Meet the Royal Court

We have a charming new group of cotton prints, Meet the Royal Court, filled with Kings and Queens, Princesses, Knights, and castles!

We have all of our Royal characters (including the royal pet!) in portraits.

And in a large all-over print!

There is a print of shields and coats of arms filled with intricate details.

And a map print so you can find your way around the kingdom!

Best of all, the group contains a project panel so you can make your own soft book! Kids and kids at heart will enjoy this adorable story.

Numbered pages and complete directions make this project simple to sew!

Lace Tunic

Treadlette Jennifer saw this cotton crochet-type lace and knew it had to be a cool summer blouse. With lace so popular right now and sheer tops so breezy and comfortable, we have to agree!

Jennifer used a strip of the lace's selvage to bind the neckline, and layered the blouse over a silky tank top - no lining needed!

 The pattern is Vogue 8913, made without the waist seam. Simply overlap and tape your pattern pieces together to cut the top in one piece.

What's your latest summer sewing project? You can always chat and share photos at our Facebook page!

We have a creepy cool new group of Alexander Henry's Ghastlies, including a cut-and-sew doll project! Treadlette Nina whipped these up for us to enjoy.

The dolls are big, plush, and full of sinister glamour! I am loving these two crabbyface ladies.

 I don't think I'll offer to babysit. . .

Here's the whole group in all their Ghastlie glory.

The group comes with an array of fabulous prints! Take a look.

Colette Aster

This cute blouse was made by Treadlette Julia from the Colette Aster pattern. Perfect for hot summer days when you still want to look fresh and sweet!

Julia made the short-sleeved version for summer, but Aster also includes a long-sleeved view. Both views feature a V-neck and button front, plus side bust darts for a fit that's relaxed but still neat.

You can get this pattern at our store, or find another blouse pattern that's perfect for you!

Summer Linen

Hot summer weather calls for crisp, cool fabrics, and natural, breathable linen is perfect. We have a great selection right now. Here are a few of the latest highlights!

Linen doesn't have to mean undyed neutrals. Take a look at these super bright linens to make a color statement!

This piece is all about the texture with its large, coarse weave. We have this fabric in several colors!

You can go all-natural AND high shine with this linen metallic print!

 And it's not all solids, either. Check out this watercolor floral print.

This washed linen has an incredibly soft and buttery texture. So enjoyable to sew, and so comfortable to wear! We have this is several colors also.

Stop in and whip up some quick, cool summer garments!
