Redwork and Stitching: Kinderfolk

I’ll admit—I’ve been waiting for the Kinderfolk collection to come out as long as I’ve known about it. So, when it came time to volunteer to sew projects, I knew I had to take on at least one. It was definitely a no-brainer when Jenni’s amazing set of embroidery patterns she designed to go with Kinderfolk made ...

Animal ABCs Alligator

I love Penguin & Fish’s embroidery, so when her newest fabric collection (Animal ABCs) came out, I fell for that hook, line & sinker. Animal ABCs is such an adorable fabric line; so soft and sweet. Immediately I wanted to make an alligator out of it… I know soft and sweet and alligator don’t usually go together, but ...

These prints are from our Blast Off! Flannel collection (but Blast Off! also comes in flat cotton as well). The blue accent combined with the orange rim and fun ...

Eek! Table Runner

This was another fun project from Kristin Gassaway and really didn’t take too long to complete. I finished most of it in one day. Because the background fabric is directional, you have to pay attention, but the actual construction is really quite simple to do.  I dug out my 20 ½” square ruler for cutting the main background piece, ...

Blast Off! Play Date Bag

One of my favorite things about being “auntie” to my best friend’s little one is making things for my adorable niece. So I was excited to make the Play Date Bag pattern, which would make a backpack for her and a purse for me. Best of all, these bags would both be made with fabric from the new Blast Off! collection, a series of space themed prints, some of which glow in the dark! Her mom and I ...
