Fabric for Pirates :: February 2021 Reveal

Feb 15, 2021

It’s the 15th of the month, which means it’s reveal day for the Fabric for Pirates subscription recipients!  This month’s is full of love — in so many ways!  I am so excited to share it with you!

With February being the month of love, we wanted to send something out to everyone that was themed without being themed.  I mean, I’d totally dig some fabric with hearts all over it, but I’m sure not everyone is super into that.  So we settled on this marbled Alpaca Sweater Knit.  It’s like a dream.

Like a cotton candy dream.

Want to know a little more about Fabric for Pirates?  So glad you asked!  Fabric for Pirates is a simple way to have some fabric fun!

Sew!  We all love fabric, sewing and color… our goal is to deliver some amazing fabrics to you — of which you can turn around and make some amazing things for yourself, your loved ones, or your shop. Each month, you will receive 2-yards of knit fabrics (on varying bases) in the mail. Most of the time it will be a continuous 2-yard length, but we might surprise you with some coordinating prints from time to time too.

The Fabric for Pirates subscription price is $30 and includes shipping. Right now, we are keeping it to US + Canada delivery only, but we hope to open it up beyond that soon!

You’ll get a fun surprise goodie included that we think most sewist would love along with videos, tips, and inspiration on what your fabric could be! One last treat in your monthly subscription is an exclusive discount code for you to use on any P4P pattern. So if your new fabric is begging for a new pattern you’ll have a coupon code to use!  **Payments process on the 1st of every month.

I haven’t made myself a Cocoon Cardigan pretty much since we released it several years ago.  I like the “idea” of layers, but I’m super bad at wearing them.  I’ve made the Cocoon Cardi as a gift for tons of lucky recipients in my life, but always avoid it for myself.

Well times, they are a changin’. Because this one was for me!  And I love it!

My version of this pattern is pretty basic:

  • Tunic Length
  • Short Band
  • Tall Cuffed Sleeves

I didn’t make any adjustments or try and be fancy this time around.  I left the pattern as is and got cozy in it.

I’m curious, what would you have made with this fabric?
