My Etsy shop is open again this weekend with some new fabric bundles! There are bundles of three 1-yard cotton/linen fabrics and bundles of two 2-yard cuts of double gauze. I was thinking that two yards is the right amount for clothing and one yard for bags or pillows. There are limited quantities since this is a fabric destash! I’m whittling down my supply to a manageable level so that perhaps I’ll have some space in my sewing room to…I don’t know, sew or something?!

I’ll be opening my Etsy shop for a limited time tomorrow (Friday) starting at noon eastern and closing on Monday at noon. Look for a few designs that might be out of print, plus some new stuff. Everything will be $8 per half yard, but I have at least a few yards of most fabrics listed. Check my shop tomorrow at noon! Here are a few fabrics I’ll have listed from my first Kokka collection, Stamped. Grab them quickly!
You can find a more complete selection of my fabric at the shops listed here.
My friend Laura made these sweet needle-felted sheep for display in my Quilt Market booth. You can buy your very own sheep in her Etsy shop, Felt Jar!
You can see the sheep fabric colorways below. These are printed on cotton/linen blend fabric and the neutral colorway has gold accents. Again, this is from my Charms collection for Kokka which will be shipping to stores in December or January.
This is a little baby quilt made from the double gauze cotton in my upcoming collection for Kokka, Framework. I won’t be at Quilt Market, but I’m sewing a few things and also have some very nice volunteers who are helping me.
I thought I’d share a few links to get you inspired today.

Are you familiar with Daphne’s beautiful Etsy shop, Octopurse? She generously made some bags from my Garden collection for Quilt Market, which sadly were lost or damaged in the mail. But you can see the photos she took above and below. They are such pretty bags! I won’t knock the USPS because this is the first time this has happened to either of us, but I wish it wasn’t for this package! Maybe it will turn up.
And below are some other bags she’s made with my fabric, for sale in her shop now! I especially love the wooden handles. Her bags are perfectly made and very pretty. Go get one!
