This week we were thrilled to receive the complete collection of Little Apples by Aneela Hoey! We love the autumn-themed novelties and fall colors. In case you missed it, check out the Little Apples Pillow tutorial by Thomas Knauer–it makes excellent use of the cute prints from the group.

And in other news, we’re working furiously on our Handmade Holidays posts for November, as well as a special surprise for October. (You’ll hear about it soon.) We’re still gathering tutorials, recipes, printables and other contributions, but we need your help to make this the best Handmade Holidays ever! So for this week’s Free Fabric Friday, please leave a comment with a link to one of the following:

  • favorite tutorial published no earlier than November, 2010
  • favorite recipe for giftable food published no earlier than November, 2010
  • favorite printable published no earlier than November, 2010
  • favorite shop for great handmade gifts

We’ll draw six names to win one yard of fabric on Monday.

Also, if you have a small business and would like to contribute a giveaway to our Handmade Holidays prize list (see one of the lists from last year), please email with a link to your shop. We’re accepting handmade items and gift certificates with a minimum value of $25. We estimate we’ll receive approximately 2 million page views in November, so this is an excellent opportunity to promote your business.

Have a joyful weekend!
