Redwood from Hawthorne Threads

Redwood Fabric Poster 2800

John Muir writes that "between every two pines is a doorway to a new world," and we'd like to invite you on a majestic walk in the woods. Our next In House designed and printed fabric collection follows a mama bear and her cubs in the Pacific Northwest, where towering Redwood trees stand as tranquil sentries to another time. Their humbling heights instill a sense of awe and wonder no superlative can capture. The feeling is not unlike the one a new parent feels, making this collection a particularly wonderful choice for nurseries, children's bedrooms and play areas. With its natural hand and nurturing spirit these designs lend themselves beautifully to lovingly made bedding, quilts, apparel and accessories that both mamas and her cubs will adore. The collection features two palettes, Berry and Lake, each with Faux Patchwork prints, Project Panels and Quilt Panels. Like all our house collections, Redwood is available in Poplin, Quilting Cotton (Organic too!) and a Linen/Cotton Canvas. Let your sewing projects reach new heights with Redwood!

Redwood Fabric Pillows and Quilts

We've loved sewing a variety of projects with Redwood. The Faux Patchwork prints make for quick quilts, and the duo of project panels are great for throw pillows, mini quilts and blankets, or as the centerpiece of a quilt. My kids are presently enjoying their very first time at sleep away camp, and we got some projects done just in time. The Linen Cotton Canvas looks beautiful on a London Backpack, and the Walk in the Woods pajamas will have your little one ready to hibernate! See here for the easy Nightgown Tutorial.

Redwood Fabric Bedding Pillows

Redwood is a beautiful choice for bedding, and this pillow set is away at camp as I write! See here for the Pillowcase Tutorial and Reading Pillow Tutorial. And finally, as we were envisioning sweet nurseries while designing this collection, it was wonderful to see this crib set come together. The other side of the quilt features the Faux Patchwork Forest Slumbers in Lake, and this side shows the 44" x 48" Crib Quilt Panel in Aspen (also available in a larger 56" x 72" size, for both Aspen and Shell colorways.) We have a number of projects on our sewing table, so more inspiration to come!

The Buying a House Blouse

Hello, everyone!  It’s been quite a while since I have posted anything.

The main reason for my online disappearance is the fact that I am now a homeowner!  That process has kept me rather busy, and the move, etc., has not left much time for sewing, let alone blogging.  I was actually without internet for a couple of weeks which was rather refreshing.

Of course, I wanted to make a new outfit for the occasion, but there was not a lot of free time prior to closing.  But I was determined!  

I have been wanting to make this blouse for years.  I often pull out scraps of fabric along with the pattern, hoping that I can squeeze out an entire garment, but it never has worked for me.  Until now!

The leftovers from this skirt and this dress were tucked away in a drawer, and while the dye lots do not match, I think I managed to make it work.  The neck tie was made with the leftovers from the skirt, and the rest of the blouse (which is a slightly more pigmented and heavier weight cotton) was cut from the remains of the dress.  There were quite a few people who thought that the look was actually a dress, so I guess the difference is not terribly obvious.

These photos were taken about an hour after signing all of the paperwork (in my old neighborhood).  I was exhausted, but very happy.

I really began looking in earnest over a year ago, so it was a huge relief to finally be done.

It has been quite an adventure, and my new living space is still not “finished,” but Valentino and I are definitely settling in, and I am finally getting back into a routine – one that will definitely include many more sewing adventures!

What to Pack For a Day at the Beach With a Toddler

It’s not summer to me until we’ve been to the beach. Being by the water has always been so restful and healing for my soul. The older I get, the more of a beach gal I seem to become. I’m happy to report that Piper shares my love of the water and has loved the […]
