A close up on our ‘Summer in the Garden’ Vignette!

Summer is here (I think!) and there is nothing better than sitting out in the garden with a good book or handwork project! Our latest vignette is inspired by long summer afternoons doing just this. Pop along to our West Hampstead shop to see it in person or keep reading to find out more!

Summer in the Garden Vignette

Our lovely summer lady is wearing the Christine Haynes Sylvie Dress in Checkers – 1/2″ Gingham in Santa.

We love the big pockets with this pattern…. perfect for your sunglasses!

You have to watch your pattern matching with this fabric! Keep an eye out for our helpful hints on pattern matching post coming soon.

Summer in the Garden Vignette

We really wanted a summer chair for this display and there is nothing better (except perhaps a sandy beach) than a good old-fashioned deckchair!

Summer in the Garden Vignette

This one is another Ikea purchase and we have re upholstered it in the fun Trailer Travel in Light Green fabric from Michael Miller.

Summer in the Garden Vignette

The quilting cotton is strengthened with the original cover and some calico inside so we shouldn’t have any deckchair fails!!!

We have the summer essentials ready… a good magazine, a fan to keep you cool, drinks and some snacks!

Not forgetting some tea-lights for late night relaxing!

The lovely and super talented Erin from BerinMade made those amazing paper flowers! How awesome are they!

They look so great hanging above our vignette in the shop and you can find out more about them in Erin’s new book, Paper Parties!

 We hope you enjoyed reading all about our ‘Summer in the Garden’ vignette. We would love to see all your summer makes too. Tag your creations with #thevillagehaberdashery. Happy Sewing!

Wonderland vignettes in our West Hampstead Shop!

Today Kym is taking over the blog to share all of the gorgeous samples we have in the shop using fabric from the Wonderland fabric collection from Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel! We got some great snaps of these garments and quilts, but in the shop they really tell the Alice in Wonderland story so we hope you’ll come in to see them all in person. It’s so much fun in here!

When I heard that we were about to receive the stunning Wonderland collection from Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel I was so excited and my head started buzzing with ideas! I have always loved the Alice in Wonderland story and it was a dream come true to have the opportunity to create a shop full of themed displays.

Our new shop is the perfect setting for our cute vignettes and I had great fun creating a little scenes in each area. Annie and I popped out onto one of the pretty roof gardens behind our shop for the photoshoot. We hope you like our new backdrops.

The Tea Party

Is there a more perfect dress for afternoon tea than the Colette Rue Dress in a beautiful Garden Party print fabric?

I just love the v shaped bodice (you can just about see it on the below image) and pleated skirt. Such an elegant shape! This dress is also fully lined in Kona Cotton Solids Indigo.

Just like in our blue, orange and ivory vignette we re-covered this Ikea Ekenäset Armchair in a new fabric. This time the Wonderland Canvas in Light Blue Metallic was the obvious option as it is so gorgeous and I just love how it has turned out! A big thanks to @electricsmoke for helping me out with the staple gun when putting it together!

Last time we didn’t share the back of the chair with you but here it is! It has two YKK 22inch Standard zips mimicking the original Ikea upholstery underneath.

I had a lovely couple of afternoons at local ceramic painting shop Art for Fun because you simply can’t have a tea party without a teapot! I painted this one in a Cheshire Cat theme with matching tea cup. The little Doormouse asleep inside is knitted up in Cascade 220 in Walnut Heather and this pattern from Ravelry.

Mad Tea Party

I spotted this tutorial online to make a Mad Hatter’s Hat and @chefgreg took up the challenge. Isn’t it fab! It is amazing what you can create with cardboard, paper and the all important Mod Podge!

Mad Hatter Hat

Alice and the White Rabbit

The first window you come to in the shop is the home of the White Rabbit! He is looking very smart in the Oliver + S Art Museum Vest in Magic Forest in Neutral and Cotton + Steel Basics – Netorious in Black Cat. I love how well these fabrics go together. The fastenings are Black Kam Snaps!

His bow tie is in Kona Cotton Solids Black and made using this tutorial. I created his fluffy tail using a ball of Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran in Natural and the really fun Multipom pom pom maker! The shorts are Oliver + S Sketchbook Shorts in Robert Kaufman‘s Manchester in Charcoal and the shirt is our usual go-to white button down Oliver + S Sketchbook Shirt.

In this vignette we also have Alice looking very pretty in her Megan Neilsen Darling Ranges Dress stitched up in Caterpillar Dots in Cobalt Metallic.

