Structured & Divided Fabric Basket

Monday, 05 June 2017 1:00

Divide and conquer! When it comes to organizing your stuff, it’s one of the best ways to tackle the mess and contain the chaos. We created one of our famous fabric baskets, then added some extras we’ve never offered before in one storage solution: both inner and outer pockets, double carry handles, and a removable center divider. It’s a great caddy for the car, as we’ve shown in several of our photos, or customize it for any room in the house. 

Retro Half Apron with Matching Hot Pads

Thursday, 01 June 2017 1:00

This is the perfect kitchen gift set. There’s an adorable half apron with two matching hot pads. Bundle up the trio with a set of your favorite recipes and a few kitchen utensils to create a handmade-from-the-heart gift basket. As you can probably tell by the cool props in our photos, we're collectors of vintage kitchen goodies, so we recommend a bold retro print to capture our same vintage vibe, and we offer several brand new fabric combos below.

Measuring Tape Neck Strap Sewing Caddy

Wednesday, 31 May 2017 1:00

How many of you loop a tape measure around your neck while you’re sewing? I’m pretty sure there are a lot of hands up out there! This cute little caddy is designed to capitalize on that habit by turning the measuring tape into its own mini caddy with scissors on one end and a pincushion on the other. All the basics will be close at hand. Wouldn’t this make a great gift for all your sewing pals?! 

Coffee Cup Cozies in Three Styles

Friday, 26 May 2017 5:05

Paper and cardboard wraps certainly do their job; they keep your hand protected from the very hot – or this time of year, the very cold contents of the cup. But… are they cute and clever? Are they a green alternative? We think not! Make your own Cup Cozies, using our free patterns and easy instructions. We offer three unique wrap options: snaps, lace-up eyelets, and elastic; and each pattern is sized and shaped for its signature closure. 

Boho Bandanas - 8 Ways to Wear

Thursday, 25 May 2017 1:00

According to style watchers, one of the season's must-have accessories is the bandana. It’s featured regularly as a head scarf but is just as popular tied around the neck, the wrist, and even onto bags and totes. And here’s the latest fashion flash: you don’t have to use traditional bandana fabric. In fact, many sites and magazines are showing all kinds of patterns and colors. Excellent! We used the vibrant Joie de Vivre collection by Bari J for Art Gallery Fabrics.

Crossbody Zippered Pouch with Tassel Accent

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 1:00

Made to match our Elastic Waist Boho Short Skirt, this classic little zippered pouch can just as easily stand on its own as an everyday mini bag. We used a pretty modern batik for the exterior fabric, but you need just a small fabric cut, so you may already have something in your stash that would be just the ticket. The long braided yarn straps are secured with simple side loop channels. And a triple tier tassel adds a fun finish as the zipper pull. 

Extra-Large Laundry Bins

Tuesday, 23 May 2017 1:00

These jumbo fabric baskets are so big and beautiful, they'll make sorting laundry fun! Well... if not actually fun, at least functional. And, they look great doing their job. Sparkling iron-on letters down one side let you know which items should go into the wash and which are headed to the dry cleaner. We used a combination of three striking Waverly home décor weight fabrics for our two bins. 

Elastic Waist Boho Short Skirt: Dritz Woven Jacquard Elastic

Monday, 22 May 2017 1:00

It’s nudging towards summer, which means it’s time to show a little leg! We have a flirty little fast and easy skirt that’s perfect for strolling in the summer sun. It features the new Dritz® Woven Jacquard Elastics. Over the last few years, elastic options have really exploded, but these 1” and 2” wide varieties from Dritz® are the prettiest yet! So much so, we created a unique construction for the top of the skirt that allows the waistband to be fully exposed while keeping the fabric finished on all sides with a minimum of layering. Read on to get all the details.

Quilted Toaster Cover

Thursday, 18 May 2017 1:00

One appliance that gets almost daily use in most kitchens is the trusty toaster. With all that hard work, it usually ends up looking a bit worse-for-wear. Maybe it's banged up around the edges, for sure there are crumbs aplenty, perhaps there's a small scorched area from the Raisin Bread Affair of 2016. All in all, it probably isn't the prettiest member of the kitchen appliance family. Keep it accessible yet under wraps with our quilted toaster cover. Our clever cozy features a pretty patchwork accent strip, bright piping all around, and an easy-tie handle so it's fast to whip off or drop back on. Now you see it... now you don't! 

Uptown Pillow Trio: 9-Patch and Triangle Squares with Flange Accents

Wednesday, 17 May 2017 1:00

Is your sofa looking at you with big, sad eyes? Well, of course not; it’s a sofa not a cartoon! But, maybe – just maybe, when you’re falling asleep, do you hear it softly crying? If your sofa seems down in the dumps, the solution is as quick and easy as a new set of pillows. There’s nothing like a blast of beautiful fabric to make your whole room (and you) happy. We spied the Figment collection by Pam Goecke Dinndorf of Aardvark Quilts for Robert Kaufman Fabrics and knew it would make an awesome pile of pillows. The motifs are bold and whimsical and the colors are stepped-down brights: gorgeous and saturated yet slighted muted so there’s no harsh edges to any of the tones.
