Jennifer Fraunfelder never gave up and now she sews through the night filling orders for her etsy shop SouthernBabies She’s getting the kids to school, feeding the cat, and no wonder with all our daily tasks we want to throw the towel in when business doesn’t run smoothly! This sweet gal like all of us at one time or another, including myself have persevered! Listen if you are making it through these tough economic challenges chances are you will be poised for success when this is all behind us!! Jennifer thanks for not giving up on your dream because we all need your success story to motivate us!!! Love you girl! 6mos-4T.
Ok so I took a bit of advertising liberty but made you look!!!! I think if Sis Boom calculated all the fans around the world Australia would be the most highly populated. They love us!!! Well I found a new friend that I want to introduce to you that is part of that Sis Boom subculture and love how she works it..Love the Joel Dewberry woodgrain and how it picks up that green in West Indies. Mandalin is from you guessed it Australia!! I just wanted to show you her patchy work and how beautiful West Indies looks!!! These fabrics are now on sale in most places so stock up!!! Mandalin thanks for sharing your enthusiasm of West Indies with your readers and the winner gets to stay with you in Australia!! Forgot to mention that!! JK
Sew Mama Sew Thanks for carrying Girls World at such a great price. So those of you who have been holding out to purchase this fab (I’ve been told ) book please put together a nice package for yourself. In the cart put the book, 5 yards of Chandler in Brandy and create the Josie, or the Mary Fancy Dress inside the book (make them long to the floor if you like, that’s why the extra yardage!) and make one happy little girl! Look at Miss Abby!!! Thanks Sew Mama Sew you mean so much to us and we love your new book store!! Photo by Tim Geaney!!
Everything about her screams chic! Simone of Garden House Designs and Brooch the Subject just has a certain vibe that is totally unique. She loves mixing up her favorite designers with brocades, silks, ribbon, vintage jewels and putting the glam on a lifestyle fabric. She takes license to take these fabrics to another level which is that wonderful stroke of genius she possesses and gives others permission to do the same. She doesn’t box cotton fabrics into a predestined aesthetic she pushes the limits and shows us their humble richness. We are talking $10.00 per yard folks!!! or less thank you Etsy!! It truly is the best kept secret and yes it still is a secret to the masses cause when I tell folks how much they are per yard I get “How much are they originally???” most of the world has never heard of this!!!! I also love the addition of white to this patchworked tablecloth just says..luxurious!!! I have been traveling the world ( I’ve been know to exaggerate ) with Earth Angels and Country Living and can tell you folks out there eat up these fabrics when you put them out front. So Simone thanks for the beauty and inspiration. All my love, Jennifer

Whose lucky baby will be wrapped in this goodness? The combination of blues tug at our heartstrings, and the the splashes of cocoa add a lusciousness that is the most yummy eye candy we could imagine! Eh-hem.. did you all see the back? This baby is going to be wrapped in straight up luxurious Sis Boom. Sew Fun by Monique, you are just the cat’s meow!
32×32 started out with Velentina in cocoa, Matilda in blue, Chandler in cocoa and Marie in blue from West Indies. Other coordinates from Honey Child, Queen Street and Flower Power.
