Once again Merav and Baby Hobbes of Baby Hobbes Design are back showing off this lovely Gabriella Fae in our newest fabric line Hotel Frederiksted due out in stores later any day now. We hope this post inspires you to include Sis Boom in your holiday sewing! Don’t forget to share with us on Facebook and Instagram. We always love seeing what you are creating.
I am more of a last minute kind of gal! Somehow I stay organized (love my “to-do” list) but I am known to procrastinate A LOT! Hmmmm…starting my kids Halloween costumes 48 hours before they needed to be worn, for example! But when I received my Hotel Fredriksted samples, I couldn’t resist jumping into “Holiday” Mode since this collection features gorgeous reds, greens, blue and white colorways that fit perfect with the Winter Holiday Spirit.
It’s tradition here for Hobbes grandparents to take her to see the Nutcracker Ballet, so I wanted to create a festive look that will mirror Hanukkah and Christmas enthusiasm, yet include the comfort and wear-abilty that is my signature style.
I instantly grabbed Gabriella Fae, Hobbes favorite Sis Boom pattern and went to work. I wove Krysta in white and Christie in Blue (cutting stripes) together to create the skirt.
For the top, I chose Sophia in pink, a bit of white half inch crochet trim for the centerpiece and a lacy exposed zipper for the back.
I wanted a full skirt for Hobbes size three width-I cut each stripe from salvage to salvage and then curved the bodice to create a light bounce in the front.
See here for my previous tutorial on curving bodice.
Let me know what you think of Hobbes’s Hotel Fred Holiday dress and of you had a chance to try out curving your dress bodices too.
Till next time, Happy Sewing!
Merav @ Baby Hobbes Design

This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop. The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support “those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams.”
The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists. The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It was FABULOUS.
Our fearless leader, Jennifer Paganelli, was a guest speaker and led the group in creating vision books. The books were created by gluing inspiring cut outs (words, quotes, images) from magazines onto blank notebook pages.
There was yoga and lessons in make-up and skincare. We made our own dream catchers, ate delicious food (from the ladies at Whisk + Brush) and had a tutorial in all things confetti! Take a look below of more images from the incredibly talented Victoria Gloria:

Here they come our new pillows and we will let you know the retailers that will be carrying them. You saw the ones in Happy Home and for those of you who don’t sew we decided to make them available and boy are we glad we did. The outpouring of love on facebook is a good indication that we scored. My Girlfriend Jennifer at Earth Angels Studios will be a good place to start May 1st! We are so excited by their debut..we are talking HAPPY!!!! You can also create these in our book Happy Home with any word/s you like. Please note do to overstock issues their are plenty of books under new on Amazon with much better pricing..just FYI That’s one of the best sewing books ever. ( I’ve been known to exaggerate.)

In my Chalkboard room I’ve put up some new curtains. Using our Happy Home as inspiration I now have new draperies and I couldn’t be any happier. Everything looks great with Super Fly it gives bounce and pizzazz wherever it turns up!! Do you have any designs on doing drapery for your home??? Make them yourself and save thousands of dollars. That’s why folks fall in love with Happy Home.
