May 28, 2010 the shop now...nest by valori wells...

Have you seen Valori Wells' new collection?  It's called Nest and focuses on birds, of course!  Big birds, little birds, big flowers, little flowers...all are fabulous!  We opted for some lovely pinks and tangerines, two colors which I wouldn't have thought would go SO well together, but they do.

Aren't they pretty??  That last print with the yellow background is called Paisley and the color name is Summer...I love that!  And in case you can't see them, there are little birds mixed in amongst the swirls and flowers and hearts - such a fun print!  Head over to the shop and pick some up!

See you in the shop!

...coming soon...gypsy by felicity miller...

Gypsy is a fabulous new line by Felicity Miller for Free Spirit.  Check out this fun story of Felicity's inspiration for and description of the line:

"Gypsy is a tribute to my Romany heritage. My great, great, great Grandmother, Lydia Field, lived in a caravan into her 90s. These designs are a result of my study of caravans and my imaginings of a nomadic life rich with Music, Full Moons and Ups and Downs punctuated with Flowers in fearless colours. Lyrical living is important in any age and so these patterns are for you, the modern Gypsy, on your journey with life… sew away!"


Gypsy should be arriving any day and we'll get it listed as soon as we can!

See you in the shop!

May 14, 2010 fabric friday...raindrop stripe by riley blake designs...

We love this collection!  Rainy Days & Mondays is such a cute name for the collection and the designs are even cuter.  If you recall, we chose another print from this collection for a previous Fun Fabric Friday.  The designs aren't just cute, they're clever.  In Raindrop Stripe, it is exactly what it sounds like it would be...they've taken your average stripe and dotted it with raindrops to it give a whole new dimension.

Because we love it so much, it's this week's Stash Builder Sale Print.  A fat quarter is only $1.50!  While you're getting this great print, check out the rest of the Rainy Days prints!

See you in the shop!

PS - The new Spring/Summer lines are shipping and should begin arriving soon.  Stay tuned for Felicity Miller's Gypsy and Valori Wells' Nest!

May 6, 2010 the shop modkid patterns by patty young...

Patty Young just released 4 brand new patterns and they're in stock and ready for purchase!  Patty teamed up with her mom (who designs and makes purses) to create ModKid's first handbag pattern, Stella. 

Plus, Patty has created 2 new girls patterns, Abigail and Maya, to go with her soon-to-be-released knits!


And finally, the Mini Nina is the 4th pattern in ModKid's doll clothing series.  Adorable!  While you're shopping for this one, pick up the child size version, the Nina, so your little one and her dolly can have matching outfits!

See you in the shop!

May 3, 2010 the shop now...valori wells sewing cards...

I came across these cute little sewing cards a couple weeks ago and just had to order a few.  They are too cute!  These aren't new patterns by any means, but they're new to the shop! :)  These simple projects are great for most skill levels and the instructions are short & sweet. 

I love the Journal Covers pattern because it's so versatile.  Not only can you use it to spruce up your journal, but also notebooks, planners, books, etc.  There's a simple little math equation that helps you figure out exactly how much fabric you need for any book size. 

I love the Project Bags pattern because it makes such a great gift.  Have you ever made (or bought!) someone a gift only to have a hard time figuring out how to wrap it?  These project bags would be perfect!  Make one up with the gift receiver's favorite fabric and it's like a second gift.  Or just need a simple storage solution for your craft projects?  The pattern gives instructions for 3 different bag sizes, so you're sure to find a good use for them!

And finally, I love the Little Wallet pattern because it's SO cute!  How perfect is this for your business cards?  Also perfect for those times when all you need is a little cash (or credit!) and your more lugging around a purse when you can slip a couple cards and some cash in your stylish, handmade little wallet!

Great little patterns for a great little price - only $3.00!  And buy some fabric to make your new projects with and you don't pay shipping on the pattern. 

See you in the shop!
