Inspiration: Decorate a Pumpkin!

Pumpkin decorating has been taken to new levels in the 21st Century! I'm only 26, but when we decorated pumpkins "back in the day", we either painted them or carved out the basic eyes, nose and mouth. Today there are so many different supplies and fresh ideas, that the traditional pumpkin almost seems boring. So here are a few fabric-minded pumpkin decorating ideas to spice up your fall and Halloween decor!

All of these pictures were found on Pinterest.


An elegant pumpkin! We have a wide variety of laces right now.

So sweet! Of course depending on your style and your stash, your pumpkin may look different. Decoupage strips of fabric to a pumpkin for a patchwork look.
Click on the links below for some recommendations:

Don't like the patchwork look? Cut out circles, swirls and more from fabric scraps. Then glue them onto your pumpkin for something a little different.



If you have some old Upholstery tacks laying around, stick them into your pumpkin for an edgy look. If you don't have tacks, why not try some buttons! 

We would love to see how you decorate your pumpkins with sewing-related items.

Happy Saturday All! How have you been coping with this sudden change? 2020 is the year of adjustments and most of us will probably never forget due to the Covid-19. I am in the acceptance phase and the first 2 weeks were challenging for me to cope at first. I honestly adjusted around week 3 and have learned to cope and made the best out of it.


To get my daughter Arielle out of the house after not leaving for a month, I decided that I would make a few pieces that were on my to-make list and convince her to dress up so that I can shoot. She has been begging for a few palazzo pants since January and since we both have been home since March and I had no excuse, I just did it.


Arielle fell in love with the linen I used for my last Fabric Mart make in March and I had promised her that I would use the remaining linen in bright tan here to make her something.



I decided to use Simplicity 8605 palazzo pants to recreate a similar ready to wear pants she had.

It came out perfect and the size ext…

Made by a Fabricista: Flowers for spring

Hello all!  I hope this finds you well and healthy!  As I write this post, I am still WFH and still in need of COMFORT!  Know what I mean?  When I was drooling over FMs catalog and trying to pick out my fabric, I found myself ordering this gorgeous and soft double brushed poly. 
You can see the fabric I used here: double-brushed-jersey-knit Here are some lovely choices too: Double Brushed Poly Choices  Have you tried this fabric yet?  I can't think of anything softer.  


Of course then comes all sorts of dilemmas.  What do I make?  Maxi? Dress?  Tops?  Cardigan?  Pants?  I spent a good week just looking at this and finally came up with separates so I could have some ultimate comfort clothing.  I love the look of jumpsuits, but I remember back in the day getting undressed to use the restroom and that was appealing to me.  I settled for second best and made pants and two different tops.
Here's a link to the pants pattern I used: Pippa pants
And here are the two top patterns I …
