I promised you a little how to on the pressing board I made a few weeks back, didn't I? Well, today you can find that tutorial over on the Dear Stella blog so go on over and check it out.
I used a really cool sewing themed print from the do-it-yourself collection from Dear Stella (you can get it from Fat Quarter Shop). I really do like their fabrics, the designs are always well thought out, the fabric is printed on a really nice cotton (I'm guessing a similar if not the same cotton as Timeless treasures fabrics, because the companies are linked and they do have a similar handle, I think) the colours are good (the brights are bright and the pastels are pastel - that might sound obvious but it's so easy to get wrong) and they wash well, plus everyone that I have ever met or dealt with from the company has been fantastic, and I love that. I often think if their online marketing was more aggressive they'd be far more commonplace and everyone would be using them all of the time. I would bet you a beverage of your choice that you can name pretty much all of the new collections for some manufacturers and probably only 1 or 2 Dear Stella collections. So I'd like you to go and check out all of the fabric lines they have out right now - you can find them on the Dear Stella website, and also keep your eye on the blog for news and fun stuff.
Do-it-yourself is likely to be huge, because we sewing types love a sewing themed print, don't we?
Anyhoo - I've waffled on enough, go check out the tute at Dear Stella. And head to Fat Quarter Shop and buy up a ton of it, because you need a pressing board, and patchwork curtains for your sewing room (I'm on with those) and a do-it-yourself social tote (check it out - how bad do you want one?!) and every other thing you can think of, right?
