Sew for Spring

Spring is the perfect time to get out your sewing machine and plan a few wonderful projects.  A few new pillows on the sofa, fresh drapes, moving your toddler out of the crib and into a big kid bed with a new quilt, spring dresses, and special event clothing are just a few of the many ideas that come to mind.  AllegroFabrics has over 700 bolts of fabrics, most of them in Spring colors and prints.  I think my favorite new prints are the kaleidoscope Euro ones.  They are bright and fun, not too big and not too small.  Get ready for Mother's Day!  I have a few wonderful apron patterns and some lovely handbag ones as well that are perfect for gift making and giving.  They are quick to make and by adding a few trims here and there, they will become unique creations.  New fabrics arrive everyday!

This sample set was created by LilyandEbony using 2 prints from The Rose Fairies collection by Michael Miller.   Patterns for the Juliet overtop and the ruffle bottom pants are from the AllegroFabrics shop, both by Pink Fig.  Contrasting fabrics from different collections pop the colors in the roses and leaves.  Light pink linen pants fabric adds interest.  Trims are everything from velvet ribbon to crochet edge ribbon.  Starting from basic patterns, this turned out to be a unique set!
