Thank you so much for all the help. The fabric is fab and I definitely will give that pattern a try.

Unicorns are very popular here alright. I've made her a few things to wear with some cotton I got a few years ago when I did a lot of quilting and she has a few bits bough in the shop as well.

It was a kids pattern but I made a burda paper pattern last week and it was fine. I would change a few of the instructions and did do those steps my own way but that was personal preference in my case.

I was looking at these in the books tonight at class and there are so many lovely things for the next season. In particular there are some really nice plus patterns and the kids stuff is just fab.

I like the Stoff and Still Jersey and they always have some cool patterns but they're a bit dearer. I will follow with interest as I would love to see more patterned stuff.

The only other place I can think of that I've picked up cheap patterned jersey is Goldhawk road so not sure if you have a market or something like that maybe near you.

What sort of price range would you consider cheap?

They're fab and I really love the stitches on the top of the first one.

Yeah I'm very tempted but I still have some I haven't made out of my last splurge!

I know here the postman won't hand over your items unless you pay at the door and there is a handling fee charged by An Post (Irish postal service). I you can't pay at the door (they only take cash here) you can just pop down to the sorting office and collect it from there with the money.

Do they have a Uk website? I think as their codes are always for purchases through their website rather than from resellers there's no difference in policy between the countries. I presume if you went into a fabric shop in the USA that carried their patterns there would be no discount either and the only way to use the coupon is on the website. The same way if say a Tilly and the Buttons pattern was on sale via Tilly's website there would be no requirement for a shop selling Tilly patterns to honour it.
