I bow down to Carla Crim on this one Not as easy as most of our patterns the Ethan and Marco patterns will challenge you to take the next step. In true Sis Boom form Carla writes it so the beginner can stay engaged and create something wonderful for the boys/ men in your life. Carla will not bring a pattern to market that all levels cannot create. We are so excited about this! Folks were so enthusiastic about seeing a men’s shirt in Happy Home that we decided to offer it in our pattern collection. Kudos to the Scientific Seamstress for bringing it to life!!! So let’s create!!! They are in our shop and will be distributed to our sellers very soon.Please note these are long sleeves with cuffs we forgot to show you them with the cuff..next photoshoot. Fabric found here. Thanks Hawthorne Threads!

Australia is one of our largest demographics so whenever you work with Sis Boom fabric think of vacationland!!! We are so grateful to all of our customers who have put us on the map before all of you noone one knew what a Sis Boom was!!!! So I am thinking of all of you today as I post a picture of beautiful Liz in her marigold zebra!! Are you a seller? Leave a comment please!!! Let us know you carry this heavenly fabric. We are big fans of the gorgeous Marlo Top and as you can see it’s the gift that keeps on giving. This Friday a winner for Carla Crim’s Sewn Hats will be announced so leave a comment..xo
PS Create better photos , wrap a plain canvas in your favorite Sis Boom fabric and watch the world change to color right before your eyes..Fabrics are 45″ wide so bear that in mind when purchasing your canvas, 40″ is perfect.
Wherever you are ..Have the best day ever. Never forget you have a choice. xo

For Fall. Go to the library and take out Girls World and Happy Home! Mix it up a bit and just get those creative juices flowing. So get out that Girls World book and make some more George the puppy for gifts. Happy Home is a continuance of all lovely ideas and inspiration. Just so you are aware Carla Crim will have all the clothing in Happy Home completed by the end of the year to build your PDF pattern library. Right now she is working on the wonderful Vanessa and the terrific Betty Ann for kids and wait till you see the cutie pie pockets she designed for this dress. It’s shaping up to be the best summer ever. I hope you are having fun with Superfly !! We are in heaven over here as one by one they emerge from the seamstress. So get your Girls World and Happy Home take them to the beach and think of all the wonderful things you’ll create in the fall. For now just enjoy.
