Hola! I am proud to be a stop on the Fiesta Fun Fabrics blog tour today!
Last fall, I had the privilege of attending Quilt Market with Simple Life Pattern Company. Right before market, I started seeing sneaks of the Fiesta Fun fabric line by Dana Willard. I drooled over the swatches and waited anxiously for this line to be released.
I actually made a few things for the look book when the line released such as this Simple Life Pattern Company Sophie.
I have a secret.
I suspect that many of you share the same secret.
I buy pretty fabric. And then I hoard it. Because what if I make something with it but then a pattern that would have suited it better comes along?? WHAT THEN??
I bought a bunch of the Michael Miller Magic wovens on preorder, and they’ve sat in my stash ever since. But then I received a copy of Ellie and Mac‘s Be Confident Tunic and it screamed for the whimsy that this gorgeous Magic fabric provided.
Can you really have too many bodysuits for your babies?
That’s a trick question because the answer is no. No you can’t!
Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop is expanding their Lullaby Line with the Cardigan Bodysuit.
This bodysuit (or onesie, if you prefer) has the look of a classic cardigan with the diaper-changing ease of a snap placket at the crotch. The pattern fits sizes newborn through 4t, and the newborn size will fit most 18″ dolls. There is an option for a faux undershirt, and a short sleeve or long sleeve with cuffs.
Genie choose to make her little man’s with comfy cotton lycra from the Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. The stripe is from the Knit Basics collection (Yarn Dyed 3/8″ Gray & White Stripe, and it was a lovely fabric. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a bargain line of fabric, but this is a nice weight, soft, and has great recovery. The blue can be found here.
A few days ago, wind chill values in my neck of the words were 50 degrees Fahrenheit BELOW zero. Yes, you read that correctly.
So what does a rational woman do in this circumstance? She signs up to test an adorable swimsuit for her little girl!
It has been awhile since I’ve tested a pattern. Lately, while I’ve been creating a lot and working on various projects around my house, I just haven’t had time to do a test with a deadline. But who could pass up this cuteness? Now you don’t need to wait any longer to sew a cute suit or leo for your girl! The Swan Lake Leotard and Swimsuit has released and is available for purchase at the release price of $6.75 today (1/19).
Amy from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop has done it again with this adorable Zipster Romper!
I think my little mister likes it, don’t you?
This romper is designed with a lined hood and cuffed arms and legs. You have lots of options, too–a full or partial zip, a patch or kangaroo pocket, a snap crotch for diaper changes, and an optional gusset (which is AMAZING for my little guy’s fluffy cloth-diapered tooshie!). The Zipster is available in sizes newborn through 4T.
Peekaboo Pattern Shop has released an exciting new pattern just in time for holiday sewing – the Dreamland Nightgown! With two length options – knee and full – and both short and long sleeve options, this pattern is perfect for all seasons.
The pattern is designed to be made from knits. This particular one is made from a fun Doodles knit print from Joann Fabrics accented with fuschia cotton lycra from Peekaboo Fabric Shop. One thoughtful feature of this pattern is that the front is same as the back making it impossible for little girls to accidentally put their nightgowns on backwards.
I tested the newly-released Wonderland Wings by Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. The Wonderland Wings pattern includes three unique wing shapes: butterfly, fairy, and dragon. Testers also used the shapes to make angel and bat wings! This is a very versatile pattern to be used for Halloween or everyday dress up. I finished each pair in about 2 hours from cut to finish. The wings are made with 2 layers of very stiff interfacing to give them a nice shape! I was intimidated at first to sew with two layers of Peltex 71F on my little machine, but the tutorial includes tips and suggestions to make it easier.
