Run, don’t walk to get a copy of this month’s Weekend Quilting magazine. Jo Avery made these sassy dolls with fabric from the Circa line and they are just darling. What can I say, I love this girl and her use of our fabrics to make these Gossip gals hum!! The pattern is in the magazine and you could make a couple by this afternoon…She also has Kaleidoscope pillows that you will totally want to create, but I won’t share here so you can be surprised. This issue is jam packed with some great great peeps and their wonderful projects…check it out!
You all are a talented bunch. I’m always amazed and inspired in your vision, and how you design and sew to bring my fabrics to life. I have to share these 2 amazing designers and outfits they created for little ones. First, Brook over at Little One Organic made these darling Daisy Doo rompers with shorts and suspenders. She used Daisy in green and ivory from the new Caravelle Arcade line. I’m just smitten.
Next up is Lisa from Evelyn Anna Handmade. She used Ruby in Blue also from Caravelle Arcade for this darling tunic top. Loving the scalloped detail. I’m seeing scallops everywhere this season! They are definitely all the rage.
We have been working hard for the past few months with Sew News to debut our newest patterns and special videos and it’s happening TODAY!

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.
I’m thrilled to announce our Sew News collaboration is just around the corner launching on Monday, June 22! Carla Crim of the Scientific Seamstress and Sis Boom Pattern Co. designed and developed 4 new patterns for you. They include Bonnie’s Flouncy Skirt, the Peggy Party Runner, the Wendy Weekender Bag and the Shellie Clutch. Aren’t they 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.
