12 Days of Christmas with AGF - Quick Gifts for Everyone on Your List

Blog-header

Hi makers!

 

My name is Karli and I am so excited to begin writing some blog posts for AGF! I work on tutorials and project creation here at AGF, so I am thrilled to be able to share my love of sewing and quilting with all you creative individuals, starting with these 12 Days of Christmas. 

 

The holidays are upon us and with Christmas only 19 short days away, I’m sure everyone is busy sewing and quilting away to finish up all their gifts to give. Along with that, it’s time to double-check and make sure you have everyone covered on your gift-giving list. Starting today, December 6th, and ending on the 21st (minus weekends), a new quick and easy DIY gift idea will be shared on Instagram and TikTok that includes home decor, gift wrapping, and more all for free! While these ideas don’t include 11 pipers piping, 5 golden rings, or a partridge in a pear tree, they are still sure to be loved by any recipient. So grab your favorite AGF fabrics and get ready to sew because these tutorials are coming in hot! 

 

Make sure to check into this post daily for each new project to be uploaded!

Happy Sewing!

The Playful World of Petite Circus Fabrics by Alexandra Bordallo 

Petite-Circus_banner

Here in South Florida, during this time of year, there are a couple of very fun festivals and circus events happening that are always so exciting! Going there with good company and of course, all the fair food will always bring a smile to my face. Once I laid my eyes on Alexandra Bordallo’s Petite Circus collection, I was instantly brought to this happy place! Reminding me of all the fun times I had when I was a kid going to these fairs, waiting in line to go on the rides and having good conversations with friends, and eating my favorite treats like popcorn and cotton candy.

I was so happy to hear the story behind this collection, as it’s quite the special one for Alexandra! She dedicated this line to her son that was prematurely born, and her journey through taking care of a baby at the NICU and her older son at home. This collection is for all the strong babies and their families who are going through a similar experience.

Add oodles of whimsical charm to any kid’s room or nursery with the available 12 quilting cotton prints! This collection is filled with colorful illustrations of circus animals, cotton candy, popcorn, and adorable little clowns that will create joyful moments for all little ones alike.

Petite Circus also has some substrate options available! There is one knit print called “Rearing Horses Dim” that would be ideal for apparel for the little ones or even some snuggly bed sheets. Prepare to snuggle up this season with the cutest flannel prints, there is “Opening Act Shuffle” that features small yet mighty clowns that are perfect for the backing of your quilts and “Enjoy The Snow” flannel print that has tons of fun elements like tickets, food stands, and circus tents! 

Add to the fun with these matching AGF Elements:

Oval Elements in Peacock & Pomelo.

Squared Elements in Teal, Lox, and Honeycomb.

Pure Solids in Cozumel Blue, Coral Reef, Apricot Crepe, Honeydew, Icy Mint, Turmeric,  and Warm Wave.

 

Bring these prints to life with our “Merry Go Round” free quilt pattern with a whopping size of 90 by 90 inches, where you’ll definitely have a blast appliqueing the zebras featured on the carousel!
