It’s my way of saying thank you to every one who has loved and followed Sis Boom over the years! You inspire me every day with your amazing creations. I’m so glad you are a part of the Sis Boom world. Good luck!

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!

 

Summer Style Using Jenny Eliza

Jodie, of Twinkle Star down in Australia, tagged me on Instagram with this darling romper using my Jenny Eliza fabric available at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I just love it. She used Bungalow Multi Floral for the romper and Green Dots for the ruffled short sleeves. Jodie ships all over so check out her darling Made It shop if you have a wee one to shop for in your life.

Best of all Jenny Eliza is on sale for $6. 99 a yard at Jo-Ann Fabrics right now so order a couple of yards of your favorite today! Or call your local Jo-Ann today to find out if they’ve got it on the shelves. Keep sharing what your making with me on Facebook or Instagram! It always inspires me and I hope it inspires my other readers too. XOXO

Tickled over Tassels

I’ve been busy the last week or so in my studio making these darling tassels with my dogs, Georgie Boy and Gracie Girl by my side. I love getting up every day and crafting and being able to share it with you! I’m so glad you stopped by. Come join the fun on Instagram and on Facebook. I’m always up to some sort of crafting hijinks, and I guarantee I’ll inspire you to make your world more fun and colorful. You can also share what you’ve been working on with me. Your creativity always amazes me!!!!
