Happy Thursday All!
That’s right! The next round of Four Seasons™ has been designed, colored and sent out to the mills this week. What’s even better news, this time around, you can expect, 3 brand new Four Seasons™ groups, AND 2 new regular David Textiles groups! Those of you who shop with us know this is exciting, as we haven’t done a new regular David Textiles line in about a year, and we are so excited to give you not one, but two new lines.
What did we design this time? You’ll just have to stay tuned to our blog every week to find out . We promise we’ll give you a sneak peek soon, but we are 100% sure you are going to love it!
In other news, we also finalized all of the designs for our 2015 fleece catalog this week (yes we had a very productive and busy week here at DT!)
We know you want more on this exciting 411, but don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated on anything and everything about our Fleece Catalog, Four Seasons & David Textiles lines here at our blog and on our Facebook® .
∞ And last but not least, don’t forget to ‘like’ us & visit us here every week for your weekly dose of all things DT!
What do you think is in store for you with our new groups? Sound off in the comments!
Guess what’s just come in fresh off the presses, or shall I say, fresh from the printery? In any case, your two most favorite collections are here in our warehouse (ahead of schedule!) and we are preparing to ship out your orders! These two groups are our most popular and fabric is extremely limited, so if you have not yet put in your orders, we suggest getting them in soon. Call our sales team and get your fix today! 800.548.1818 | 323.728.3231 |firstname.lastname@example.org | www.davidtextilesinc.com
I must say, these fabrics came out even better than our brochures. They really do the artwork some beautiful justice! We made a DIY shoulder bag tut on Monday out of City Style. Missed it? Access it by clicking here! It would look great with French Couture also!
Post Script: Also in, most of Dreamland Flannel basics, with Harmony 2 and Birds & Feathers coming very, very soon!
Hello & happy Monday everyone! We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving & weekend. Not only is Thanksgiving a time for being grateful for the things we have and spending time with our loving family indulging in some delicious turkey …with a side of mashed potatoes…and cranberry sauce, alright and maybe a double helping of green bean casserole with a side of pumpkin pie!; it’s also the unofficial-yet-official kick-off for some serious Christmas shopping! Did you start yet?
However, many of us like ourselves here at David Textiles, really love the value and heart that a made at home gift can offer, so we’ve come up with this simple do-it-yourself shoulder bag for all of you! It’s easy, stylish, affordable, and will only take about an hour and thirty minutes of your time. How great is that?
Hint: Make this bag even more special by embroidering the recipient’s initials on an added pocket, or by even adding some of their favorite things inside of the bag for an extra surprise!
This bag is deep enough to fit your make-up bag, a book, your keys and wallet. If you want a deeper bag, simply add a few inches to the sides that measure 10” and connect to the bottom measurement of 17”.
What you’ll need:
1 yard of two fabrics of your choice- One for the actual bag, and one for the inner lining
Recommended fabrics: City Style in black by David Textiles (Bag) and Toile in Rose by David Textiles (Lining)
A snap or Velcro (you pick the size, recommended: 2″)
Coordinating Thread, recommended: Black
Basic Sewing Supplies (Sewing Machine, scissors, pins)
- Print out this PDF with the pattern: DIY SHOULDER BAG PATTERN-DT. Cut & tape it together (a bit tricky), or simply follow the measurement in the below picture and draw your own pattern on tracing paper, parchment paper, etc.
- Once you have your pattern, cut two out of the bag fabric, and two out of the lining fabric.
- Starting with your bag pieces, place them right sides together and sew the 10” edges with a ¼” seam allowance.
- Open out the piece you’ve just sewn so the seams are in the front and back of the bag, centered. Sew along the bottom seam. Repeat steps 3 & 4 for the lining, but leave a 2” unsewn portion for the bottom seam so you can turn it right-side out later.
- Sew the lining and outer pieces together, placing one inside of the other & pinning them right sides together. Be sure to match your center seams. Sew along the straps and curved opening of the bag.
- With your scissors, clip along the curved edges almost to the seam. This will help your bag “sit” nicely.
- Turn the bag right side out by pulling it through the gap you left in the lining in step 4 & iron the bag neatly around all the seams. Be sure to trim the tops of the straps so they are nice and even.
- Make an “M” with the straps, making sure both straps are edge to edge. Encase the edges by folding again twice. Place under the machine and sew using a ¼” seam allowance with your double-stitch function & stitch length at ‘1’.
- Finish your bag off by sewing a ¼” top stitch all around the edges of the bag, if you wish.
