Fabric Inspirations July 20 2015

People are always asking me where I get my fabric from. I spend countless hours searching for fabric from various sources including online shops, brick and mortar shops and various wholesalers. One of my favourites is Hawthorne Threads who have their own lines of digitally printed fabric. Small Potatoes was recently featured in their project round-up of their "Coyote" line of fabric, which I used for my Dreamcatcher products. Take a look at their blog post to see all the other cool things people are doing with this gorgeous fabric. http://www.hawthornethreadsblog.com/2015/07/project-roundup-coyote-fabric.html

Welcome to the New Home of Small Potatoes! April 30 2014

It was a long, cold winter in Winnipeg. A record-breaking cold winter, in fact. Did I mention cold?

Unfortunately, I'm not one to get out and embrace the cold and look for ways to layer up and engage with the snow. I'm more of a hunker-down under 20 cozy blankies with a hot cuppa and a good movie. 

All those indoor days have given me the opportunity to think about freshening up the website for spring. Small Potatoes now has a brand-spanking new system that will be much easier to navigate, easier to view products and an incredible shopping cart system that is so easy to use that you can shop while bouncing a newborn to sleep on your lap. :)

I'm adding new photos of products all the time so please bear with me as I make updates.

Hope you like it! I look forward to your feedback.


Spring is in the Air! April 11 2014

Spring is springing up everywhere around us and with the changing of the season Small Potatoes is busy working behind the scenes on a new website. Launching soon, the new site will have new fabrics (owls, whales, comics, kitties, Japanese dolls, pirates, florals and did I mention owls?), new photos, new promotions and an amazing new easy-to-use shopping cart system. Here's a sneak peek of a few of the new fabrics I'm excited to share with you soon. Thanks for your patience while I finish up tweaking the last bits of the new site - it will be worth the wait, I promise!
