Free iPhone App Saves You Money on Fabric!

For years I’ve carried around a printout of a fabric conversion chart in my purse so that anytime I find a piece of fabric I can’t live without, I’d be able to figure out how much I needed to buy no matter how wide it is.  Say you need two yards of 36″ wide fabric to finish a quilt, but you find the perfect piece in 54″ wide – how much do you need?  Anytime I tried to guess I’d end up with way too much fabric and spend a lot more than needed.  Now I’m super excited that I can trash the ratty piece of paper I’ve been carrying around and replace it with this simple and FREE fabric converter app for my iPhone!  The converter app gives me a simple way to calculate how much fabric I need based on ANY starting length and width – other similar apps are limited to five or even three yard lengths, AND you actually have to PAY for them.  Download your free iPhone app from the iTunes store, or check out the Fabric Converter website for more information.

40% Off One Regular Price Item at Joann Fabrics

If you don’t have all of your back to school sewing finished yet, or if you’re ready to get past that and finally sew something up for yourself, you may want to take advantage of this deal from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores! Through September 15th you can use promo code AE258 to get 40% off of any one regular price item, you can also get free standard shipping on all orders of $40 or more through 8/28 with promo code WSF240. I’ve looked everywhere locally for reusable snack bags for the kids for school and haven’t been able to find ANY, so I checked around online and found that the prices vary wildly from around $6 to $12 a piece. I think that’s a little steep for around a square foot of fabric and one seam so I’ve drawn up a pattern and I’m getting ready to make my own – I’m looking for some fabric to use for those and as soon as I have a few made I’ll post the directions and the pattern here.
