A Look at a New-To-Us Designer...

We are loving some of the fabrics from a new-to-us designer, Maiyet. 

Maiyet is a luxury brand based in New York City. Their fabrics are sourced throughout the world and they partner with global artisans to create handmade pieces. A majority of their garments are made in the heart of the NY garment district. They also partner with NEST, a not-for-profit organization which trains and develops artisan businesses.

Acquiring fabric from a brand such as this is hard to come by. When we get fabric from designers, I love going on the hunt for the garment that was made from the fabric. When you buy out a designer lot of fabric, you may get current fabrics and you may get fabrics from seasons past. Either way, the fabrics are lovely! 

Here are some of my favorites:









Great coordinate for the Boucle fabric. Use it as a lining, a shell, dress or slip.

DIY Tutorial: Infinity Scarves

Have a person on your gift list, but have no idea what to get for them? Making a gift is the perfect idea and it will be even more thoughtful than a silly little gift they don't really want anyway.
Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
