FREE FABRIC* First come first serve.
I cleaned out my scrap bin and my stash and I have so many started projects that I don't anticipate I will ever get to, some of these packages are orphan blocks and whatever pieces of fabric I had left. If you are interested in a package but want more photos just DM me and I will send it over.
Photo A is countless yards of fabric from Nigeria that I would love to see go to someone who will put it to good use.
* except for cost of shipping which I anticipate to be $6.50 except for A & D
A Christmas order for 12 lovely people at school! Thanks to their beautiful, lovely and generous friend, they will be rocking the coolest lanyards next year 😎 Express shipping is still available within Australia if you'll like some handmade gifts from me to your loved ones for Christmas. Check out my etsy store for lanyards and many more! Link in bio and happy weekend my beautiful friends 💗
Today is my (and the last) stop on the Boho Embroidery Stitch-Along! I had so much fun stitching up this not-so-little hoop over the last few weeks -- the hardest part was deciding which of the wonderful projects from the book to conquer first and then to know when "enough was enough." I finally decided on the Snapshot project from the Boho Embroidery Pattern Collection and was so tempted to just keep adding stitches once I got started. This Menagerie fabric was an embroiderer's dream, and I loved flipping through the #bohoembroiderypatterncollection and #bohoembroidery (Nichole’s first book) to try out as many new stitches as I could. Thank you so much to Nichole (@wildboho) for inviting me to join in the stitch-along and for creating such a fun new book! I can't wait to start on another project. Flip through for lots of detail shots, and don't forget to look back at the lovely projects by the other makers on the stitch-along (see last pic).

I will be having a shop update with all of these new prints on Tuesday Dec. 4 (a week from today)! This will be a fairly large update there will be quite a few bags in various prints and sizes. See you there!
This is what I call my 'drying' rack 😂 Lanyards fresh and hot out of the oven left to cool, chill and hang out with each other (I'm so weird 😜).
Anyways, I'm so thankful for this order! All the teachers who have ordered are undoubtedly the COOLEST and most RAD! Have a great end of school term soon and thank you for doing what you do, teaching our children. You have my utmost respect 🙏
I sewed up the #portsmithtote by @klumhouse this afternoon in time for reveal day for the October #sewmystyle2018 challenge. I used copper canvas for the bottom and #essexyarndyed linen/cotton blend for the body with #riflepapercofabric#menageriefabric for the lining from @spoolandspindle. Hardware was from @emmalinebags and leather straps from @lonsdaleleather I interfaced the charcoal linen/cotton which made it tricky to sew and I ended up having to unpick and restitch multiple times. Next time I would use a heavier weight body fabric. Thank you to @likesewamazing for the lining tutorial. #canadasews
Flashing back to this gingham quilt I made my daughter this summer, using @riflepaperco #menageriefabric and Kona natural. Used the #buffalocheckquilt pattern from @emptybobbin, and turned it into a weighted blanket. M still sleeps with it every night.
Editing pics for some new fabric in the shop. Canvas anyone? I’ve got some half yard cuts of the Menagerie line from Rifle Paper Co. That metallic gold is gorgeous! Listing them this weekend.
•mais um dia em cheio no atelier ✂️ nunca faço duas peças iguais, há sempre qualquer pormenor diferenciador, mas quando os clientes pedem duas #almofadasfridakahlo iguais eu tenho todo o gosto em aceder. E estas são mesmo muito especiais: já não tenho mais tecido da coleção #menageriefabric da @riflepaperco para a @cottonandsteel e dificilmente encontrarei mais no mercado... as ultimas peças de tecido que tinha foram usadas religiosamente nesta encomenda. A cliente veio à loja, viu o meu portfólio, escolheu comigo os tecidos e acabamentos, e passado um par de horas veio buscar a sua encomenda exclusiva ❤️
•another busy day at the studio ✂️ I never make to pieces exactly alike, but when the costumers ask for two #fridakahlocushion I am very pleased to abide. And these are really special: I used the last yardage of #menageriefabric by @riflepaperco for @cottonandsteel that I had left in my stash and I know it will be quite difficult for me to get some more. The client came in, we discussed the order and choose the fabrics together, and a couple of hours latter she returned to pick up her exclusive custom made order ❤️
A small sewing binge here the last couple of days! I love log cabin blocks in all their variations. This is going to be turned into a fancy cushion 💖 #menageriefabric#logcabinpillow I just adore the @cottonandsteel Celestial lawn fabrics (the black and very pale pink fabrics) with their metallic stargazing prints 💗
I felt a bit discouraged when I got the blocks done because my scrappy quilt felt disjointed but then once that step border went on it truly felt complete.
Expect more pictures on a not so cloudy gross day when I can take this one outside and capture the full goodness of the colors.
I have become friends with so many people of different shapes and sizes and I am shocked at the negative self talk that I hear. It truly has no bearing whatsoever on outward appearance, and everything to do with inner self worth. I decided several years ago with the help of my sexy husband to stop negative self talk, to love my body and all of the marvelous stuff it can do! Regardless of size, my body gives me the opportunity every day to run with my kids, eat tasty yum yums, help the ill, comfort those who need help, and sew my heart out. Why would I ever want to hate this gift? I am grateful for my body and grateful for how awesome it looks in homemade clothes that I can tailor to me!
Thank you for @patternsforpirates and @madeformermaids for making such beautiful patterns in enough shapes and sizes to cover everyone!
Thank you to @riflepaperco for making amazing fabric designs and thank you @cottonandsteel for producing it on such perfect rayon challis!
