6 Projects You'll Love Made with Pink Fabrics

Hey there, crafty friends and pink lovers!

Do you remember when my friend Ola, revealed the color of February? We spread the news that it was Pink and everyone’s hearts melted! Especially, with February being all about love because of Valentine’s Day. Since we also love how sweet and delicate pink can be, we decided to share our devotion for this color by sharing some awesome projects you can make with this month’s ColorFun prints.

Now, let’s talk about these cute projects.

  1. Garland Featuring Pandalicious Fabrics

Garland

I love how Alisa from the blog A Stitch in Between created this delicate garland that can be used to decorate a girl’s bedroom or a fun birthday party. The pink cherry blossom fabric from Pandalicious Fabrics by Katarina Roccella really makes the little lantern shapes stand out!

  1. Misses’ Keyhole-Closure Tank Top

With spring less than a month away, it’s time to bring out your favorite pastel garments. Perhaps, you can even do a little selfish sewing? This top made with the pink daisy fabric from Wonderful Things by Bonnie Christine is so sweet for the season!  I bet it would be a fabulous addition to your wardrobe (click name for pattern)!

  1. Ruffle Baby Bib and Onesie

Heart onesie

If you’re a mommy looking to keep your baby girl clean and stylish, this bib and onesie is perfect! The pink heart fabric from Paperie by Amy Sinibaldi will make any project for your baby even more loveable.

  1. Misses’ Sleepwear

Bunny top

Ok, so what’s better than snuggling under a cozy quilt? Um… snuggling under it in comfy PJs of course! These cute pair of jammies featuring the pink bunny fabric from Anna Elise by Bari J. are a dream. Plus, they’re made with knits. I dare you to make some and have sweet dreams (click name for pattern)!

  1. Buck Forest Embroidery Hoop By Cheri Lehnow

The moment I saw this embroidery hoop with the pink Buck Forest print, I was all heart eyes. You can make a few of these with all of our pink ColorFun prints and re-decorate you sewing room! Thanks for the cute idea Cheri [see more of her cute things on Instagram: @tinkerellen]!

  1. Girl Dress Featuring Playground Fabrics

Last but not least, our final pink pick is this cute girl’s dress made with Playground by Amy Sinibaldi that Sems Fabrics posted on Instagram. There’s something so cute about seeing a little girl in a Pink dress! Make one for your little one and have them twirl into spring.

"Quilt As You Go" Mini Stocking Tutorial

Hello fabulous makers!

As you all know we are only a few days from Christmas day! Isn’t this crazy…time flies! If you’re like me, you’re probably putting all the finishing touches on all your gifts. One thing that drives me crazy about the holidays is that I put so much effort into wrapping gifts nicely, but in the end you just rip everything up. Plus, throwing away all the ripped paper isn’t eco-friendly (I at least try to recycle).

In order to find an alternative to wrapping some of my gifts, I’ve decided to make mini stockings I can give to my friends with small gifts like gift cards, candies, etc. I thought this would be a cute way of presenting my gifts to them while giving them something handmade. And... since we're in South Florida I decided to give my stocking a tropical flair with the vivid fabrics from Here Comes the Fun by Sew Caroline. :)

Here comes the fun stocking

For those of you looking for a cute way of giving presents, I’ve prepared a tutorial on how to make the mini stocking. It’s a fun project where you can use scraps and if you’re a beginner sewist (like me) you can learn the “quilt as you go” technique. Check it out!

I hope you all enjoyed this holiday tutorial!

Happy sewing!

Let’s continue having fun with green and red fabrics - holiday sewing patterns

Hello awesome makers!

We are so happy by all the positive feedback we got about our Holiday Colorfun! I am glad that you love the colors combination and today it’s time to inspire you with some projects that can be sewn with the featured christmas fabrics. Red is a captivating color that keeps us warm on cold winter days and green is an color of hope. When you combine those together you can create an amazing Christmas mood. So let’s sew!

  1. Asymetrical blouse

Isn’t this pine tree fabric print just perfect for this year’s Christmas eve? What I especially like about the pattern is the asymmetric hem that is a bit longer in the back than in the front. :)

  1. Reversible Baby Shoes

These shoes will make a great holiday gift for your little one. Since there is no exposed seams in the pattern, they are fully reversible. Use emerald green fabric for the outside and another Christmas fabric print for the outside of the shoes. You will be able to choose the side depending on the color of your baby's outfit.

  1. Straight and  Steady Table Runner

How about sewing this table runner for your Christmas table? You can make it with traditional Christmas colors: red and green fabrics but I think that this navy blue print with gold stars( Midnight Roof) from the Wild and Free collection by Maureen Cracknell matches the holiday atmosphere perfectly as well!

  1. Hobo Bag

You will make any girl happy by making her a beautiful bag this holiday season. I especially like the fussy cut details on the front of the bag. They add a special touch to it. :)

5.View Ridge Top

You can never have enough floral tops in your closet! I love this red floral fabric print from our organic fabric collection “Hello Ollie”. The gathered front detail adds an extra feminine touch to this top.

Take a look once again at the prints featured in our Holiday Edition of Colorfun. Did you know that you can buy all the ColorFun fabric bundles in Fat Quater shop? Wouldn’t that just be perfect Christmas gift for a crafty person in your life? Or maybe just wrap it and put it under Christmas tree for yourself. ;)

Happy Holiday sewing!

The Wondrous World of Blithe by Katarina Roccella

Hello fabulous makers!

Isn’t it crazy how we’re only a few days away from the first day of winter? Unlike us in South Florida, many of you are already experiencing colder weather. One thing that’s great about the cool temperatures is that you feel more encouraged to stay indoors and sew! This is the perfect time to work on all your UFO’s, start new cozy quilts, and sew all kinds of winter garments.

One collection that’s ideal for winter is Blithe by Katarina Roccella. This beautiful collection is filled with frosty trees, confident deer, and subdued colors that will have you sewing in a winter wonderland. We must admit that this season, we’ll be experiencing winter vicariously through this collection.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Blithe_PJs_3

One thing I truly love about Blithe is that it was inspired by a beautiful quote from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”  Katarina beautifully translates this quote visually through her use of grays, deep plum, and cool shades of blue.

Swatches

We prepared a wondrous look book for you to feast your eyes on mesmerizing quilts, comfy garments, and classy home décor. Check it out!

 

Oh, And this "Windowscape" FREE QUILT PATTERN is waiting for you to sew it! Doesn't it look cozy?
