Hellooo, fabulous makers!
Do you know what I love about spring? I love the fact that you wear bright colors without feeling obnoxious. You can justify your love for vibrant hues by saying you match the spring flowers, or because they make you happy. Regardless of what your reason to use bright colors is, I say embrace it! This is why for April’s color of the month we chose vibrant Fuchsia. This color is bold, happy, is a great accent to any project, and looks good on anyone!
To give you a little inspiration of things you can make with Fuchsia, I’ve chosen some of my favorite projects that you can make.
Let’s check them out!
1. Quilted Heart Pillow
To all the beginner sewists out there, one of the easiest projects you can start with is a small pillow. This heart shaped pillow made with the heart print (“Give Love”) from Letters fabrics is a great place to start. You can even quilt it for an extra touch of details!
For those of you who rather use this color as an accent, this quilt is perfect! The Play the Moments quilt made with Heart Melodies fabrics combines subtle pinks and neutrals with pops of fuchsia fabric for a unique touch without being overwhelming.
If you like to be bold with your wardrobe, these bright trousers are a fun fashion accessory to have this season. The tapered look combined with the subtle hand drawn roses fabric print will have you making a statement anywhere you go.
This cutie was shared with us by Eleri from Sew and Tell Project. We love how she combined prints with fuchsia from Fiesta Fun fabrics by Dana Willard to make this cute dress. I bet any little girl in your family will look adorable with this dress.
5. Flounce Top
Every girl needs that one tank that looks great for day and night outfits! After flipping through countless AGF look books, I think I found the one! This fuchsia flounce top made with this star burst print from Utopia Fabrics will look great with a light weight cardigan or a denim jacket.
6. DARE Pouch
Last but not least, a girl always has to keep her make-up or sewing notions stored in a cute pouch! The best thing about this is that you’ll never lose this bag because of the bright print from DARE fabrics by Pat Bravo.
So, what did you think? Is Fuschia your go-to color now? Feel free to let me know in the comments what you have made with this bright color.
