Sharon Holland’s Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour…

Are you ready for the Holidays? Ok, admit it, you have already been listening to Christmas music!! My kids (I guess I can’t blame the kids) put it on the day after Halloween.

Buying Christmas gifts is one of my favorite and most stressful things to do this time of year. I am always striving to buy the right gift for each person but I always feel like I never hit the mark. Some of my favorite gifts our family has given to our friends was our homemade presents. This is year I told myself more homemade then store bought! Well I am off to a great start. This first gift is for my Niece, she is almost 2 and I think will love this little bunny!

This adorable bunny is made with Sharon Holland’s Bountiful fabrics in…

Perennial Renewal- Sweet Floral Print

and

Plain Weave Thatch- The perfect accent print

anewEH4A9554

The Perennial Renewal print maybe my most favorite print from all of Sharon’s Collections. That is saying a lot since I love so many! It sweet, fresh and delicate!

Pattern comes from:

Violette Field Threads- Blushing Bunny

Hello all,

Today is my stop on the Sweet Prairie Blog Tour. This sweet and adorable fabric collection is designed by the very talented, Sedef Imer with Riley Blake. 

These prints are bright, cheerful and floral. Full of shades of mint, yellow, gray, pink and red.  The prints are delicate and I could totally see this in baby dolls and in a babies nursery!

For my photoshoot we set out on a Saturday morning to our local Farmers Market. Life style photo shoots are becoming my favorite. I also felt this was a perfect setting to complement the red and yellow floral print.

Fabric used:

Blue Shirt Blog Tour-Blue Carolina

Blue Shirt Blog Tour-Blue Carolina

Hey all, 

Happy Thursday! I am over the moon with what I am sharing today! Christopher, The Tattooed Quilter, has been one of my favorite Quilters for years. I have been stalking , I mean following, him for quite some time on IG and was finally lucky enough to meet him in person at Spring Quilt Market. So why was he there? Well, he was introducing is FIRST fabric collection with Riley Blake called Blue Carolina! Me? Well, to drool over fabric of course! Silly!!

aanewEH4A4265

I am pretty sold on the fact this fabric line was made for my daughter! lol  Dogs are her favorite thing in the world! I am pretty sure she would own every dog in the world if we let her. Also Blue is such an amazing color on her, it really makes her blue eyes pop!! 

aanewEH4A4336-2

While visiting Christopher’s booth at Quilt Market I fell head over heels in love with a top he had modeling his new fabric. I really really really wanted to draft a top similar for the tour but totally ran out of time since I am busy getting ready for new Fall and Winter patterns. Booo! Kidding! It is exciting to be drafting for the upcoming season, but it also limits my time for the fun extras. So I found a similar Simplicity pattern that I used and made some modifications to fit my daughter. 

aanewEH4A4313

One such modification was I left the edge of the flounce raw. I zig zagged the raw edge which helps make for a distressed look. You could also add fray check if you want to make sure it does not continue to fray even more. 

aanewEH4A4277

Can you see what is on the flounce fabric? Cut, Sew, Repeat 

aanewEH4A4337

I typically take photos in a park or under a tree but Christopher asked us to take photos in an Urban setting. So when I first saw that photo above I was like OMG, there is a person and cars in my photo. NOOOOO! But honestly I love it now. It maybe my new favorite landscape for photos.  Funny thing is the women’s dress totally works to my favor. HA!!!

Wonderful Things Blog Tour- Going Home To Roost

Wonderful Things Blog Tour- Going Home To Roost

WOT-blog-tour

 

The gentle whispers of joy fill our minds as positive affirmations bring inspiration and encouragement. Wonderful things inspires to delight with happy hues and delicate prints to uplift your spirits.

Hello All,

Welcome to the Wonderful Things Blog tour. Bonnie from Going Home to Roost created the Wonderful Things with the same beauty that she brings to all of her collections with Art Gallery Fabric. This collection has two color ways, Honest Whispers and Honeyed Wonders.

