YES!! New Fabric from Hilco freshly arrived today. I have photographed everything and am now working hard on getting everything listed. This may take a bit, since the children are off school!
For this Spring/Summer season I got a bigger variety of fabrics, but each bolt is only about 7 yards. Therefore popular prints could disappear quickly. I also want to remind everyone that once the fabric is gone, it is gone because these prints only get manufactured once and typically cannot be reordered.
Everything is listed here. I will fix the quality of some images as soon as my camera is fixed and will co operate better. As always, if you are just not sure please contact me and ask for swatches first.
Guess what??? I won the latest Spoonflower contest with my "Birds on a wire" fabric design!
I can tell you there is nothing better than to open your e-mail in the morning (in your Nick and Nora Pj's and a cup of coffee in hand but still blurry eyed) to find an e-mail from Stephen announcing the good news! Also it makes you wake up real fast and run around the house acting like Rocky. The children stared at me asking, if the Lottery tickets finally resulted in a major win but none the less were extremely happy for me despite the fact that we still won't take a trip to Disneyland. I knew the competition was great. 129 entries and a lot of really wonderful designs. To have won this challenge makes me feel double, extra good! So guess what? I will have a giveaway of my fabric "Birds on a wire" as soon as I have it in my hands to celebrate! Check back again in about 2 weeks :) Wooohoooooo :)))) !!!!!
For the longest time I felt too shy to attempt to sew with Nancy's extremely out of this world, awesome patterns were waves come alive. It boggled my mind how these super curvy pattern pieces could possibly come together under my hands and become clothing that my girls could actually wear. But they kept calling and calling... Seriously how can anyone resist clothing patterns that cannot be found any were else, totally unique and oh my goodness the wavy curves... how they make the fabric flow. Ah, sigh.. So I took a deep breath and set out to make a pair of Solana pants. Slowly trace the pattern pieces, carefully cut the fabric, really pay attention to the picture tutorial and... Hey presto! That wasn't so hard! So how about Lunada? That can't be too hard either. Nope a piece of cake :) Hermosa? Coming right up! Meanwhile I am not afraid of curves anymore... (Ok Laguna still boggles my mind a bit.. Nancy is really something to be able to think these patterns up!) and have sewed up quite a few wavy curves and always, always loving the end product in my hands.
Solana, Lunada and Hermosa can be found here. The beautiful bird fabric for the Lunada pants is available here and the shirt that is sewn out of the very popular Campan knit is a Quiara.
