Saddlebags So Chic and Fun...

October is just a few days away! How quickly a year passes. Halloween is almost on our doorstep. Are you ready? We have plenty of spooky fabric in stock, just right for outfitting your Princess, Gremlin or Witch. Imagination can take us so many places and the prices of our fabric will keep a little extra change in your pockets! In a few weeks we are doing an article featuring some of the truly inspired Costume's, made by you, our Mary Jo's Cloth community. So here is the deal. Make sure you used Mary Jo's fabric, snap some photos and write a brief description and if you have blogged about it, send us a link. We are looking forward to seeing your creative costume submissions. Email before October 10th to be included in the article and the slideshow. This is going to be fun. Thanks in advance for sending in these wonderful treats!

Are you a horse lover or know someone who is? Today we are featuring a very unique project sent to us by Lisa Bodenhorst. She owns a company called Ivy Run Designs which specializes in Jodpurs and the like, however she recently has been working on a line of Saddlebags. She has used really fun fabric in bright and cheery colors. These may prove to be a very popular part of her "Horse Lovers" line of products.

Hello! I have recently (within the past few months) purchased some great fabrics at Mary Jo's! I design and manufacture Saddleseat equestrian riding apparel and accessories. My most recent items are my saddle bags - I've even attached a few pictures. They are manufactured in Lebanon, Virginia and it is in the same industry where Rebekah Cloninger shows her horses! My company is Ivy Run Designs, and can be found online at I would love to know what you think.

Lisa, we think these Saddlebags are quite wonderful. Keep up the good work and know that as long as you keep shopping at Mary Jo's Cloth you will never run out of fabric that inspires your creative genius, at a price that just can't be beat.

Do you have a project to share? Please send us an email today, we love to see what you are up to.
