Find Your Path Blog Tour

I'm so  happy to be a part of the Blog Tour for Maureen Fiorellini's newest fabric collection for Studio e Fabrics - Find Your Path. This collection has prints perfect for litttle kids and prints that are sophisticated enough for adults. I asked Maureen for some of the more sophisticated prints for myself. 


I received the navy floral, woodgrain, ferns, mushrooms, and trees.  I might be forgetting a few of the prints. I added in a few scraps of solids and made a bunch of half square triangles. I then sewed them together into a piece that was big enough for me to use for some puffy sleeves.


I used the Uvita Top from Itch to Stitch. The pattern is free, but I used the flare sleeve from the Uvita add-on pack (the add-on [ack is $5, but is worth it).  I had seen similar tops online that were a knit top with dropped shoulders and quilted sleeves that gathered at the wrist. The Uvita is a dropped shoulder knit top and knew it was the perfect base for me make my vision. 


The add-on pack includes a flared sleeve and I added 4" of width to the sleeve and then gathered it at the sleeve cap before sewing it to the body. I added an inch to the sleeve. I serged the end of the sleeve and hemmed it under 1" leaving a gap for me to thread 3/4" elastic through. I left me elastic loose as I don't like my sleeves to be tight on my arms. I love how my top came out and I've gotten so many compliments on it since I've worn it. 


I also made the Sew Liberated Nest Sweatshirt. I made my first Nest Sweatshirt last winter and worn it non-stop. I knew I needed  to make another. I might actually need to make a few more so that I always have a clean one in my closet. This sweatshirt is so comfortable and I love that it is made to feature a quilt block!


I made a Honeymoon block with the Find your Path prints and paired them with a denim print french terry in a soft taupe color that has a pinkish  undertone. It went so well with the prints. 


I made matching joggers but will likely not actually wear these  two pieces together in real life. That might be a bit too matchy matchy.
