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!

First of all, this is Good Natured from Riley Blake.  I love these little foxes that hide in the tree trunks.

Fun with Black and White!

The Golden Age of Hollywood quilt and kit.

If you’ve been in the shop lately you’ve probably noticed this quilt hanging above the register area.  This was our quilt pattern that we had available during the last shop hop.  We have just a couple of quilt kits left for this quilt!  What a great gift this would make for a family who loves movies!

The kit is $42.00 and is available in the shop or by ordering over the phone (801-225-3123).  The finished quilt measures 48” x 60” and the pattern is included in the kit.  (The pattern for the “Golden Age of Hollywood” quilt is also available without the kit and is free with any purchase.)
