Today we kick off a week of sewing with your kids. School is out and the kiddos are underfoot, which may be cramping your sewing style - but rather than give up your favorite hobby or business, invite your kids to join in and you may be surprised how much fun you all have.
Today we have Larissa's daughter Jody sharing her sewing experiences with us - straight from her mouth!!!Read More

Hola Chicas (and manly men who potentially read this blog), I'm back to share more of my process in creating Mack's Fall wardrobe, and of course some of the final results.
Today, we are going to take a look at some of the staples that are the base of letting a wardrobe take shape. For me, those basics are Leggings and Tops.Read More
I have had the wonderful gift and pleasure of being able to work with Windham Fabric recently. This Fabric Company's tagline goes like this: To create fabrics which inspire passion and creativity for quilters and sewers with various tastes and differing skill levels throughout the world. They expounded by telling me: Basically, meaning…we do modern, but we also still do traditional and reproduction. We are dedicated to the artist in each designer, allowing them to keep their style when they create a Windham Fabric!
Oh how I love this dedication to the art of fabric design and their desire to reach all sewers of all skill levels around the world - They matched up perfectly with our desire here at Pattern Revolution to see EVERY sewer grow in confidence and education and for a new generation to discover the seamstress hiding within. Pairing a perfect fabric with an amazing pattern can make a first attempt at sewing go from 'ummmm, welllll.....' to 'OH WOW!'
During one of our conversations where we were discussing future project collaborations, I happened to mention how much a loved the new line of fabrics called Wallflowers by Allison Harris. Next thing I know, a mystery package shows up at my door with a sampling of the different prints - I was instantly in love, and knew that I wanted to make an Everyday Top by Tie Dye Diva IMMEDIATELY!
I was first struck my the softness of this quilting cotton - it has a great hand, and the colors are so vibrant. I love the color combinations in the Wallflowers line, from soft blues and pinks to the bold Reds and Navys with accents of green and grey - there is something to fit everyone in this line. My fabric combination is perfect for fall, but by paring up different fabrics in the line you can create looks for winter, spring, and summer just as easily.
Windham is offering our readers a super special Surprise!!!! The chance to win your very own charm pack of the Wallflowers collection! So enter now to win...
