Make way for the most popular projects! July is one of the hottest months of the year here in the states, so we’re turning up the cool. We’ve picked five top projects from three of our favorite categories: Bags & Totes, Aprons, and Storage Solutions. Each week for the next three weeks, we’re featuring classics for you to discover – or re-discover. And to celebrate the return of these coolest-of-the-cool projects, we have an amazing prize bundle to go with each themed week. That’s three chances to win, and we have three ways to enter!
Caution! You’re entering the 3-D Zone – but you won’t need those dorky glasses… and I promise nothing will appear to fly out of the screen at your head! We’re working in 3-D with a new product from our friends at Indygo Junction: Fabriflair™. If you’re familiar with English Paper Piecing, you’re two-steps ahead already. Fabriflair™ is dimensional paper piecing. We’re delighted to have Fabriflair™ creator, Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction onboard with a Guest Tutorial. She’s sharing some of her favorite cutting and stitching techniques, and she has a discount coupon code for Sew4Home visitors to use on any of the five Fabriflair™ kits.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our under-the-sea week as we brought you the magic of the new TokyoMilk Neptune and the Mermaid collection by Margot Elena for Coats. As she herself describes it, “The collection can be paired and coordinated to inspire creations that are as pretty as you please, or as unexpected as you dare… an enchanted ocean awaits.” Never ones to hog all the fun, we're excited to be able to share some of this beautiful fabric with you along with some matching thread!
“Wait a minute,” I shout, pulling the phone away from my ear. “TokyoMilk? You mean like the hand cream I have sitting right here on my desk? That TokyoMilk? She’s doing a fabric collection for Coats? (sounds of screaming and phone dropping).” This is a reenactment of the excitement that ran through the Sew4Home studios when our pals at Coats told us about their latest designer collaboration with Margot Elena. Margot is the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Margot Elena Companies & Collections. She is the design and marketing mind behind several cult-classic, niche beauty brands, including TokyoMilk, Lollia, Library of Flowers, and her newest creation, The Cottage Greenhouse. To her long list of accomplishments, she now adds: Fabric Designer. Today, you'll get to meet Margot through our interview and find out a little bit about the inspiration behind her first collection, Neptune and the Mermaid. You’ll also learn a few of her personal secrets to color mixing and matching, and discover why Margot never designs and drives.

May 14th is Mother’s Day. In case you’re still searching for a special gift, we’re here to help with five ideas to say, “Thanks!” For not telling Dad who scratched the smiley face into the car’s bumper. For believing I was beautiful in my braces and unfortunate side pony tail. For picking me up when I fell, brushing me off, and telling me I could do anything. Yep; she’s a mother like no other. Sew up a little extra love for Mom on her special day. All the suggestions below are fast and easy. Plus, we’ve included a special set of Mother’s Day free printable gift tags.

The more we know about our audience, the better we can tailor our projects, product reviews, and technique tutorials. We have just a few short multiple-choice questions, which should take you about five minutes to complete. We promise there will be no math story problems or trick questions about who exactly is buried in Grant’s tomb. If you include your email at the completion of the survey, you'll be entered in a drawing to win a mystery grab bag of cool fabric cuts direct from the S4H Stash. It's an easy way to let us know what you would be the most interested in seeing right here on Sew4Home.
