Lovely store :)
I wanted to ask all of you fp workers/girls to participate in my big project of 2008, a book full of handwritten love stories about how people fell in love with something – a person place event idea or even food! I’d absolutly love to see what you creative girls can send and contribute to my project. I look forward to hearing from you! :) The information can be found on my blog, or at this link

it looks great! i went in there a few weeks ago and one of our old anthro guards was working the door so it felt like family.
i really like those floral, sequined wall-hangings.

Hi FP Girl, i was wondering where you guys got the sequin sheets to make the floral sequin boards you hung on the walls at your New York City store? I love them and really want a new project to do, but i cant seem to find the sequin sheets your team used!! THANKS!

Hey heart FP. I’m going to see if the display team can give you some advice. I know that one of our designers handmade the proto and then they had the rest made in India. I’ll get back to you soon.

So here is the advice from our display team regarding the sequined canvases. For our proto, our designer actually hand sewed each sequin on by hand, and then left a space for the screen printed flower applique. She does not recommend doing that yourself! Luren suggests going to a fabric store and buying a small amount of sequined fabric, maybe the stretchy variety. This could be a little expensive, so another great alternative would be to find some sequined wonder of a dress at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. That way you would be recycling material and not spending much $$. The fabric can them be fixed onto a frame of canvas stretchers and decorated as you like.
Hope that helps! If you end up making the project, you should send me the photos and I’ll post them on the blog! Just leave your email address in a comment and I will get in touch. happy crafting!
