We love quality Children's Books--and these 2 new paperback books have adorable pictures and catchy rhymes!
It's a wonderful idea to have a plot involve SEWING and QUILTING--Sweet Gabby shows her little friends TLC as she stitches something special-- and little ones everywhere will be inspired to create something, too!
Each Book comes with a free pattern -- our price -- only $9.99!(Suggested $10.95) (Patterns alone $3)
We have a new Table Runner pattern--"Sew Simple Table Runner" that we are including free in the kits. A cute Hallmark Print is the centerpiece of the runner ! Other than the obvious use--On a Table--I tried it out in some fun, unexpected ways--
Perfect size as a WallHanging above a Twin Bed!
How about a pop of color on the back of a loveseat?
or a nice little Twin Bed Runner to add some holiday cheer to a guest room?
We have a lot of fun with these little metal charms--the connecting rings and little lobster clasp are available, too-- so it's not just about sewing them onto something--ALTHOUGH they do look adorable as mini ornaments on our Christmas Star--
We put silver on the bright tree and gold stars or jingle bells on the traditional tree. Kits are just 13.99!
Confession--I have made several of these canopies and nursing pillow covers--but I'm such a procrastinator that I finished sewing in the nick of time and gave them away before taking pictures! The mama's I have made these for absolutely use them -- and they stitch together so quickly! ENJOY! ---Cindy
is a super easy gift that any new mom would love! I have made many car seat canopies from this very same tutorial at CLUCK CLUCK SEW--
Nursing Pillow Covers in the baby stores are pricey--why not make one for a favorite mom--It's great to have a cute spare --babies drool, spit--the covers get messy! Make one to match the baby quilt! Here's a great tutorial and free pattern download at VANILLA JOY.
Let's take a look at a few of the fabrics at The Dusty Attic that would work well for these projects!
We've had positive feedback from customers who purchased our Grab Bags this past year! We have a new design for our original LARGE Bags and NOW we have a SMALL GrabBag! We have a 'whole lotta fun' filling each bag with a variety of quilt shop goodness! No two bags are exactly the same-- "What might be in one of these bags?" you might be thinking-- Well...it's a secret...a surprise...but we can tell you it MIGHT contain a little fabric--a little kit--notions--pattern--book...packaged attractively in a little shopping bag with tissue paper--ready for giving as a gift to a friend--or yourself!
The ORIGINAL LARGE GrabBags have a guaranteed value of at least $52and sell for just $22. They are packaged in a pretty Rose Shopping Bag with a Gift Tag, Ribbon and small charm accent.
The NEW SMALL GrabBags have a guaranteed value of at least $32and sell for just $15. They are packaged in a fun Butterfly Shopping Bag with a Gift Tag, Ribbon and handmade Flower Pin accent.
