OH gosh, such adorable projects.
I'd love to have some to make my 7 month old Granddaughter something from that. I'm pretty sure it would be a little outfit of some sort or a little blanket and bib even possibly. I know I just adore seeing little baby girls wearing those cute little ruffle butt diaper covers under their adorable dresses so that might be what I would choose. I'm from Illinois, USA.

oH! tks fr the chance! I'd love to make some girlie totes for my eldest and her friends! I bet they will treasure it! I'm from Argentina.
So who's ready to start thinking of ways to use my new Roughing It fabric? My new collection with Robert Kaufman will be available in stores in Dec of this year. I've already started on a few projects of my own using these fun trees and campers so I'll share them as soon as they're ready for viewing. And if you look closely, you'll even spy a few wee woodpeckers hanging out among the trees and picnic tables.
This airstream camper print will be available in slicker fabric!
(Only in this color and print) Its a 54" wide coated cotton. So yummy!
The pieces for a sassy rain coat (for me!) have just been cut out of the red camper slicker fabric and are staring at me on my sewing table. (I'm using the Amy Butler adult rain coat pattern. Now...if I can just muster up the courage to get started on the sewing. Frankly, the project is far beyond my capabilities, but I'm going to give it the old college try!! I'm headed out to pick up a teflon foot sometime today, as I hear that can be a real help when working with the slicker fabric. (And of course I might just pick up an extra bottle of wine which I don't think will hurt!) I also got a hint to widen the arms on this specific pattern so they're not so narrow and picked up a box of the Clover clips to keep everything together since pinning isn't ideal with coated fabrics. Any other hints for sewing with slicker fabric or for this specific Amy Butler pattern would be hugely appreciated!
Fun tent selvage!!
And one last picture! Last week I made up these PJ boxer shorts for myself from my new Don't be Crabby collection (also available in stores starting this December!). I love, love the fabric for boxers. (A friend called them my Crabby Pants which had me rolling with laughter.)
But there's something about this specific sewing pattern that I'm just not loving (they're a bit droopy in the back!), so I'm on the hunt for a new PJ Boxer pattern. I think I'm going to try to use an existing pair of boxer PJ bottoms that I really like and create a pattern from that. Maybe I'll try that as soon as I finish tackling this rain coat project!!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
