Petite Fabric Haul July 2017 and Personalised Clothes Labels Review


hi guys and welcome to my channel. Thank you
so much for tuning in. So today’s post I’m going to try and rush through with it to make
it less than 5 minutes to share with you some customised labels that I bought and some fabrics
that I also bought. Its only four pieces of fabric so its not that much. I’ll dive straight
into it. OK. So I ordered some customised sewing labels
through The Dutch Label shop and I am so happy with these. received them over a month ago
but before I talked about them, I wanted to make sure that they, you know, worked really
well, that you could wash the garment and iron the garment, wash it and iron it again
and they were still holding up. And guess what they are!!! And they are just fantastic
quality and totally worth the money that I spent on them. I think it cost me in thend
something like £35 for 100 labels. Which erm….its not too bad but it could have been
cheaper if I had bought it in bulk. Here we go, I went for something very very
simple. A simple design. I am going to get in focus on this – right its a simple black
background with white lettering and I just went for my name and handmade cause they have
to know that it was handmade. Yeah its just really great quality. Designing it was very
easy. I just used canva.com which I will link down below and you can go onto Canva.com and
make a customised design, put in the dimensions that you want and you can play around with
colours and different fonts and all that. Its so much fun and then you save it as a
download and then when you go to the Labelshop.com then you upload your design. Or if you didn’t
want to do that they also have their own customisable templates on the website. Its quite limited
in terms of what fonts you can use but you can still make something really nice. I am
very happy, so happy and I have got a hundred of them so these will last me for quite some
time and they are fantastic. OK that does the Label shop review and now
I have got some fabric to share with you. OK. So……I will start off with this wonderful
polyester satin fabric that has got hydrangeas. I love hydrangeas – I’ve got a blue hydrangea
bush in my garden right now which is in bloom and it probably inspired me in buying this
fabric. I bought this from www.aliexpress.com so it came all the way from China. This is
the first time that I have ordered from AliExpress and the quality wasn’t too bad. I wasn’t expecting
something to be like this so I am quite happy about this. I don’t know yet what I will make
out of it but it will be fabulous. No.2 is this African wax print which I saw
on EBay. I just loved the purple and mustard on this fabric. I think that this is going
to make an absolutely outstanding skirt that I can wear in winter and fall with mustard
or purple tops. 6 yards for £20 including postage and packaging was not a bad deal at
all. And then I have another Instagram find. Gah!!
Curse you Instagram! I saw this on the Fabrics Galore feed and it is this beautiful drapey,
lightweight, quite floaty. Ooops hang on that’s the wrong side! It a rayon, a viscose challis
and I just love this, its got women and you can see them from the back. I think its going
to be beautiful and floaty and it will make a lovely By Hand London Anna dress with a
circle skirt so that its got the swish factor going for it. Its blue! I love blue! Ok and then Ohhhhhh I love this one! I got
another piece of fabric from Megan PidgeonWishes and I just going to show you so you can see
how fabulous it is. It Lemons! Guys! Lemons on a navy blue background. I love this fabric
– I cant tell you how much I love it. Look at that.. This is going to be an amazing
dress because I am going to use an amazing Marfy pattern. I’m not just going to use any
old pattern – I am going to go for Marfy patterns. And I will do a separate post to tell you
which pattern I am going to go with. I am hoping, hoping I can get this done by summer’s
end because I cannot wait to wear this because I love it so much. The other thing that I got from PidgeonWishes
Etsy shop are these iron on badges, iron on motifs. SO we have got a pink flamingo and
we have got a yellow pineapple. They are huge guys! I mean look at that – that’s to give
you perspective of how huge they are. And they are so beautiful. ANd you know what-
this flamingo matches my pink dress. Ok I will leave it there for now because I
have to rush off to a school fair right now and so until I see you again next time HAPPY
SEWING!!!!! And if you enjoyed the video then please give it a big thumbs up down below

Bye. ANd this is what I am wearing…….

  1. Hila – which website did you design your label on? I couldn't see a link – pam (sweetpeagreen)
    Lovely fabrics – really love the hydrangeas too ❤️

  2. can you link to the pattern web site you mentioned that you said your going to use for the lemon fabric please and nice fabrics

  3. Nice to see you gotten labels. That is a good company for labels, I've been using them for some time now. I just love mine. Love your fabric and cannot wait to see what you make of them. Have fun sewing, Later.

  4. There's also a "Dutch Label Shop" in the US. Located in Pennsylvania: www.dutchlabelshop.com. They make professional quality labels of several types, including fabric care and hang tags. They were featured by US YouTuber Jennifer Moore on "Sewing Report" which is usually live on Sundays. She bought labels from Dutch for some very pretty linen tea towels she sells. She also makes clothing, purses and quilts. Her husband sews too.

    Interested in seeing your Marfy pattern. Their designs are much better than Vogue's, especially the coats. I'm going to try the free Chanel-style jacket and skirt patterns on their website to see if the fit is worth the higher cost.

  5. How exciting! You selected some really super cute Fabrics! What a coincidence… I just received my clothing labels from Dutch label shop too! And I love them!

  6. That is on my list to get labels from them as well. You picked up some fun fabrics and I LOVE the dress you have on.

  7. You are so cute and I adore this dress you are wearing. That fabric and the lemons reminds me of Gertie's Fabric in the US. Thanks for the label advice I will look it up in the US.
