{Fabric Friday} Earth Day Favorite…

 
Happy Earth Day! On this Fabric Friday, it seemed perfect to feature one of my favorite eco- conscious fabric designers/makers, Umbrella Prints. I discovered this lovely fabric last year & it continues to be on my top 5 list. Amy & Carly’s gorgeous fabric is printed by hand  on hemp & organic cottons, with water based, solvent free inks.

The palette & imagery used, is beautiful & truly able to inspire any sort of project. There is also exciting news for you quilters out there. Umbrella Prints has some new quilting weight fabric called “Oasis” that will be out in May! You can pre-order it on the Umbrella Prints Etsy site now.

Pop by Amy Prior’s blog for more inspiration & beautiful photos here. It’s one of my favorites. All photos used for this post are from her blog & etsy shop. Happy Fabric Friday! Hope you all have a wonderful Easter Weekend!

{Fabric Friday} what’s in the box?

There was a lovely package at my door yesterday from purlsoho. It’s one of my favorite fabric stores and it’s always a good day when I get to open a box with their logo on the top. I have been ordering lots of little batches of fabric lately from all sorts of places and thought I would share two of the new stashes that I received this week (more to come next week).

I liked how this stack looked together. It seems like a winter bundle. I’m stocking up on my Michael Miller organic fleece & sherpa (for my plush slug antennae). There is also some Alexander Henry for Home- Carolina black & Bebe along with some Cloud9 beyond the Sea Urchin. I have specific klt:plans for all of these. 

These two fabrics just called out to me. I have some ideas of how to use them- but nothing specific. The orange one is from Anthropology Fabrics and the fabric with text is from the Kumiko Fujita Collection- Yuwa fabrics. 

My plan is to start cutting into this big stack this weekend. Happy Fabric Friday! What are your plans this weekend?

{Fabric Friday} Dreamy space & lovely fabric …

We live in a small town about an hour north of Seattle. Unfortunately, great fabric stores are hard to come by (there aren’t any). So, I order almost all of my fabrics online. For a tactile person, this method of fabric browsing & purchasing isn’t the most gratifying. On our little getaway to Seattle on Monday, we stopped by one of my recent discoveries, a gorgeous fabric store called Fabric Crush. This lovely shop is in a remodeled elementary school building that was originally built in 1904. It’s now called Wallingford Center and it houses sweet little shops & businesses. I found Fabric Crush earlier this year when we took Sayer to get a haircut in a fun little salon for kids. It was a great day for everyone. Across from the fabric shop is a wonderful toy store, and down the way… yummy cupcakes!  What I love about Fabric Crush is that it is uncluttered, spacious, has amazing natural light, carries a gorgeous variety of current fabrics, and the people are knowledgeable and passionate about fabric. I was glad to have my iphone with me during my last visit -so that I could share the space with you.


I was really pleased to see that Robert Kaufman’s new organic collection of fabrics was in the store and I quickly snatched up 3 gorgeous designs. I also snagged a few Kokka florals and some nostalgic, navy & white striped ticking (that reminds me of an old pillow or mattress). After adding to my klt:fabric stash, Chris and I went across the hall and lost ourselves in the land of toys. Of course we had to bring something fun home for kiddo. What a great day Chris and I had on Monday- new spex, fancy coffee drinks, vintage junk shops, inspirational fabrics, and holding hands in the streets of Seattle. Happy Fabric Friday everyone!

{Earth Day} a little something from klt:works…

Happy Earth Day everyone! 

Being eco-friendly is something that is important to me. Over the years, I have found some great companies to work with such as Alternative Apparel, American Apparel, & Enviro-tote to help me offer some eco-conscious options at klt:works. Organic & eco-tees, and recycled totes are always available at klt:works and I want to offer up a little extra savings on those items today. Until midnight tonight (PST), you can receive a 25% refund (via Pay Pal) off your order by using the word “Earth” at checkout either here or here.








So, enjoy celebrating the earth a little extra today. I think I am going to go frolic in a puddle or just sit in a tractor tire for a spell. How are you going to celebrate Earth Day?
Just a little side note: I love the scarf that I am wearing in the picture (perfect for NW weather). You can find it at Redbird Style– Robin makes some great things!
