  1. The new range is absolutely gorgeous, so many ideas running through my head but I think the first thing I would make would be a ruffle layered vintage look skirt for some little girls I know :)

  2. Oh wow..what a beautiful fabric range. I believe the HOPE COVE BIRD TOILE BLUE ROBYN PANDOLPH would make the most exquisite skirt for a little girl..teamed up with HOPE COVE BLENDER BLUE ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT as a waist tie or bow..just beautiful

  3. This range of fabric is just beautiful, I have been wanting to get the pillowcase dress pattern tutorial you have, I can just see this made in the HOPE COVE MAIN ROSE PINK ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC.... even if I dont win, I know what my next purchase will be :-)

  7. Beautiful fabric!!!! I'd love to make anything from Pink Fig patterns, particularly Vintage Jane for my daughter. Anything ruffled or layered would look gorgeous!! I'd probably make matching cabbage patch doll outfit and definitely matching hairclips.

  9. So pretty!! My favourite are:
    HOPE COVE ROSE CLUSTER CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC,
    HOPE COVE MAIN ROSE CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC, and;
    HOPE COVE FLORAL BLENDER GREEN ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC.
    Would make a vintage apron for my daughter who loves to help in the kitchen! Beautiful range :)

  10. This fabric lends itself perfectly to a dress or skirt - especially love the pink / mint combination - with a matching pair of soft shoes. Little Bird's fat quarter twirly skirt might fit the bill!

    ReplyDelete
  11. How about a table runner/topper? ..think I would just use all the soft blues!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would live to make a shabby chic cushion with hand appliqué. To go with my country house. I'm loving this fabric. Very romantic indeed. Lindsey

  13. I would make a Ruffled bubble romper using HOPE COVE MAIN ROSE GREEN ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC as the main fabric and HOPE COVE MINI ROSE CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC for the ruffles. I would make the romper for my 18 month old niece, she has porcelain skin and would look a real vintage beauty in this fabric range

  17. Another gorgeous fabric range Louise!!...At first sight I could see a delightful french, shabby chic "tea party" with cloth placemats, napkin rings, napkins, bunting, tablecloth & food cover &......so much more!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. At last a fabulous range that I can make 'old fashioned' aprons in for elderly friends and rellies. The Hope Cove Toile Green Shabby teamed with the Green blender would make a delightfully frilly vintage style apron. Can't wait to start.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Exicting love challenges! And I also lurve all the pinks and greens in the new HOPE COVE by Robyn Pandolph range - would love to make my Mum a very chic handbag or tote for everyday use! And maybe even one for myself :-)

  20. So pretty! The thing that sprang to my mind was a little girls' nightie made from Hope Cove mini rose pink - it would be sooo cute and a little bit retro :-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Main Rose Blue
    Rose Cluster Sage
    Floral Blender Pink
    Mini Rose Cream
    ....All to make the "Flipsy" reversable skirt by Make it Perfect

  22. These fabrics would make a beautiful quilt but if I won there is no way I could manage to finish that in 2 weeks so the other thing I think they would be perfect for would be a lovely bag , maybe a gorgeous weekender especially for an indulgent girls weekend away.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would use a combination of the Hope Cove fabrics to make some soft toys to be donated to the Mirabel Foundation, a children's charity.

  24. These colours are my absolute favorites, I cannot wait to make my grand daughter a crossover pinafore and matching ruffle bum panties to match.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The fabric is just beautiful!! I would create a beautiful nappy bag and matching nappy clutch plus change mat . Perfect accessories for mums and bubs to be seen with :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Spots and Dots are so cool!! I'd like to see something from me. I make funky bats and could turn 1 from a fat lol (fat quarter that is)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm seeing this fabric range adding a touch of vintage flair to my current collection of sweet summery frills dresses with frilly ruffle hems.

    Main Dress - HOPE COVE MAIN ROSE CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC

    Neckline Frill & frilly ruffle hem - HOPE COVE ROSE CLUSTER CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC

    Pocket for collecting little treasures - HOPE COVE MINI ROSE CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC (with added button and ribbon).

    *sighs* this combination sounds heavenly, Mel xox

  29. I would love to make one of the Claire's Pillowcase Dresses by Create Kids Couture. I think these fabrics would look divine as a patchwork dress!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a lovely collection. I can see it in a ruffled skirt using the rose cluster blue and mini rose in pink. I would make some shabby roses to add to a t-shirt for embelishments to make a little set
    I can also see some in a simple pillow case dress with lots of lace

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a gorgeous collection of fabrics ! They would be absolutely perfect for my range of 'skipping girls' - handmade skipping ropes and matching bags, which are done in a shabby chic style ! Just love, love, this range !

