Michael's Craft Stores are Carrying Fabrics!

Not all of them but many of Michael’s Craft Stores are carrying Fabric!! That is a good thing, that means there are more of us sewing!!! I live in a small town, there is only one fabric shop and well, I think we are lucky to even have that. Walmart here does carry fabrics but their selection is very small. If I want to go to Jo Ann’s, I travel 45 minutes to get there one way. So when I saw fabric being stocked in the Michael’s, I was super happy! Plus the colors and designs are very nice because it is produced from Westminster Fibers under the name Top Draw. I recently came across Jayme Marie's Blog, I believe she may have designed it!
The price is about what you will pay online for designer prints but Michael’s aways has printable coupons. It is just nice to know that if I have make something fast, I have another fabric choice! Here is one of my favorite shopping sites Printable Coupons. You can find not only coupons for Michael’s but other great stores too.
Happy Shopping!

Thanks for sharing! I think this is great. We have a tiny WalMart and it carries precut fabric. It's okay for some projects, but for others I have to drive 60 miles one way to Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, Hancock's and now Michael's to get fabric. :)

Our hancocks carries that same line. I like it, just a bit pricey without the coupon (IMO). I've used quite a bit of the orange/aqua fabric. It's really good quality fabric.

I had no idea that Michael's was offering fabric! I will check that out when a troublesome detour (that adds 30 minutes to a 40 minute trip) closes.

Sweet Coin Purse Tutorial for Teacher Gifts

This time of year is so special to me because I get to show my gratitude for all of the hard work that goes into teaching my daughters. I love to make handmade gifts and this year is no exception. Since money does not grow on trees around here, I looked at my stash (I keep my scraps in hat boxes ) and tried to see what I had a lot of; small zippers, trims, Peltex strips ( from making iPad cases ), fabric scraps and some hardware for key fobs. So I set to work.  Materials: Plastic multipurpose 5" Zipper  Fabric Scraps Lightweight interfacing 808 Pellon Trims (We clipped  key fobs  with 1.5" swivel hooks onto our coin purses . There are tons of tutorials on making key fobs .) Step 1: Print out the Coin Purse Template  PDF.  Cut 2 main fabric, cut 2 lining and 2 interfacing using the template.  Optional: Cut a 2"X2" square of your choice main fabric or lining. This strip of fabric is used to clip a key fob to your coin purse later. We used a 1.5