Honest Whispers is soft and subtle pastels while Honeyed Wonders is Bold and Bright.

aanewEH4A3520

My Grandmother is my Wonderful Thing (my favorite person). She is the Matriarch of our family and my last Grandparent alive. She is 92 years and only stopped working 2 years ago! She is delicate yet strong, strong minded yet compassionate, independent yet family focused. I would be lucky if I was half as amazing as she is. She is well know in our family for her amazing food. One of my favorite dished she makes is Menudo. I know, not everyone has a stomach for that dish. LOL

 A couple of weeks ago she fell and cracked her femur.  Wait let me back up, She fell on a Friday did not tell anyone until the next day, because she did not want to disturb them. She only took some pain medicine and laid down. However the next day she could not walk. That is so her! Too strong for her own good! She is currently at a rehab facility and the Docs, Nurses and Physical Therapist are all blown away by her progress and determination to get back on her feet. They wanted to send her home last week because she is a rock star and already doing very well but the Doc requested one more X-ray and discovered, what they had previously thought was a cracked femur was actually a full break in the femur head. She is strong and determined to get back home and I am sure she will by this week.  I have always looked up to my Grandmother but more and more as I have gotten older I have prayed to be just like her. She raised 5 children, worked full time and cared for my Grandfather during his medical battles. She is also the oldest of 10 siblings which she also helped to raise. She is intertwined in every holiday tradition I have known since I was born and also in my kids lives. I could not be more proud of my family as well. I have watched them all rally around her. Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles have flown in for out of town to gather around her and support her healing.  Truly blessed to be apart of this wonderful family. Such a Wonderful Thing!

I love the Words to Live by.  I have been looking forward to making a top for my daughter to wear. I am secretly hoping she looks down at her shirt and is reminded to be true to herself!  Anything that can help a Mom out, I will take it!! Thanks Bonnie!

Cricut Blog Tour and Giveaway

Cricut Blog Tour and Giveaway

Blog post in partnership with Cricut.

Welcome,

I have a HUGE blog post for you AND A HUGE GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!! Today I am joining several seamstresses to present to you the Cricut Explore Air 2.  This is my first experinece with Cricut or a machine like this so I pretty much jumped when given the chance at playing with the Criut Explore Air 2. I think the hardest part of this machine was figuring out what to do! There are so many options that you can easily get lost in the Design Space.

aanewEH4A8944aanewEH4A8908Speaking of Design Space I highly suggest setting up your account as soon as you get your machine. You will really want to start designing now! I had a very hard time narrowing down my project for today’s blog. I finally decided on making my daughter a t-shirt design for her 13th birthday along with a free hand appliqué  on a skirt.

Here is what I did…

  1. Start designing!!! I spent hours on the Design Space Website playing with ides. Choosing vinyl colors for the project and other details like font style, size, placement, etc. Promise this was the hardest part! LOL!! So many amazing designs! aanewEH4A1543
  2. Once you finalize your design on design space it’s time to set up the machine. It is Super easy!!  After turning it on, plug it into your computer or use the bluetooth on your cell  phone if you are designing off the Cricut app. Place the Vinyl on a mat with shiny side down (which is also the clear liner). If your design is small cut down the vinyl before placing on the mat.aanewEH4A1536aanewEH4A0641
  3. Open the Air 2 and slide the mat in. Move the smart set dial to IRON -ON or right between IRON-ON AND CARDSTOCK if you are using iron-on glitter.  Then press GO on the Design Space and watch the magic happen!!! ***Make sure you click mirror image BEFORE cutting.
  4. Once it is done, slide it out of the machine and grab your wedding tool.  The wedding tool will help take out the excess vinyl from the backing. Take off any excess iron-on around the design by peeling it from the clear lining. The is a great time to get the kids involved!!! aanewEH4A0623aanewEH4A0681aanewEH4A0687
  5. I knew I wanted to free hand the collage on the skirt so I cut each design separate. Don’t trim the clear liner too close as you will need some left to be able to grab and peel off after its ironed on??? If you don’t want to free hand a pattern you can weld (merge) design so that they are printed all together on the Design Center. This video can help.aanewEH4A0707aanewEH4A0715
  6. I then laid my designs for the skirt on the fabric with clear liner side up and played with how I wanted them to be grouped. I layered a few pieces on top of each other so that the floral collage looked like a continues flow. While I was playing around with placement I ended up changing my mind on the color of the flowers. But this was an easy fix. Just grabbed the right color of vinyl and cut the flowers out again.  Once I was happy with the placement I removed any pieces that sat on top of the first layer. Tip: If you’re not using the app and your working away from your computer screen, take a cell phone pic for reference so you remember how it should look. aanewEH4A0728aanewEH4A0766
  7. Use a hot iron on Cotton/Linen and a press cloth, and iron the designs to the fabric.  Very important to use a press cloth and NO steam. Press each area down for 20-30 seconds. Repeat with reverse side of your fabric. Once it has cooled check a corner to see if all is secure. If it is then you are golden but if it is not press again for 15-20 more seconds.  aanewEH4A0777aanewEH4A0781aanewEH4A0782
  8.  For my project I was not done yet. I still had a few pieces that needed to be layered on top of the first layer. I repeated step 8 with the second layer. aanewEH4A0787
  9. Boom done!!!

