Sugar Ink Fabrics - Bioluminence

Image
I love Sugar Ink Fabric - they always have a great selection of prints at preorder and you can order on so many different base fabrics. My favorites are the organic cotton lycra and the performance knit(it's perfect for leggings).

This time, I sewed up a strike off of the Bioluminence print. I love abstract prints and wild prints - so this was right up my alley. Since it had such feminine colors and design, I decided to make the Patterns for PiratesSweetheart Top/Dress. But I'm no sweetheart, and made some modifications to the pattern to eliminate the sweetheart bodice. I of course made the top version since I rarely wear dresses, but I may have to try the dress version one day.



This beautiful print and others are available for pre-sale through April 1st.

Star Dust Textiles - Harry Potter Prints Quilt

Image
Star Dust Textiles is part of a group named Star Dust & Moon Beam Textile Company. Star Dust Textiles is run by Christina Coyle and Moon Beam Textiles is run by Kris Opsal. Kris is a wonderful graphic designer and produces designs for other custom knit groups. She designed a series of Harry Potter prints for Fabric Igloo. The owner of Fabric Igloo ended up never ordering the prints and scammed a lot of people by taking their money and never producing the fabric. Many people still wanted to but the fabric, so the Harry Potter prints are being run by Christina Coyle over at Star Dust Textiles. The preoder is open through March 31st.

Christina sent me strike offs of the cotton woven and minky. I received about a fat half of each cotton woven. The 100% cotton woven is heavier than your typical quilting cotton at 140-150 gsm versus 120 gsm. These are approximately 57" wide, making them wider than most quilting cottons. This weight of woven would be perfect for making handbags, tot…

Golden Rippy - Cinnabar Sky Top Konstant Krafter Natural Dream Catcher

Image
I received a strike off from Konstant Krafters - Natural Dream Catcher. This is a beautiful print of feathers and dream catchers is so pretty. I decided to pair it with a brown gold glitter flecked jersey knit I bought in the Dallas Fabric District for $1/yard. This print is available for pre-order from March 11th - March 21st.

I decide to use a new to me pattern - The Cinnabar Sky Dress & Top by Golden Rippy.

I loved the look of this pattern and thought it would be very flattering on me. I went by my measurements and found that I needed a medium top, but a large for my hips. I also saw, that the waist was going to be low on me, and decided to raise it up.

When I cut my pattern, I cut it at the large cutting line up to the arm pit. I moved the waist up about an inch and put my pattern together. I found it interesting, that wh…

Terras Treasures Lisse Cowl and Konstant Krafters Impressionist Night

Image
I received a strike off from Konstant Krafters - Impressionist Night. This is a beautiful print reminiscent of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night. When trying to decide on a coordinate to go with it, I decided to use some space dyed Supplex from Zenith & Quasar. I think it paired very well with the Impressionist Night. This print is available for pre-order from March 11th - March 21st. Pre-orders can be placed through the website at www.KonstantKraftersFabric.comAlso, join the Facebook page athttps://www.facebook.com/groups/Konstantkrafter/
Here is a look at the beautiful print.


I decided to try a new to me pattern - the Lisse cowl by Terra's Treasures. This is a cute top that can be made with a cowl or a hood. I opted for the cowl. What I love is the tulip petal front. It makes for an interesting detail.

Here are all my pieces cut out.


I really love how the space dyed supplex has the same shades of turquoise and blue as the Impressionist Night. They look so pretty together.
