William Morris and Laura’s Beau Fabric Craft Projects

2nd September 2018

We love crafting ourselves, perhaps you’ve seen some of our past projects, but we also love to see the wonderful things you create using our fabric! Here are a few of the latest crafts sent in by our fabulous customers. We always love seeing your projects so remember to tag us on social media or send us an email!

Jane made this hand pleated cushion and lavender filled bags using our Lavender fabric. Our Lavender design is a stunning design which is original to Laura’s Beau and one that’s really meaningful to us as it reminds us of drives through the English countryside and seeing fields of English lavender. Bring the stunning English countryside into your home with this light design; how wonderful does it look in cushions and in a little bag to put in your draw or wardrobe to scent your wardrobe.

Jane made this wonderful lampshade using our William Morris Brother Rabbit fabric. Such a great way to add a design into a room, it really adds a pop of colour into a room doesn’t it.

David made these William Morris Red Strawberry Thief curtains using 12 metres of heavy cotton fabric. Don’t they look wonderful on his window; the design really does look wonderful on big or small projects…

From big windows to small… Rebecca made these Strawberry Thief red curtains for her vintage caravan. Taking a while to restore their caravan, the curtains are really a pop of colour and bring the whole project together! They caravan is lovely and wherever they pull up for the night in the English countryside, we’re sure it will be a lovely view to wake up to after drawing their beautiful William Morris curtains.


David made this wonderful bed spread from William Morris Brother Rabbit; he said of the project, “I lined the bedspread with a cotton sheet in navy blue and backed the pillowcase with the same fabric. For the bedspread I made the backing 10″ wider to give a better drop  each side and it looks good with the contrast fabric. I now want to make curtains to match!!!” It looks wonderful David, we’re so glad you’re happy with your fabric!


Barbara made all these fabulous cushions from our William Morris Willow Bough fabric. She sent us a lovely email to tell us about her project, “I have been making curtains out of your Willow Bough Blue fabric for my daughter’s new flat and have made some cushions out of the left over fabric. I thought you might like to see some photographs of the cushions I have made.” We love the bow detail and the bottom duck detail!



Angela made this stunning bag from our William Morris Brother Rabbit fabric and wrote us a message to tell us about her project, “I thought you might like to see what I made with some of my half metre of William Morris’s red ‘Brother Rabbit’ cotton fabric that I bought from you in the spring.  I sent this to my granddaughter for her 17th birthday this month..  I am glad to say that she was thrilled with it and has taken it shopping a few times already. Now I have to make another one for my eldest granddaughter, who has her birthday in September. This time I bought the Golden Lily design from you, which I got in the post today.  I think your fabrics are excellent in quality and value.” Thanks for your message Angela, we’d love to see your Golden Lily bag too!
