Apple Farm Blog Tour

Today is my stop on the Apple Farm Blog Tour.  You all know that I just adore Elea Lutz designs and this latest collection for Penny Rose Fabrics is just her cutest.  I really love the small scale prints with florals and ginghams and the cutest little characters for which Elea has such a talent for.

Elea has such a style and flair for these sweet reproduction style prints.  I just love the cute detail and her addition of the brown in this collection was just perfect.  I really had trouble choosing a favourite print as it kept changing.  This is a great range that will be a lovely addition to your stash.

The colours Elea has chosen for this range are just so bright and the prints mix and match so well.  I knew it was going to be hard to stop at only one project and with the Apples I thought it perfect for some "Back to School" inspired projects.

This "Rainbow Drawing Folder" is one of our Sew Along Patterns.  I decided to change the star pattern we usually use and drew an apple instead for the front Appliqué.  

There is just the perfect mix of busy prints along with co-ordinates in this range. 

With lots of places for pens/pencils and book this Rainbow Drawing Folder has pockets also with zips to keep things safe inside to make it great when travelling.

Another great school inspired project I made with Apple Farm is my
These are great fun and make a great gift to make.

I told you I had trouble stopping at one project to make with this range - this "On the Go Backpack"  by Heather Bailey is just a great pattern.  
I love the drawstring detail and the front pocket is a perfect size.  I saw this pattern on display at Quilt Market and was so excited when it was released.  

I will definitely be making more of these and think that they would be great as Christmas gifts.  The Yellow Gingham is definitely my favourite print from this range.

Apple Farm is now available and in Australia is Distributed by Millhouse Collections.  Just such a sweet range from Elea - I can't wait to see what she has in store for her next range.

Both the "Rainbow Drawing Folder" and "Colour My World Pencil Case" are available as a PDF download or wholesale through Creative Abundance.

Next up on the Apple Farm Blog Hop is Anorina and Kimberly. Hop over today and tomorrow to see what they made!

Happy Sewing
