We’re doing it again. Celebrate Fat Tuesday (tomorrow!) by stopping in for some fat quarters. All of our fat quarters will be a mere $2.75 each!
All of the beautiful bundles from Westminster Fibers/ Free Spirit will be marked down 10%. Come and get ‘em. And, for some inspiration, here are some ideas of patterns which will put your quarters to use.
-by Amy When the weather is cold and rainy here, I long to snuggle up with a good book and wait for spring. Recently I was given a Kindle e-book reader as a gift, and I wasn’t sure if I would like the technological intrusion on my “cozy time.” I tend to be pretty casual with my analog books, tossing them into my bag and taking them everywhere with me, a holdover from childhood when I couldn’t be separated from whatever I happened to be reading. This little felt cozy protects my new device from bumps and scratches, and puts a little warmth back into my reading experience.
A little measuring,
…a little sewing,
…a little cutting.
I love working with our wool/rayon blend felt. It’s great for quick crafts and gifts. The colors are so rich, and it is remarkably durable. I made the green iPad cozy about two years ago, and it is only now starting to wear at the corners. For the Kindle cozy I used two layers of felt, and I expect it will be nearly indestructable. What else can I wrap up in felt?

After a couple of days away, sewing our hearts out, we’re refreshed and ready to help with your next project! It was fun to come back to a stack of little boxes filled with new goodies. This adorable Robert Kaufman “slicker” coated cotton print was one of those new packages! Cute, and perfect for the wet weather we’re supposed to be getting more of later this week.
And, for the warm weather after that…some pretty new voiles. Top picture are Amy Butler’s latest, these came in a little bit ago, we just hadn’t featured them yet and couldn’t possibly pass them by. The lower picture is the gorgeous “Palos Verdes” line of organic cotton voile from Cloud 9. And, seersucker is back! The perennial summer cloth.
Stay tuned for posts on our fab new samples made over the past couple of days.
See you soon!
