Dashwood Studio Tour – Day 1 – Confetti Fabric Collection


The next few weeks are all about Dashwood Studio fabrics here at Prints to Polka Dots, we will be showcasing their most recent collections across the week and we are kicking our Dashwood tour off with the fresh and funky Confetti fabric collection.

Rachel Cave has designed a fun, bright & bold collection, focusing on every aspect of a flower, from the petals to the flower heads, including the leaves and even the seeds!  Many of the prints have a distinct 1950s feel and there is even one with a very 1970s feel!


We have a great range of mixers that work well with this collection too!

Dashwood Studio’s own Twist collection looks great and can be bought as part of a pre-cut bundle with the main collection, as well as separately.   We have select the Blush, White, Teal, Rose and Capri colourways to complement Confetti.



If you are looking for solid colours, we think Kona’s Grellow, Seafoam and Valentine bring warmth to this sunny collection.


We have made a short video to showcase these fab fabrics which we hope you find useful….

We are still perfecting filming and the quality of the film is best when not expanded to fill the whole screen when viewing on a laptop, PC or TV!

There are so many things you could make with this medium weight cotton collection, here are a few examples from around the web…

To kick us off, what about a lampshade!  These were made at a recent workshop here at Prints to Polka Dots, you can buy a kit instore and add a fabric of your choice, or book a place on a workshop and come and make one with us 🙂


This collection also looks gorgeous when made into children’s clothes….

These beautiful dresses and tops were made using Two Stitches patterns – available in store today at printstopolkadots.co.uk


Here are some skirts from Fairies, Bubbles & Co…


and what about a quilt?  We found this kit on Etsy!



This girl has it all!  A great bag, skirt, quilt and doll carrier all in Confetti!

The bag was made by @twirlgirlboutique you can find her on Instagram 🙂


And of course a round up of makes wouldn’t be complete without bunting!  This set was made by stores.ebay.co.uk/franklylinenUK and don’t forget, you can buy all our fabrics pre-cut into bunting triangles in store – saving you time and stress!


Next up here at Prints to Polka Dots we will be making an aline skirt for a yummy mummy with the funky 1970’s large floral print…