- Sew your Velcro or snaps to both sides of the lining about one inch from the top edges of the bag at the center part of the curve & viola, all done! Who will you make and gift this super simple bag to? Questions? Leave them in the comments!
A lot of you have been recently asking when we will get the newest issue of our yearly fleece catalog out for 2015 and what types of fabulous new prints you may be able to find inside. Fret not, for the art for all the designs in the 2015 fleece catalog will be sent out for production by the end of this year! What does this mean to you? You can expect the fleece catalog to be in your hands by March or early April. What can you expect to find in terms of designs you may ask? For starters, new Angry BirdsTM, new BatmanTM & SupermanTM, new Monster HighTM, new wildlife, breast cancer awareness, sports, skins & tween art. In a sense, a lot of new updates with some timeless favorites.
We can’t wait for you to see it and to get the ball rolling. We’ll be sure to keep you updated. For now, have some fun pawing through our 2014 fleece catalog by clicking here.
The weather’s getting colder, the leaves are changing color, and the days are getting shorter. You all know what that means; it’s Quilt Market season! Here’s a quick recap about our time in Houston this October, enjoy!
Thursday/Friday: Booth set-up
We had tons of fun this year decorating our booth (and eating some of the chocolate meant for our customers and visiting the Starbucks conveniently located upstairs!) We decided to keep it clean, classy & modern this time around. We kept it simple yet elegant with our props, covering hat boxes and jewelry boxes, & sewing bunches of pillows to showcase the fabric the best possible way.
Saturday/Sunday/Monday- Show Time!
Quilt Market had us with a steady stream of customers & admirers purchasing and viewing our latest Four Seasons collections: City Style, French Couture, City Style, Spring Garden Fleur & Exotic Wild Life, as well as our newest basics lines Harmony 2 & Dreamland (read more about them here!) Harmony 2 is a 75-pattern program of blenders made in every imaginable color for your needs while Dreamland is our new prints program just for baby (did we mention Dreamland has coordinating solids too? Win!)
The stars of the show
French Couture & City Style were among the two most anticipated and well received collections, followed closely by Spring Garden Fleur. The compliments and “ooh’s & ahh’s!” poured in all weekend long, and really, who are we to disagree with our customers.
Until next time, Quilt Market. Next stop, Minneapolis!
We have some fresh new collections in production just waiting to be turned into your next favorite project!
Introducing City Style, a chic, “pumped” up group that’s sure to please the most fashionable fashionista & city girl; French Couture, a black and tea-stained colored group that’s the perfect fabric for wedding crafts or any bridal DIY; Spring Garden Fleur, our romantic collection fortified with roses, flowers & beautiful butterflies; Birds & Feathers, a group focusing on ornithology, truly an ideal group for any nature lover; and finally, Exotic Wildlife. David Textiles is known for our amazing animal prints and this round of animal patterns doesn’t disappoint. Get lost in the powerful, serene, nature-feel that this group represents.
Also in store for us is our newly updated 75-print cotton blenders program, Harmony 2 exclusively for quilt shops, and our brand new 68-print flannel nursery program with coordinating solids, Dreamland! The best news? All of these groups are available now for pre-order! You can do so by clicking here.

We are happy to introduce our New Collection by ClaireBella. This collection is available in Cotton and Flannel. Visit our Web Site @ www.davidtextilesinc.com to view the products.
David Textiles is making its debut at the ABC Kids Expo on October 10-13 in Las Vegas. We will be promoting our new line of consumer goods. It’s a natural progression from being a textile manufacturer to creating the finished product. We have created a line of baby receiving blankets, security blankets and juvenile throws. Taking advantage of the many licenses that we carry and our capacity to service major chain and department stores, we have positioned ourselves as the “Go To” company for those who are looking for the latest trends at affordable prices.
Does your toddler son want a Hotwheels or Superman throw? Or maybe he’s just seen the upcoming Green Lantern movie. Buying him a throw to cuddle up in on a cold winter morning is perfect. Or maybe the little girl in your life loves kittens or Harry Potter? We’ve got her covered too with our Rachael Hale and Warner Brothers licenses.
The trendiest of celebrity moms often turn to Claire Bella for their nursery needs. We have coordinated her designs in four-packs of Receiving blankets with matching Security blankets. If you want something more cutting edge, our Artists of Kolea feature Skull & Bones and Camoflage in soft pink and blue. If something more fun appeals to you rather than the typical pastels for your baby boy, picture him wrapped in a DC Comic Super Friends or Hot Wheels receiving blanket.
Quality, trend forward products at reasonable prices is what David Textiles stand for. Come and see us at the ABC Kids Expo. We will be at booth 4231.