I had a great time making the self covered buttons with Cotton + Steel BasicsNetorious in Goldilocks and Silver. They are so easy to make!

Darling Ranges Buttons

Quilt Garden

On our quilt swings in the shop we have two fabulous quilts! The first has been stitched by Caroline in a fabulous Backgammon design. The pattern is the Melody Miller Playful Quilt and can be downloaded from the Cotton + Steel website.

It is so cool how she has used the selvedge in the piecing!

And of course not forgetting her trademark paw print signature.

Our second beautiful quilt was stitched by our teacher and friend Jenny Haynes. She has taken inspiration from a Double Drunkard’s Path block quilt block to create this striking design which is called ‘Five Impossible Things’.

The background print is Magic Forest in Midnight Metallic and I just love how the gold shines!

Jenny has created a no binding effect on the quilt edges which gives it a really clean modern finish.

The back of quilt is a great neutral contrast to the front and really shows off her exquisite quilting!

Painting the Roses

Our Queen of Hearts is wearing the simply stunning By Hand London Flora Dress in the Painted Roses in Orange Rayon. (This print also comes in a stylish black colourway). The rayon has such a lovely feel to it and do not fear, it is not as slippery to work with as you might think! I just used some finer needles to compliment when stitching, Schmetz Universal Needles – Size 60/8 worked great.

The full circle skirt on this pattern creates such a lovely silhouette and she looks so chic in our window!

Our little girl is wearing the super cute Merchant and Mills The Skipper Dress. How sweet is she! Fabric is Follow Suit in Orange Metallic.

I couldn’t resist making some paper roses from our paper flower making supplies. The Queen of hearts is not going to be happy with me… we had better get painting those roses red!

Be part of our upcoming Wonderland display!

Calling all Knitters and Crocheters!

To celebrate the arrival of the much anticipated Wonderland collection by Rifle Paper Company for Cotton and Steel (coming so soon!) we are planning a big Alice in Wonderland themed display for our West Hampstead shop and we need your help!
Wonderland by Rifle Paper Co.

We would love you to get your knitting needles and crochet hooks out and stitch us some tea party treats! We are looking for miniature cakes, biscuits, cookies, and tea cups, juice bottles…. you get the idea!

Crochet Cake Sachets Inseparable Cake

The only criteria is that they should be no bigger than 4 inches by 4 inches. Pick any colours you like – this is a great project for using up up your bits of left over yarn!

There are some great free patterns out there and you can find links to some good ones below. Or, of course, you can make up your own! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • For crocheters check out the totally adorable Crochet Cake Sachets by Normalynn Hood. The images that follow are from this collection!
  • For knitters we love Jean Greenhouse’s Tea Party Treats!

Crochet Cake Sachets Mini Cakes

Please drop off your finished goodies at our shop in West Hampstead or pop them in the post to us by 31 March (our new postal address is The Village Haberdashery, Unit 6, Hardy Building, Heritage Lane, NW6 2BR). We aim to reveal our displays at the beginning of April so we would love to receive your work before then if possible. But don’t panic – we can still add items to it if you don’t finish in time!

Crochet Cake Sachets Cat

Afterwards we will donate them all to The Children’s Society shop on West End Lane.

Have fun! And if you have any questions, contact us.

A close up on our blue, orange and ivory vignette!

This vignette is my absolute favourite and it’s right in the front of our West Hampstead shop when you walk in, with a gorgeous antique mirror behind it looking like it belongs in everybody’s dream home! Again, it was one of those ideas that brewed for months while we waited to figure out when on earth we were going to get to move in. I knew we needed an upholstered chair in the shop, with a chunky knitted throw on top, and these pieces came together better than I could have dreamed!

Blue, red and white vignette at The Village Haberdashery

This chair is just so gorgeous! I love it so much. The plan is to upholster it in new fabric about every six weeks but it’s going to be so hard to let it go! It is an Ikea Ekenäset Armchair and the fabric is Daisy Fields in Blue from Trinket Canvas by Melody Miller for Cotton and Steel. The only thing that makes me feel better is that it is destined to be covered in Wonderland Canvas by Rifle Paper Co. next!

Chair upholstered in Trinket Canvas by Melody Miller

This chunky throw is the Montauk Blanket by Loopy Mango knitted up in Big Loop Merino in Ivory. It’s so great to have it on display because it really demonstrates what a show stopper this yarn is. We have kits for this blanket and they knit up in just a few hours!

