Fantastic new fabric for your projects!

on November 26 | in Products | by | with 60 Comments

Sorry to interrupt our regular holiday programming, but I have to tell you about some amazing new fabric….

Admittedly, Lauren and I get giddy any time the UPS guy drives up, but this time we were actually counting the days until our order arrived.

AH just released a new collection, Fashion for the Home. As the name implies, it is home-dec weight cotton, which they are calling “oxford” but feels to me more like denim. It is 8.7 oz per square yard, which is nice and sturdy, but not too, too heavy. It is 45″ wide. This fabric would be absolutely perfect for grocery totes! (They’re on your to-make list, right?) It would also be wonderful for winter-weight skirts, pillows, pot holders, placemats, aprons…oh, just about anything! And just check out the prints–fabulous is all I can say. If you are making something that requires a fabric a little heavier than quilt-weight cotton, this is a wonderful option.

  50. Beth Workman says:

    When I was a kid, we had a couch covered with fabric just like the orange and brown floral. It was my favorite spot in the house. When my parents ditched it, I protested and sat on it while it was out on the curb!!! I don’t know if I’d cover a couch with it now, but I may have to get some just for nostalgia sake.
