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.

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!

 

Swoon Worthy

Fiona Kelly, of Tangled Blossom Design, posted stunning photos of 2 Donna bags from Swoon Patterns she sewed using Sis Boom Fabric. They are gorgeous!!

First up is this midnight blue beauty. Fiona used Beauty Queen Valerie  on the outside, lined it with Linky Love and has a Valerie zippered pocket inside too! A match made in heaven. I love this combination together. Perfection!

The second is also a midnight blue nautical stripe stunner from the Beauty Queen line with Katie Stripe on the outside along with Letty on the inside. Perfect for summer. Both bags were quickly snatched up from her Etsy shop, but Fiona can make more to order. Or give making your own Donna bag a whirl. We love Swoon patterns and their easy to follow directions.

I’m always so honored and inspired when you share your Sis Boom creations with me! They bring me such joy.  What have you been working on? Don’t be shy. Give me a shout on Facebook or Instagram.

 

Beach Boho Style

Our friends over at Hickity-Pickity sent me these gorgeous shots for their new summer collection using Caravelle Arcade. All I can say is WOWZERS. Have you seen anything cuter for little girls this summer??? They have outdone themselves again!

HP1

Holy summer cuteness! The top is called Beach Bandeaux and the bottom’s are Shelling Shorties! Loving the contrasting big bow on the back.

HP2

Perfectly cool and comfortable for a beach party or just hanging out in the backyard on a lazy summer day.

HP3

Who is ready for tea in these darling Twirly Sundresses?

HP4

Judy has such a talent for mixing the colors and patterns. I bet any little girl could dance the day away in one of these dresses!

HP5

Such much cuteness, I can’t take it! FABULOUS!

HP6

Any summer weddings coming up? These Tulle Sundresses complete with a beautiful tulle overlay with white seersucker skirt would be perfect! Thank you Hickity Pickity for designing and making inspiring clothing for little ones. I am honored you pick Sis Boom fabrics to bring your creations to life!

Tea time

Stop what you’re doing right now, grab yourself a cup or tea or coffee, and check out these darling tea mats Melissa Peda made over at 100 Billion Stars. Blues, pinks and big florals combine all my favorites into one easy sewing project!

Aren’t they smashing?! I can’t get enough of them. She used fabric from our newest line Caravelle Arcade. The darling pink monogram adds the perfect final touch. The best part is, these can be whipped up in a jiffy! Maybe surprise a dear friend, a favorite teacher, our invite your bestest friend over for tea and nibbley things on the back porch, and enjoy this glorious weather we are having.   Melissa was sweet enough to send me 4 of these, and I’m ever so grateful for the surprise. They really brightened up my weekend.

Quick projects that make a huge impact are one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. How about you? I love seeing what you’ve been up to. Don’t be shy. Share with me on Facebook or Instagram.

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.

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!