Loopy Mango Big Loop Montauk Blanket

Our lady is wearing a Fancy Tiger Crafts Fen Dress in Checkers Gingham in 1″ Gingham in Navy from Cotton and Steel. It was super windy the day we had to take these pictures so we didn’t get the best shots, but this dress is so cute, so soft, and just going to be a dream to wear one day (by me, I hope!)

Fancy Tiger Crafts Fen in Checkers by Cotton and Steel

Finally we added a lampshade! These are a quick and fun make using one of our kits and this one is made up in Check It in Tangerine (sold out, sorry!) from Euclid by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman.

Lampshade in Euclid by Carolyn Friedlander

Apart from the blanket on loan from Loopy Mango, the samples were all made by Kym!

A close up on our neon vignette!

We have such a fun neon vignette in our West Hampstead shop, and we’re finally sharing it with you! As you know, we love neon so much around here we’ve given you a special place on our site to find all the neon!

Neon Vignette

So let’s have a look at these fun samples, shall we? First up, we have this awesome Super Cropped Cardigan on loan from Loopy Mango knit up in Merino No. 5 in Spicy Hot Pink. We have this pattern as a digital download that we can share with you when you purchase yarn for the project! Everyone in the shop has tried it on and it’s so fun. The denim skirt is a Grainline Moss Skirt in Selvedge Denim by Robert Kaufman. The skirt was sewn by Zoe Edwards.

Our little girl is wearing an Oliver + S Roller Skate Tunic in XOXO in Lightening from the Cotton and Steel Basics collection sewn by Kym. The ribbon is a cotton twill ribbon in Ivory. The little shorts are Green Bee Anya shorts in chambray sewn by Charlotte that have previously been seen in this window and this window.

Finally, we have these fabulous neon macrame plant hangers! Caroline, Kym and I made these with Susana Cunha for this display and I just adore them. It’s hard to get a good photo where they are in front of the window, but they look amazing! Exactly what I imagined when I dreamt up this vignette months ago.

If you want to learn macrame, Susana has a tutorial for these plant hangers on The Daily Stitch here and a class coming up on 25 March that you can sign up for here!

Close up on our Valentine’s Day vignette!

Our new shop has lots of windows, but they aren’t quite as visible from the street. They are also smaller than our big window in the old shop. So what we’re doing now is creating smaller vignettes, which we’ll change out more frequently. And that means lots more inspiration for you!

Valentine's Day Vignette

This is the little vignette we put together for Valentine’s Day, photographed outside in West Hampstead Square. Our chief garment sample sewer is Kym and she made both of these lovely dresses!

Colette Myrtle Dress

This dress is a Colette Myrtle and it is sewn up in viscose/spandex jersey in Cardinal, one of the zillion new colours we have in stock.

Colette Myrtle Dress

The Myrtle is such a pretty and flirty pattern, yet in a drapey jersey with a relaxed fit, it’s also comfy!

Our little girl is wearing the Oliver + S Croquet Dress in the darling Hot to Trot print in red from Michael Miller‘s Equestrian collection.

Oliver + S Croquet Dress

The contrast bands are Kona Cotton Solids in Paprika.

Oliver + S Croquet Dress

These paper flowers were created for our Les Fleurs window and have faded a little from being in the window, but I love the way they look wrapped around this old ladder!

Paper flower ladder

I’m just going to keep trying to think of ways to use this ladder in displays. It’s so fun!

Christmas 2016 window display at our West Hampstead shop!

This window! It is so full of amazing, gorgeous things and I love it so much and am so proud! I hope you’ll come by our West Hampstead shop and see everything in person.

Christmas 2016 Shop Window

First, the garments! These were sewn by Kym.

On our lady we have a stunning party dress made by mashing up two Sew Over It dress patterns! The bodice is from the Betty Dress and the skirt is from the Rosie Dress.

Christmas Betty Dress

The fabric is the Brambleberry in Burgundy Metallic print from Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge by Violet Craft and has gold ink that shimmers when the light hits it.

Christmas Betty Dress

We’ve put two tulle underskirts under there to give it that lovely full silhouette. It’s such a stunner!

Christmas Betty Dress

Our little man is wearing a simplified Oliver + S Art Museum Vest in Ho Ho Ho in Red from Winter Essentials IV. Kym used it for the front and the back so it’s just so fun and charming (so stealing this for Harvey!) The shorts are Oliver + S Sketchbook Shorts in Robert Kaufman‘s Manchester in Charcoal.

He’s also wearing a bow tie in Shimmer Reflection in Green from Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge made using this tutorial and our go-to white button down Oliver + S Sketchbook Shirt.

