Explore Amy Sinibaldi's imaginary world with Dollhouse fabrics

Hello fabulous makers,

I hope you’re staying cozy this winter and that you’re doing a lot of sewing! Do you ever get those moments where you drift off into a daydream while you’re sewing? This always happens to me even when sewing isn’t involved. During these moments I tend to get thoughts about my days as a kid when I played pretend with dolls. Those were blissful days…

I’m sure you’ll feel the same way when you see Amy Sinibaldi’s new collection Dollhouse fabrics. From the time you start sewing with this collection, a wave of childhood memories will come to life. This range of fabrics is about an imaginary world of pattern and design where play, simplicity, and romanticism are the very essence. Although, you may think this collection is only for children, I beg to differ!  The color palette is filled with soft grays and rosy pinks combined with delicate floral and graphic elements that create a timeless and feminine look for makers of all ages.

An endless love for flowers: Wild Bloom by Bari J.

Hello, beautiful sewists!

Raise your hand if you love flowers as much as you love sewing! I know I sure do! Ever since I was a kid, I have fond memories of gardening with my mom (who also loves flowers), visiting botanical gardens, and when I learned how to draw it was the first thing I was inspired by. It’s no surprise that flowers make the world more beautiful! Especially when you incorporate them in fabrics, quilts, and sewing projects.

I know that during the fall it’s not conventional to use many flowers; but I encourage you to go against the current and use florals all year long. One designer that always makes us fall in love with florals no matter what season it is, is Bari J. She has knocked it out the park with her newest collection, Wild Bloom fabrics. From sketchy flower branches, bright bouquets, and vibrant hand painted blooms, this collection will have you dreaming of lovely gardens.

Another thing that makes this collection one of a kind, are the vibrant colors that splash each print! I’m currently obsessed with this pouch that combines one the collection’s florals with the “Sashiko Florette Coral” print because of how eye catching it looks with these bright colors. Isn’t is stylish?

OK, so now that we’ve devoted our love for flowers, you have to check out the Wild Bloom lookbook! Explore all the trendy outfits, stunning quilts, and projects for sewists of all levels.

 

 

Bring a dose of color into your home with the “Splendorous” free quilt pattern.

Explore the Free Spirited World of Indie Boheme by Pat Bravo

Hello, beautiful sewists!

Lately I’ve been thinking about how sewing is a craft that you can always experiment with. With so many designers, fabric collections, and beautiful free quilt patterns available you can never get bored! The style that has been catching my eye is the boho trend. There’s something so carefree about this style and it’s so stylish in a funky way (plus I feel connected to it because my mom calls me the “bohemian” of the family”).

One collection that portrays boho style beautifully is Pat Bravo’s new collection Indie Boheme fabrics. This collection is the continuation of her successful first Indie Collection. Indie Boheme combines Pat’s love for faraway influences, eye-catching colors, and bold designs to create a free spirited range of prints.

Every time I look at this collection, I simply dream of flowy tunics and maxi dresses!

But boho style isn’t just for garments! You can add a creative touch to your home with boho decor with it. Think patchwork pillows, unique quilts, and much more. I invite you to flip through the Indie Boheme lookbook to find inspirations for all kinds of boho inspired projects.

 

Add a new quilt pattern to your collection by downloading the “Wildflowers” free quilt pattern.

If you would like to contrast the bold prints with a few blenders, here are a few we’ve curated for you. Aren’t they divine?
