Tailored Outfit for Boys {for Raspberry Creek Fabrics}

I do LOVE a tailored shirt and pants on a boy! When I was asked to sew up something for a fall blog using anything from the Raspberry Creek Fabric collection that didn't always get a lot of love, my eye was immediately drawn to the linen chambray collection, and the twill! When I spotted… Continue reading Tailored Outfit for Boys {for Raspberry Creek Fabrics}

Twirling in Liberty of London! {for FabricMart}

I was OH SO excited to spot Liberty of London at Fabric Mart recently, and just HAD to sew it up for my quarterly Fabricista project! Deals at Fabric Mart don't last long, so when you see something you want, you need to snap it up immediately. This can also result in a very overflowing… Continue reading Twirling in Liberty of London! {for FabricMart}

You Had Me At Sushi!

When my kids saw that the new Raspberry Creek Fabrics Fall Collection had SUSHI fabric, it was pretty much an expectation that I'd be making them something with it!

Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

Summertime by the pool is the perfect opportunity to lose yourself in an embroidery project. As long as you're not chatty like me, and find yourself talking to all the other parents instead of working on the embroidery you'd planned to do for 3 hours while your kids swam. Ahem. So, this week I hunkered… Continue reading Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

Peony Patterns Calendula in Jersey & Chiffon

A few months ago, I was checking out the $3 p/yard remnant room of one of our local fabric stores (G Street Fabrics), when I found some polkadot ITY knit and a matching polkadot chiffon! With no project in mind, but in awe that I'd stumbled upon two identical prints on two different bases in… Continue reading Peony Patterns Calendula in Jersey & Chiffon
