If you get stumped selecting fabrics for a project or selecting a project for your fabrics, you might be dreaming of short cuts to the sewing machine. Maybe you need to just sit down and get started already! That's were kits come in. They're everything you need, nothing you don't and instructions included. Easy.
One of my sponsor stores, Shabby Fabrics, stocks the largest selection of kits I've ever seen. They're most all cut and created custom for their store. And this weekend you can save 10% off any and all kits with code SFSTITCHED10 now through Midnight (PDT) on Memorial Day!
This Farmhouse quilt is a perfect example of Shabby Fabrics' charming country style. The store is chock full of shabby chic prints and classic sewing projects. In fact, such a kit would make an exciting gift for someone who has been wanting to try out quilting and just needs a push to get started (or re-started).
Been wanting to try applique? Many Shabby Fabrics kits are applique-oriented, like this 56" square Love Birds quilt. Instructions include details for advanced skills like machine blanket stitch applique, free motion machine quilting and trapunto.
And when you're adding your kit to the cart, take a close look at some of the add-in options. Shabby Fabrics often presents tools that would be helpful. For example, the Dresden Plate quilt kit suggests a Prairie Pointer Pressing Tool or Roxanne Glue Baste. Smart!
My personal favorite kits are probably the birthday-oriented ones (runner and pillow). When birthdays don't fall on the same day as celebrations, I'd like to be better at making the real day still feel special. I'm sure I'd win a smile even from my big kids by pulling out something like this to mark their day. And the applique comes already pre-cut! Doesn't get easier than that!
Thanks to Shabby Fabrics for sponsoring this space and for offering to share a discount for their kits. I hope this is just what someone was looking for this weekend. Enjoy!
