Modified Angie and Gabriella Fae for Summer

The ever talented Jeanine, customer service for Sis Boom Pattern Co and Scientific Seamstress Fan page made this gorgeous modified back maxi Angie with bold ric rac and long Gabriela Fae’s for her little girls. Maxi dresses have been a popular warm weather dress for a few years, and these are stunners!

Head over to the Scientific Seamstress blog to learn how to modify the Angie back. For the long Gabriela Fae dresses, Jeanine added a front panel and quilting details. Just darling.

All 4 pdf patterns will be available for purchase on Sew News starting on June 22. In addition to the patterns, you’ll be able to purchase and watch 30 minutes videos of Carla and I walking you through the patterns from start to finish.

Here are a few Shellie Clutches Carla made as teacher and bus driver gifts. I think the addition of a vintage brooch is icing on the cake.

I can’t wait for you all to start working on these fun, new patterns starting June 22.  Don’t forget to share with me on Facebook and Instagram.

 

Groovy, baby

It’s been a little over a month since Caravelle Arcade sailed into the stores, and I’m thrilled to see all the projects you’re sharing with me on Facebook and Instagram. You guys are a talented bunch!

Last week my favorite photographer in the world, Tim Geaney, stopped by and we took some amazing photos of Sis Boom patterns in Caravelle Arcade. You can create the same look below by using Bonnie in purple in our Judy Fancy Pants pattern topped off with Rebecca in fuchsia in our Devon Top. Have lots of small scraps of your favorite Sis Boom fabrics left over from various sewing projects? A decoupage guitar is the perfect accessory! In this YouTube video I show you how to decoupage a suitcase, but the same technique can be applied to anything including a guitar.

If you are local to me in the southwestern CT area, RUN don’t walk to see Christie at Christie’s Quilting Boutique because she has a windfall of Sis Boom Fabric especially the Caravelle Arcade line. Everyone else, call your local quilt shop or shop online. Hope you’re having a fabulous week. XOXO!

As you celebrate Memorial Day in your neck of the woods; whether its a small town parade, BBQ with friends and family, a relaxing day at the beach, maybe sewing something special with your favorite Sis Boom fabric, will you take a moment to think about our wonderful veterans? I love our vets and am so thankful for their service and sacrifice for our country.

Have a fantastic, safe and fun weekend.

Pillow Talk

Sew 4 Home made this delightful round piped pillow with a gathered top and I couldn’t be more in love. Comfortable, colorful and easy to make. The darling contrasting covered button and piping is icing on the cake!

Pillow

They used 2 fabrics from an oldie but goodie Sis Boom line called Happy Land. Since Happy Land can be hard to find these daysmay I recommend our newest line of fabric, Caravelle Arcade? It launched at the beginning of May and would be perfect for this project!

I’m thinking Jessica in blue paired with Bonnie in blue….

Hop on over to Sew 4 Home and give this project a whirl. I think a few these comfy pillows, tossed on your favorite sofa, with a copy of Happy Home would be a perfect way to spend a relaxing spring afternoon. What have you been making with Caravelle Arcade? I’d love to see them!

Job Perks

Can you keep a secret? Since I totally trust my Paganelli Peeps, I’m going to let it all out…just don’t tell my boss…

You guys, I have the BEST job in the world! I get to be surrounded by incredible people and breathtaking fabrics all day. We chat, we work, we craft, there are puppies here…what more could you ask for? I feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to have landed a job with Sis Boom that if someone dared me to eat dirt, I’d totally do it!

So, what has me jumping for joy today? The answer is: the job perks, of course!

Yesterday the most incredible dress arrived at the office and I got to try it on!!

patchwork

This patchwork Good Company (in stores November 2014) dress was inspired by a J.Crew silhouette and the seamstress absolutely nailed it! Not only was it super comfortable, but it ended up being super convenient during a business meeting as well. When speaking about Jennifer’s upcoming line, Good Company (did I mention it will be available in stores November 2014), I simply stood up to reveal what was to come!

What else did I do for the hour I spent in the dress? Craft and snap some selfies, of course!

Hope everyone enjoys the sneak peek at the collection!
