Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Friday! And Happy First of May!!! We are just SO excited for all the awesome things that will be happening this month…one being Quilt Market! Wooo – see you at booth 101!

 

It’s time to end our week with our Fan Friday! Today we are featuring a beautiful tunic by the blog szycie i cala reszta, featuring our Iconic Collection. Iconic is our feminine and dainty collection of pink, taupe, and navy hues in gorgeous geometrics. When we look at this collection, we feel very 1950s inspired – mid-length dresses, fabulous hats, and elegant accessories. We can imagine a lovely tea dress in our navy and pink sartorial print, worn by the iconic Coco Chanel herself!

The blogger behind szycie i cala reszta created a lovely tunic top with the french knot design of our Iconic Collection, and it looks so good!! We love the cleanness of the tunic, really showcasing the boldness of the print. Such a wonderful, chic tunic!

Thank you so much for sharing your Camelot Fabrics project with us! You can find more on her blog, Instagram, and Facebook. Her blog is in Polish, but her projects are so lovely to look at (I believe szycie is sewing in Polish) :) Have a great weekend!!

 

 

 

 

Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday!! We hope everyone is having a lovely day so far. It’s the last day to enter our Beyond the Backyard x Westcott Giveaway, so if you haven’t entered yet, be sure to! We are giving away a Beyond the Backyard FQ bundle and two Westcott cutting tools.

 

It’s time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are featuring our Tablet Case Tutorial from Hypernoodle, a case that is equally protective and stylish for your tablet. Long gone are the days of those industrial-looking and plain cases that, yes, are functional…but really not that pretty to look at. We’ve solved that problem with our fabric case so that now you’ll want to carry your tablet with you everywhere! The slight padding adds support, and the size will fit a standard tablet. As well, the snap closure makes it easy for you to use your tablet and then store it back.

We used our Iconic by Camelot Design Studio Collection to feature our tablet case, which makes it very modern and chic. The pink and navy pairing of our case is super pretty and elegant, and makes for the perfect companion for the stylish technologist-a on the go!

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! We hope everyone is having a wonderful day. We are celebrating Mother’s Day all this week because we love our mums! Today we are going to share with you a wonderful gift idea for that special mom who deserves to feel pampered.

 

This week’s How To’s day is our elegant Trellis Edged Robe featuring our Iconic Collection. This robe is luxurious and beautiful, complete with stunning trellis detailing on the sleeves and edging, as well as a satin lining. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to a cup of coffee or tea, with the daily newspaper or favorite television show, snuggled up in this robe? There is no better way to spend the morning, we think. Our Trellis Edged Robe will make anyone feel pretty and like royalty, as our mums should feel every day!!

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

 

Happy Friday everyone! TGIF!! We hope everyone is having a wonderful, sunshine-filled day. If not – we’ve got something to brighten your day! We are giving away a Bright Now Fabric Stack on our Facebook Page this week!

 

To end this week, we have got our Fan Friday!! Today we’ve got another incredible project to share with you all – Yana from Hemming Birds created a gorgeous half-apron that is absolutely perfect with our Iconic Collection. Yana made this wonderful half-apron as a wedding shower gift for her best friend, Melissa, who resides in New York City.

 

The design is loosely based on a vintage apron Yana had seen in an antique store. It’s also reversible…AND has pockets (We love ANYTHING with pockets here at CF!). She chose our Iconic Collection for its more modern esthetic, and it is honestly a perfect pairing with this half-apron. And I mean, who wouldn’t want to bake up a batch of oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies in this adorable apron? :)

Yana and her sister-in-law, Jennifer, started their blog Hemming Birds to share their passions for cooking, baking, and sewing as well as mom/family-related topics. Moreover, they will be opening up a handmade shop in May, which will be featuring handmade children’s accessories – bibs, girl’s handbags, backpacks, aprons, and more! They have also posted the tutorial for this half-apron on their blog, so be sure to check it out. What’s even more exciting is that you could win your very own Iconic Apron on their blog – so be sure to enter the giveaway for your chance! This apron makes us want to do some baking and cooking, and we are super excited for whoever wins.

 

You can also find the wonderful and super creative ladies of Hemming Birds on their blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Thank you so much, Yana, for sharing your half-apron with us! It is absolutely stunning and seeing the pictures made our day!! Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and don’t forget to stop by our Facebook Page to enter our Bright Now Giveaway.

 

 

 

Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday!! We cannot believe that we are nearing the end of March already. But, with the weather also starting to get warmer here, we hope this means that signs of Spring are near! We have been super inspired by all the bright colors and fun prints we have been on Pinterest, in stores, and in magazines!

 

BurdaStyle‘s Spring 2014 Issue is filled with lots of style inspiration to get you ready for the warmer weather! Along with endless Spring fashion tips and tricks throughout the magazine, the BurdaStyle magazine also includes full-sized fashion sewing pattern inserts for on-trend clothing pieces that you can create, to your taste. We especially adore the fabric 101 section in the magazine that focuses on everything you need to know about fabric, from selection to care and so much more!

Another great feature in the magazine is the Fabric Trends section, showcasing trends for the current season. Our Iconic Collection is perfect for the warmer weather, as the coral and navy hues in classic prints are very nautical and mod/60s-inspired – two huge trends for this season!

 

We love the combination of navy and coral – very refreshing, vibrant, and happy…which is just what Spring is to us! You can check out our Iconic Collection here for all the designs. We also have a couple of free projects featuring our Iconic Collection – Our Necktie and Conversation Hearts & Banner tutorials.

We also adored seeing popups of our fabric collections, such as Sweet Pea in the background of Denise’s editor’s note and this lovely floral pattern from Baby Dino! We collaborated with BurdaStyle by sending them our fabric collections, and it’s been super fun spotting our designs in their magazine, tutorials, and in the background of their webinairs!
