Hi everyone,





Happy Monday! We hope you all had a great weekend, soaking up the last little bits of Summer. Although, it has been pretty chilly as of late…apparently, we should be hitting the mid-20s this week so that should be a wonderful way to kickstart Fall! We’ve also got our Paisley Please & Aurifil Threads Giveaway on our Facebook Page this week. Be sure to enter here!


It’s time a dash of inspiration with today’s Moody Monday! We have been happily perusing the recent fashion collections from Fashion Week, and seeing all the trends for the upcoming seasons. We love Star Wars everything here (*ahem* here, here, here, here, here *ahem*), so seeing that Star Wars hit the runway for Fall/Winter 2014 in multiple shows was AWESOME! Naturally, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection made us SO happy, we just had to share it with you all!! The Preen/Disney collaboration brought us Darth Vader’s mask in a very abstract and motif-esque way, making the pieces wearable for the everyday. You can check out the full collection, including the other Star Wars outfit, HERE.




Our Star Wars collections are always filled with flashes of bright colors, interesting galactic scenes, and all your favorite SW characters (Yoda, Hans Solo, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Darth Vader…hey, everyone has their favorites). What we love almost even more is being able to chat with all the fellow Star Wars fans, and seeing all their incredible projects with our Star Wars fabric. We are always so amazed at their incredible creativity, and it always makes our days when they share their projects with us. We are so thrilled that we get to a part of such a wonderful and passionate community! Be sure to check out all of our Star Wars goodness here.


We hope we have inspired you with today’s Moody Monday! Here’s to a fantastic week; have a great day! :)





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,






Happy Friday!! YAY for the weekend; wishing everyone a fantastic one! As well, we are hosting a Paisley Please + Coordinating Aurifil Threads Giveaway on our Facebook Page. You can enter our giveaway HERE!


It’s time for this week’s Fan Friday! And we’ve got one that is perfect to end this week and kick-start the weekend. Today we are featuring a really beautiful Etsy Shop, Sew Liab. Martina Croom, owner and creative behind Sew Liab, is a military mom currently stationed in Northern France and a sewing enthusiast. It was teachers, family, and her husband who encouraged her to start a shop to sell her creations, and thus her Etsy Shop was born.


The name Sew Liab has two origins: Sew is to represent what she loves to do, and Liab; a Austrian vernacular for cute, sweet and precious to express what she sells. The name fits perfectly for her shop, because Martina sells the sweetest of handmade clothing (dresses, tunics, etc), quilts, baby items, toys, bags, and more! As well, Martina has a keen eye for adorable, but modern fabric collections to use, to make all her designs bright, happy, and fun.




Martina chose our Let’s Go by Andrea Turk for Cinnamon Joe Studio Collection for her lovely Pencil Pouches. The structure is perfect for storing all your coloring tools, but can also be used as a makeup bag, sewing supplies carrier, or bag separator. The fox designs add an adorable flair to this pencil pouch, that everyone will be asking where you got it from! We adore the sweet foxes, raccoons, and flora patterns decorating the happy pouches from Let’s Go. And what makes Martina super awesome is the customization factor of her shop – you can also request a larger size of this pouch, as a toiletry bag or diaper clutch! Check out her awesome Let’s Go Pencil Pouch here.





We want to thank Martina for the wonderful fabric love!! We are so happy you love our Let’s Go Collection, and decided to choose it for your beautiful pencil pouches. Be sure to check out more from Martina at her Etsy Shop, as well as her Facebook Page. We hope everyone has a great weekend! Until next week…





Happy Sewing!

It’s time for our What We Love #16 ♥ This week on our Pinterest Boards, we (the Camelot Design Studio) have been busy pinning away all the things that have inspired us most. We have been greatly been influenced by intricate and unique patterns & bold colorways. As Fall is quickly approaching, our inspirations have started to lean more towards cozier and richer images, getting us ready for the colder season. We absolutely adore this print of the Moon and Earth, these stunning marmalade jars, these enticing textile moths by Yumi Okita, this amazing textiles shop in Colombia, and plaid/pleather combinations for Autumn. Check out our images for even more visual prettiness… ♥
