Saturday Organic Fabric by Monaluna

Our new Saturday collection has arrived! The fresh fabrics finally landed at our warehouse on Monday, and we’re busily shipping them out to shops and designers who have been patiently waiting while they made their slllooooowwww progress through customs. I’m so excited to get to work making with these fabrics! It’s a funky little group of designs that all evoke for us a relaxed, creative weekend vibe.

Saturday Organic Fabric Patchwork

These designs have all been printed on our premium organic poplin, which is our most versatile substrate. It’s wonderful for quilting, adding a smoother, softer hand than traditional quilting cotton, and it also works beautifully for many apparel projects, pillows, tote bags and all kinds of other sewing projects. As always, the fabric is 100% GOTS-certified organic, which means that the farming and production processes meet very strict environmental and social standards. If you’d like to read more about the certification details, you can view the guidelines here.

We had a chance to work on some patchwork projects like the quilt and pillow above, and this Market Bag (by Noodlehead) using the small amount of sample fabric that we had before the shipment arrived, but now I’m ready to get to work on some more projects. I started a cute wrap skirt using the Cruise print (bicycles!) and the mustard Shards print, and I’m going to try a Sutton Blouse (by True Bias) with the Terrariums. What would you guys make from these prints? If you’d like to see more, you can hop over to our website to view the full collection, or place your order!

The weather turned cool here this week just in time for back-to-school. I sent Anabelle off to her first day of 3rd grade yesterday, and now I have a little time to start thinking about fall sewing. One of the the most popular projects we’ve done here in the studio is our Patchwork Infinity Scarf, and Mindy stitched one up in our Journey Lawns last week. The fabric is delicate and lightweight, making it the perfect layer to add a bit of warmth and pattern to early fall outfits. You can get the free pattern for the project here ( just print or save as a pdf), and you can buy a 1/3 yard bundle of the Journey Organic Cotton Lawns (enough to make 2 scarves!) on the website here.

If you end up with some fabric left over, we have another idea for you: you can make this gorgeous patchwork pillow, based on May Chappell’s All Strung Up quilt pattern. Although it can be made with poplin or any quilting cotton, it’s especially nice in lawn, which makes it a bit softer and lighter.
