Is there anything happier than a blog tour for a fabric with Good Vibes in its name? I don’t think so and that’s why I was so excited to be asked to work with this fabric by Shayla Wolf of Sassafrass Lane for Windham Fabrics.
Seriously, so much awesomeness! You can’t help but feel happy when you check out the lookbook for this fabric. And I think it’s so cool knowing that the entire thing was photographed with an iPhone!
There are 32 prints in this collection, all full of colorful and positive words and affirmations.
My first project used one of the grey on white word prints as a background. Using thin strips that I ripped from the fabric (because how good do those frayed edges look?!), I fashioned two flowers and a collection of leaves. I positioned them so that the word “Beautiful” could be embellished with lots of beads. This one just makes me so happy!
Here’s a close-up of the embroidered and beaded word:
For my second project, I created a brand new pattern, the Ruffled Color Wheel which, drumroll please, is available TODAY!
When I saw the variety of colors included in the Good Vibes Only fabric, I knew I needed to create a project that used lots of them! What better way to use color than a color wheel!
Also, are you a button lover like I am? This is a fun project to include some of your favorite colorful buttons! So much better than keeping them stored in a jar on a shelf. Ahem, that’s the voice of experience speaking!
So be sure to check out my latest pattern, the Ruffled Color Wheel.
And here are both of my projects, side by side, with my little assistants!
And finally, another side project I’ve been working on…my YouTube channel! I have had so many requests for stitching how-tos and so I’ve slowly been adding them to my channel. If you were in any of my QuiltCon classes, you may recognize some of these.
When you check it out, be sure to subscribe because I have lots more tutorials planned for the future and I’ve been updating the videos that are currently available.
For even more patterns and stitch tutorials, the super-professional kind, not the YouTube kind (!), be sure to check out my Bluprint Mixed Media class.
And watch a trailer of it here:
So that’s a wrap! There are so many amazing designers on the Good Vibes Only Blog Tour line-up, so for lots more Good Vibes, be sure to check them out!