Christmas Bow Tie

Our little girl is wearing a Made by Rae Geranium Dress (we can’t get enough of this pattern) in Timber Valley in Evergreen Metallic from Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge and it’s the cutest, loveliest Christmas dress ever!

Caroline made the quilt using a Christmas tree block she created and it looks so good! We’ll be sharing a tutorial on this quilt next week.

Caroline's Christmas Tree Quilt

We put a bundle of the fabrics she used for the trees together you can find it here. It’s lots of Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge and a few other gorgeous fabrics with metallic gold or red and green designs.

Caroline's Christmas Tree Quilt

It’s hard to see in pictures, but the background fabric is Large Snowflake Pigment on White from Winter Essentials IV by Studio E.

Caroline's Christmas Tree Quilt

A few of the fabrics Caroline used were directional, and when you cut the trees for these blocks you end up with upside-down triangles that are perfect for bunting. If you make both projects, this is a no-waste fabric situation!

Christmas Bunting

Christmas Bunting

She backed the bunting with Tangly Lights in Santa from All the Trimmings by Riley Blake and used white bias binding to string them together.

Christmas Bunting

Kym made the toddler-sized tree based on the free Stanley Tree pattern from Sewaholic. With the larger version of the pattern as a starting point, we re-drew the tree to make it as tall as possible while still fitting on half the width of standard fabric. The fabric we chose for the tree is Corny Cane in Green from Holiday by Michael Miller and it’s so perfect for this project!

Sewaholic Stanley Tree

Kym also made the smaller version of the pattern for our table with scraps from the big tree. We topped both with a simple red ribbon bow.

Sewaholic Stanley Tree

Kym shared her top five tips for sewing a Stanley Tree if you’d like to make your own!

New shop window featuring Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co for Cotton and Steel

It’s time to show you our new West Hampstead shop window and I’m so excited! The samples (and the fabrics) in this window are some of my all time favourites. I knew we’d do a window all around Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co when the collection arrived from Cotton and Steel. We love it and you love it so we wanted to have some fun with it! Read on to find out all about these projects.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co shop window at The Village Haberdashery in London

Now on to the dresses! We went with all girls for this window. Lots of lovely florals and pretty gathers all around. Kym made all of these garments for the window and she did a great job.

I’m really sorry to say that a lot of these fabrics are totally sold out, but I think there is still loads of inspiration to be found here! When we planned this window we picked fabrics that we still had loads of…but they went fast.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Deer and Doe Sureau Dress

Our lady is wearing a sleeveless Deer and Doe Sureau Dress in Birch in Periwinkle and I am bonkers crazy about it. This is one of my favourite dress patterns and this is one of my favourite fabrics from the collection. You love it too…we’ve gone through three bolts and it’s back on pre-order for October delivery. I can’t wait for this dress to be MINE!

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Deer and Doe Sureau Dress

Did you know that you can now purchase Deer and Doe patterns online in our shop? It’s so exciting!

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Deer and Doe Sureau Dress

Our littlest is wearing the Oliver + S Butterfly Blouse and Skirt. The blouse is sewn up in Carousel in Pink and the skirt is in Netorious in Anna Peach, one of the new Cotton and Steel Basics designed to coordinate with Les Fleurs.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Oliver + S Butterfly Blouse and Skirt

The top has a sweet ruffle hem and flutter sleeves. We couldn’t resist adding a spotty button on the back.

This skirt is a smart twist on a simple elastic-waist gathered skirt with pleats in the front and a gathered back. Kym’s currently working on a adult-size version for herself!

Our older girl is wearing the Oliver + S Garden Party Dress in Rosa in Navy (sadly sold out but it also comes in lovely Periwinkle and Peach!) with accents in Sprinkle in Anna Blue, the other new Cotton and Steel Basic designed to coordinate with Les Fleurs.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Oliver + S Garden Party Dress

There is something just so darling and old-fashioned about this little dress.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Oliver + S Garden Party Dress

Those little sleeves and button-back details are adorable!

Caroline made that colourful half-square triangle quilt! To make this playmat size, she used a fat eighth of every quilting cotton in the collection (there were 13) plus the new Basics and a mix of the coordinating Kona Cotton Solids.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Half Square Triangle Quilt

This packs a lot of colour and pattern, but I think it is so fun. We all have favourite squares.

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Half Square Triangle Quilt

And of course, Caroline’s signature paw print is on the back!

Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co Half Square Triangle Quilt

Finally, that garland! We have had paper flower making supplies in the shop for a couple of months and they are so fun to make. On Friday we took a little craft break in the shop and whipped up a few to use in a paper flower garland for this display. Seemed appropriate for a Les Fleurs window, right?

