My Doll, My Style - A New Book

When asked if I would be interested in sewing some clothes from the NEW BOOK - My Doll My Style by talented designer Anna Allen - I said YES! 

Of course, I made a hairstylist out of my doll with a super cute black lace outfit. 

ThermOWeb is joining the celebration of the new book release 
the Thermoweb design team will be showing some of the fashions you can sew from the book over the next few days.  

The book has everything you need to know to sew trendy clothes for your 18″ doll.  You will love the designs, the personal options, and the instructions.

I used my options to make a little hairstylist outfit and can't wait to make a few
more personal clothes for the doll.
Someday a little girl will enjoy this gma's effort.

It's that time of year!
 Bring our the red white and blue.

The 4th of July is right around the corner
today I have a free tutorial over at Thermoweb for this fun

The best way to dress up 4th of July projects
is with a little
you can make this project in an afternoon

Believe it or not, my fabrics are from Windham Fabrics' O Christmas Tree line.
I just added a little white fabric.
Who knew Christmas fabrics could work for the 4th of July?!

If you haven't tried Deco Foil™ 
you are missing a lot of fun.

The magic of removing the sheet of foil and seeing your design there is breathtaking.
That's my favorite part.
Well, the fact that is sparkles and shines is fun too.

GIve it a try!

Where Flowers Bloom - The Final Day and My Day

My vision became a reality thanks to everyone who played along in the
Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop.

It was so fun to see flowers take center stage for one week
to all that particiapated or commented -
Thank you so much!

It's been such a fun week.

It's my day to share my blooms
I made this pillow to remind me of this blog hop.

Just a little fusible applique with
on a background of white to go with my farmhouse decor .

I've hosted a few hops, but this is definitely one of my favorites.
The inspiration and sweet flowers have been awesome.

I made another pillow cover to go with my bloom pillow.

This one was made just like these pillow covers that were created for a tutorial for Thermoweb
and a 
spring quilt market display for Anna Griffin Fabric.

They are super soft because you use 
in the ruffle to create dimension and softness.
The ruffles in these large blooms are super simple with the technique in the pattern.

The full free tutorial is on the ThermOWeb blog click - Here
You can download the free PDF pattern from my Craftsy pattern store HERE.

I decided to make a pieced pillow cover too.

The design is my own and I plan on using it in a quilt too.
Stay tuned for that...

And here are my new blooming pillow cushions.

Here is the schedule for today:

Today - Friday, June 15th

There's a Pinterest Board where you can see all the
