I was on a pouf search for quite some time and eventually I ended up with Amy Butler’s Gum Drop pillow pattern in front of me. Only a few hours of constructing and—-pouf, it was done! Sadly, it’s often less expensive to purchase ready made items than it is to create something on your own, but this pouf saved me a handful of moola because I got to stuff it with all of my fabric scraps combined with some Pendleton wooly worms; which I found entirely satisfying. We have the pattern in the shop and it can be sewn in two sizes. Make your own!
This week we restocked some of our much loved heavy weight and upholstery fabrics. A great pairing that has been a hit with customers and employees is Otter Wax + Water resistant army duck canvas. We replenished our stock, and have included more neutral colors. To jazz up your interior decorating, check out our new stock of upholstery fabrics, all brightly colored and sure to keep away those winter blues! We are also glad to introduce a new pattern line to the store; Sew Caroline! These patterns are simple and sweet, and we know you will enjoy them. Also peep the new Sewaholic patterns! I’m all about a nice buttonup, and they came out with not one, but two! Plus a great, easy skirt pattern. Some incredible quilting weight cottons, new to the store, are a collection of soothing prints handmade in Bali! Last but not least, Alexander Henry doesn’t quit with some gorgeous new Calaveras prints. Besides all these great new pieces we have an announcement….

I applause Wendy Ward for her Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking. This book is outlined with 6 simple garments where you learn a new skill with each one. Bias binding, ruffling, patch pockets, side seam pockets, collars, zippers, sewing with knit and setting in sleeves are just a few skills that you will learn along the way. Each garment is tastfully designed and comfortable which makes you want to get right to work. I snapped a few photos for you! See you soon at the shop!
