Rainbow Love

Sooo let’s talk rainbows…with Pride this weekend, summer sunshine and happy holidays it’s the ultimate month for colour!

We are OBSESSED with rainbows whether it’s a classic, monochrome or a tonal colour combination! We’ve got all the colours you need to make a rainbow at Happy Fabric. We’ve brought to you the most colourful and rainbow style projects that we have been creating over the past couple of months.

We have nine different projects that you could recreate at home using Happy Fabric vinyl and they are ideal for up-cycling old clothing, creating personalised gifts or designing your own accessories.

A free downloadable Pride artwork sheet is available which you could use as a stencil or use to cut your machine. Find it on our website here: https://www.happyfabric.co.uk/downloads/pride-artwork.html

Pennant flags are super easy to create by cutting triangles from felt. We hand cut our vinyl by drawing our lettering in reverse on the back and cutting this out with scissors. We think this would be perfect to add to your crafting room, children’s bedroom or for party decorations. Adding your own slogan has never looked so good!

Twinkly trainers are a must have and what better way to create them than with a handful of colour and sparkle. We have created hand cut rainbow and hole punched star trainers, which give them a jazzy, personalised touch. (Watch the vide here)

Our recent festival jacket (HERE) project was themed around Glastonbury and we went all out, using happy glitter colours that matched the Glastonbury logo. The best part is that you can transform a jacket into something that no one else will have.

Rainbow jumpers that you could create with your bestie are the most fun to design together. This is a creation we did with Louise and Jenny from Cutonepair who came in for a day full of fun crafts (MORE HERE). Their design came to life when we transformed their jumpers into a colourful rainbow with silhouette cut lettering on the front- ‘On Mondays we wear rainbows’. Louise and Jenny look so fab wearing these! How cute would this be to wear with your bestie?

Leopard print in bold colours with a touch of glitter transformed a laptop case into a case worthy of being a cute clutch bag. We created this with Jane from Tea and crafting who equally loves leopard print just as much as we do! (READ MORE). What colour leopard print would you create?

Colourful tops and rainbow pocket shorts are simple ways to add some colour in less than 30 minutes. An amazing way of creating instant shapes with happy glitter would be to take off the top layer of plastic and hole punch your glitter. It’s a great way to add small details to your textiles and it takes minutes.

Need some more inspiration? We have created a rainbow pinterest board full of all things colour. Check out our pinterest board below.

Don't forget the free downloadable Pride artwork sheet is available which you could use as a stencil or use to cut your machine. Find it on our website here: https://www.happyfabric.co.uk/downloads/pride-artwork.html
