Stashbusters Fun

April 18, 2012

One look out the window or a quick step out the door and we all know that those late winter days of summer sunshine and temperatures were a real mean tease by Mother Nature!

Let’s show Mother Nature that she can’t dampen our spirits; we are going to have the time of our lives anyway! Tomorrow (Thursday April 19) from 10am – 9pm is Stashbusters at Village Fabrics & Crafts in Paradise! A full day of “forget about the weather” and have a great day stitching and laughing together. Spend the whole day or as much as your schedule permits to beat the “I don’t like this weather” blues.

Think of the projects in your stash as mellowing like fine wine or cheese; they get better with age. Tomorrow during Stashbusters we will give you a gift if you are the one stitching on the largest, best aged and mellowed Stashbuster project, the one finishing the smallest vintage project, the one who stitches with us the longest tomorrow and the one who is stitching on the most prized special Stashbuster item; the one you are finishing for yourself!

Reminder, there is another Stashbusters on Wed. April 25 from 10am – 5pm. The forecast is again calling for a chance of rain. Let’s stitch as much as we can while the “April showers are bringing May flowers!”

Charming

February 7, 2012

Charm square packs are so cute!  They have a wonderful selection of fabric since they quite often contain one or two pieces of each fabric in a group or collection, for  a total of about 40 squares.  Recently we were playing with the greatest little rulers made just for the 5″ charm squares and found that with some additional fabrics; 3/4 yard of coordinating or contrasting fabric and then backings and bindings, we could have three totally different table runners!  To make them even easier, instead of binding, use one of the tools that allows you to bring your backing fabric to the front – it makes the most awesome mitered corners!

Click on the picture if you would like to see a larger view or visit us at the shop to see the real thing!

Till next time – happy crafting!

Fun & Easy Ruffles

February 3, 2012

Quick – look around.  Do you see anything that you would like to put a fabric ruffle on?  Maybe a little girls’ sundress, a curtain, chair pad, pillow or an apron?  Ruffles used to be a lot of work but not anymore.  There is a new product from Clover that makes ruffles quick and easy!  First you start by finishing the edges of your ruffle piece.  If you are inserting the ruffle piece into a seam than you really only need to worry about the edge that will stick out, so you can just finish one of the long edges or you can make a tube and turn it so there aren’t any raw edges.  Iron the Clover product to the backside of your fabric, following the instructions on the package.

 

Pull the threads to make the ruffle.

Insert ruffle into project.  In this case the bottom trim of an apron.

That’s it!  That is how easy ruffles can be!