Paper Flower Making Supplies

Caroline took more supplies home and went wild playing with different styles. She used chopsticks for the stems on these! Don’t they look amazing?

Paper Flower Making Supplies

This peony style flower is my favourite. She didn’t use a template for this one – she just made it up! Once you figure out how the paper, glue, wire and tape work together, you can totally go freestyle and it pretty much always comes out gorgeous.

Paper Flower Making Supplies

So…any favourites from this window? Or do you love it all?

Our new Dapper Wovens window display!

When Dapper WovensLuke Haynes‘ collection for Moda, arrived in the shop, we just knew we wanted to show off these fabrics in a dedicated shop window display! They are so soft and pretty, and perfect for both garment sewing and quilts. You can see all of these projects in person at our West Hampstead shop.

Dapper Wovens window display at The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead, London

Caroline used a couple of Dapper Wovens charm packs and a few strips from the gingham yardage we have in the shop for this gorgeous quilt. It’s unbelievably cosy and I think a larger version would be so perfect for a little boy’s bed.

On our lady we have a Grainline Alder Shirtdress in Check is in the Mail in Wine Stain. This dress is mine, all mine, when it comes out of the window. I love it so much.

Grainline Alder Shirtdress in Dapper Wovens

I think this dress is the best in a check fabric but oh, man, there is a lot of pattern matching to be done here! Zoe sewed it for us and she did an amazing job, as usual.

Kym sewed up the most darling children’s outfits. They just are so smart, and yet with fabric this soft they’ll be comfy too!

Oliver + S Art Museum Vest in Manchester and Trousers in Dapper Wovens and Frida Dress in Dapper Wovens

Our little lady is looking very sophisticated in her Two Stitches Frida Dress, a quick, simple little dress with a lovely pleated neckline. The fabric is Check is in the Mail in Evening Asphalt. Watch your plaids on those pleats! Kym embellished this dress with a little knitted flower pin using Rico Essentials Merino DK in Petrol and Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran in Petrol.

Two Stitches Frida Dress in Dapper Wovens

Our little man is looking dapper indeed in an Oliver + S Art Museum Vest and Trousers set. The Trousers are sewn up in Check is in the Mail in Sky and Ocean and the vest is in Manchester in Blue. The shirt is an Oliver + S Sketchbook Shirt made a million years ago in a Cloud9 fabric that is long gone.

Oliver + S Art Museum Vest in Manchester and Trousers in Dapper Wovens

The vest is a much simplified version of the pattern, without the back belt or welt pockets. These details are so good, but rest assured if you want a quicker make and you leave off these elements, it will still look adorable. The lining and back of the vest are Kona Astral.

Oliver + S Sketchbook Shirt and Art Museum Vest

What do you think? Will you be making anything in Dapper Wovens?

Our new Mendocino shop window display!

It’s time to share our new West Hampstead shop window with you! This time we are showing off the lovely Mendocino reboot by Heather Ross for Windham. We mainly pulled out the blues and oranges, the “boy” colours, for this window to change things up and also show you how fun these colours look in sunny summer dresses for girls!

The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead - Mendocino shop window display

The star of the show is this beautiful quilt by our customer, Sara! Last week Sara shared a tutorial for these fun fish blocks so if you want to make this quilt, go check out that post!

Sara's Mendocino fish quilt

Caroline made this adorable bowtie using Seahorses in Orange. It’s a real bowtie, tied properly and everything! Absolutely charming. The shirt and shorts our little man are wearing have been featured loads of times before, so I’m just sharing the bowtie today.

Boy's bowtie in Mendocino by Heather Ross

Kym made this Geranium Dress in Large Octopus in Blue and it is darling! Already getting so many comments from our local customers. I know it’s hard to see this print in the shop, but this little dress really shows it off and Kym’s pattern placement is spot on! The patter is by Made by Rae.

Geranium Dress in Mendocino by Heather Ross

I took so many pics of this dress!

Those fluttery sleeves!

Kym did a clever cheat on these back buttons – they are really poppers and the buttons are just sewn on!

And the squid are perfectly placed on the pockets!

Zoe made this Sylvie Dress with Kelp Forest in Brown and it’s so fun and a little crazy! The waistband is Two Tone Tiny in Turquoise from Garden Secrets by Sarah Watson for Cloud9. I think I’ll get some wear out of this on a hot summer day or two! The pattern is by Christine Haynes.
