaps a few swarovoski’s even if they have to be black!!!


They are all so cute! I think the Green Spring Fabric is my favourite though :)

Hi there, love all the fabrics but my son would love me to get the blue cars x


Wow! What fabulous makes. I love the dress and the PJs look so warm and snug. I’d chose Green Spring Floral-it’s beautiful.


Absolutely live Ditzy Flower Butterfly! Such an amazing dress you have made, I love it!


Spoilt for choice, all of the fabrics are beautiful.
I would choose the Ditsy Flower Butterfly, it would make an ideal backing fabric for the patchwork quilt I’m planning to get started on.
Plus there’d be plenty left over to make some lovely co-ordinating Cushions and Garland.
Wonderful giveaway!

I’ve been looking for some retro fabric to make a pair of cotton dungarees for my son’s 1st birthday & the blue cars would be perfect! Love xx

Bianca / Little Scandinavian

I would choose the classic toadstools and fairies print. If I win I will make a summer dress and a skirt to my goddaughter. It will also prompt me to get a sewing machine, which my own girls age 8 and 11 so long have been asking for.

Thank you so much for a fab blog and for hosting this competition!

I would love to win the Cream Pirate Print Fabric, I’ve just obtained a pattern for a baby mei tai carrier and this fabric would be perfect to use on the outside.


I’ve love to win the Green Spring Floral. I’d donate the fabric to my mum who is sewing dresses for children in Burma where a refugees’ camp was burned down recently and to children in South Sudan.

I would love the cream pirate print as its great for both boys and girls . PJ’s good idea for it or a party shirt. I love making historical and fancy dress costumes so a long sleeved laced shirt would be great in this fabric.

Jeanette guy

I love the little dress and would choose the same fabric if I was lucky enough to win. Fairy and toadstools. Many thanks
