Many new fabrics from Cosmo, Michael Miller and Robert Kaufman

In the last weeks we added many great new fabrics from different designers to our shop. From Cosmo we received the cutest animal fabrics and lots of typical Japanese designs. Michael Miller sent us wonderful new prints like the collection Origami Oasis by Tamara Kate which features really lovely animal prints in an origami style. We now have many more prints from the Robert Kaufman canvas collection Auntie’s Attac in the shop and also more fun Robert Kaufman cotton prints from several collections.

New Michael Miller fabrics and cotton sateen

It’s fabric time again, we just finished adding lots of new Michael Miller fabrics to our shop. We have lots of new collections with adorable animal prints, but also cool graphical designs with polka dots and other patterns. We can also introduce a new material in our shop: cotton sateen. It is 100% cotton but a little heavier than regular Michael Miller cotton fabrics. It has a wonderful smooth feel and is therefore very suitable for sewing light home decor like cushions, curtains, kitchen decoration and so on. The cotton sateen fabrics from the bekko collection by designer Trenna Travis come in wonderful graphical prints such as stripes, swirls, waves and more which are great designs for home decor.

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.

We are published in the DaWanda Lovebook

We just got the DaWanda Lovebook today, in which we are published. DaWanda is an online marketplace where you can buy unique and self-made stuff from different suppliers and designers. Of course we have our own site there too. Each year DaWanda releases a lovebook for the press where they exclusively present 170 of the loveliest items available. For the edition 2011/2012 one of our fabrics got selected too. It’s by Michael Miller with a very cute Christmas deer print. It’s so great to be in there. When looking through the book I noticed that two of our customers are presented as well. And guess what, they even printed photos of their clothes that are made out of our fabrics. One customer made a cute dress with our fabric, another one sewed an adorable cushion cover.
