Frolic Fabric Blog Hop

May 23, 2017   /   byHeidi  / Categories :  Feeds

Tamara Kate has done it again and designed another exquisite fabric collection for Michael Miller Fabrics. Frolic is a hand-painted, Mexican fiesta inspired garden full of whimsical creatures in bright, vibrant colours. You can even see some of the original paintings in this post on Tamara Kate's blog! There are more possibilities than ever with this collection because, for the first time, Tamara's designs are available in knit! How exciting is that?!

My daughter loved all the available prints as much as I did, which made it a lot of fun to choose which ones to pick for our projects. The Frolicking on Knit in raspberry was our final choice, and it is so perfect! This knit is top quality and the design is so lovely! I chose to use the Skola Dress pattern simply because the style seemed to suit this print so well. With a matching headband, Anja was ready to frolic down our main street! 









For the second outfit, I just had to include the highlight of the collection: the Frolic Border. I can't resist a beautiful border print, and that's exactly what this one is. It was a perfect fit for a new pattern I've got in the works, when paired with Summer Portrait. The floral hedgehogs just blew me away when I saw them and I had to make them the centrepiece of this dress. As with other Tamara Kate fabrics I've had the pleasure of sewing with, these are a perfect weight: light enough to have a beautiful drape without the necessity of a lining. I added a pair of capri leggings with my leftover Frolicking on Knit in raspberry to complete the outfit, and we were off to park to show it off!










Thank you, Tamara Kate, for the opportunity to create these pieces with your works of art! This collection is sure to be the must-have of the summer (and beyond!). For more Frolic inspiration, follow the updates on Tamara Kate's blogFrolic is shipping to stores on June 15.

You were right! Green is The One!

You guys were totally right. This is a fun green coat. I was skeptical about the color against my skin, but I think it’s okay especially since I’ll probably be wearing a big chunky scarf much of the winter. The coat was very fast to construct since it …
