Easy Weekend embodies all that a casual, unscheduled Summer weekend has to offer. Watch the natural world unfold from the inside out, from a thriving houseplant to a flock of birds gliding overhead, then transition the day to night with an evening stroll and the glimpse of a pink moon rising. Easy Weekend wants you to relax into life’s overlooked things, appreciating every natural wonder, big or small.

Now in Stores | Spring Riviére by Kate Merritt
Spring Riviére was inspired by the beautiful River Marne where Kate lives in France. She loves to go for walks along the river to seek floral inspiration for her patterns, and immerse herself in nature.
Now in Stores | Ed Emberley Favorites
You may remember these prints from a few years ago. We’ve missed them, and so did many of you. We’re so happy to welcome back some of the best from Ed Emberley!
Now in Stores | Dolittles by Cloud9 Fabrics
Soft colors and adorable animals make this collection a necessity. Printed on our ever so plush cotton flannel, these sweet creatures make the best cozy apparel or blankets you could imagine. They’re so great in fact, that we decided to add the same prints on quilter’s weight. The options are endless! Included in this collection are 4 solids, each in flannel and quilter’s weight, that coordinate perfectly with the three prints.

Make it Sew | Stitched Valentines
This is a simple idea that’s full of possibilities. They could be made for any holiday or occasion. What’s really wonderful though is that it’s perfect for scraps and your little sewists. The directions are vague which is nice because it leaves room for interpretation. We had 4″ envelopes so we worked backwards from there.
Mo Willems’ Knuffle Bunny was a great fabric to use for young ones since it combines a favorite character and hearts!
1. We printed out some sayings for a computer onto a stiff paper stock. This isn’t necessary, since you can always handwrite your Valentine’s Day wishes. As for size, we made the paper portion smaller so we could use fabric as a frame. So in this case, the finished size is for a 4″ envelope and the paper squares are about 3″ leaving 1″ in fabric border.
2. We cut fabric scraps roughly at about 5″ squares – enough so we didn’t have to line things up too strictly before sewing. Layering fabrics wrong sides together and placed the paper on top. We did not pin things because we didn’t want to leave a mark in the paper, but you could use spray glues if thought it would help for littler hands.
* We took the extra step in adding a layer of white fabric between the prints so they wouldn’t show though.
3. Using any stitch you like and sewing with the paper facing up, stitch around the edge of the paper. Trim loose ends.
4. Finally, trim the fabrics to the desired size with pinking shears.
5. For a finishing touch, we added fabric “stamps”.
