Neontastic - true summer style!

The heat has not gone unnoticed this week and it's brought us right back to our child hood -  ice lollies, burnt shoulders and wearing bright colours, as much as is resonabley possible.

So this weeks theme is Neon. Because it's fun, on trend and you can use to it to accessorise your wardrobe.

And if your to busy drinking Pimms to get making,  how about these fab neon fabric paints: Grafitti art summer wear anyone?

Our first Fabric Friday!

We're planning a few new blog features for Ministry of Craft and since we spend so much time looking at fab fabrics, we've decided to make every Friday the day to share some of our favourites.

It might be themed, it might be random, but it will make us want to make, make, make! Feel free to share yours too.

Sew Be It 

There are lots of sewing inspired fabric out there, but these are our faves.

1. Red Rooster Vintage patterns designed by Amy Barickman  (

Perfect for a bold A line skirt!

2. Sewing cream by Anna Griffiths (

Pretty, simple and great for small projects due to a small pattern repeat.

3. Rulers by Riley Blake (

Bauhaus inspired with an  80's twist - great for bags and accessories
