Christmas in July: Fabric!!

Happy Monday!

We're entering our last week of Christmas in July and it's time to focus on FABRIC! Christmas and seasonal fabrics are starting to pop up all over the web and in our favorite shops. Here is a selection of a few super cute holiday collections, plus some useful links for your Christmas fabric shopping.


- Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hooey

I love the adorable illustrations (birdies! cloth line!) and the simple coordinates that could be used in a variety of projects. You can purchase this collection at Fat Quarter Shop and Alewives Fabrics.

- Joy by Kate Spain

Kate Spain never fails to please the eye with bold, colorful and modern designs. This little Christmas collection is as joyful as can be! You can purchase these prints at The Intrepid Thread and Fat Quarter Shop.

- Alpine Wonderland by Riley Blake

Alpine Wonderland reminds me of vintage story books and old-timey Christmas cards. The designs are so sweet and old-fashioned without feeling dated. I have found this collection for sale at Fat Quarter Shop and Hawthorne Threads.

- Tinsel by Maude Asbury

Deer, mittens, Christmas trees and argyle... Cuteness! I love the greys and aquas. I found Tinsel at Hawhtorne Threads and Fat Quarter Shop.

- Brrr! by Laurie Wisbrun

I love how unique this collection is! From the furry polar bears to the Scandinavian-influenced flower designs and lacy snowflakes, these fabrics would make some really original holiday projects. Some prints from this collection are available from Hawthorne Threads.

- Dear Mr. Claus by Cosmo Cricket for Moda Fabrics

Last but not least in this Christmas fabric round-up is the wonderfully retro collection Dear Mr. Claus. The prints looks like wrapping paper from our childhood. Remember those Christmas mornings oh so long ago? This collection is available at Fat Quarter Shop (stay tuned for a giveaway right here this week!!) and Fabricworm.

- Gilt Trip Metallic by Dear Stella

I know, I said I was done. But I can't stop before I share this great idea that Keli at Drygoods Design told me: Dear Stella's metallic fabrics would make perfect holiday linens! Wouldn't the navy and gold make a lovely New Year's Eve table runner or fancy cocktail napkins?
