Our favourite product of the week: Glow in the dark Halloween fabric

Clearly our favourite product of the week: the Timeless Treasures glow in the dark spiderwebs fabric. Why? Because it glows in the dark. Really! The spiderwebs have a glow in the dark pattern that can absorb light, so that you see it even in the dark. Isn’t it the perfect Halloween fabric for costumes and decoration with a spooky effect?

New in our shop: Alexander Henry fabrics

You might have noticed some of the funky new designs in our fabric section already. We now carry Alexander Henry fabrics in our shop and love the new designs. Until now we mainly added Christmas fabrics, but many more will follow in the next weeks. One of our favourites already is the kawaii Kokeshi doll fabric that we ordered in different colours.

The textile design house Alexander Henry is situated in California, USA, and has been in the fabric business for more than 30 years. They make cutting-edge cotton prints and each pattern is still painted by hand. Their fabrics are made in Japan, so they really stand for high quality. They say themselves that their designs are inspired by art history, runway fashion and the culture at large, which we think really shows in their prints, e.g. their big pin-up series that’s clearly inspired by the 50s. How do you like them?

Today is World Turtle Day

Every year on May 23rd the American Tortoise Rescue sponsors World Turtle Day. It’s not hard to guess what the purpose is: They want to bring attention to turtles and tortoises and also encourage people to help more. We like turtles a lot, they are a very popular design in our shop. So of course we support the turtle day. We celebrate with our cute Michael Miller turtle fabric.

Get some ice cream on your clothes

Don’t worry, we don’t ask you to mess up your clothes by smearing ice cream onto them. We rather want you to prepare for summer, because it is right around the corner. Time for joy, colours and crazy prints. Such as our lovely Robert Kaufman ice cream designs. The yummy cones on the fabrics are such a great symbol for hot and bright summer days. We can picture them perfectly as funny children’s dresses, funky summer skirts or cool table cloths. They will brighten up every summer day even more and make you smile on a rainy day.

Our favourite product of the week: cool retro comic fabrics

We recently added lots of new Michael Miller fabrics from the USA to our shop. And we just can’t stop thinking about those super funny retro comic designs from their collection. The two fabrics that we got are so damn cool! Therefore they are our favourite products of the week.

They both are in comic style, but pretty different from the design. The Kiss me fabric has different cheesy love scenes on it, it’s really awesome. The Zap! Pow! Boom! fabric has lots of expression from comics printed on it. Isn’t that a fun idea? Thumbs up for the cool Michael Miller comic fabrics.

Fabric lovers: Laminate yourself

This is a pretty cool thing. We get so many requests from customers who ask for a laminated version of their favourite fabric. Now you can just do it yourself. When part of our team went to Japan the last time, they discovered an iron-on laminate foil and were really impressed by the results and the quality. So now you can buy this laminate foil in our shop and just iron it on all of your favourite fabrics. We carry two different sizes, each one either with a very smooth or a little rough surface. This is a really cool DIY-thing if you want to make waterproof things like bags, bibs, aprons, table cloths, wash bags etc.

How to use:

1. Place the foil with the smooth side on the fabric to be laminated

2. slowly iron the paper side with medium heat without steam at 120-140 degrees Celcius. Apply a little pressure

3. Allow material to cool down completely

4. Slowly peel off the paper (If the foil doesn’t stick completely to the fabric, just put the paper back on and repeat ironing)

For everybody who prefers to buy laminated fabrics already, check out our laminate category in our shop. We got some of our popular Robert Kaufman designs in a laminated version recently.

We make a point – with lots of new polka dot fabrics

All the new Michael Miller fabrics that arrived a couple of days ago are finally online in our shop. We got all kind of different designs and materials, but a couple of themes are definiteley dominant. For example polka dots. That simple and classic pattern is really popular and Michael Miller has such a great variety, so we ordered a whole bunch of different designs. We just L-O-V-E those spotted fabrics, they are bright and cheerful and can be used for any project. Check out all the new fabrics we got from the Ta Dot collection and the Dumb Dot collection. Quite a few designs are also available in flannel.

67 new Robert Kaufman fabrics online

It does sound kind of impressive, doesn’t it? Even if you deduct the number of fabrics we just restocked or got in different colours, there are probably nearly 50 completely new fabrics we just finished adding to our shop. Still impressive! At least it means lots of new choices for you fabric lovers. Choose from animal designs, flower prints or pastry patterns. We hope we picked some unique and interesting stuff for you and already enjoyed the Robert Kaufman material when it arrived. There are a lot of funny designs like the colourful farm fabric, the kitchen utensil fabric or the writing symbol fabric. And isn’t the cute heart cookies fabric a great idea for a Valentine’s Day project?

Our favourite product of the week: animal fabrics

If you asked us to pick a favourite, we really couldn’t. Each one of these Robert Kaufman animal fabrics from the USA is so kawaii, we love all of them. It was a lot of fun adding them to our shop this week. We are not completely finished yet and of course there are other designs too. But the birds, elephants, dogs, turtles, monkey, cats and ladybirds got us hooked, so we make them our favourite product of the week. Aren’t they incredibly colourful and have lovely patterns?

Which one is your favourite?
