Stylish Patterns for new Moms!

Being pregnant brings all sorts of joy and excitement to families, and it is such a pleasure to help our customers pick out materials and patterns to make crafts, quilts, and other fun projects to welcome the new little one. Although it can be quite exhilarating to nest your space and focus on projects for the new baby, it is also important to take care of yourself momma! It can be difficult to find functional and stylish maternity clothes, and in this day and age you all deserve to look good while expecting, and after. We have some great patterns and a lovely book by Anna Maria Horner to help you out new Mom; after all, you are doing all the work!

This book by Anna Maria Horner has great projects for during pregnancy and once baby is here. Most of these clothing patterns can be adjusted for your growing belly, and after the baby is born.

Jalie also has some fantastic and functional patterns for when you are nursing. Check out the Nursing Tee by them, and the sample we have in the store! This top is super cute, simple, and very easy to make. The additional front panel makes nursing easy and comfortable. Also pair it with another Jalie pattern, Bra and Camisole, which has a nursing bra version.

Just In: Unicorns and elephants

by Gina

A smattering of new goodies from the past week or so:

canvas, cotton-linen and mid-weight cotton prints from Japan

An array of denims, varying in color, weight and content. And a super sweet elephant double gauze. Yep, they’ve got red shoes.

Silky soft cotton voile from Art Gallery:

More of Art Gallery’s silky soft hand, but in their mid-weight cotton prints:

And one of our most delightful arrivals is surely the hand spun, hand woven khadi cloth from Women Weave in India. You can see some shots on Instagram here. We will do a more thorough feature on these beauties soon. In the meantime, come and get acquainted with them!
