I’m kicking off the tour today with a couple of creations of my own. I had so much fun sewing with this collection of mine and can’t wait to make some more things. For today, though, I’ll share a couple throw pillows that I made:

And a cute little zippered pouch as well:

I LOVE how these fabrics combine! So many different pairings and combinations to play with, yessss.

I’m a beginning sewist, so these kinds of small projects that only really require sewing simple straight lines are right up my alley. I’m scared (and let’s be honest, don’t have the time) to tackle things like clothing and quilts at this point, but never say never, right? I never thought I’d be able to sew a zipper, and I figured that out, so who knows what’s next!

Anyway, I hope you’ll follow along on the tour and get inspired by all the talented makers who are participating in the tour. :)

I’m excited to share with you today the brand new lookbook for my second fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics, Sirena.

>> CLICK HERE to head straight to the lookbook.<<

It’s full of fantastic projects, patterns for download, inspiration, and more. Here are a few of my favorite images from the lookbook:

Want to purchase? Here’s how:

Sirena is currently stocked in shops around the world. You can find a list of online retailers on the AGF website, and your local independent quilt/fabric shop just might carry it as well. (If they don’t, ask them to order it!). Did you know there’s also an Art Gallery Fabrics APP where you can check out all the collections, shop, search for a local store, and more? It’s true. It’s available for download for iPhone and Android. Download it today and give it a whirl!

Shop the full collection online now at the Fat Quarter Shop and Hawthorne Threads.

I hope you love this collection and the lookbook as much as I do.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I’m currently sewing myself as well as what others are creating with my Sirena fabrics.
And if you’re using the collection yourself, make sure to share your creations using the hashtag #AGFSirena on Instagram!

I’m so excited to announce my first-ever sewing challenge today – the Sirena Summer Tote Sewing Challenge!

My Sirena fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics is bright, summery, tropical, and perfect for making all sorts of bags for summer adventures. (I made the tote in the image above!)

Whether you’re a beginning sewist or you’ve been sewing for decades, I hope you’ll have so much fun joining in this challenge.

The official challenge will take place on Pinterest, but I encourage you to also share your images on Instagram, Facebook, your blogs, and anywhere else online that you’d like to show off your creations, of course. :)

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  1. Choose your ideal summer tote that you’d like to make. You can use a pattern or create something on the fly, whatever suits your sewing style. The sky is the limit on what type of bag to make – as long as it can carry things around, it will count! Travel bags, duffles, totes, backpacks, grocery bags, beach bags, etc. All are fair game.
  2. Purchase fabric from my Sirena fabric collection. Your local quilt shop may carry it (if they don’t, ask them to order it!), and you can purchase it online at places like Hawthorne Threads, Fat Quarter Shop, and Fabric Worm.
  3. Sew your tote anytime between now and July 31, 2018.
  4. Once your tote is finished, take a photo of it and upload it to Pinterest. Make sure to use the following hashtags so I can find your image and add it to the Sirena Summer Tote Sewing Challenge pin board: #mysummertote, #agfsirena, and #sirenafabrics
  5. Tell your friends and community to head over and like your image!
  6. Viewers and participants will be encouraged to like their favorite totes from August 1-5, 2018, once the challenge has officially ended, and then on Monday August 6, 2018 I’ll announce the winner of the challenge. The winner will be the creator of the tote bag that receives the most likes on Pinterest.
  7. The winner will receive a half-yard bundle of their choice of 16 fabrics from my Sirena and Tallinn fabric collections, along with a few other amazing sewing-inspired surprise goodies.

And that’s it!

If you have any questions, please send me an email.

Happy sewing!
I can’t wait to see all the amazing totes you’re going to make!