For the my T-shirt design I did used the same technique.

Tips:

  1. What helped me the most when deciding where to place the wording is I had my daughter put the tank top on and I pinned the iron-on in place.  This way I could step back and look before committing with the iron.aanewEH4A0791
  2. Cut your project out in cardstock before using up your precious iron-on.  I used cardstock first and that helped me to decide on what size I wanted to use on the tank top.
  3. Check out more Iron-on projects to help you narrow down your project! See more HERE.
  4. Watch this video!
  5. Don’t be scared! Have funnnn!!!

Here is my final design all together…

I hope you all have had a fantastic week so far! So this is one exciting blog tour. If you have not been following, get caught up now on  Dana’s Blog or Instagram! Ok, did you get caught up? Pretty amazing right?!!! Now, I get to share my project…

Dana’s second collection with Art Gallery Fabrics, it just as fun, vibrant and summery as her  first, Boardwalk Delight. I mean Piñata Confetti is begging to be used in party decorations! I actually used Mexican Dress Midnight and Piñata Confetti together for AGF lookbook for Fiesta Fun.

ANEWEH4A8557

I have been waiting to use Citrus Sunrise since Dana made this ADORABLE outfit for her daughter. I mean isn’t it the most ridiculously cute outfit you have ever seen??!!!  I love the freshness of the fabric print. Is that a thing? Well it is in my head! lol 

ANEWEH4A8571

Cassie and I meet up at a local Nursery for a afternoon of pics, berry pie and homemade lemonade. Oh and BBQ dinner! When Cassie and I did our first photoshoot for the Fiesta Fun lookbook  we traveled to San Diego and took pictures at the Spanish Village. This Nursery brought a totally different backdrop to the photos.

Check out her blog for all the low down on the beautiful bags she stitched up. I feel pretty lucky to be able to team up with her. She is a talented seamstress and a sweet friend (that just happens to own a fabric shop in town)!!

AANEWEH4A5759

So let’s chat really quickly on how I decided what project I would make for the Blog Tour. It all started with Sharon and Maureen’s Sewcial Bee Sample, they inspired me to make my first Quilt Block. Then I got a big head (blahahahaha) and thought hmmm, let take that Quilt Block and make a dress with it.

AAANEWEH4A6431

I choose their Flying Geese Block.  I will say though, next time I would place the flying geese straight down the middle of the bodice instead of down the sides like it is now.  I am a bit obsessed with the back and I do feel this is a very special dress. True labor of love!!!

Katarina Roccella- Blithe Blog Tour

aneweh4a9419How exciting and amazing have all of these creations been so far on the Blithe Blog Tour, right??!!! I am impressed and inspired by each one. One of these days I am going to let go of my fear of quilting and MAKE A QUILT! I don’t know how many times I hear from Quilters how scared they are to sew an article of clothing. I guess we all have our vices??
Anyways, today is mine and my sewing bestie Cassie’s day to share our creations for the Blithe Blog Tour!

