New Fabric, Patterns, and Notions

We got in our Camelot Cottons Star Wars fabric (Click link here.)  My niece has already made a tote bag using the fabric and a pattern from the book Bags, the modern classics : clutches, hobos, satchels & more by Sue Kim. (Click link here.)

Elaine made this "Classmate" pouch following the pattern by Atkinson designs. (Click the link)  She says, "the sewing gods were with me!" as she worked on it.  The bag is great for not only sewing supplies, but can also be used for school supplies or as a makeup case.  A class will be forming so call the shop if you are interested.  

Another new item we have at the store is the Jillily Studio "Poke-A-Dots."  They are sticky thimbles that we have been using a lot around the shop.

The Dorrian Joke of the Week:

There was a midget physic that broke out of jail.  The headline was, "Small Medium at Large."
