Entries in Robert Kaufman (26)
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!
Some interesting things came through the door this past week. And, some equally as welcomed basics too!
Let’s start with the basics. We’re restocked with that great hemp/ organic cotton heavy weight stripe in indigo, red and brown. You can see the indigo version used in this great looking tote by Hannah. (It’s the widest stripe.) We also just got in a super cozy collection of solid flannels:
Our inventory is typically quite colorful and contemporary. That doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a more subdue palette of William Morris reproductions:
And, some of Carolyn Friedlander’s new great group, Doe (top two prints are not part of the group):
These sweetly colored prints from Moda say Spring, for sure. Including the raindrops that usually mean spring around here:
We are very happy to get back in these gorgeous, unique, traditional African mud cloths:A shipment of trims arrived yesterday, including knit foldover trim, some super festive, sparkly ribbon and sweet, little polka dot, ruffle elastic.
Are you ready for some spring sewing? Come and see us, we’ll be sure you are!
Here’s my first project from Vanessa Mooncie’s “Sew Adorable”. I told you all how many projects I found worthwhile in this classic book and now I’ll be making making what I love best. Stay tuned! This little linen aviator is exactly what I was looking to make for my son. The size run is 1-3 years. My sweet little model is 5 and it fits her perfectly so I’ll be subtracting an inch or two away from this pattern so it fits my babe. For this hat I used Robert Kaufman’s waterford linen and Michael Miller’s organic cotton sherpa. See you soon at the shop!