Katarina has done it again (and again and again and again with Art Gallery Fabric)! She has such a passion and an eye for detail it is hard not to fall in love with each collection she releases. To me, Blithe encompass Natures’ beauty in Fall and Winter time. I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve for your next collection!!

For the Blog Tour Cassie and I happen to be up in Big Bear at the same time so we decided what better place to do a photoshoot. Don’t worry kids, you can brave 30 degree weather for your Mothers crazy ideas. LOL
I prepped my daughter by showing her photos of Joyfolie models in the snow. I think it actually helped. Hehehehe #momfail

For the dress I used the Magnolia Dress from Little Lizard King. I used the knit in Bird Songs Sun.

Runway Skirt Blog Tour-Skirt Fixation

Runway Skirt Blog Tour-Skirt Fixation

Hello Friday,

It is a super busy time of year so thank you for taking a moment to stop by!

Today is my day to share with you the Runway Skirt Pattern that Skirt Fixation just released!

Image Map

Oh and guess what?!!?? It is on SALE from now until the 10th!  And On top of an already great sale, you can sign up for a fab giveaway for 1 Runway Skirt Pattern and a $25 Urban Sew gift card.  See the Rafflecoptor link at end of the post.

aneweh4a6091-copy

The Runway Skirt features 3 skirt lengths; knee, midi and maxi. It really is such a comfortable skirt, thanks to the knit.  Also very stylish, thanks to the elegant godets. I had a goal during my “break” to make a few items for myself.  So far I have found that I suck at goals and I don’t know how to “take a break”!  I am really really really  grateful Aubrey asked me to join her blog tour so I could at least make one item for myself before the end of the year! LOL

aneweh4a6133

The pattern also comes in a large size range, 00-24, and I am wearing a size 2.  Sadly, I am not blessed with curves but I love the shape of the skirt and the godets which add flare and shape to my body. Wahoo!!! See more details on the pattern HERE.

aneweh4a6104

I used Art Gallery Fabric and Katarina Roccella Lavish Knit for the main body of the skirt and Art Gallery Denim for the godets. The pattern does call for a lighter weight fabric for the godet but I really wanted to add the denim so don’t tell on me ok! Hahahaha!

aneweh4a6087-copy

Aubrey did a wonderful job on the Runway Skirt tutorial and I can’t believe it is her first pattern! It is very well written and illustrated and so easy to follow. I would say if you are a confident beginner seamstress you can tackle this pattern!

Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour

Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour

Happy Friday and welcome to my stop on Pat Bravo’s Heartland Blog Tour. I am excited to share with you how I got to interpret Pat’s new collection. Heartland released in September and this will be her ? collection for Art Gallery Fabric.

heartland-tour-blog-banner

Yesterday , Mariana Diaz shared her Heartland creation and on today along with me,  Elina Temmes will be sharing her project! Be sure to check out these beautiful projects to  get some inspiration! 

aneweh4a9256

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Heartland is inspired by the beauty of Scandinavia. I have to admit I had to sit and brain storm for a while and look to Pintrest for some Scandinavian inspiration. Other then Ikea (I know, very sad!) I did not know a ton about the Scandinavian style.  Pat has a great inspiration page on Pintrest.  So using that along with other research, I found some themes that come though loud and clear.  It is simple, fresh and minimalist.  Oh, and their beautiful landscapes! So for my photos I brought in the color red, landscapes, clean simple lines and of course I had to style my daughter’s hair up in braids. Too bad she does not have super blond hair, maybe a good dye job is in order. Just kidding! Hahahaha!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

aneweh4a9254

For my project I used:

Blomma Garden Pastiche in Voile and Unn Cross Pine in Cotton for the bodice. I have been obsessed with Voile lately! It is dreamy the way it moves and it is quite easy to sew with.

aneweh4a9115-copy

The dress pattern was made using the Emily pattern by Violette Field Threads.

aneweh4a9019-copy

See how the Voile has so much body and movement! Swoosh!!!

aneweh4a8891-copy-2

aneweh4a8893

We want to see your photos! Use #PatBravoDesign #TheHeartlandBlogTour #HeartlandFabrics when you post your photos! That way we can inspire each other!!
