Bug a Boo

Bug a boo is here! How cute is this fabric! I find it hard to decide which one is my favourite but I know my kids will love all of them!

This fabric just seems to depict what summer is all about! We have made up some Fat Quarter Sets & Half Meter sets to make it easier if you can't decide! And have a peek at these great ideas for some inspiration!

Great and here are the fabrics! All available online now!

Adornit - All of it!

There are some great designs coming in all the time but this has to be one of my favourites. The lovely ladies from Adornit have created a range of fabrics that have such a unique colour palette with the most intricate  detail is gorgeous

These lasses from Utah, USA are a home grown family run business (woman run for that matter!) and what fantastic work they have done! The business started a while back with their mum Carolee and now all three daughters are fully on board.

The fabric now in great demand but slim supply in the USA has only just arrived in Australia & New Zealand, so as you could only imagine there was no doubt in my mind to get their entire range in! There are 3 different ranges and lots and lots and lots of different colours!
And  hence with over 40 bolts of fabric is has taken a little long to get it all ready for you! 

First off ... Long Live Vintage...

Vin-tage "Old enough to be in fashion again"

There are two colour palette's to choose from (as if you could!) one warm and one cool.

First up we have the warm brown & tan palette, filled with burnt orange, berry bursts and cosy browns

then the icy blues & smokey greys of the cool palette

The lovely Denise from Hot 4 Handbags let me share her gorgeous creations using some of these fabrics.


Then if things could not get better ...

Pink Dazzled came along! Just to temp us even further! Gorgeous pale &  hot pinks (who would have thought?) greys and plums all mixed up together reminds me of a summer smoothie.

Once again Debbie shows of how great these colours work together!

Find all the above great fabrics online now
 and next week the last of this range is coming.... here is a sneak peak 

Have a great weekend, happy sewing
Warm Regards

Long live vintage ....

I am super excited just went to our local school fete and picked up this little chair for $2. I have been thrifting about looking for chairs for the Sew Pretty room (where we will soon be starting classes)

I have already saved some of the beautiful Lecien Fabric for this task, but when I popped the chair in front of all the other bolts, it's as if they were screaming "pick me, pick me!".

On the way home my mind was travelling to all the possibilities with this forgotten chair... I could definitely invisage some retro boys fabric on top and placed in the corner of my boys room.. mmm another project for another day! 

Of course inspiration has to come from somewhere and this awesome mum seems to do just that on a daily basis!
