Altenew Dreamy Bouquet Fabric Release BlogHop + Giveaway

February 17, 2022 at 2:00 pm 25 comments

Hello lovely friends- it’s time for something new…and totally new; Altenew are now doing FABRIC!! A big welcome if you’ve arrived from the lovely Terri Koszler’s blog. If you want to start at the beginning- please visit the Altenew Card Blog and then you can hop around everyone’s wonderful blogs.

( All the following links are Affiliate onesthankyou!)

Altenew do so many different types of products but fabric is a first for them. However- it’ll come as no surprise that their signature beautiful designs are in evidence in this special Fat Quarter pack. If you’re wondering what a Fat Quarter is, it’s simply a Yard cut into 4- so each ‘quarter’ measures around 18”x 22” and there are SO many things you can make with them. These are beautiful cotton fabrics- so there’s tonnes you can make with them.

Dreamy Bouquet Fabric Fat Quarter Collection

This collection is called Dreamy Bouquet and as I appreciate that not everyone sews ( or wants to sew) I’ve created a ‘no-sew’, ‘low-sew’ and ‘sew’ set of projects; hopefully catering for everyone. For those of you who simply want to stroke the fabric…of course you can do that too 😂.

The sew one first…

A really simple drawstring shape- but I’ve cut out small squares…

Sewed them back together again and then made a drawstring pouch.

I love how it shows all the different patterns off in one go! But maybe sewing isn’t really a passion of yours but you don’t mind doing a little? Here’s the second one incorporating a little hand sewing.

You can die cut fabric- particularly easily when you add an interfacing to it…which is simply an iron on ‘stiffener’. I use Vlieseline interfacings and it also means that the circles won’t fray after you’ve die cut them. Such a simple design and using the ‘Hello & Hugs’ die set too. I just added a few hand sewn running stitches around 2 circles to give it a little more texture. Before I show you the third project, I’ll tell you about the…


There is $300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 02/23/2022 for a chance to win.

Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 02/25/2022.

For my ‘no-sew’ project- it’s just using strips of the fabric, mounted onto card and used as a textural background.

Don’t worry about any stray really adds to the character of the card. Just trim out pieces of fabric similar widths, overlap them and adhere them to a piece of cardstock. You can use thin amounts of fabric glue, double sided tape or a piece of adhesive sheet. Then die cut a circle from white and blue card, layer them together and mount onto the fabric piece using foam pads.

I’ve used the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die set but in pink to tie the colours together- but the card was made pretty quickly.

I hope this has given you a taster of what you might do with this beautiful Dreamy Bouquet Fat Quarter Collection– but don’t hang around, I can’t see it hanging around in store for long!

Before I go, I’ve added the list of everyone taking part, but the next person on the hop is the wonderful Norine Borys.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the fabric in different ways, and I know you’ll love trying it out too! Thanks for visiting me today,

Keren x

    Nice project ideas. I like the drawstring bag. Nice ideas for the cards as well. I wasn’t sure I could use fabric for my crafting, so it’s great to have the ideas.
