Our favourite product of the week: Christmas fabrics 2013

Yes, this is not a mistake. We already received our first Christmas fabrics for Christmas 2013 and made them our favourite product of the week. Of course this is super early, but it can’t hurt to have them in our shop already. People who want to start with their Christmas projects super early will definitely appreciate it.

The Robert Kaufman Christmas fabrics we received so far are all designed by Ann Kelle and show some of her famous designs in a Christmas look. Super cute and great idea.

Christmas things made with our Christmas fabrics

During the last weeks lots of people all over the world have sewed with our Christmas fabrics. And as some people asked us to post more pictures of what to do with our fabrics, we want to show you some of the beautiful things they have made.

We are truly impressed with what you people come up with: pillows, stockings, oven gloves, coasters, place mats, aprons, bags, fabric baskets, lamp shades and probably lots more.

By the way, we’re always super excited to see what you made with our fabrics, so feel free to send us your pictures and we might include them in one of our blog posts.

Lots of our fabrics in German creative magazine

Magazines really plan ahead and have an early schedule. Already at the beginning of this year the German creative magazine “Lena Creativ” contacted us, because they wanted to introduce some of our fabrics for their Christmas issue. Now it’s finally released and we are super happy with all the cute things they made. The magazine sewed a wonderful children’s apron with our green apples fabric from Kokka, an oven glove with the green Kokka apples and the Robert Kaufman forest animal fabric, an amazing lamp shade with one of our pretty ornament fabrics and colourful cushions with our flower fabrics. The magazine also provides you with the sewing instructions for those projects so you can copy all the lovely things yourself!

Meet the fabric designers on modes4u: Ann Kelle

If you browse through the fabrics in our shop, it’s basically impossible NOT to see her fabrics. Because we currently carry 100 different Ann Kelle designs on modes4u.com. So it’s about time to meet the successful Robert Kaufman designer in our weekly series.

Ann Kelle

She had her first line of children’s clothing and wedding dresses when she was nine… at least she was carrying the sketches for it in her backpack. Ann Kelle’ s love for designs was already very strong at a young age. Still at first she did not pursue a creative career as an adult, but was working in politics. In 2006 she decided to fullfill her childhood dream and launched Ann Kelle designs. And man, she really can’t complain about too little success. Her fresh and bright designs immediately caught the attention of the industry. A week following her debut, her designs were being presented to Target. Today you can find her fabrics, stationery and paper good designs in lots of boutiques and stores, as well as Barnes and Noble and – as already mentioned – Target.

We are of course most interested in her collaboration with Robert Kaufman. Kelle started working with the design house in 2009 and has launched many collections already. Urban Zoologie might be one of her most well known works and is especially successful in our shop modes4u.com. We carry lots of beautiful Ann Kelle fabrics from many collections such as Metro Market, Dessert Party, Remix Slicker or Ready! Set! Go!. This year we also got lots of fabrics from her super kawaii Christmas collection Jingle.

Kelle describes her style as “simple, sweet, and sassy” and that really gets to the point. Her designs are fun, colourful and always have a clear focus. “I’m inspired by things I’ve always known and loved from my childhood, from ice cream cones to spring flowers. The inspiration from my Urban Zoologie line comes from a variety of places. One of the first animals in this collection was the whales. The inspiration from this design came from a sweater Natalie wore in the 80s show ‘Facts of Life’.” 

In our shop you can find Kelle’s designs in almost every fabric category and on all materials: cotton, laminate, flannel or organic cotton. She has quite a variety to offer. Currently she is working with Robert Kaufman on adding new prints to the “Remix” collection, as well as new designs to the “Girl Friends” collection. Check out Ann Kelle’s blog if you want to see more of her designs and also examples of what you can do with them.

And be sure to check our blog in the next couple of days, because Ann Kelle is sponsoring a fabric bundle for a great giveaway! It will start very soon.
