Here are the four projects we've done so far with the chef/kitchen group I keep mentioning, which from now on will be known by its proper name "The Daily Special". As you can see, the group came with an apron panel - we lined it and it was extremely easy to make. And, one of the prints
is a stripe, so it will come as no surprise to you that Jan made us a 60 degree runner using that print - super! And, since there were "leftovers" from the runner, we added it to one of our toweling fabrics, threw some rick rack underneath and voila - fun kitchen towel to match your runner. How about a
little caddy for some napkins or just to look cute and catch clutter on your counter? The 4-H'ers were making these fabric trays last week. I had taken home some of the squares from one of the prints to make potholders, but then this came to me! Why not put a square for the bottom of the tray and border it? Turned out pretty cute! We even made some with Christmas prints and gave our neighbors here at Birchwood Center some Merry Christmas treats this week. There are lots of other great prints in this line and lots of other projects you might like to do. They're right by the north door when you come in, so take a look!
Whew...it's been a busy week here at Fab-Etc! We just received the Hoffman Challenge print for 2011 today. It's really gorgeous. And tomorrow I have the last sales rep coming for the year. (I wouldn't want to run out of fabric, you know!) A cute kitty print came today, but I didn't really get much of a chance to check it out.
And then, our BIG deal for the month showed up. I was too busy to do anything but get it set up today. We are now the proud owners of an Accuquilt Studio fabric cutter! Yup, we took the plunge. You'll have to watch for some pretty fun things we'll be cutting up for you. We're still in the planning stages as far as rental of the machine, so stay tuned for your chance to cut your projects super accurately. We have a number of dies now, but will be adding to our collection as the months go on.
Okay...still a few things to do before bedtime. Hope your week has been super so far!
