Disclosure: I received samples and a gift card to try out Michaels new fabric line; however, all excitement and opinions are my own!
Hi friends! If you’re a crafter, I have some FUN and amazing news to share with you today – Michaels, North America’s largest specialty retailer of arts, crafts, framing, floral, wall décor and seasonal merchandise, is now selling FABRIC! Yes you heard me right, they have now added pre-cut craft fabric to the thousands of creative products available in their stores, providing you with one-stop shopping for your DIY projects. As an avid crafter, this is fantastic news to me! What do you think, are you as excited as I am?
The new pre-cut fabric line includes cotton, canvas, burlap, felt, faux fur, crushed velvet and tulle, and will be available in a variety of sizes from a half-yard to 2 yards. The pre-cut fabric will be carried in the majority of U.S. and Canada stores. Just imagine all of the projects and crafting you could do with ready, available, fun-to-use fabrics! Tulle is a favorite of mine to work with. And burlap? Need I even say more? I’m already thinking of all the projects that I can create and link up at my friend Karianne’s new site, Burlap Projects!
Need some inspiration to get those fabric crafting projects going? Michaels.com and Michaels Pinterest Boards feature project ideas that use fabric, including throw pillows, lamp shades,chair seat covers, and bracelets. Laminated burlap, a Michaels limited exclusive, can be fed through most home printers to add personalized messages and images to fabric projects.
And guess what? I received a sampling of their new product to test out over the next week. Oh darn, guess I need to make something fabulous! I’m so excited to create with these fun materials. What do you think I should make? Give me your burlap and canvas project ideas! And be sure to check back SOON to see what I create! In the meantime, get over to Michaels and pick up some fabulous fabric of your own! I can’t wait to see what you make. If you create something, be sure to share it with us!
