Sew Soft Cuddle® Strip Blankets: Shannon Fabrics

Monday, 08 October 2018 3:00

Strip piecing is a fast and easy mainstay in the quilting cotton world, and it has become just as popular for other substates. We’ve used the technique for these bundle-y Cuddle® blankets. But rather than using only one-directional strips, we added our own S4H spin by mixing horizontal insets within the main vertical strips. Then, because Shannon Fabrics Cuddle comes in so many colors, textures, and naps, we kicked up the concept another notch by combining smooth and embossed Cuddle® fabrics so the blankets have a unique mixture of textures that make them extra cozy.

Sweet, Soft, Stuffable Bunnies: Shannon Fabrics Cuddle & Luxe Cuddle

Monday, 20 August 2018 1:00

“Be veeeerrrrrryyyyy quiet… we’re making wabbits.” Our apologies to Mr. Elmer Fudd, and you are actually welcome to be just as noisy as you’d like when creating these Sweet, Soft, Stuffable Bunnies. Our classic stuffable critters are some of the most popular patterns here at Sew4Home. So when we started brainstorming with our friends at Shannon Fabrics about what projects to create for the fall and winter season, a new stuffed animal was at the top of the list. Introducing Lolly, Chester, and Flora – our trio of bunny pals. The same pattern was used to create all three, but each one has his/her own personality based on the type of Shannon Cuddle fleece used, the coordinating cotton for the ears and paws, and the bunny’s custom accessories. We’re particularly enamored of Chester’s bowtie.

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.

How to Crinkle Gauze: Extra-Long Scarf in Crinkled Embrace Metallic Double Gauze from Shannon Fabrics

Monday, 16 October 2017 1:00

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.
