Amanda Murphy's Nordic Holiday

Hi there everyone - I hope you are having a wonderful spring!  I'm thrilled to be here today guest-posting on Brewer's blog and telling you about my products hitting stores this month!  (And announcing a little sale to boot!)

I was excited to design another modern holiday line - Nordic Holiday - for Contempo Studio for Benartex this year.  This time I opted to go with a more wintry theme, so you can enjoy the projects you make for longer into the year.  Like many of you, I am inspired by Scandinavian style.  From the northern animals to stylized stars, I wanted these fabrics to have big impact, while straddling the line between a modern and traditional aesthetic.

Charmed I'm Sure!


Adding a touch of charm to your favorite handbag, or your kids backpack is made even better when it’s made-by-you! Pairing a fun animal design with EverSewn cork fabric will give you the durability and look of leather, but in an animal/environmentally friendly fabric with lots color choices!

Whether you’re sewing with a machine for the first time, or one thousandth time, or even hand stitching side-by-side with your little one. It’s about the experience of creating something with your own two hands that matters most.

Round Felt Ball Pillow DIY

 Posted by A Beautiful Mess

Pillows are one of my great home décor loves. They are fun to make, and just changing the pillows on a bed or couch can give you a whole new vibe without having to buy a whole new couch too. I’ve seen these round pillows with large balls/poms attached all the way around the edges on Pinterest and been like, “yeeessssss, need to make!” for a while now, so there’s no time like the present, right? Turns out, they were pretty easy to replicate, and I'll show you how I did it!