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd love to spoil myself with this and make an iPad cover (heading back to uni this year as a mature student doing Honours)...but I know as soon as my daughters see the beautiful flowers they will definitely request some ballerina dresses!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would LOVE to use HOPE COVE FLORAL BLENDER BLUE to make my daughter a beautiful birthday dress with the LITTLE BIRD RETRO FABRIC PATTERN AUDREY DRESS :)

  34. Simply gorgeous fabric!! I would love to make Gail Pan's Avonleigh quilt from it, and it would even be a nice quick program easily done in 2 weeks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. This new range is divine!!! I would love to make a medallion quilt from this, but in 2 weeks could make a gorgeous shaggy quilt instead. This range would also be gorgeous for a sewing room accessories makeover, sewing machine mat, machine cover, pincushion and inspiration board :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is devine <3 Just today I was dreaming of fabrics like this to sew with! I'd love to make a pair of pouffy cuffed shorts in HOPE COVE MAIN ROSE PINK with big bow tie belt in HOPE COVE ROSE CLUSTER GREEN for my little girl.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gorgeous!!!! This fabric range just cries out to be made into a Cinderberry or Natalie Ross Sewing Bag with accessories.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can see this range being used to make a block quilt (sounds ordinary but looks great with 2 different fabrics) with the edges being dolled up with prayer points to give it the edge. Its the type of fabric you want to show the whole print off.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh i just love this range!!! So many beautiful things i would make!!

    ReplyDelete

  54. I would love to use this very feminine fabric to make a dress for my 9 month old daughter using the HOPE COVE ROSE CLUSTER CREAM with the HOPE COVE MINI ROSE BLUE as the contrasting fabric for the ruffles, sleeves and belt like the Amelia Dress!

    ReplyDelete
  55. OMG Lou!!! This range is soooo dreamy :)
    I can see the 'Hope Cove Toille in Green, Blue or Pink Shabby' as a Fabulous Tote Bag ~ how perfect for uni!

    Love it all!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The first thing I'd love to make would be a little ruffled sunsuit with matching hat from one of my vintage patterns. The second thing I'd love to use the fabric for is to recover or recreate my pram! Currently it is a boring brown. I would love to make it unique and girly for my 6week old daughter - and then love to go down to the park and show off to the other mums!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The small rose prints would be ideal for the current project idea of making the Sugar Plum Fairy from FFF.

    Any of the rose prints would be ideal, using the co-ordinating blenders for the ballet slippers and the shabby spots for the wings. Add a tulle skirt and a pretty fairy to deling hearts young and old.
    Can't wait to get started! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh what a gorgeous range! I love the girly vintage-ness of it - so inspiring. My absolute favourite print is the Rose Cluster Blue! It would make a beautiful baby girl quilt or dress :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. The Main Rose in Pink combined with the pink spots would make adorable spring dresses - and of course a matching softie with the scraps (minimal waste here!)

    ReplyDelete
  60. My Grandma has just moved into permanent care in a small country hospital and this is the material I've been searching for a quilt to make her room look a little more homely, (with the HOPE COVE BIRD TOILE CREAM as the focal point). Of course with my limited sewing knowledge I'd say it would be more like a lap quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  61. HOPE COVE ROSE CLUSTER CREAM ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC

    teamed with

    HOPE COVE MINI ROSE PINK ROBYN PANDOLPH QUILT CRAFT FABRIC

    To make the girliest of girly Melly and Me overnight bags.

    Of course I would also need to make pjs to match then....

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would love to make the Hippy Chick skirt by Pink Fig for my niece, with a selection of the fabrics. It would be a great easy project as I get more into sewing

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lovin this fabric, lots of ideas, my new project at the moment is Rag Quilt Bag, so I think I could make a gorgeous bag from this range.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow that is just stunning! It screams ruffles at me so I would make a vintage inspired ruffle bag!

    ReplyDelete
  65. The new range is divine. What an exciting challenge - I'm here for the challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think a really gorgeous shabby quilt would look beautiful in a combination of this material.

    But I don't think that is achievable in two weeks. I think a gorgeous patchwork shabby or vintage looking peasant dress would be beautiful!

  67. Twirly Twirly how wonderful would the SHAYLENE RUFFLED TWIRL SKIRT look in the fabrics - that is what i would love to make

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ooh easy peasy :) I would use the Hope Cove Bird Toile Blue (Robyn Pandolph Quilt Craft Fabric) & Hope Cove Bird Cream (Robyn Pandolph Quilt Craft Fabric) to make the "Pocket Pal Wallet" by Jenna Lou (PDF pattern).

    ReplyDelete
  69. i think the new range would make an amazing vintage type jacket with a sash and frill at the bottome :)

  70. Trying to comment for the third time without my children interrupting :/ I would love to use a combination of these fabrics to make the CKC Kikis extra ruffled top!! This fabric just screams ruffles to me :)

  71. I just purchased the Action Pants pattern.. and I can so see myself wearing a variety of the cute ruffled knickers in all of these fabrics.. I wouldn't need anything else.
