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!

We’re All Mad About Plaid This Season!

My favorite time of the year is the fall. I love photographing the changing leaves, going apple and pumpkin picking with my friends, drinking copious amounts of pumpkin spice lattes, thanksgiving dinner with my family, and of course, the fall fashion. Sweaters. Moccasins. Boots. Scarves. Flannel shirts. Skinny jeans. You name it and I most likely have it in my closet. Every year we see a new trend emerge in terms of the types of prints we can expect to see. This goes for apparel, shoes, accessories, home decor, linens, fabric, napery, and more. Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs, &  Alexander Wang all included several plaid pieces in their fall 2015 collections. If one thing’s for sure, we’re mad about plaid this season!

Whether it’s a shirt, lounge pants, a handbag, a phone case, or anything else you can think of, I most likely have a plaid style in my possession. Seriously though. It looks like I raided Kurt Cobain’s closet. It’s my favorite print! (How many people do you know that actually have a favorite print?) I even have a red plaid hair bow. I’m obsessed! I thought since plaid is super hot this season, I would share a little bit about the types and styles out there. Believe it or not, Cher Horowitz rocked at least 53 different plaid styles in 1995″s Clueless.  Plaid is an under-appreciated print and I plan to show it a little extra love this season by highlighting some of the current items on the market!

Tartan is by far the most common and definitely my favorite. This style originated in Scotland and is usually what comes to mind when we say “plaid”. This style is most often seen with dark colors such as blues, reds, and greens. Below is the beautiful Pembroke Plaid Sheet Set by Pottery Barn.

Windowpane plaid is also quite common this season. The design is simple, yet sophisticated and makes for a handsome suit. This season Old Navy tackled the plaid trend and I am in love with their wool-blend ponchos! The black and white windowpane plaid pairs nicely with a solid knit top underneath.

Glen plaid is very easy to spot! Almost always done in a black and white scheme, this style of plaid is prevalent among tailored suits and more formal attire. This style can be seen year round as with J. Crew’s Glen Plaid Cap-Sleeve dress. It’s clean, classic, and fashionable. Some plaids can be a bit overwhelming, but glen plaid is subtle. I love it!

Buffalo check plaid is my second favorite plaid style. It is said to have originated in the USA around 1850. This black and red style is synonymous with outdoorsmen and gives a very rugged look. Sometimes buffalo check is also referred to as “lumberjack” plaid. Pottery Barn has a large array of buffalo check plaid items this year, but what really grabbed my attention was the Buffalo Check Napkin Set. Normally we think of plaid clothing, but not often table linens. It’s certainly a fun change!

And of course, I had to highlight Fabric Textile Products, Inc. This year we introduced our Country Plaid Napkin Collection! Available in Black, Navy, Red, Taupe, & Grass Green, our country plaid napkins are sure to compliment your fall tables! With my plaid addiction, it was only a matter of time before launching a plaid napery line.

I could go on for hours about plaid. This beloved style seems to be in it for the longhaul. Every so often we see a bit of a “plaid revival” if you wish. Almost all of us own atleast 1 plaid item. I guarantee it. Take a walk through your home. Scan each room. Take a look in your closets. You may be surprised at what you find. From tartan to gingham to madras to windowpane, there is a plaid for everyone!

Warm Regards Always,
