Pinterest Bundle Contest and Guest Pinner Opportunity

Do you love Pinterest as much as I do? I use it to plan my meals for the week and to get inspired for my sewing projects, home improvement projects and all other things creative! 

We're looking to spruce up our Pinterest page, so we're having a contest to find 1-2 guest pinners that will have dedicated boards to post inspiration and creations to. 


Between March 1-15, we asked our customers to purchase a mystery fabric bundle. Then from the time you get the bundle, till April 1st, make items with everything in your bundle. Submit photos of your creations to info.fabricmart@gmail.com by April 1 and we will be judging for our favorites. Judging will be by popular vote and a panel of Fabric Mart employees, including myself (Julie).

So if you purchased a bundle between March 1-15, get sewing and submit your photos! All the fabric must be used, but you don't have to use it all in the same garment. You can make as many garments as it takes to use each piece from your bundle. The winner will be announced on April 7th.


And guess what? Just for participating, you will receive a $15 gift certificate! You must submit photos of your finished garments and have proof that you purchased a mystery bundle from us during the time period listed above. See details on our website. If you have any questions, email info.fabricmart@gmail.com.

We've done similar mystery bundle challenges during the Fabricista Fashion Challenge. In the first challenge I asked them to create a two-piece garment using the fabric bundle they received. Pretty challenging, but they did a great job! Here's Peggy's finished products: 



I had them do the same challenge during the second season of the Fashion Challenge. Here is what Nakisha came up with:





Not interested in the contest but still love Pinterest? Share your creations directly with us on our "Made from Our Fabric" Board. This board has dozens of customer creations using our fabric. To add your creation to this board, send us an email at info.fabricmart@gmail.com and we will add you to our group board. 

Inspired yet? I hope you will be joining in the fun!

Made by a Fabricista: Coming Up Roses

 From vision to reality. As we are headed into April, I can feel the spring breeze on the horizon and with that means fun time outside, be it eating brunch with friends on a terrace or going to the park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I knew that I wanted to add some bright fun color into my spring wardrobe that I really haven't used and over a year.  I had been eyeing this beautiful red stripe shirting with blue roses fabric for a while not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with it but knew that I was super drawn to it.   Once I picked it up, I decided to sketch out my ideas and went through my pattern stash to see what I could come up with. For this project I used a vintage pattern See & Sew 5549.  It’s actually for a long sleep shirt that I then made some alterations to.  I lengthened the sleeves by an inch and extended the side slits up to the waistline because I knew that I would mostly be wearing this shirt open.  Also since I planned to wear it mostly open I only did

Made by a Fabricista: Use Those Views! Sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank

Spring is here! Honestly, I'm still bundled up in sweatshirts most of the time, but the afternoons are getting glorious and warm and just a t-shirt will suffice for a couple of hours in the warmth on some days so I know the overwhelming heat is not far off. I love planning and organizing in all facets of my life, and spring garments for my wardrobe are on my mind. Naturally tanks are at the forefront of my strategizing for comfort in hot weather and I wanted to branch out with a little something new.  Anyone else have patterns that they've been eyeing for ages but haven't pulled the trigger? Who knows why I've kept putting off sewing the Grainline Studio Willow Tank . I've long admired the simple lines and I'm absolutely sure it would fit into my overall style. I've even tried drafting something similar myself with varying degrees of success, but never quite on the nose. A simple tank can go with just about everything from jeans to skirts to a high-waisted a

Made by a Fabricista: Spring Style Essentials

Is there anything more versatile for your Spring wardrobe than a T-Shirt Dress and a classic button-up blouse? In this Fabric Mart Fabricista blog, I'm going to show you how these two little wardrobe staples can be rotated through your spring me-made wardrobe for 5 different and fun looks!  I was browsing the Fabric Mart website when this lovely 100% Cotton Parchment/Black Striped Jersey Knit Fabric popped up. I’ve been itching to make a T-Shirt dress with the Rebecca Page T-Shirt Dress pattern ever since the pattern launched back in February. As I continued to browse the Fabric Mart website, I was struck by the most lovely Blossom Pink Silk Shantung Shirting that I knew would be perfect for a Grainline Studios Archer Button-Up ! As the wheels started turning, I realized that the cotton jersey paired with the silk shantung shirting fabric would be a match made in heaven for my me-made wardrobe. So naturally, I had to get both fabrics plus the Archer Button-Up pattern! I was not d
