As you know Circa is truly sweeping the nation and because of that I am holding tight to mine. I have a photoshoot to do!! But I thought that because all of you mean the world to me that I would at least offer up half yards of all of Circa for all my pals out there. So here’s the deal. The comments have to be here for us to really know what the heck is going on. So share with your neighbors we love that about all of you. Tell us your favorite Sis Boom story if you like but you don’t have too or maybe how you know Jennifer (me) or maybe how you got into sewing. We love your stories!! Tell us about your business and what it means to you. Short and sweet , we love getting to know you. If you know me from facebook / twitter you’ll know I try to reach out to everyone. As we are growing I’m still the same girl who launched Sis Boom and know the heart of what goes on here is because of all of you. It’s a special place with lots of special people and it does take a village.
So leave your message here and you will be entered to win a big stack of 1/2 yard of all Circa’s. I kid you not.Offer ends June 15th at midnight so everyone gets a chance.
We love our Betty Ann pattern named for a beloved mentor of mine. This Maxi looks so terrific on Jeanne Hamling, one of our long time testers daughters. Look at the shoes my friends , that’s what caught my eye!!! I love her confidence and pride in wearing one of mom’s creations!!! All of Jeanne’s kids are beautiful and I had the pleasure of meeting this one Miss Lily out in Utah!! Folks I’m sorry I won’t be at quilt market but I will be thinking of all of you!!! This pattern can be found under patterns on this site as well as many other pattern platforms! This fabric is part of our Crazy Love collection and can be found here. Thank you Glam Fabrics on Etsy.. In Australia we found some here. Thank you Fabric Traders AU
So there you have it , a pretty girl in a pretty handmade dress and coordinated shoes..We love you Lily!!
Erica Hill of Stripes and Ruffles tested this wonderful pattern for Whimsy Couture . We are loving this one in the Crazy Love fabrics. What a wonderful combo. I must say that daughter of Erica’s is adorable!!!!! I am smitten!! The fabrics can be found here. and here Also try ebay and etsy.
Please also if you are a store or brick and mortar and are reading this please add your store and location. We have lots of readers and folks looking for fabric locally. We will also put it on facebook!!!
Nice job Erica and we will be watching for further great looks from you!!!
So I had my friend Maritza Bermudez who worked on Happy Home with me create this beautiful canopy just like the one in Happy Home. Once the hardware is up you can take this and change it out. I can’t get over this. All these wonderful bouquets cascading down. I tell you I just will never get enough of Circa and I hope you don’t either. So for a fraction of what designer fabrics would cost you can have the same upscale look!!! Seriously this could cost up to $1000.00 to $1500.00 in Ct. easily!!! DIY this was $160.00 for fabric!! For those of us obsessed with fabric that is a drop in the bucket. Back to back these fabrics are just so perfect together. Please note nothing matches, I love just throwing together what I love!!! When you surround yourself with things you love that is your signature look!! So I hope you like what you see not at all fussy, just impromptu. soon the Circa Pillows will be done and we will show you some whole cloth quilts. Enjoy the photos and of course Mr. George in the middle of it all.

Check out this stunner from Jack and Mae!!!! We woke up and just had to share..lots of tutorials on line just google rag quilts. These make great gifts because they are not as labor intensive a good beginner quilt I should say. My daughter made one at sewing camp when she was 12. I love the mix of Bohemia and the exuberance of color. Such a beauty. Sarah and Liz we love what you are up too keep it coming we want to see. They also make sweet tea wallets so you are never without your fave..very cool.

Zabtree Couture you have quite the eye. OMG it takes a special vision to put these fabrics together in this ingenious way but I think the theorey is if you love it others will too. I never would have put these together but omg I can’t stand it ,thrilled with the outcome and I know it is going to inspire others to really just may I say “CLASH” if it feels right do it!!! Sometimes a matchy matchy world can close us off from amazing options but friends of Sis Boom all know to do whatever their heart calls them to do! We see it over and over with the folks highlighted on the blog. We love your signature, we want to see what you are up to!! These photos give permission for others to do the same. I get in trouble because I’m not so matchy matchy but my heart flattens a bit when all the blues match, takes the fun out of creativity. There is an energy that we don’t see other places when folks express themselves in this colorful way. Zabtree you rock my casbah!! Theresa Abel Martin you go girl. Find her on facebook.
PS. take a look at the lining of the dress!
