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: Summer DIY Print Mixing

Hello Gems! It's still summer and it's a hot one! I'm not a shorts and t-shirts type of gal, as you all may know by now. That is, unless the occasion calls for it of course! I'm more of a casual chic, flirty two piece, with a little bohemian vibe on top type of gal! So you can find me beating the heat in these last days of summer in this cool and comfy backless tiered flounce sundress. Oh, and let's not forget the puff sleeves!  This whole vibe sums up the summer! And nothing says it better than zebra and tribal print! I coordinated the rayon rugged Tribal print crinkle challis with this rayon zebra print challis. These two prints look absolutely amazing together. They are both very drapey fluid fabrics that fair well as summer garments. They are breathable and feel so light and cool against the skin. Challis fabrics make great flounce and it's not too light weight that you have to line it. I absolutely adore both of these prints. Zebra print is one of those pr

Made by a Fabricista: Fast Sews and Cool Summer Fabrics

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm sharing a few things made with my favorite summer fabrics - cotton, linen and rayon - and as an added bonus these are all super quick sews. Each of these projects took me no more than 2-3 hours to sew. My house gets too hot to sew some summer days, so projects I can whip up quickly are great for that limited amount of time that I have.  The first two items I made up as a set, but of course they can also be worn as separates. The top is the I Am Patterns Gaia tank made with a stunningly gorgeous cotton challis. Call me naive but I had no idea cotton challis was even an option! I'd only ever seen challis in rayon. This cotton though is simply a dream to work with, and if you run across it I highly suggest snagging some. The top is a simple V-neck with a facing but what makes it special are the gathers at the shoulder, made by simply adding a bit of ribbon or fabric in a tube. The combination of this pattern with this light cotton fabric is the per

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Ain’t Over Yet

All of my fellow Fabricistas have been looking toward starting their fall wardrobes. But this year, I’m riding my summer vibes right until their official end in mid-September, because I’m doing something a little different: going on a beach vacation after Labor Day! Now is as good a time as any to tackle my first swimsuit, and I have to say, it was a great experience. And of course, I’d need a cover-up too. Fabric Mart had everything I needed to try my hand at a swim suit. I knew I wanted a bright, colorful patterned suit that was more likely to hide any construction flaws, so I picked this really fun nylon/lycra and it just screamed summer fun. Since I wasn’t sure which lining would work best, I ended up picking up the plain black swimsuit fabric to line with, since I read that you can line with swim fabric. It ended up being thicker than I imagined, but for me, I felt like this worked great because the recovery of the two fabrics together is excellent. The fabric is great quality. I
