What to sew: Camelot & Riley Blake

The International Quilt Market is such a great source of inspiration. All the different manufacturers show so many examples of what to sew with their fabrics that you don’t know what to remember. We totally loved the bags and pillows on the Camelot booth sewn with the cute Camelot dog fabrics that we also carry in our shop.

And Riley Blake showed many colourful children’s wear items in bright and happy colours combining many different fabrics in patchwork style. We also really loved the applications they put on dresses and pillows.

Lots of new fabrics in our shop

Oh Gosh, where do we start? In the last days and weeks we really have been adding lots of new fabrics. First of all we have new suppliers. Now you can find lovely fabrics from the Canadian manufacturer Camelot and the American manufacturer David Textiles in our shop. The latter also supplies us with the super cool Skelanimals fabrics which we will introduce soon more detailed. Also we added some big panel fabrics by David Textiles which are perfect for quilting.

Robert Kaufman sent us new fabrics too in all materials available (cotton, flannel, jersey, corduroy). We have adorable new designs from Ann Kelle’s Urban Zoologie collection and super cute forest animal prints from the Forest playground collection. If you like cool retro prints you should check out all the new Jersey fabrics by Amy Biggers.

Since we added Fat Quarter fabric bundles to our shop, they always sold out super quickly, so be fast if you want one of the new items based on Colorstories by Robert Kaufman.

What to sew: Kokka and echino fabrics

Kokka showed some really beautiful examples of what you can sew with their fabrics at the Spring Quilt Market in the USA. As we carry most of the echino fabrics, Melody Miller fabrics and Ellen Lucket Baker fabrics they displayed on the trade show we took lots of pictures of how the fabrics were used for different sewing projects. You could see many  bags sewed with echino fabrics, we loved especially the ones made with the echino rhino fabrics. Collections like echino rhythm and echino twin were great designs for making bags as well. As the fabrics have lots of different patterns which are arranged in stripes, they create a stunning patchwork look.

We also loved the dress, bags and cushions that were made with Ellen Lucket Baker’s citrus tree fabric or the little canvas flower fabrics. And Melody Miller’s retro prints just look amazing on home decor.

What to sew: birch and monaluna

The booths at the Spring Quilt Market in Portland that we visited a couple of weeks ago were so beautiful that we want to show you some of the exhibits a bit closer. They are a great source of inspiration and might give you some ideas of how the fabrics can look like when used to sew clothes and home decor. Many of the organic birch fabrics and monaluna fabrics that you see in the pictures below we already carry in our shop, e.g. the cute birch animal parade fabric used for the children’s blouse or the orange birch butterfly fabric used for the shorts. Others will still arrive in the next couple of weeks.

New paper clay by Debika in our shop

We just added some new paper clays by the Japanese brand Debika to our shop. Most of them are in white colour, but they can always be painted after they have dried. All of them are lightweight paper clays which are great for crafting dolls or small objects. Besides ‘regular’ lightweight air-dry clay we also have environmental-friendly paper clay, an ultra light paper clay and vacuum-packed paper clay in a reclosable bag to protect clay from drying out.

If you would like to try something different, get the cool wood paper clay which is made from recycled wood flour. You can craft objects in a wooden look with this kind of clay.

Ideas on how to use Hello Tokyo fabrics by Robert Kaufman

Just a couple of days ago we added fabrics from the super cute Hello Tokyo collection by Robert Kaufman to our shop. While browsing the web we found some incredible pictures on what to use those fabrics for. We saw these photos on the blog The Red Thread written by Lisa Tilse. Lisa designed the collection for Robert Kaufman and showed really great examples of what to do with the Hello Tokyo fabrics. We’re totally in love with all those adorable cushions which you can sew with the big Kokeshi doll fabric. How do you like all these ideas?

What customers make with our fabrics: girl’s dress and dog collar

Time to show off some adorable products some of our customers made with our fabrics. Cherie Amelie from Portugal sewed a super cute girl’s dress with our Little Red Riding Hood Kokka fabric. She posted a whole album full of adorable pictures of her little model posing for the camera, who obviously felt very comfortable in that wonderful summer dress. Unfortunately that fabric is currently sold out in our shop, but we still have many other kawaii Little Red Riding Hood fabrics in stock.

Our UK customer Emily from Leading the Pack made super cute dog collars with our fabrics. That’s an awesome idea, we haven’t seen anything like this done before. Especially the funny Timeless Treasures dog paw fabric is really great for a dog collar. We love it.

If you also want to show us what you made with our fabrics or other crafting products from our shop, just post a picture on our Facebook wall. We always appreciate it.
