Fabric Friday: all the shiny things

Our feature fabrics this Friday are all the shiny, pretty metallic prints! Over the last year we've been tempted by quite a few fabrics with subtle sparkle and once we started hunting around the shop, we realised just how many we had. There are even a few more not featured here.

You can get your shiny fix at The Drapery on cotton double gauze, linen/cotton blends and pure linens. Just lovely for special garments and homewares with a touch of bling.

 Cotton + Steel 'Sparkle Canvas' linen/cotton
Clockwise from top:  Tsumiki 100% linen, gold stars on natural, Ellen Luckett Baker 'Charms' Posies on cotton double gauze, Cotton + Steel 'Sparkle Canvas' linen/cottonEllen Luckett Baker 'Charms' half-round, gold on natural
 Charms Posies (again), Nani Iro Jewel Song Pocho pink with gold dots on cotton double gauze, Nani Iro Clear Heart cotton double gauze in silvers and grey/blues.
 Nani Iro 'En Garden' cotton Double Gauze, with subtle sparkly purple birds.
Top to bottom: Ellen Luckett Baker for Kokka of Japan, 'Charms Plusdots' and 'Charms Bamboo' cotton double gauze.
Top to bottom: Charms Bamboo (again), Tsumiki linen gold stars on black, Tsumiki silver geometric on navy, Nani Iro Poppy Trip on cotton double gauze with subtle gold highlights.

Add some sparkle to your wardrobe and home... it'll make you smile!
