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?

11 Days until Valentine’s Day

For this one you will have to be fast, as it requires processing and Valentine’s Day is approaching. Still we want to include the super cute Michael Miller heart fabric in our Countdown for Valentine’s Day. Because there are so many things you can do with a good quality fabric. How about some special Valentine’s Day bedclothes, a cute heart shirt, an apron, bag or  iPhone cover? If you like to sew, this is the right material to create a one-of-a-kind and very cute Valentine’s Day gift.

Hooray, we finished the San-X delivery

98….99…..100%. Let’s celebrate. We just added the last product of our huge San-X delivery to our shop. This one really kept us busy for a long time, we already got all the items in december. But as there were so many new things and also a couple of public holidays over Christmas and New Year’s, it took us a while to get everything ready for the online shop. So now you can browse through all the stuff of Rilakkuma, Kutusita Nyanko or Chou-fleur and enjoy the cuteness.

By the way, last we added cute Rilakkuma key covers and lots of adorable pens and pencils. Now we can start putting all the new fabrics online that recently arrived. So watch out for new stuff.

Catalogue with Echino Fabric Ideas

We got a lovely little catalogue with the recent Echino Fabric collection a little time ago, which contained some really pretty photos of bags and clothes that were made with the fabrics designed by Etsuko Furuya. It’s really nice to see how the fabrics look like when actually used, we thought you guys might like it too. Especially the Echino Canvas Bonbon Fabric can be seen a lot on the pictures in really pretty handbags, suitcases and funny slippers. You can also find it in our shop in black and beige. The bags made with the Echino canvas perch fabric looks really amazing too.

Echino Fabrics are designed by Japanese designer Etsuku Furuya who had her big breakthrough with the Etsuko Furuya’s Echino fabric collection in 2003. Animated patterns in bright colours have become her signature in her designs. She sticks to simple structures which she combines with great effect. Echino fabrics strike with their bold and loud colours and dynamic textures.

Maybe these pictures inspire you in your future sewing projects, we were defnitely totally blown away by the cute colourful products. And by the way, the Echino spring 2012 collection will arrive at our shop within the next weeks. We’ll keep you posted of course.

Our fabrics in German InStyle magazine

What a nice surprise. Some of our fabrics were printed in last month’s InStyle magazine. InStyle is a really big fashion & lifestyle print magazine in Germany with a run of nearly 500,000. A German Fashion Label made some very cute children’s clothes for the collection Villa Kunterbunt. Two of our fabrics were used in this collection for a cute dress and skirt. Don’t they look incredibly adorable? We can just imagine how children wear the dress made with our gnome fabric or the little cupcake skirt. Thumbs up for this.
