urban sew + giveaway

Welcome to Giveaway Week! Each season, the week before KCW is reserved for showcasing some fantastic shops and giving away some fantastic goods! This week we have old favorites and new favorites too. Be sure to enter all the giveaways, because you never know when it will be your lucky day!

You might not recognized the name Urban Sew, but I bet you remember (and probably bought some fabric from) The Fabric Stash. They have retooled their company with a new name, new logo, and a new site. They still have the same great fabric and lots of other goodies as well. I’ll let Janice tell you a bit about their company:

We are a small, family run on-line shop  – I do the buying and sewing, my husband does the website, and our 5 year old does the modeling!  We carry a variety of modern fabric (including Cotton + Steel, Kokka, Robert Kaufman, Cloud 9, Yuwa, Westminster and more) and patterns, and are adding products all the time.  We recently did a survey of our customers, and based on the results are adding more knits, solids, and patterns.  We try to listen to our customers!  We send a newsletter about once a month with all our specials and new stock – and generally include a coupon code or new sale items for the bargain hunters.   We are slowly growing to where we envision our shop – it’s a building process for sure!

It’s amazing to watch a small company grow and prosper knowing you had a small part in it (by purchasing delicious fabrics).

1. Scirocco dress pattern by Figgy’s 2. musical mushrooms 3. far far away yellow frog prince 4. yellow and blue dots 5. black and white tiger stripes 

Urban Sew has goods for sewing for your kids, sewing for yourself, and quilters and bag-makers too. I picked a few of my favorite patterns and paired them with lovely fabrics–sticking with the WILD THINGS theme for fun.  All the patterns, notions, and fabrics can be purchased from Urban Sew.

Figgy’s Scirocco dress has been on my list of things to sew forever. It would look stunning in Musical Mushrooms by Westex Japanese Fabrics. It features swans, squirrels, bears, bats, and birds singing together in a fairy tale land.  Heather Ross’ yellow frog prince print from her beloved Far Far Away line would make a perfect springtime frock.

1. Field trips cargo pants and raglan shirt by Oliver + S 2. double knit olive 3. echino bees in blue and green 4. charms sheep, mustard 5. double knit teal

Of course I could never forget the boys. Urban Sew carries gorgeous colors of Ponte de Roma double knit–a luxurious knit and sturdy knit perfect for rough and tumble boys. The raglan tee from Oliver + S is my all-time favorite t-shirt pattern. It would look great in olive or teal or both! If the top is a solid color, why not go crazy with the pants? Echino Bees would be fantastic! Or sheep from Ellen Luckett Baker’s Charms collection! If you can’t wear crazy pants when you are a kid, when can you wear them?

1. Poolside tote by noodlehead 2. summer night lights twilight 3. echino bees in orange and black 4. boho basic rain 5. black and white ghost bunny 

While I know this isn’t keeping with the Kid’s Clothes Week theme, I do know a big bag is perfect for spring picnics, or special trips to the zoo, or everyday adventures. Wouldn’t the Poolside Tote by Anna from Noodlehead look stunning in the new Cotton + Steel fabric ghost bunny?!  There are so, so many gorgeous fabrics at Urban Sew!

    There are so many lovely fabric! When it comes to prints, I Always like basics ‘with a twist’, crosses, dots, stripes, but not completely ‘normal’ Does that make sense? It does to me 🙂

    I’m a big fan of Urban Sew. I just got an order of ponte, chambray, double gauze and quilting cotton from them.  The service is fantastic: they sent me swatches of ponte that I washed the snot out and they don’t pill. I hope they increase their stock of high quality knits!

    keen on the knits – they’re so hard to find in stores.  And I’m just finishing up Figgy’s zephyr romper so feeling a little more confident in my ability to manage them!!

    I actually like the selection, great that there’s more than just quilting fabrics. Chambrays in more colors, maybe voile or other garment fabrics could be lovely add-ons. 🙂

    I am mostly interested in quilting cottons and you have a lovely selection.  The Kokka prints are very cute and not something I’ve used before and the Yuwa telephones print is fabulous!  I’ve been trying to add some low volume and text prints to my stash, so I’m often on the lookout for them.

    Oh my, what I saw there was delicious! I love fabric and notions. One thing I’d like to see more of is fabrics by Kaffe Fassett…there were only 2 solid cottons shown on my stop.

  7. Jennifer

    I’m drooling over all the lovely fabric and pattern ideas! Where to start?!  I love knits that are interesting without being juvenile, and fabric in general that is classic, yet fun.  The best pieces are made when the pattern and fabric “fit” together.
