Back to School — Pellon® & Birch Fabrics


We’re super excited about today’s post as it marks a fabulous new relationship with Birch Fabrics. We love their collections and are especially taken with Fort Firefly by Teagan White. The colors are perfect for the coming Fall season and the illustrations hint at fairytales and wonder. We’ve got a fun project coming for you later this week with a few of these fabulous prints, but were also thrilled to collaborate with Birch on another project by one of their designers, Christina McKinney.


Not only are these little nested fabric bins adorable, they are incredibly functional. They would be perfect to spruce up your office, for extra storage in the baby’s room, for special events and more. Christina’s tutorial is super easy to follow and uses a simple combo of Fort Firefly fabrics and Pellon® 809 Décor-Bond®.

    Awesome tutorial. Thank you! After searching for about 3 months off and on I finally found some Pellon 809 Décor Bond last night. Big plus too is that it was half price. Bad thing? I only bought 2 yds which was more than what I had been searching for the 809 to make and now I need to go back and buy more and the sale is over now. ugh. Darn. I KNEW I should have bought more. I don’t know the best way to store it however because I am assuming it should not be folded. I’m not very well versed in using any of these types of products unfortunately.
