But before we get started with new designs I have a few of my latest releases to share with you today.
Introducing "Hair Dayz" - it is a Creative Card pattern (double sided A4 page format) which has both the pattern to make Scrunchies and these Hair Ties. Yes you heard it - Scrunchies are officially making a come back.!!
When my own two girls were in Primary School I used to cut up their old school Uniforms and then re-sew them into these Hair Ties. Originally just for my own girls - but the other school mums soon went crazy for them and I couldn't keep up at one point. I have made these also over the years for many of my friends little daughters and are great to use up scraps or lots of bright colourful fabrics. They make great gifts bundled together and the kids (and bigger kids!) go mad for them.
Following on from my Viv's Rose Quilt - this new Applique Cross Stitch inspired quilt is named "Watermelon Crush" and is all about summer fun! Ive teamed up Robert Kaufman Solid Linens and this Essex Linen in Aqua for the background to let the design shine through these solid fabrics.
And of course I couldn't go past using this Watermelon Smash fabric from Maude Asbury to use as backing. I am very much a believer in not just putting any backing on a quilt but using a more considered and thought out approach to add to your quilt rather than just see it as the "back". I carefully patterned matched the design and I love the back as much as the front in giving this quilt that perfect finishing touch.
And while we might have only just celebrated Christmas its never to early to get sewing to be well ready and inspired come this festive season. "Here Comes Santa" is a Pillow set featuring a machine pieced Santa pillow and an Applique "naughty or nice" pillow.
Both are included in the pattern so you can decorate your favourite spot for the Holiday season. Pillows are great to add some sparkle to your decorating or to gift at this time of year.
Use fabrics from your stash as I did in this set (using mostly Bonnie and Camille fabrics) or your favourite Holiday range.
As with all my patterns to - if you are a wholesale customer then all my designs can be found over at Creative Abundance here in Australia and through Checker Distributors over in the US.
I can't wait to share more with you this year with many quilts already literally, being quilted and more new designs being sewn up to inspire you to quilt, make, create and sew.
