NEW! Magic Pillowcase Kits + GIVEAWAY!

Looking at the calendar today, I noticed that Christmas is only 1 month away from today. One month! It always has a way of sneaking up quickly, doesn't it? It's so easy to put off your holiday projects and gifts and before you know it, it's the week before the gift giving festivities begin! Wouldn't it be great though if you could make a simple little personalized gift this year that you can make in under an hour?

We here at Shabby Fabrics wanted to come up with a neat little kit that you will enjoy making -- and giving! Jennifer was taught a super neat new trick a little while ago and we had our answer. And so, without further ado, we introduce to you our new Magic Pillowcase Kits!

These pillowcases are amazing for many different reasons. They are made with just 3 seams, and the best part is, the seams are all hidden! They use only 3 fabrics, so if you have a fabric with a large print, this is the perfect way to showcase it!

One thing that most of us face during the holidays is the stress of buying gifts that fit your budget. These kits are only $15, so they won't break your piggy bank! These kits are easy and fun to make! We have put together a variety of Kits for you to choose from -- From Christmas to Modern to Children themed, there is sure to be a kit fit for someone you love!

Spectrum Pillows come in 3 colors: Wildberry, Bali, and Chamomille!

Favorite Fabric Friday | Snowflakes

Today, way up here in Northern Idaho, we had our first sighting of snow! With the flurries of soft snowflakes landing quietly on the pavement, designing the winter wonderland that we all know and love, it was hard not to be inspired. Cozy quilts, warm hot cocoa, roaring fires and good books were all on our minds as we worked away.

 As I thought about what to post for our Favorite Fabric Friday, the answer was right there - coming down around us - Snowflakes! Lots and lots of snowflakes! The ladies here at Shabby Fabrics had so much fun picking out their favorite snowflake fabric and dreaming up their holiday project for this year. Here are some of their favorite picks!

Kelsey's pick is Bali Handpaints L2661-004 Black because it's a batik and she loves the different shades of gray.

Lisa, Tracey, AND Shaina's favorite fabrics (they had eyes for only one!) was Flaky Snow Pals 00526. They all loved it for different reasons, however. Lisa thought it was a cute version of a snow flurry and was imagining decorating her home with matching table runners to place holiday candles and such-- what a great idea! Shaina absolutely loves both light blue and snow so it was a perfect fit! And as for Tracey, the fabric reminded her of being snuggled up and warm, reading a book, on a blustery snowy day. Talk about a popular fabric!

My favorite Snowflake fabric is Holiday Flourish 7 14553-091 Crimson. This fabric is just the perfect image of Christmas to me - the vibrant red color with little specs of green. I also love love love that most of the snowflakes are made out of metallic gold! It adds a nice touch of shimmer without being too overwhelming.

Did you know that Shabby Fabrics has a Snowflake category? Check it out as you sit inside, planning out your holiday project! And now, we want to know:

Favorite Fabric Friday | Regent Street Lawns

This week we received the beautiful new collection designed by Sentimental Studios for Moda Fabrics. Regent Street Lawns features a variety of delicate cotton floral and paisley patterns that will make you feel as though you've stepped right off a London street and into a stateside haberdashery!

I asked some of the ladies in the back what their favorite fabric in the collection is and why.. Here is some of the feedback!

Savannah's favorite fabric pick is 32931-12. She loves the simple beauty of the variety of the colors within the design. It has not only blue and dark green colors, but touches of orange, all on a cream background!

Sue's choice of fabric is 32934-14 because it works so well as a blender fabric.

Melanie has TWO favorites! Her favorite fabric is 32931-15 because it's so bright and cheerful. She couldn't get away from the Rose FQ Set as a whole-- this girl sure loves her pink! She is also pleased with the high quality feel to the fabric.

My personal favorite is the 32932-11 fabric. I'm a sucker for daisies and love the mixture of soft pinks and blues with a pop of red! It makes for a very feminine fabric without an overload of pink.

You can find Regent Street Lawns at Shabby Fabrics! We have 4 FQ Sets - Ivory, Rose, Navy, and Blue available as well as yardage. And now, tell us what you think! Which fabric is your favorite and why?
