KCW: scavenger hunt!

scavenger hunt: chateau sew & sew

I am very excited to introduce you to a lovely fabric shop called Chateau Sew & Sew. Why the fancy French name? Chateau Sew & Sew is located in historic New Orleans. They have a gorgeous storefront in the Lower Garden District in a building that dates back to the 1800s. And they sell heaps of gorgeous fabric! 

I hope you are enjoying the scavenger hunts! Today’s hunt will take you on a tour of Chateau Sew & Sew’s online shop–and a few other place they hang out on the internet too.

To show off some of the fabric Chateau Sew & Sew sells, I’ve paired prints with a few fantastic masks. When I think of this season’s theme, DISGUISE, the first thing I think of is masks. All you need to transform yourself into a cat (or bat or bunny or even a rainbow) is a mask! As long as you are looking out the eyes of a fluffy bunny, there is no need for an entire fluffy bunny suit. Why not make some fantastic pjs out of the Cotton + Steel ghost bunny print? Or for your kitty-obssessed kid, add some details in a striking cat print: a pocket or two, maybe a collar. A little bit of a good print goes a long way!

1. printable rainbow mask 2. rainbow 3. umbrellas (laminated) 4. rain

I could not resist this little boy in a rainbow mask. How excited is he?! Years ago my daughter dressed up as a rainbow for Halloween (back when her favorite color was rainbow!). You don’t have to go that far, but all of these prints would be great for the rainbow-obessesed. And how fantastic would a raincoat be lined in one of these prints. Or better yet, make the raincoat with the umbrella print on the outside–the umbrella fabric is laminated!– and rainbows on the inside. All day long they will feel like a bright rainbow, whether they are wearing that goofy mask or not:)

Have a look around the Chateau Sew & Sew shop and see what fabrics you can find. Will you hide a little fabric detail or go all out with a rainbow outfit?!

1. shark 2. alligator 3. unicorn 

Chateau Sew & Sew sells more than fabric. They have a lovely gifts section too. Hooded bath towels are every kid’s favorite. They work for summer at the pool and all the time after their bath–and for dress up time too! I had never seen a unicorn one. Maybe it’s time I get one for myself:)
