The change of the season calls for revamping your wardrobe, trying out new recipes, and… launching new fabric collections! Yup, that’s right – it’s time for our Fall 2015 Collections Launch Week! Starting things off with our The With Love Collection by Jack!e McFee. With Love is a feminine collection of pastel pinks, greys, and sugar-y brown. This collection is the epitome of “girly” with the dainty heart prints, the delicate florals, and divine damask patterns – so pretty and sweet, it just can’t be beat! 




With Love would be such a lovely compliment to a nursery or little girl’s bedroom. Our Diamonds Quilt is so ethereal and soft in our With Love collection – a perfect combination! And how darling would a pink and grey tea dress be for your little princess? And a coordinating one for you, of course! Everyone is a princess at heart.





Let us know what you think of our With Love by Jack!e McFee Collection!! What would you create? We’ve got more collections to share with you today – get excited!

Hi everyone,





Happy Friday!! It’s almost the weeeeeekend. Woo! We hope all the moms have an incredible Mother’s Day this weekend, surrounded by lots of love and warm hugs. (Pssst.. we’re also hosting a Mother’s Day Giveaway!)


It’s time for this week’s Fan Friday! Today we are featuring a lovely personalized essential oils case found on the Girl Restored Shop. Jessie Carroll is the creative gal behind Girl Restored, an Etsy Shop dedicated to handmade, original bags of all sorts. She specializes in creating bags (clutches, train cases, makeup bags) with removable pockets for your essential oils, so that they are organized & will not spill everywhere. She also creates all of her own patterns, sells some of her patterns in her shop, and offers custom orders too.




Jessie chose our Bright Now by Jackie McFee Collection to create a fun, personalized case – complete with a personalized letter front, tassels, and pockets for your essential oils. She chose our yellow colorway for the bag, yellow drops for the shell & polka dots for the inner lining, that matched perfectly with the bronze letter and zipper tassel. The bag is a great size for all of your cosmetics, for travelling, and can hold up to 20 essential oil bottles.






Thank you, Jessie, for the fabric love!! You can find more from Girl Restored at her Etsy Shop, Facebook Page, Twitter, and Instagram. You can find her Bright Now bag here. Have a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend!!





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone!





Happy Monday! We hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. The temperature has definitely been dipping close to 0℃ here…BRR!! Not quite ready for the winter storms yet, but we’re trying to keep warm with our wool coats, knitted scarves, and ear warmers.


It’s time for this week’s Moody Monday! Our Singin’ the Blues by Jackie McFee Collection is just as the name suggests. This collection is all about pretty shades of blues in a multitude of wonderful geometric patterns. Blue is such a universally flattering color, and works well for all seasons (pacific blue for the warmer months, navy for the fall & winter!), and is always a classic. The simple, but eye-catching geometric prints in our Singin’ the Blues Collection are so stylish, and remind us of a wonderful Mediterranean vacation. Just add a touch of some blue into your house, and it will instantly lift everything up. You can see examples of projects here!




We are so inspired by Iro’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection! This collection perfectly encapsulates where we wish we were right now. Crisp white, blue, and black are the primary colors in this tropical-inspired collection, complete with dust jackets, wide-legged trousers, and unique cut-outs. We especially adored the featured dust jacket in a stunning blue print, reminiscent of our Singin’ the Blues Collection. You can see the rest of this collection here.



We hope we have inspired you today with this week’s Moody Monday! We’d love to know what your ideal vacation would be. And with that…have a wonderful day, everyone! :)





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,





Happy Monday! We hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and an awesome Halloween! There’s still time to enter our Beyond the Backyard x Westcott Giveaway on our Facebook Page, so be sure to enter if you haven’t yet. Winner will be announced on Wednesday!


It’s time to start off the week with our Moody Monday! Today we are featuring one of our newest collections from our Fall 2014 Launch, Heavy Metal by Jackie McFee for Camelot Fabrics. This collection is just as the name suggests, full of pretty metallic prints and designs. Heavy Metal includes a beautiful mix of silver and gold geometrics including chevrons, hexagonal prints, stars, dots, and animal prints. This metallic-infused collection would bring some pizzazz to any outfit, whether as a shift dress or a foldover clutch. As well, how about a glam quilt? We love the idea of a metallic quilt, perfect for a posh bed quilt or as wall decor.




Samuji‘s Spring RTW 2015 Collection brought about lots of bold colors and prints in fun Spring and Summer-inspired cuts. Intense patterns were subdued with more feminine silhouettes, neutral colors, and an Asian influence. We especially adored the use of metallics in his collection, which were reminiscent of our Heavy Metal by Jackie McFee collection. We love this simple, but classic shift dress done in a metallic chevron print. You can see the rest of Samuji’s collection here. Such a majestic, but feminine collection.


We hope you have been inspired by this week’s Moody Monday! Be sure to check out the rest of our Heavy Metal collection, and all the associated free projects, on our website. Have a fantastic day, everyone!
