Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Congrats to our Fabric Giveaway winners ~ Sally T., Teela F. & Penny W.! I mailed your fabric today so you should get it by the weekend! Since the comment response was so fabulous, we also drew a few Applique Cafe winners ($10 voucher code) ~ Judy P., Sarah and Anna!  The fabric winners also received a voucher code. Thanks to all of you who took the time to read my blog, Like The Sewing Room on Facebook and comment! Michael Miller and Riley Blake should have NO WORRIES. Recession or not, these guys are sellin’ some fabric! Moda, Robert Kaufman and a few others aren’t eatin’ Ramen noodles either!

Here are a few more great fabrics from The Sewing Room. LOVE the tone-on-tone pink Chevron (Riley Blake)!

Some great dots, love the aqua swirly fabric (I’m thinking snowman patch) and more Chevron!

Tone on tone Chevrons from Riley Blake.

They also have this great leather. I have not used it yet but it would be great for football designs!

Here are a couple of shirts I did yesterday. Another toolbox! This will go with some red cord and blue gingham pants.

What do you do if you want to put Santa on a white shirt? Put him on a PATCH! This is our circle patch. Actually, most anything looks cute on a patch!

 This is our Santa design. I used white chenille for the hat trim and white minky dot on the beard.  I get asked a lot if I use Heat N Bond Lite on minky fabric. The answer is: Yes I do! I iron it on lightly, peel the paper away and place it down for the design. When I got done with this shirt yesterday, I ironed over the gingham and head of Santa on this design and then ironed it inside out to “fuse” the beard. As you can see no dots disappeared.

Back to sampling some new Applique Cafe designs. Remember our Fall Sale is going on through Thursday, November 1st. 40% off Halloween & Thanksgiving designs and 25% off everything else.
