Spring break is next week! If you’re anything like me, you may find yourself walking a tightrope of wanting to take advantage of your child’s time away from school and play….and needing to get work done still. So, I’ve gathered a few books together that could help with both of those things. The books offer activities for a range of ages and skills. Some of the projects will involve the help of an older person, while others are geared to guide the young creator through the project on their own. All are chock full of fun, creative ideas!
These books can also be a great way for the young crafters in your life to make gifts for their friends for birthdays, holidays, start to summer vacation…any ol’ reason.
This next book is a beautiful book for grown ups too. It provides instruction on a handful of different printing techniques. Some are so simple you and your young ones can make up your own custom spring break 2015 t-shirts in an afternoon. Or, take on a more involved project like stamping a tablecloth. Fun!
See you soon!
Adrianna has been quite the busy bee with all our new samples! I love these color block pouches made with Moda’s cotton/linen Mochi dot and our new brightly colored brass zippers! The large one is the perfect size for makeup or an evening clutch and the small one will fit your rouge and license for a dancing date night when you only need to carry essentials. We a have beautiful selection of dots and zippers right now so visit soon and stay tuned for some more of Adrianna’s beautiful samples!
Lots and lots of fabrics have recently arrived, including the entire line from Skinny laMinx for Cloud 9 Fabrics. So, all organic cotton, both medium weight and canvas. Yippy. Great prints, great colors. Loving that grass green!
Fabulous new line from Urban Chicks for Moda, “Nomad.” More from Moda:
Very well done city map prints!
Some more whimsy from Tula Pink:
Lastly, we started to receive some great vintage inspired cotton lawns from Kaufman (didn’t make it into the photos) and some really neat new cottons, linens, and blends from Kaufman. A gauzey linen (below), a sturdy cotton linen canvas with a rustic look, and a really nice indigo linen. And, that well-loved chambray with the little colored speckles is back!
Happy spring sewing!
