Stash's Art Gallery Remix Curated by Mister Domestic

Hey there, makers!

It’s already been a few days since we got back from Quilt Market and we’re reminiscing over all the fun we had! Especially, since our AGF Sewcialite, Mister Domestic attended Quilt Market with us for the first time! To see what a blast we had with Mathew, check out all the interviews he hosted with our designers on Facebook.

Since we’re on the subject of Mister Domestic (because he’s always fun to talk about :D), I’m excited to share a new collab between Mathew, Stash Fabrics, and AGF. Stash Fabrics is re-introducing the Art Gallery Remix! You’re probably wondering what an Art Gallery Remix even means… Well, let me start from the beginning.

Stash Art Gallery Fabrics Remix

A year ago Mister Domestic participated in Stash’s Design Star competition. Popular bloggers and makers were asked to curate fabric bundles with a variety of prints and people were able to vote for their favorites. Since Mister Domestic is all #AGFforLife he curated all his bundles with AGF and ended up winning the competition. Cool, right?!

Stash loved everything that Mathew put together that they invited him to curate all the bundles of their AGF Remix Club. Each month he’ll curate an AGF bundle with 16 prints for everyone to have fun mixing and matching prints!

Here’s how to be part of the club:

  1. You can sign up to receive a Fat Quarter Bundle for $39.50/month + shipping
  2. OR You can sign up to receive a Half Yard Bundle for $69.50/month + shipping

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? To get the whole scoop about the AGF Remix Club visit the Stash Fabrics website. To receive the bundle from the first month, make sure to sign up before June 10th. Bundles will be arriving at your door by mid June. :D

 

Happy Sewing!

If you have been following along the canvas posts series you pretty much know the most important things you need to know about AGF Canvas fabric! Today, I will basically summarize all the juicy information we talked about in our last posts. 

About two weeks ago, Mister Domestic hosted one episode of "Let's talk fabric" in which he talked about Canvas fabric and some things you need to know about it. So if you are curious on knowing what he said, I invite you to check out the video! Also, I shared two graphics where you will find 5 beautiful bag patterns made with Canvas fabric. The other graphic I shared contains 6 garments made with canvas fabric. PS: Each of the projects I shared are linked to their pattern!

Here are some things you need to remember when sewing with Canvas fabric:

6 Projects You'll Love Made with Pink Fabrics

Hey there, crafty friends and pink lovers!

Do you remember when my friend Ola, revealed the color of February? We spread the news that it was Pink and everyone’s hearts melted! Especially, with February being all about love because of Valentine’s Day. Since we also love how sweet and delicate pink can be, we decided to share our devotion for this color by sharing some awesome projects you can make with this month’s ColorFun prints.

Now, let’s talk about these cute projects.

  1. Garland Featuring Pandalicious Fabrics

I love how Alisa from the blog A Stitch in Between created this delicate garland that can be used to decorate a girl’s bedroom or a fun birthday party. The pink cherry blossom fabric from Pandalicious Fabrics by Katarina Roccella really makes the little lantern shapes stand out!

  1. Misses’ Keyhole-Closure Tank Top

Ok, so what’s better than snuggling under a cozy quilt? Um… snuggling under it in comfy PJs of course! These cute pair of jammies featuring the pink bunny fabric from Anna Elise by Bari J. are a dream. Plus, they’re made with knits. I dare you to make some and have sweet dreams (click name for pattern)!

Yardage Cheat Sheet

 

Hey there!

When you are new to quilting and sewing knowing the yards/inches gets very confusing. When I started learning how to sew, these terms were like learning another language! Haha! I remember going online and looking for a yardage chart. I wrote down and memorized everything I needed to know. So, to start 2017 by making our lives a bit easier, I decided to make a printable yardage chart. You can hang it in your sewing room as a quick refresher because even if you're an advanced sewist, sometimes you can forget!

Download the yardage chart here.

"Quilt As You Go" Mini Stocking Tutorial

Hello fabulous makers!

As you all know we are only a few days from Christmas day! Isn’t this crazy…time flies! If you’re like me, you’re probably putting all the finishing touches on all your gifts. One thing that drives me crazy about the holidays is that I put so much effort into wrapping gifts nicely, but in the end you just rip everything up. Plus, throwing away all the ripped paper isn’t eco-friendly (I at least try to recycle).

In order to find an alternative to wrapping some of my gifts, I’ve decided to make mini stockings I can give to my friends with small gifts like gift cards, candies, etc. I thought this would be a cute way of presenting my gifts to them while giving them something handmade. And... since we're in South Florida I decided to give my stocking a tropical flair with the vivid fabrics from Here Comes the Fun by Sew Caroline. :)

Here comes the fun stocking

For those of you looking for a cute way of giving presents, I’ve prepared a tutorial on how to make the mini stocking. It’s a fun project where you can use scraps and if you’re a beginner sewist (like me) you can learn the “quilt as you go” technique. Check it out!

I hope you all enjoyed this holiday tutorial!

Happy sewing!
