What’s soft and sparkly, lightweight and luminous, beautiful and billowy? Metallic Embrace® Double Gauze from Shannon Fabrics! From wearables to home décor, Embrace® Double Gauze is a wonderful fabric with which to work. Did you see yesterday’s Ruffled Metallic Double Gauze Curtain Panel? It’s an easy project to makeover any window in your home. We really enjoyed working with the Metallic Embrace®, and … now it’s your turn. Our friends at Shannon Fabrics sent us FOUR 4-yard cuts of some of their most popular Metallic Embrace® motifs. Four lucky Sew4Home visitors will be “embracing” their creativity.
One very gorgeous fabric makes one very gorgeous curtain! One of the best ways to re-fresh a room is with new curtains. They can instantly transform any space and are the perfect building blocks for other transformations, such as pillows, cushions or linens. This dreamy ruffled panel is a look that could work well in any room. The drape and lightweight movement of the Shannon Fabrics Metallic Embrace® Double Gauze is perfect for a full-length panel – with just a hint of sparkle and shine. The construction is fast and easy, and we give you all the formulas you need to adapt the design for your windows.
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.
Is there a little girl in your life who needs a bit of party sparkle? Our sweet skirt features two layers of Embrace® Metallic Double Gauze from Shannon Fabrics. We include a chart for sizing from 7 to 14. The panels are all simple straight cuts so it’s easy to adjust to various shapes and sizes. The project goes together in a snap; make one or more in a single afternoon.
Double gauze is super soft, making it the top choice for layette swaddling blankets and other baby bundling. But it has lots of potential outside the nursery, especially when you apply a crinkling effect, sometimes called “contortion” pleating. We really like how this crinkling gives the double gauze an edgy, more modern feel. We’re working with Embrace Double Gauze from Shannon Fabrics, industry experts in all things soft. In particular, we selected one of their brand new Cotton Metallic Double Gauze options for a bit of extra holiday shimmer. We spotted a similar long scarf to ours at Barney’s selling for $270! Learn how easy it is to do it yourself – and create a look that’s unique to you and your wardrobe.
