Entries in holiday fabric (3)
A twist on those paper snowflakes we made when we were small. You remember, the ones that our mothers Scotch taped in the window.
-2 different fabrics cut to any size as long as it’s square
-Heat n Bond cut .5” smaller on all sides, this way it doesn’t transer on your iron.
There’s an easier way to use Heat n Bond than the directions explain. Cut it to size.
Peel the glue away from the paper.
Place the Heat n Bond between the two fabrics with the wrong sides together.
Press. I like to use a press cloth just to be sure glue doesn’t get on my iron.
Cut all around except for the folded tip. If you cut this, everything will fall apart. Now unfold it and see how it looks!
We have some lovely metallic prints in that would be perfect for these holiday snowflakes! Come by soon!
I’ve tried things a little different this year. I’ve ordered recognizably holiday prints. In years past we’ve assembled (many thanks, April!) a little selection of what could pass as holiday prints for those of you who’ve asked for them. Well, this year, you won’t have to use your imagination and our suggesting, quite so much. We’ve cut fat quarters of all of them for quick holiday napkin kits. There are more general wintery-themed blue, green, white prints, like above as well as the vintage-inspired red and green Dear Mr. Claus line by Cosmo Cricket for Moda, below. We even have a free (with purchase of some of the fabric) quilt pattern designed specifically for this group!
I can’t believe it’s already November! We are getting our holiday schedule all buttoned up and will be sure to keep you informed. For November, we will be closed for Thanksgiving and the Friday after. We have a tradition of taking that Friday for ourselves and families and hope you’re able to as well! We’ll be well rested and ready to help with all those holiday gift making projects of yours on Saturday the 24th!
Hi there! First, I need to say a big thank you to all of you who came out for our bi-annual sale! As is usually the case, we have a lot of things left over that are still discounted (a whole slew of things at 40% and 50% off!) and the remnant bins are overflowing. I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from the Just In posts as we geared up for the sale, but we’re back with all sorts of fantastic new apparel goods and quilting weight cottons.
Let’s get started with some new wool!
We’ve really grown our wool selection this year and I’m super excited about it. Not only do we have a great selection of heavier, coat and skirt weight wools, but we have some gorgeous wool voiles and other fine, lighter weight wool with more drape. Gorgeous! Here’s a peek at some of the heavier weight pieces.
(As I was leaving the store yesterday, I opened a package with a couple more beautiful wools and other wonderful wintery apparel fabrics….stay tuned for more or better yet, come in soon and see them in person!)
After the sale we were excited to put out the newest arrivals in the cotton department. These smart green and blue prints from Dear Stella’s Ikebana line. The two pieces at the top are part of the Seven Wonders line by Parson Gray (aka David Butler) for Free Spirit Fabrics. We have more from this classy group in both the blue/greys and the rich orange colors as well.
This year I tried something a little different and ordered some holiday fabrics. Yep, it’s true. We’ve started to move some out onto the floor and will continue to do so over the coming weeks. If you’re looking for more than you see, just ask. Here’s a sneek peek of one of the groups.
We also just receive a slew of books, some new to the store, some old favs. I’ll fill you in on that in the next day or two.
See you soon!
