LED Lights–perfect for wreaths!

These LED light strands are the perfect way to light up a wreath or other holiday d├ęcor without having to string a cord to the nearest outlet. 

Battery Powered LED lights

Here at my home, we usually have a lit wreath on our front door and it looks great from the outside, but on the inside I have this ugly cord that hangs from the door to the outlet on the wall.  Such an eyesore.  But this year we got these battery powered LED lights in the shop and it solved my problem! 

Each strand is 60” long and has 20 bright, long-lasting LED lights.  One strand uses only three AA batteries!  Right now we have these lights on sale:

1 strand for $8.98
2 strands for $7.98 each
3 or more for $6.98 each.

We've even used these lights to add sparkle to a holiday wall hanging.  Just think of all the creative uses for these fun little light strands!

This cute tote bag pattern was designed by our very own Carol Lawson!  I just love the silhouette of this bag – and it has plenty of pockets, like a great bag should!

More, and More Precuts!

We have a crazy amount of new precuts here at The Fabric Mill.  I’m going to show you some of them today, but first I want to start with this book -

Perfect Quilts from Precut Fabrics book

It’s called Perfect Quilts for Precut Fabrics and it is FULL of some great ideas!  Every pattern in the book (there’s 64!!) uses a precut of some type – either fat quarters, charm squares, jelly rolls or layer cakes.  This is one. thick. book!  (The book is $28.95)

Ok, now to show you some of the precuts!  How great of a gift would that book be, along with a jelly roll or charm pack?  I’d love to find that under the tree (*hint, hint honey*)

The Year of the Ninja

The Year of the Ninja is a new fabric line from Riley Blake.  These fabrics would be great for any project for those 9-12 aged boys who are often tough to sew for.  In fact, both my boys need new pajama pants this year.  I’ll use the little ninjas for my youngest son, and the throwing star print for my oldest.  Perfect!

Year of the Ninja

How about some other gift ideas for that age group?  (click on the word to go to the tutorial)  What about an ipad cover, a pillowcase, a necktie, a lunch money cuff, a drawstring backpack, On the go reading pillow, or a snap-shut pencil case.  Any of those would be so great in these Ninja fabrics!

Are you heading out of town for Thanksgiving this year, or staying home and hosting the party?  Well either way I have a great idea for you!  Every hostess loves a fresh, new apron to work in.  If you’re heading to someone else’s home for dinner this year, why not take a new apron with you as a thoughtful hostess gift?  And if you’ll be staying home and doing the cooking, why not treat yourself to a new apron?

Apple Pie Apron pattern

We have dozens of cute apron patterns here at the shop, and plenty of fabrics to choose from.  Want a fun and trendy apron?  How about a pretty flowery one?  Need a more manly version for the guys who help in the kitchen?  (We have ninja fabrics – or maybe a classy stripe is more his style!)  Stop by and grab what you need – you still have time to whip up a new apron!

To see more of the aprons we have in the store, click here.  The apron pictured above is called the “Apple Pie” apron and it’s one of our faves!
