Cabbages & Roses scrumdidlyumptious fabrics.

What can I say.  This fabric is simply stunning and works fabulously with my mannequins.  It's called Paris Rose and is made by Cabbages & Roses.  It's almost like a paper print.  I've named her Paris and you can see more photos of her here.  There is a raspberry version too...good enough to eat!
Another C&R beauty called Constance.  A very delicate delphinium shade on a creamy white linen.  You can see more of Connie here.

I have to mention another fab little company called Saints & Pinners.  They sell wonderful fabrics for quilters (and mannequin makers!).  I ordered this fabric yesterday and it arrived this morning beautifully packaged.  I do love it when people take the time over packaging so many thanks Jo and Fran. 

I only wish my mannequins were as easy to pack.  They are so large that most packaging ideas I have just don't work.  I've worked on making my packing pretty as I feel it is important (after getting them there in one piece) but I'm still not happy with it.  How do you feel about packaging?  Is it important to you?  Do you expect a large item to be packed beautifully too? If you have any suggestions on packing a large item I would love to hear about it.
Enjoy the sunshine, Lucyxx

Ooh the raspberry version is lovely!
I have always wondered how you pack your mannequins, can you pull it apart or do you have to send it in one piece? Nice pretty packaging is always lovely but as long as the items get to me safely I'm not too bothered to be honest!

Lovely mannequins Lucy, and the fabric is to die for. I do agree with you about packaging. When a parcel is wrapped with ribbon and tissue paper it is like getting a present. There are some things though that are very hard to package - I have just sold a dolls house and it was a nightmare to pack!! The room is a couple of weeks away from being finished - will take pics when it is done with the mirror in situ. I can't wait to start putting all my bits and bobs into the room.

I, too love luxurious packaging with tissue, ribbons and had crafted tags. I must say though that my Zoe mannequin arriving in that lovely Toblerone shaped box was a thrill in itself and then having to wait until Christmas Day to open the box. What a wait - your gorgeous mannequins are so beautiful that this is enough.
