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: Sewing for Sleeveless Summer

Summer is so close I can taste it! With hot weather on the way, I need to get my sleeveless wardrobe up to date and stocked. I love to pair a breezy tank with shorts, and nothing is easier than throwing on a simple dress and heading out the door to drop off kids at camp or cruise to the beach. When the heat is up, the easier for me to get dressed the better.  With this in mind, I chose to add more woven tanks to my closet. They are cool to wear and not clingy like a knit top can often be. I looked through the ever-growing pattern section of the site, and the dartless aspect of the Megan Nielsen Eucalypt Tank was especially appealing to me.   No darts makes this a rather quick sewing project. The color blocking instructions are great, plus a basic tank is endlessly hackable and thus incredibly useful. I sewed a quick muslin, and then cropped it several inches with a straight hem, and that version is stylish and easy to wear, so there you go! Hack one done.  I wanted to try out a couple

Made By A Fabricista: Peach Skin Penny Dress

Have you ever lost your sewjo, or just taken a long break from sewing after a really hard project? After spending months altering a wedding dress, I just needed a bit of a break from sewing. Alterations are not my cup of tea, so I treated myself to a well-deserved few weeks off. After my sewing hiatus, I was ready to jump back in with a new sewing pattern I hadn't made before. The Sew Over It Penny Dress has been on my "have to make" list for a long time so it seemed like the perfect pattern to help me ease back into my usual sewing routine.  After browsing the Fabric Mart website for the perfect fabric for my Penny Dress, I noticed this beautiful black, shadow blue, and off-white floral peach skin fabric. If you haven't worked with or worn peach skin fabric, you need to get some right away! It is the softest, most delightful fabric ever! It's lightweight and has a beautiful drape, but isn't see-thru! In addition to my peach skin fabric, I also ordered some el

Made By A Fabricista: Shirt dresses are for Summer!

Hey boo!  I hope you are having a great spring/summer.  It was really hot here in Ohio this past week and finally cooled down!  The heat wave is returning though so I had to take advantage of this beautiful weather while it lasts.  I’ve been focused on summer attire and if you don’t know already whose patterns stay at the top of the list for me is, then I will tell you.  The one and only, Mimi G.  I love her style and her patterns always have a great fit!  She always comes out with something new and unique and her summer patterns are just that!   March of this year, I went from working at home as a contractor for L Brands to now an Executive Assistant for a school organization.  That’s all I will say. I don’t need anyone popping up at my job! Lol.  I went from being at home for two years wearing whatever I wanted (usually sweats and or my nightgown) and my hair in a messy bun, to working full-time again in an office.  My office is business professional, so I wanted to make some things
