We love her bright and cheery fabric choice and off course the addition of our Rachel Reindeer. It's a free pattern so download it today! The Holidays with Sis Boom By Becca Plymale of Sunflower Seams sunflower-seams-holiday-tour I am very excited Sis Boom decided to put on a Holiday blog tour. I had such a wonderful time during the Back to School tour that I jumped at the chance to be a part of another. holiday-tour-sis-boom-jpg The holidays are a very special time for me. It’s a time for family gatherings, and traditions but they also have a special place in my heart when it comes to sewing. The first dress I ever made my daughter as a baby was a Christmas dress and that is when my passion of sewing garments became real. I love giving her something special each year, unique to her and her growing personality. dsc_0221 For this year’s Christmas dress, I chose to use the Marissa Dress PDF pattern. It is so elegant but still captures an innocence that she possesses. I don’t need her growing up any faster then she already is. To continue reading Sunflower Seams post head over to her blog....

Sis Boom for the Holidays

by Kelly S
 
I LOVE the holidays! Seriously love them. I love getting together with my family and cooking crazy amounts of food. I love the traditions we have developed over the years. One of them being pajama pants. We are totally casual and I've actually declared Thanksgiving and Christmas pajama pants day. Yeah, you read that right, my family comes over and we hang out and eat dinner in our pajama pants. So comfy! However, my kids still need some nice clothes this time of year, especially Thomas for his Suzuki concert. So, I made him the most adorable Sis Boom Ethan with this gorgeous fabric from Phat Quarters and paired it with Sis Boom's Bosco Bow Tie. Talk about adorable!!!

 I love making button down shirts for my guys. There is just something about a button down that is so clean and simple, but beautiful. It's a wonderful pattern for showing off some topstitching.

Hotel Frederiksted with Snickerdoodle Stew

Hotel Frederiksted is out and we are grateful for the positive response. This bright, cheery line with lush florals, colorful toiles and bright geometric designs combines everything you love about Jennifer Paganelli's designs. The vibrant greens and reds are the perfect compliment to your Christmas sewing this time of year. We want to share part of Jessica of Snickerdoodle Stew's post on Hotel Frederiksted and the Izzy and Ivy skirt she made using our fabric. One Fabric Nation- Hotel Frederiksted by Jessica It’s that time again! I’m here to tell you all about Hotel Frederiksted, the newest line from Jennifer Paganelli that ships this month from Free Spirit Fabrics! I’m not gonna lie . . . I never turn down an opportunity to sew with my favorite JPags, but this line takes the cake! I had such a hard time deciding what to do with it because I seriously loved it ALL! I finally decided on a few projects, so today I’m revealing a skirt that I made that I hope showcases these prints to their fullest. snickerdoodle-stew I’m a big fan of trims, and sometimes more is more, especially when Jennifer Paganelli prints are involved! I added a few and when I liked what I saw, I added one more for good measure. These are ribbons from Bonnie Christine and Renaissance Ribbons, paired with Cluny lace and trim from Little Red Cottage. snickerdoodle-stew2 I made a skirt similar to this for a birthday party my 7 year old attended, but it didn’t have the half doily on top of the apron like she wanted. I promised her I’d try it again on something for her, and I love the way it turned out. I wanted over the top, and I got it! The apron was an addition to the Izzy & Ivy Designs Addie Jo Skirt pattern. It’s a simple, yet versatile, skirt and it’s becoming my go-to for a quick project. snickerdoodle-stew3 Jump over to Jessica's blog over at Snickerdoodle Stew to finish reading the blog post. Thanks for all you do Jessica.
