Hot! Shop Sew Weekly

For the first time ever, a limited number of Sew Weekly readers can buy the same exact fabric I used in my weekly creation. I've been wanting to offer affordable fabric packages for quite some time as a way to earn a little bit of revenue, as well as share the deals I find out and about.  If you've read The Sew Weekly for any amount of time, you'll know that I'm all about bargains. Almost all of my weekly creations are created for less than $20. I would love the less-than-$20 price point to guide this and future "Shop Sew Weekly" offerings. 

For $18 (including domestic priority shipping and handling – BE SURE TO USE THE "SEWWEEKLY" CODE AT CHECKOUT!), you'll receive 2 yards of this 60" wide acrylic/wool blend plaid fabric.  I'm not 100% sure of the percentage of the blend, but from my burn tests it seems to match that blend profile. When unwashed, the fabric is a bit scratchy. I washed my fabric for my Sew Rejuvenated dress in cold water with a fabric softener and then dried it at a cool setting with a dryer sheet. That seemed to do the trick and made it totally wearable. 

Because I'm all about practical packaging, you'll receive the fabric wrapped in 2 yards of red piping. I'll also include a set of four buttons that coordinate with the fabric. These buttons will vary.

I'm quite excited to start expanding the Sew Weekly world to include commerce! Once all these packages are sold, send me a photo/post of your completed creation. I'll gather them together on their own page and build a little community around this common fabric.

  1. I am very excited that you’re thinking of doing more of these sewing packages! You always find the coolest stuff. I have way too much plaid in my stash so I’m resisting this deal, but I look forward to seeing the next one.

  2. I would love a little plaid bundle…could you quote for international post to Australia?

  3. That’s SO COOL! There have been many times where I have been awed by your fabric finds. I love this fabric, but am allergic to wool… otherwise…. :) Good luck on your new venture!!!!

  4. Just bought my bundle. :) I’m so looking forward to more time to sew this fall and this will likely be one of my first projects for September!

  5. off to buy some now. Know EXACTLY what I am going to sew it into….

  6. I love the fabric but find myself wondering… if you say the s&h are only for domestic US, does this mean you only ship within the US or also to “the rest of the world”, at the appropriate s&h prices for those countries?
    Couldn’t help laughing at you doing a “burn test” – for some reason, I envisioned a burning pile of fabric in the backyard… NOT a sight to behold!

  7. I’ve got the pattern for this that’s perfect. Can you ship to the UK too??
    I really must learn to do the burn test!

  8. Ooo this fits in so well with my ideas for a fall and winter wardrobe!
