Color Me Blog Tour-Dream in Color



Hello, Sorry it has been so quiet around here. I have been busy sewing, sewing, sewing! ūüôā

I am back today to share with you a new FABRIC Collection by Hayley from Mouse House¬†Creations¬†and Michael Miller fabrics. Color Me is a collection of fabric designed for both Boys and Girls that you can COLOR on. Yes!! I said COLOR!! This soft Quilter’s Cotton weight fabric was a perfect substrate for coloring and sewing with.¬† I forgot to add a hard board between the fabric layers when the kids were coloring it, but no worries because it did not bleed through! SWEET!

Coming up with my plan for the blog tour I wanted to sew a clothing item that was good for both Boys and Girls and BIG and little children. My kids LOVE to jump into PJ’s the minute they get home so this was the perfect opportunity to make¬†some PJ’S.¬† Art in the day, Dream in Color at night, right!?!?!

So let the games begin! Interesting trying to mange 3 kids! Ummmm, note to self: the dissolution that all of them would be standing still and smiling at the same time,  NOT going to happen!

Before we got our Art on¬†we had to get some before pics…

It cracks me up -One of those kids has been in front of the camera way too much!

I used Whimsy Couture Easy Boy/Girl Pants

¬†LET’S COLOR!!!!!!


Miss S. who is almost 4 yrs old was very excited to color on her PJ’s-Oh my! I hope she does not go home and do that on her other Pj’s Mom may get a little mad at me-Eeek!

Mr. L was very excited to have fabric that he could play with.  I found him last night sitting quietly at the table coloring his pants. I may need to make MORE!!
