Fun with our new Brave fabrics!

Is it possible to have too much fun at work? We've been dressing us some wooden dolls in our new Brave fabrics for our next photo shoot and it might be tough to give these over to my 2 year old niece. See more project peeks over on Instagram in the coming days!

Pond Life Faux Patchwork Quilt, finished at 56" x 72"

We're very pleased to introduce you to Thumbelina, our newest In House designed and printed fabric collection. This storied yet sophisticated group captures the adventures of a girl who proves that courage lies in us all, no matter how small. Natural pinks and blues accented with bright spring greens paint a lush backdrop, with hints of watercolor bringing the pond scenes to life.

A fittingly bite sized collection, Thumbelina consists of just 13 prints plus a Faux Patchwork design, as well as a Project Panel. For more coordinates, try our Thatched, Buffalo Plaid, Skipping Stones, and Terrarium basics. We also offer FQ Bundles.

Baby Legging Tutorial from Gina Michele

April Rhodes plays homage to her Heritage with these rich designs printed on Knit and Rayon. April "drew inspiration from two of the most influential storytellers in my life, my father and my grandmother. It is 6 prints in knit and rayon and I'm incredibly honored to showcase a small glimpse of my family's history in this wearable fabric collection." We're very excited to play with these beautiful fabrics, and love how nicely they will coordinate with the upcoming Arizona After line!

Slue Foot Sue’s Golden Horseshoe

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Disneybound event put together by Dole Whip Dame. The theme? Disneyland itself!

Second take on V1525: A red Rebecca Vallance pant suit!

Keep reading the sewing review (or hop over here to see more photos of me wearing this suit).
PT Sumário: Decidi fazer outro conjunto top e calça Rebecca Vallance para o verão (podem ver a primeira versão aqui) e desta vez optei por um tecido mais parecido com o original, tanto na cor como no cair.
