Sweet Silk Cherries

Confession: I don’t like cherries. Not to eat, anyway. What I do like, though, is stuff with cherries printed on it (actually, let’s be honest – I like anything with fruit printed on it! Too adorable!). Any fruit-printed fabric that I come across is immediately snapped up and sewn into something painfully adorable. And while most of these fabrics tend to be printed on quilting weight cotton (or silk chiffon, for whatever strange reason. No, really, who is buying all that crazy printed silk chiffon? REVEAL YOURSELF, I want to see what you’re making!), occasionally I stumble across a diamond […]

Theory Striped Maxi

Once again, the spirits of Marcy the Medium have influenced my fabric selection! “You need more yellow in your life,” she stated. I think I ordered the best yellow a n y t h i n g  ever available, for Mood Fabrics’ Theory Light Canary Striped Viscose Ponte Blend  has more than surpassed my expectations!  I wasn’t ready to put away the pattern from my last project (New Look 6210) quite yet – especially since the fit had been tweeked to perfection.

Strips And Stripes

When I ordered this striped cotton voile at Mood Fabrics online, I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  But white-n-black combos were on sale, and if something on sale piques my interest, that’s a chance to get enough yardage to fearlessly cut and piece and drape till I like what I see. (Apparently I’m not the only squirrel, she’s gone online, but there are more striped voiles here, and peep that blue floral one!) Signs that I am binge watching Game Of Thrones: there are no zips, no snaps, there are only drawstrings.  They made […]
