I have been wearing my Tova tops so much lately, so I knew I still needed a few more! I bought this purple print from Poetica by Art Gallery Fabrics a few weeks back from The Intrepid Thread's new website! (Check it out, it's fantastic!) I had a feeling that Art Gallery Fabrics would be perfect for clothing, and oh my goodness it's true! Not only did it sew up super nicely, it's more comfortable than regular quilting cotton and here is the best part. I pulled it out of the dryer and it had NO wrinkles. ZERO ironing needed! Woo hoo!

The Sewcial Lounge to sew up a special tank to wear tomorrow for my birthday! I'm a bit sad about being away from my family so I am doing a few special things to help distract me! I love this pattern and the finished tank feels so dreamy! I can't wait to wear it!

fantastic quilt. When a friend needed a little pick-me-up I decided it was finally time to try it! I've had this Marti Michell Kaleido Ruler for a while, and it came together pretty easily. I loved Angela's Kaleidoscope pillows, so I made one too! I can definitely see myself doing a whole quilt in this pattern!
Sewing Summit last year, we received lots of fun swag in plain canvas bags. We were challenged to re-fashion or decorate the bags after the conference was over. Well, I finally did something with mine! I know I'll need a sturdy tote to take back and forth to my garden and I think this will be perfect. I thrifted this blue striped utility fabric last week and had just enough to create a lining for it and add a little embellishment to the front. Best part is, it's now reversible! :)
