Another Antalya

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

When I drafted the Antalya dress pattern, I made a lot of samples. A few I never finished, or never even intended to finish, but a few turned out pretty cute, so I thought I would share. There are so many stunning Antalyas sewn by super talented bloggers. These are just a few that come to mind - here, here, here, here, here and here. The pattern was released through Willow & Co and can be purchased here.













A FREE pattern and Color Me Fabric Tour

Monday, May 11, 2015

To download The Vasilisa Top pattern go HERE

It's my turn for the Color Me Fabric tour by Mouse House Creations. I am excited for my friend, Hayley, and happy she was able to bring her great idea to life. Not only the concept is great, the quality of fabric is superb. The paisley print reminded me of Russian fairy tales - of beautiful princesses and noble princes, of Koschei the Deathless, Baba Yaga and the magical Fiery Bird. Of course, all the magic happened in far away kingdoms in enchanted forests filled with good and evil creatures. The childhood fairy tales and the fabric became my inspiration for the top.


















The Franklin Dress for Flip this Pattern

Friday, May 1, 2015

I am one of the competitors for the Flip this Pattern at Frances Suzanne. I would love your vote. :) To vote go here. This is  my version of The Franklin dress by Brooklyn Pattern Company. I was excited to see it as the pattern to flip, since I love the style of the dress. It is comfortable, child friendly, stylish and unique. It reminds me of Japanese patterns that are so popular today.

A Bunny in a Bubble Pocket - a Free Pattern and Tutorial.

Monday, February 23, 2015

Today quite a few of the sewing/DIY bloggers are honoring Anne Weaver of Craft Gossip. Jessica of the Sewing Rabbit is the mastermind behind the idea, and I think it was great of her to organize it. If you haven't been to Craft Gossip, it's a great source of inspirational projects and tutorials. Anne featured quite a few bloggers, including me, and we are grateful for her support. My project was featured when I had been blogging for a very short period of time, and it brought a smile to my face. Thank you.


The Senna Tote

Monday, February 9, 2015

This was the first Senna tote (the second one is here) that I made for the Quilt Market that happened, well, a while ago. The fabric is from the gorgeous line by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics, Handcrafted. The fabric is truly handcrafted, it's hand painted.  The bottom of the bag is made from linen, also from Andover Fabrics.
