To kick off February as National Embroidery Month, this week’s Friday Surprise Prize was a Sublime Stitching: CAMP OUT Embroidery Pattern. A 8.5×11 sheet of multi-imprinting, iron-on embroidery patterns. And it’s freaking adorable!

And the winner is…Ouiser on the Bacon Cheddar Biscuits post who said: Heck yeah you can add bacon to anything. My daughter got the Melissa & Doug sushi play set for Christmas and was instantly obsessed with sushi. She begged me to make it. From experience, I knew that the first time she had it, there needed to be something familiar…something beloved. And by jove… I put bacon in those sushi rolls.

Umm, okay, bacon on sushi – had NEVER crossed my mind, but sounds AMAZ! Go ahead and send us your address using the contact form and we will send you your prize. Winners have 5 days to contact us before forfeiting their prize to another lucky reader.

EEEk!  A whole yard of the new Dan Stiles fabric from FABRICWORM!  Y’all know we get all of our fabric from fabricworm, it’s the best fabric site on the web. Well, this week I’ve decided to share the love with a whole entire yard of this gorg fabric. It is Dan Stiles Marine For Birch Fabrics, it’s 100% Organic, and the pattern is called Whale Love. We love it!

Look at the purse that Cynthia, owner of Fabricworm, made with this fabric:

Adorbs. So what would you make?  Leave us tons of comments all week, we will pick our favorite next Friday and send you your yard of gorg fabric.




I just bought some of this same line in fat quarters to make a baby quilt – I would love to have a little more to work with!


I have no idea. That's my honest answer. But I would be so excited !! I would probably poll my bloggers for ideas, which is equally exciting.

when i have time

my fam lives in co,but are from ca.this whale fabric would sew up nicely into a sweet retro apron(maybe with some orange bias tape).I think whales in the kitchen would be a nice way to remember growing up by the beach.


Holy Cow- I just saw this. Where have I been?! Love it. Maybe a whale stuffed animal and/or one of those "Stuffed" wall hangings. I know know what they are called but you stretch it over canvas and then stuff an image into it. This probably isn't making any sense. That bag is seriously cute too. Maybe a throw pillow for the peanut's room…. too many options. I think it might create paralysis by analysis (in a good way!)


I always LOVE this fabric!!! If i have those I will make 2 drawstring bags for my 5 year olds twin to carry their swim stuff when going to pawpa's house to swim..(me bad..I just put in their suit in a roll up towel and when they get there their clothes is all over the deck) This is bright, cheerful, and colorful and keep in all in one place..perfect likes orange and the other likes blue…


Love this fabric…and your website. I just found it yesterday and have not been able to get off of it! LOL! I am making a few little dresses for a baby shower for a friend at church…this would be so cute o add to it!


What a cute fabric! I would make something nice from it, for my newborn cousin! (only a couple of hours old by now!)


I love that whale fabric and think it looks like a snappy toddler summer dress, or a one shoulder dress for my girl! (I'd make babes a dress forsure)

I want to believe I'd make pajama pants out of it for myself, or possibly my kids. Really though, I'd probably just stare at it, snuggle it and love it as my grown-up lovey.


I would make a beach blanket. I have some blue cotton laminate that I could use as the underside that would lay on the sand. My little girl will be the PERFECT age for her first trip to the beach this summer.
