Taking back Sunday’s

Football season is over! (FINALLY!)

Now that your Sunday’s have opened up why not task yourself with a fun new project this weekend. Do you have empty wall space that could use an addition? I came across a tutorial on how to make wall canvas art using fabric! (I am definitely trying this out this weekend!) I am always looking for ways to spruce up my home. As a renter I am always cautious about what I hang on the walls. A project like this is not permanent and is renter friendly.

This project lets you be creative with mixing and matching patterns and prints. What a fun way to update a room to make it look new! You can pick super cool fabrics here. (I love mix and matching.) Add pops of color and you have your own master piece! This project will have all your guests talking about how amazing the room looks with your wall art. (Its up to you if you want to tell them how you did it!)

Now lets get started! Here is what you will need;

  • Canvases in various sizes. How many is up to you. It depends how much wall space you have. You would want at-least 2-3  different sizes.
  • Fabrics! How many you want is up to you. You would want about 2-3 different fabrics which you can find here.
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Hot glue gun / hot glue
  • Staples / staple gun

Step by Step instructions can be found here !

A simple project like this one can transform a room. If you are looking to add a little something to a room in your house without breaking the bank, this project is for you!

ENJOY!

Game On!

Today’s blog post is on behalf of our new employee, Briana! Enjoy!

It’s officially fall, which means football season is here! Being a local New Jersey girl, I have to root for the New York Jets. (Let’s see what this season brings…) Sundays spent with friends, family, good food, & a big screen TV is one of my favorite weekend activities!

Sometimes I like to switch it up and step away from watching the big game. I was looking for ways to stay active and involved during the season. What better way to show support for your favorite NFL team than to make a fabric football for the kids?

These fabric footballs are super simple and will feature the team fabric of your choice! Below is step-by-step instructions on how to make this at-home craft. I have included instructions as well as the football-shaped pattern for you to use. You can create your own of course if you would like a larger or smaller piece. Be sure to check out our wide selection of officially license NFL team fabrics by Fabric Traditions! Available at the Fabric Textile Products, Inc. webstore!

Happy Sunday everyone! Today is Major League Baseball’s Opening Day! I am super excited for baseball season to begin and hoping to see my San Francisco Giants win another World Series title this year! (We could have another Orange October!)

Be sure to catch the first game of the regular season tonight when the St. Louis Cardinals visit the Chicago Cubs at the recently-renovated Wrigley Field. Since today is the Easter holiday as well, many games are scheduled to be played tomorrow.

A fresh start seams like fun!

It’s hard to believe that we are already half way into the first month of the new year! As each new year begins we make promises to ourselves to make better choices, get healthy, rid ourselves of negativity, and start fresh. Why do these resolutions need to focus on the negatives? Instead, why not focus on the positives and promise to do more of something we enjoy? It’s not too late to get going on those resolutions!

If your resolution is to sew more, why not take a stab at a new quilting project? They are a great group activity and make a beautiful gift for family, friends, and loved ones. Get the girls together for a quiet night in – complete with wine, snacks, and quilting! Take all of those college t-shirts your son has stocked his closet with and turn them into a special graduation gift. Is there a new baby on the way? A personalized baby blanket is the warmest of welcomes. The options and possibilities are endless.

Not sure where to begin? We are here to help! One of our favorite fabric companies is Quilting Treasures. They have a wide range of fabrics from licensed characters, florals, basics, novelty prints, and so much more. They offer FREE project sheets on their site featuring their prints. It’s an excellent tool and we suggest checking it out. We absolutely love their Seams Like Fun collection by Denise Urban. The complete project sheet with step-by-step instructions can be downloaded at the Quilting Treasures website or by clicking on the photo below. Also featured in the project is their Lola Textures blender collection.
