This is just one of Liberty's many gorgeous prints! Will you get this one? It's a surprise!

We ordered a dozen different prints for these boxes - there were so many fabulous options we just couldn't choose!

Heath blender prints

Need a cotton solid that's not quite so . . . solid? These semi-solid blenders have you covered!

Printed with a subtle crosshatch design, reminiscent of a woven texture, these fun fabrics come in several colors and coordinate with so many tones!

Shop them here!

Poppies and Daisies

This gorgeous print took our breath away! Bright red poppies steal the show, with cheerful daisies adding a touch of freshness.

This poly crepe is soft, draping, and easy to care for.

If you're thinking, "Poly?! Treadle, WHY!" then let us reassure you, this is a delightful, high-quality fabric. A poly crepe is a great alternative to silk for an easy-care garment. It's okay to sweat in it, then throw it in the washing machine!

Plus, our poly fabrics are almost always designer bolt ends, meaning we're giving them a second life and keeping them out of a landfill.

Friday Fun Fact!

It's time for Interfacing Part 2! 

Did you miss Interfacing Part 1 last week? See it here!

Now that we know what interfacing is and when to use it, how to choose the right one? 

First, choose woven or non-woven. Woven interfacings (including knit and weft types) are always best for garments

Use non-woven interfacings for home decor, bags, and crafts. Non-wovens are often too heavy and crisp for garments, and can't withstand repeated washing and wear.

Next, choose fusible or sew-in. Fusible interfacings stick to your fabric with a hot iron. They're easy and convenient to use, but over time the adhesive may fail, and some fabrics may not be able to withstand the high iron temperatures needed for a good fuse.

Sew-in or non-fusible interfacing has no adhesive; you simply baste it into place. Catch it in the seam allowance as you sew to fix permanently in place. It's a little more tedious, but can be more permanent, though sometimes the layers can shift.

Finally, use your fabric's weight as your guide. Your interfacing should always be lighter than your fabric! And a fusible will always get crisper after fusing.

There's even more! Next week we'll share interfacing part 3 with our favorite recommendations!
