Off to Quilt Market-Wild and Free

Hello Beautiful!!

Well, I won’t be at Quilt Market but my clothes will be!!

Let me tell you a little story…

A few weeks ago I was sitting in my car waiting for my daughter to get out of school and while playing on my phone my Instagram popped up stating that Maureen Cracknell had started following me. I thought WOW that is exciting! But I just figured she was going through her followers and following them back, how NICE. I even took a picture and showed it to a few fellow seamstress (I totally understand if you can laugh at me now) . Well About 15 min later my Instagram popped up again stating that I had a message from Maureen. I clicked to read it and was only able to read the first sentence before I lost my breath and went into complete shock. By now my daughter was  getting into the car and was instantly concerned because her Mother just kept saying, “OMG , OMG, OMG!” I put the phone down and managed to focus long enough to get us safely home (3 min away).  As soon as the car was in park, my phone was back on.  I finished reading her message asking if I could make some clothes for her booth at Quilt Market. It took me about 30min to come down from Cloud 9 and reply back to her (she probably thought I was just too busy to reply right away, ha).  Of course I said YES!!  Thank you Maureen for making my YEAR!!! Also thank you for being SO sweet and down to earth!

I also told her that I LOVED her new collection and had already preordered her Limited Edition fabric collection from Art Gallery named- Wild and Free . Don’t you just love that name! Makes you want to run free in a field with clothes made with her beautiful fabric 🙂

Her fabric will consist of Woven, Knits and Voile Fabric and will be available for purchase in November. I had the pleasure of using her Knit Fabric: Sun Tracks and Woven Path. I also used Art Gallery Solids in Honey and Cherry (or you can use London Red)

Before I show off what I made- if you have not check out or follow Maureen’s Blog ,Maureen Cracknell Handmade, you are missing out of one of the BEST blog!!!

Fall Edition Part 1

Hello Beautiful,

IMG_4557

Thank you A, T and D for a job well done at the Photo Shoot!!

Are you ready for Fall?? Ok, some of you may not be.  Especially if you lived back east and had to live with that crazy winter.  After all it did get into the 60’s here in So Cal for a while, ‘wink’.  But since Fall is really all about the clothes, I’m really excited to finally be able to start sharing my Fall Clothing Collection of Leggings, Skirts, Pinafores, Pants (Coming soon) and of course Dresses!  I have short and long sleeve styles and most items will be offered in sizes 2T-8Yr.

Drumroll please……Let me introduce you to Part 1 of my release…

I chose Art Gallery’s Arizona Fabric Collection (I am secretly hoping they take this collection off the limited edition line and keep it forever)

The new Knit by Art Gallery is incredibly soft with great stretch and recover.  The colors are vibrant and work so well together.  What more could I ask for?  Everything they touch is just perfection.

CBC Clothing Collection

Hello Beautiful!

289

I’m excited to share with you a little project I have been working on with a few of my VERY talented sewing friends. Together we have created a Clothing collection all made with the fabric from Art Gallery’s, Indian Summer. There are 7 pieces in the collection, all offered in a range of sizes (baby thru youth), all of them amazing!!

271

We all chose Art Gallery’s Indian Summer because of its ability to be used for boys and girls clothing. It is also a great color scheme for summer and fall. Indian Summer has been one of my favorite fabric collections to work with.

The fabric I chose to make my dress is called Menagerie Onyx

I chose a CKC pattern called Cora . I love the flowing style of the dress style that compliments the soft hand of Art Gallery fabric
