Spring officially begins in three days, conveying with it the anticipation of sunshine, flowers, baby birds, spotted fawns and lush green fields. I look out the window and see none of that. Spring has its work cut out for it. Seems like a good time to give spring a nudge with a field of enchantingly fresh prints guaranteed to bring a little ray of sun to your day.
We've heard it again and again… it's tough to find appropriate fabric for guys; big guys AND little guys. So, this month we decided to go on a mission for guy fabric. As we looked around and tried to choose fabric, we realized that it totally depends on what you are sewing. If you're making pajama pants, the contemporary floral that would be acceptable on the curtains or even a duvet, is all wrong on guys. So, we looked for fabric that would work for guys' pajama pants. When you look at it that way… it actually is difficult to find fabric for guys. The majority of fabric is marketed to women; for women, girls, babies and home décor. In the end, we found a decent assortment of fabric by cherry picking collections for the more masculine or boyish prints. Take a look at some of our faves.
This month's selection of fabrics is very summery, warm and luxurious. Right after Quilt Market, we see so many gorgeous new collections that narrowing our picks is not easy. It's a terrific time to look for lovely new fabrics like the ones we've chosen. These collections are either fresh in inventory at your favorite fabric shops or will be very soon. We're always interested to know what new fabrics are catching your eye.
It's a good thing Sew4Home doesn't feature any audio feeds or you'd have to put up with me singing Katy Perry's Hot N Cold while you read this article. Lucky for you ... and most of the planet, we'll skip the singing and instead concentrate on a few facts about the available thermal material options for home décor.
