Coffee as Science

Coffee. How many of us can’t get our day started without a cup of coffee? It seems like everyone has a saying or joke about it. Today, I wanted to share this very clever fabric expressing a love for coffee. It’s called Coffee as Science by Virginia Odien.

Coffee as Science

This design is so creative! Coffee is being brewed in a chemistry lab setting, creating happiness in a mug. Coffee beans, a coffee pot, spoons of sugar, pitchers of milk and water are placed together with flasks, tubes, a Bunsen burner and the chemical structure of caffeine. It’s a fun scene where one mug filled with water is sad, and the other mug, filled with coffee, is happy. I love the little hearts inside the structure of caffeine!

This fabric, and all of Virginia’s amazing designs, can be found at her shop on Spoonflower, here.

Happy National Chemistry Week!

Celebrating National Chemistry Week with Science Fair 2 fabric by Robert Kaufman.

Science Fair 2 Laboratory

National Chemistry Week is October 21 to October 27, 2018.

I am so excited to share this amazing new science fabric with you! The series is called Science Fair 2 by Robert Kaufman. The official name for this pattern is SRK-17929-205 MULTI, but I like to call it Chemistry Lab.

This multi-colored fabric contains scenes from a chemistry lab on a gray background. A flame heats a beaker on a ring stand, while liquids in flasks are distilled into other beakers. Single beakers, flasks and small tubes are scattered throughout the pattern. Colors include red, orange, yellow, lime green and sky blue.

I hope you enjoy this fabric and have fun during National Chemistry Week!

Fabric Name: Geek Chic Large Allover Fabric by Studio e

Material: 100% cotton fabric

Background color: Navy Blue

Other colors: Yellow, orange, sky blue, medium blue, lime green, red, gray.

Theme: Science

Description:

Laboratory glassware, chemical formulas and science icons outlined in white, on a navy blue background.

The chemical formulas and elements include: Cu, H₂O, H₂CO, H₂SO₄, N₂, NH₂, CO₂. Some chemical structures and reactions are: Cu + ½ O₂ →CuO, water, ethylene, CH₃-CH-C₃H₇, and ethane. The word CHEMISTRY is written in white letters. The fabric also has atomic rings, a beaker with a green liquid, a water bottle with blue liquid, and a gray ring stand holding a round bottom flask with bubbling red liquid. A blue burner is heating that flask with 3 yellow flames. There is an Erlenmeyer flask with a bubbling blue liquid, and a graduated cylinder with a yellow and orange liquid. Four bubbling test tubes are scattered throughout the pattern with yellow, orange, green or blue liquid. A fifth tube has green liquid that is not bubbling. Finally, there are two more beakers, one large and one small, containing a green liquid. They are connected by a curly blue tube dripping liquid into the smaller beaker.

This fabric is so colorful and cheerful! It makes me happy 🙂 Science is fun!

 

Happy Pi Day!

Fun Ways to Use Science Bags

IMG_3435 - Edited

You might be asking yourself, what can I use science bags for? Lots of things! Throw a mad science party and give them away as a party favor. The larger bags are big enough to hold a child’s paperback book- perfect for toting to the library! And what a clever way to wrap a present for your favorite science teacher on teacher appreciation day! I’ve had scientist friends use them to hold prizes at their weekly lab meetings. They like to put gift cards and candy inside. One scientist friend uses the bags to cheer up her cubicle 🙂

I love to hear all of the creative ways the science bags are used! Leave a comment below and let me know how you are using them.

 

Science is Fun!

Did you know that I used to work as a scientist before I became a mom? I haven’t worked in the lab for quite a while, but I still love science. I also love getting kids excited about learning science. Science is fun!

Now I’m combining science and sewing by making bags with science fabric. Let me know in the comments if you love science too!
