#MondaysWithMarcus Week 5: Dolores Smith!

Week 5 of our Mondays with Marcus series begins with neutral-toned pieced pumpkins styled as “Harvest in a Row”, a framed art piece from Dolores Smith of Timeworn Toolbox Designs! We love her minimalist approach, allowing you to go further with various embellishments if you like, including embroidery, beadwork and more. Go with her more modern color palette, or choose more traditional autumn colors.

You can download her FREE PATTERN starting today!

Be sure to continue your Likes, Follows and Shares of Marcus Fabrics across Facebook and Instagram, and all or our featured designers for the chance to win weekly fabric prizes, and a Grand Prize at the end! You’ll find all of their social links on our Mondays with Marcus page.

Next week: Lisa Norton and Lora Zmak of Material Girlfriends!

You’ll Love Our Chill-Chasing Neck Warmer!

neckwarmercomp2So, who’s down to the wire on stitching up quick holiday gifts?  Here’s one FREE PROJECT you’ll love!  It’s really a perfect “anytime” gift for him or her, so if you don’t quite finish for the holidays, don’t worry, they’ll enjoy wearing these all season long.  We suggest you cut several at once and sew assembly-line style  ; )   It also makes a great beginner sewing project for all ages.

Simply choose your favorite combination of PRIMO PLAID FLANNEL and Marcus WOOL to create this easy Neck Warmer.  Here we used Primo Plaid Flannel #J369-0113 and Wool in Oatmeal Heather #7746-0148…by the way, we love it when our president, Stephanie, volunteers to model, but I digress… Finish with hook-and-loop tape closure and a decorative button.  Then wrap and adjust it as desired.  For a softer hand and worry-free laundering later, consider felting the wool before you begin (easy felting steps are included).  Just remember to make one or two for yourself, too!
