  • Tattooed Art Dolls by Mimi Kirchner

    March 10, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    We are crazy enamored with these art dolls made by the uber talented Mimi Kirchner from Boston! She imbibes each doll with amazing spunk and personality…..with a sly nudge towards old-fashioned rag dolls, but with a steampunk twist. We think that her technique of over-dying toile to make tattooed bodies is brilliant! (and yes, Britex carries toile)

  • Tuft a Dining Room Chair Seat

    March 9, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Here is another easy-peasy and inexpensive home decorating project with tons of graphic impact. Theresa from Apartment Therapy and Design Sponge made a tutorial on how to tuft a dining room chair. Wouldn’t this be great in a stark urban geometric black and white print? We love the vintage meets très modern air that tufting provides!

  • Make a Shower Curtain to Jazz Your Nest!

    March 9, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    It is springtime; time to air out your wintery home, scrub, repaint, and gussy up your cozy nest! We love spending hours in the tub soaking in a hot scented bubble-bath, snoozing, and relaxing.....a snazzy easy-to-sew shower curtain (tutorial courtesy of Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous) is great for a fast ‘n chic salle de bain rejuvenation. We like to skip those pesky grommets and sew button-holes instead, and we particularly adore this Japanese-linen retro print (This fabric is available on the 2nd floor of Britex Fabrics! 415-392-2910)

  • Cross-Stitch Fleurs-De-Lys on Your Bed Linens

    February 25, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    I can smell the beginning of springtime in the city; trees are blooming with fragile pink flowers, surly bicycle messengers have risen from their winter rainy slump, and I’ve been eating lunch in Union Square with my shirt sleeves rolled up rakishly. It is time for spring cleaning, but rather than break out the suds, I’ll revive my pillowcases with some cross-stitched borders; a 14th century band sprinkled with fleurs-de-lys will provide a touch of chic to my tired bed linens (graphing courtesy of the talented needlesmith, Rosemary Stecher) Aida cloth is available on Britex Fabrics' 4th floor, and needles and floss is available on our 3rd floor.

  • Sew a Passport Cover

    February 24, 2012 by Britex Fabrics

    Just in time for a restorative getaway to a rock-strewn and balmy Mediterranean island, here is a tutorial from Matt at Design*Sponge for a hand-sewn passport cover. This could be made in either leather, or even faux leather....we love hand-sewing for its meditative nature, and with this case you’ll have plenty of time to daydream about fields of wildflowers, picnics of crusty bread, hard cheese, sticky thyme honey, salty olives, and wine, and lazy afternoon snoozes on a soft blanket.
