Earlier this summer I discovered the lovely website of online fabric shop Hawthorne Threads. The site itself is so far superior to most fabric shop web sites that I started using it as a reference, and I’d find myself there whever browsing for fabric. The shop’s owners are located in upstate NY, but the shop itself is online only.
I signed up for their email newsletter, which they send weekly to announce new fabrics in stock. They also have a weekly giveaway and the occasional Facebook-only contest. I entered one of these and surprise – I won six fat quarters of the (then) highly-anticipated Far Far Away II by Heather Ross. A package arrived two days later, and I’ve been pondering for two months what exactly to do with it.
The felt case for my double-pointed needles has been looking a bit the worse for wear, and so I improvised a quick needle case with two of the pieces. In fact, I even made a travel case on the fly, since my needle case was turning out wider than I needed. I’m considering recovering my small ironing board with two more. That leaves two…what to make? (Do you have a favorite sewing project that uses fat quarters or small pieces? Tell me in the comments!)
Thanks to Charlie and Lindsay at Hawthorne Threads for a most excellent prize. Any guesses as to which shop will receive my next big fabric order?
