Hey all!!!! If you’re anything like me, as soon as those temperatures start creeping up after a long winter and the sun starts shining longer into the evening hours, your creative soul begins eagerly planning for summer sewing! Right?? Good news- Fiesta Fun Fabrics are out in your favorite quilt shops and online fabric stores such as Hawthorne Threads and are screaming all things summer! I am so honored and excited to be a part of a stellar blog tour showcasing some of our favorite prints from the Fiesta Fun Fabrics collection by Dana Willard of Made Everyday for Art Gallery Fabrics. Alexis of My Sweet Sunshine and I got together for a festive afternoon at a local Botanical Garden. Let’s take a look at our fun shoot:
What a trio of cuteness, right??? For my oldest daughter’s outfit I sewed up an Allie top with the Piñata Confetti print, trimmed with bright blue mini poms. I played with the incredible canvas from the collection in the *updated* Fawn shorts pattern.
Thanks Target (and Alexis) for these perfectly perfect sunnies and headband- it’s like they knew we needed some props for this blog tour!
Alexis sewed up the most darling dress in the Citrus Sunrise print- I seriously want to make one for myself!!!
And for my youngest, a June dress sewn also with the canvas print. I haven’t made a dress with canvas before but the Art Gallery canvas has a great drape and structure, but still gathered up just fine for the full skirt. How fun!!!
And because I can’t ever keep my posts short and sweet…here are some more photos of our day!
Big thanks to our friends from Art Gallery Fabrics, and big squishy hugs to Dana for including us in the tour! Happy Sewing!
