Fabric Friday

Fabric Friday on Pretty Prudent

Charley Harper for Birch Fabrics Organic’s new fabric – Nurture, Mice Invasion – is so darn cute, don’t you think? I have been trying to figure out what I want to make my niece for Christmas, and I think a pair of new pajama pants or a nightgown might just be it. A new mouse stocking could be adorable too. What do you think you would make with this sweet fabric?

Enter for the chance to win one yard of Charley Harper for Birch Fabrics Organic, Nurture, Mice Invasion, and find out who won last week’s Fabric Friday after the jump…

Pretty Prudent Wishlist: For the Dudes

Pretty Prudent Wishlist FOR THE DUDES3

Wishlist for guys
While we loved hunting down all things glittery and gold for our Pretty Prudent Wishlist for the Crafter, we are shifting gears to knives, meat, whiskey, and all things man. There’s a little something for every type of dude here…

If he is starting to look a bit like Grizzly Adams, treat him to a subscription to Dollar Shave Club. He will receive a fresh razor and products each month for a clean shave.

The Endless Ammo Men’s Flight Jacket makes for a stylish everyday jacket he can easily layer. It also comes in tan and olive.

Order him the sleek Komono Watch from Urban Outfitters. We love the mix of a modern style with the rustic leather band.

The film and camera guru can appreciate the Billingham Hadley Pro Shoulder Bag. It has a great look and is highly rated for its top quality, handcrafted design.

dudes wishlist 10

You can’t go wrong with a new pair of Ray-Ban Polarized Sunglasses from Sunglass Hut.

The Alin Tweed boot from Ugg is great for keeping up comfort and style in the midst of winter weather.

Add to his tie collection with this striped Paul Smith tie. They have a large variety of prints, even polka-dot.



We read about these Jack Rudy Drink Mixers on Conde Naste Traveler, and loved that they are inspired by old traditional recipes from around the country. You can buy these drink mixers at Jack Rudy Cocktail Co.

Treat him to some delicious new additions to his pantry with a subscription to Mantry. Jaime and Carleton are obsessed and love the artisanal foods they’ve tried from their box.

dudes wishlist 9

Nike Poly Fleece Sweatpants are made especially for keeping you warm when working out during winter with their insulated Therma-FIT fabric and adjustable fit.

This drone with camera attached from Amazon is a top favorite of the Pretty Prudent men.

NHL 15 from Amazon, for the hockey fan that likes to really get into the game.

Dudes Wishlist 6

Fill a Milktape – USB Cassette Mixtape with songs that remind you of him and tuck it into his stocking.

Pick up a copy of Inherent Vice just in time for the Paul Thomas Anderson flick that comes out December 12th.

Keep his noggin warm with this classic-inspired wool fedora from Goorin Bros.

Dudes wishlist


The Cook’s Illustrated Meat Book: The Game-Changing Guide that Teaches You How to Cook Meat and Poultry with 425 Bulletproof Recipes is not only a great gift for him, but means delicious dinners for you too.

Pair your meal with a cheese plate and this four piece cheese knife set from Amazon.

Stumptown has created a Brew kit that is perfect for those who want into break into learning brewing techniques (also another gift you can benefit from).

wishlist for guys 11

Treat him to a trip to the great outdoors with a National Parks Pass, which covers the entrance for one vehicle and four passengers all year, and pays for itself by the second trip.

Between Thanksgiving dinner and holiday sweets, these Nike Running Shoes from Zappos might definitely come in handy.

The Survival Kit from Huckberry makes for another great stocking stuffer and has just about everything – carabiner knife, glow fob, nano cache, stainless s-biner, and tactical whistle.

Giveaway: The Little Spark: 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity

The Little Spark
Carrie Bloomston’s new book, The Little Spark – 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity, has completely blown us away with page after page of absolutely inspiring exercises and images to get you out of any creative funk. As much as I wish every single day I woke up with a list full of new ideas, it doesn’t always exactly happen that way, so a book like this is perfect for getting the wheels turning again.

Be inspired to tackle a new project or technique you’ve been too nervous try – sewing with jersey knit and zippers perhaps? Carrie sums up this book as a month-long creative roadmap and we agree it is exactly that. Make opening up a new page for an inspiring quote or activity part of your daily routine. The great thing is that you can flip through it month after month and still use the inspiration for new projects.

The Little Spark -
We have loved The Little Spark – 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity so much we are going to give away a copy to one of you!

Find out how to enter for the chance to win a copy of The Little Spark – 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity, and check out the sweetest video about it after the jump…
