scrap fabric wreath

I love this wreath! I feel like one could use it at any time of year and it would look appropriate! It’s so colorful! It was created by Lindamade, and she has put up instructions on her blog so that we can make it too! I can’t wait to try it!

I too love the fitting room curtains and I emailed the website support group and responded that they're made special for FP in their factory in India. Maybe if enough of us ask about them they will start selling them.

It’s beginning to look a lot more like the holiday season here at the Home Office!

These awesome yarn trees appeared in Building 543 yesterday! They are a lot more tall than the photos suggest!

They are each a bit different from one another.

Santa has decided to keep one of his spare sleighs at Building 543 – an excellent sleigh-garage.

Here we have our friend Luren enjoying her lunch beside the goldfish pond.

Walking a little farther, we come to my favorite take on the yarn trees – a yarn tree dress! Wouldn’t that be fun to wear?!

knitted masks

How cool are these knitted masks by 23 year old artist Stephan Golddrajch? They were on display at the Berlin Preview art fair, and spotted by a blogger on The Moment. Read the entry to hear their view on the “woolly territory between fashion and art.”
I also think these are so appealing because the sweater quality makes me want to wear them, even though that would probably look a little scary. Maybe on the slopes. Anybody else loving the cardboard box display?


Meredith, Free People’s Allocator (she helps figure out how many of which styles go to what stores…) and music lover wants to share this Beck video with you! Here’s a little note from Meredith:
I found the video through the Creative Review blog, which I think is an amazing resource for keeping up to date on what is going on in the design and advertising world.
Beck has made a number of really fun videos for his latest album, Modern Guilt, one of which (Gamma Ray) features uber-fashionista Chloe Sevigny. Having seen this one though I think my relatives should all be expecting creepy, homemade heads of “David Beckhand”, “Short, Beck and Sides” and “Beck to the Future” as gifts this year; I’ve been inspired!


Jasmine, of our sweater design team, joins us again for another knitting lesson in this fun video! This week we learn how to do a purl stitch to go with our knit stitch, as well as how to cast off and finish our project! Check out Jasmine’s first knitting lesson to see how to cast on and do a knit stitch! Get psyched for our next installment too, when we will learn how to make baubles on our knit projects for a more festive look!

upside down dogs

Many of you may have already heard about this website, but we at the home office just discovered Upside Down Dogs today, and we love it! It’s a blog that only features pictures of dogs upside down, as you might guess. They all look so happy being upside down! It has brightened our day so much, I just had to share it with you!

We mentioned James Cooper yesterday when talking about the underwater shots from our December catalog, so we’d like to share some of his work too. Beautiful!
My favorite is the last one where it looks like some magical place between water, sky and earth. Which ones do you like??

fpgirl -Dec 03, 2008, 10:31AM
I thought the paint was probably less than environmentally friendly too. I think it's in a pool though, so at least there are no fishies living there. And it does look beautiful.

spray paint under water is not cool

I’m loving the gift tag tutorials from A Little Hut. My favorite is tutorial #2 fabric + paper. The contrast of the straight edge of the paper and the soft frayed edges of the fabric is really appealing. And I always need a reason to use up fabric scraps!
Check out all of the Little Hut tutorials (there are more gifty ones)

This quick little video makes me so happy! It’s nice to think about plants growing and living, since winter is starting to bear down on us! I love watching the little roots grow…
