Cozy Fleece Body Pillow

Thursday, 14 December 2017 1:00

What does a throw pillow want to be when it grows up? Probably a super soft body pillow that offers four and a half feet of huggability. These tall pillows are popular for crashing on the family room floor, relaxing (I mean studying) in a dorm room, and are well known for providing sleep support for pregnant moms. We loved the blanket style fleece patterns that are available now in super cozy fleece. They have a similar style to the famous Pendleton® wool blankets... but for a fraction of the price. Deep fringe at either end adds to the "lodge look."

Scented Spa Gift Set in Soft Cuddle Fleece: Fabric Depot

Monday, 11 December 2017 1:00

Give the gift of relaxation with our scented spa set. All three pieces are made out of super soft Cuddle Dimple, Cuddle Three, and Velvet Cuddle. There’s a neck wrap to pull the stress from your shoulders, an eye pillow to soothe and calm, and a pretty headband to gently sweep your hair up and away in order to easily rest the neck wrap and eye pillow in place. We got the idea for making the set in luxury fleece from our friends at Fabric Depot. They alerted us to a very large shipment of Cuddle that has just arrived from Shannon Fabrics: prints, solids, textures, and more. Let's all say it together: ahhhhhhhhh ..... spaaaaaaaaaaa.

Fast Gift Wrap Sleeves in Felt & Cotton

Thursday, 07 December 2017 1:00

Slice, stitch, tie, give. Just four steps to fast and festive (and reusable!) gift wrap solutions in wool felt with cotton accents. Pretty bows and belts keep things wrapped up tight. We planned three different sizes and styles from glamorous to whimsical to guy-friendly. Each is designed to be saved and used again as gift wrap, or in the case of the All Felt with Belt Closure & Boxed Bottom option, to be used as an every day accessory to carry papers, small devices and more – perhaps as a cool "drop in" folder for a larger briefcase. 

Gumdrop Pillows in Colorful Candy Shag: Shannon Fabrics Faux Fur

Monday, 04 December 2017 1:00

The weather is getting dreary, and the world outside seems to be nothing but varying shades of gloom. Now is the very best time for a color infusion! Our eye popping Gumdrop Pillows are created in multiple colors of Candy Shag Faux Fur from Shannon Fabrics. The luxuriously long nap of the Candy Shag starts as pure white at the base finishing with brilliant candy colors at the tips. As the nap shifts, so does the color, flashing from white to bright and back again. If I had the guts, I think I’d try this technique on my own hair.

Luxury Faux Fur Collar Wrap: Fabric Depot

Friday, 01 December 2017 1:00

Fashion in a flash. Fur collars are a gorgeous way to update a winter coat, adding an instant overlay of luxury. Our fabric choices were inspired by the sumptuous faux fur selection at Fabric Depot. We selected the look of natural fur, which has a beautiful depth of tone as well as a smooth and deep pile. But you could also walk on the whimsical side with varieties in fanciful colors, curly shags, and more. We offer a number of combination suggestions below. 

Box Style Zippered Cosmetics & Toiletries Case

Thursday, 30 November 2017 1:00

We love travel size toiletries. I think this may date back to those long-ago days playing with Barbie® dolls and trolls. Everything was so little and cute. In fact, most things are more adorable in a mini size: people, puppies, muffins... and little bottles of shampoo, deodorant, and lotion. At approximately 7½” x 4” x 3½”, our cosmetics and toiletries bag is smaller than a standard dopp kit, but is still the perfect size to fit all those tiny bottles and jars and more, while tucking neatly inside your luggage. It’s a “mighty mini”! 

Quilted Travel Duffle with Rolling Case Sleeve: Dritz Hardware

Monday, 27 November 2017 1:00

On-the-go just got a whole lot prettier! This beautiful duffle is made for travel. Pack it on its own or use the sleeve on the back to slip it over the handle of a rolling suitcase. We selected Dritz® hardware to pull it all together, allowing the design to include carry handles as well as a fully adjustable and detachable shoulder strap. Plus, a magnetic snap keeps the generous front pocket closed.

Lumbar Pillow with Hand Stitched Accents

Tuesday, 21 November 2017 1:00

We love sewing by machine! It's fast, it's easy, and when you have great machines like the Janome models in our S4H studios, it's almost effortless. But it doesn't mean you can't whip out the hand needle and thread now and then. A few well-placed hand-stitched accents add a unique decorative touch. Today's lovely lumbar pillow features rows of simple running stitches in three coordinating colors of embroidery floss. 

Modern Two Tone Tote with Tandy Leather Accents: Fabric Depot

Monday, 20 November 2017 1:00

Light to dark, yin to yang, night to day – they say opposites attract, and that is at the core of this gorgeous two-tone tote. The striking contrast gives the project a modern look with a sleek simplicity that sets off the real leather handles, a focal point of the bag. Specialty products, like leather and the tools for working with it, has usually meant a separate stop on your shopping adventure. We’re excited to let you know that our friends at Fabric Depot are now offering a selection of Tandy Leather products online.
