Pillow Fight for a Cause - Organized by Ladybird Ln



I came across this wonderful idea on the Ladybird Ln blog via the KatiCupcake Quilting Co blog and wanted to help spread the word.  It's for a really great cause.  Their goal is to have 100 bright & cheerful pillowcases made to send to the Primary Childrens' Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.  If anyone wants to help out with this great cause, click the links or image above!

They are having a pillow fight contest where some really great prize packs go for the top 4 pillow cases.  THERE IS LOTS MORE INFORMATION ON THE LINKS ABOVE.


Jennifer's Jewels Give-away #11 - Who Wants to WIN some Custom Fabric Labels?

THIS GIVE-AWAY IS CLOSED.


Jennifer's Jewels is my newest Give-away sponsor and has had her Etsy shoppe since 1996!  Her work is fabulous!  I have ordered custom labels from her a few times and have been thoroughly pleased.  THESE ARE HIGH QUALITY LABELS, NOT CHEAP ONES! She is easy to work with and email/convo friendly.  This Give-away is great for those of us that sell things that we sew.  Even if you just sew things as gifts, these would be great for you too.

THIS GIVE-AWAY IS FOR 30 CUSTOM FABRIC LABELS.  I WILL CHOOSE 2 WINNERS!

Below are examples of her work.  She asks that either you choose one of her 128 pre-made designs or have a design you can send her.  So go ahead and look through her designs and see what you like or find/create one to send to her.  YOU CAN CHOOSE SEW-IN OR IRON ON LABELS.

If you choose to send her your own design, she will need a 300dpi JPG or PDF in the size of 1" x 2.5" rectangle or 1.5" square.  I PERSONALLY HAVE ORDERED BOTH SHAPES & LOVE THEM.

Fab Fabric Friday - Week 6

This week I am featuring Prince Charming by Tula Pink.  Fat Quarter Shop recently got these awesome fabrics in and I wanted to show them off.  You can click the images to see the webpages.






I don't have children, but I am seeking lots of nursery items made with these wonderful fabrics:  curtains, rocking chair cover, ottoman cover, wall hanging, canopy hanging above the crib, floor cloth, floor pillows, breast feeding cushion cover, baby diaper hanger, storage bin covers, etc.

WHAT WOULD YALL MAKE?

Make your Own Magazine File Organizers

I was looking for something on Google and accidentally came across these 2 posts for Magazine File Organizers.  They are easy to follow tutorials.  The top picture is by The Cottage Home & shows you how to cover pre-made Magazine Files with fabric.  The bottom picture is by Craft-Therapy & shows you how to make a very sturdy Magazine File out of a FREE USPS Priority Mail box or any other sturdy cardboard box.  

I FIGURE, FOR THOSE OF US THAT DON'T WANT TO SPEND MONEY ON A PRE-MADE MAGAZINE FILE, MAKE YOUR ORGANIZER USING THE BOTTOM TUTORIAL AND COVER IT WITH FABRIC USING THE TOP TUTORIAL.
