The Fabric Geeks has a fun round full of a mix of prints - hence the name Mix #1. They are located in Canada, but have very reasonable shipping rates to the US. And Canadians are invoiced in Canadian dollars while Americans order in US dollars from the website.
I was sent 3 prints to sew up. They were all equally gorgeous. First up is Gothic Embroidery.
I did lace sleeves and did lace shoulder accents as well.
Look at these gorgeous details!
The humming bird is so pretty! This print is available on cotton lycra (shown here) and double brushed poly.
I was sent a fat half of the succulents and decided to make the Shwin Designs Carolina Tee. If you remember a previous post - I've been trying to get the perfect fit on this top - and think I finally have it! Or at least pretty darn close.
I ended up removing 4" from the length! I'm 5' tall and typically only remove 2" - if any. And I think I'm going to remove another 1.5" when I make another one.
The last print I was sent to sew up was the Dreamland Foxes. These sleeping foxes are gorgeous in an embroidery design. This print is available on cotton lycra (shown here), double brushed poly, and cotton woven.
I made the Hornpipe Vest by Hot Patterns. This is free on the Fabric.com website.
The pattern is made for wovens, so I made the smallest size to get a good fit in the stretchy cotton lycra. I also removed 1" from the length of the pattern to get it to fit the amount of fabric I had. I had a fat half of the foxes.
I love how my vest turned out! I used some wood buttons on my vest that have 9 holes! I sewed the buttons on by hand using olive embroidery floss. I think they add a nice decorative touch.
Look at the beautiful details in these foxes! They are so gorgeous!
This preorder closes on February 9th. There are so many great prints this round - so be sure to check out the entire line up.
