Hi everyone,





Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all doing well. Have you entered our Ethereal FQ Bundle Giveaway yet? You can win this bundle of gorgeousness – be sure to enter here!


The holiday season is officially here! And there is so much left to do – decorating the tree, finding those last minute gifts, planning the perfect menu for your upcoming holiday party, and baking, baking…and oh yes, more baking. And while we can’t help with your holiday shopping or baking, we’ve got a fun DIY today that will surely add festivity to your party decor!


Our Chalkboard Fabric Holiday Banner is perfect for organizing your party (DIY hot chocolate bar, anyone? :)), as a backdrop for a photobooth, or for adding some extra holiday cheer! We had our office Christmukkah party this past weekend, and our banner added a modern and creative element to the decor. And the best parts? It’s not too difficult to make… and it’s reusable!

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday! We hope you are all having a lovely day. Just a reminder…our two holiday giveaways are still going strong until January 7th! You can enter on our Instagram and Facebook for some bundles of fabric prettiness!! :)


It’s time for our Thankful Thursday!! Soso much to be thankful for, and as this year is coming to an end, we have been reminiscing of all the wonderful people we have met and all the incredible partnerships we have been a part of. Thank you to each and every person who has filled our year with bunches of creativity, fun, excitement, and color!!


And speaking of amazing partnerships, we are thanking BurdaStyle today. We adore the BurdaStyle Magazine because it is a great source for all things sewing and fabric-related, with a modern twist…and lots of awesome fashion tidbits, which we appreciate. They know the latest and upcoming trends, and coordinate their articles and projects accordingly. It’s getting your seasonal source of fashion & trends AND fantastic patterns/tutorials/sewing tips all in one!! Yup, we’re big fans. In their latest magazine issue for Winter 2015, the theme was all about getting cozy, while staying chic, during the colder months. Their cover photo features the coolest of faux fur coats that we are just in love with! SO fab!

As well, flipping through the magazine, you may find a familiar project…our Smoking Slippers Tutorial! Our Smoking Slippers are a great project to make for yourself, or as a last minute DIY gifts for friends and family. They are super cute, super stylish, and super cozy – yup, not much more you can ask for! As well, they are perfect for both men and women, so it’s also a super versatile project.


We are so happy that BurdaStyle loves our Smoking Slippers!! Thank you for the wonderful feature, we are so thrilled!! You can find the free project and pattern for our Smoking Slippers here. Be sure to check out the latest Winter 2015 issue of BurdaStyle (you won’t regret it, fellow sewing enthusiasts), and their website for lots more. Have a lovely day, everyone!

Hi everyone,





Happy Tuesday! We hope everyone is having a great day. We are getting closer to the holidays, and we are soo excited!! We continued the spirit today by having our gift exchange in the Camelot Design Studio. We also made our very own color-taped Christmas tree to put the presents under – definitely feeling festive here, we’d say! To keep the holiday cheer rolling, we’re also hosting two holiday giveaways on our Facebook and Instagram…AND All Free Sewing is giving away our Spectrum FQB today for their #12DaysofXmas!


It’s time for this week’s How To’s Day! Just in time for the holiday season, we are sharing our DIY Holiday Cards Tutorial today. We love receiving cards from our loved ones, and handmade ones are just the icing on the cupcake! We love handmade cards because they are more sentimental and personal, and are a way for you to have fun and create.




Our DIY Holiday Cards use our Ad-Fab™ to create decals that jazz up blank greeting cards, and with our Hot Chocolate Ad-Fab™, our cards are fabulously festive! We offer two designs, our Tree & Ornament Card and our Menorah Card, so the choice is yours! Then, add your personality to each card with your own accent designs. Get creating, get crafting, and get festive!!
