Four weeks later...

Can you believe it's been 4 weeks since school started? I am still amazed at how fast time just went by. I was so excited about my little girl starting preschool that I made her a pretty cool wardrobe so she could go to school in style pretty much every day this school year.
Now, don't think I left my boy out, I made him a first day of school shirt too, up cycling a shirt my husband no longer needed, it turned out amazing!
For these creations I used Made for Mermaids patterns' Katelyn Jumper , Charlie Button Up Shirt and Riley Peplum Top and they turned out very school code friendly.





 For this look, I used Brownie Goose's Allie Oop top, perfect for this fabric and to wear with leggins, jeans and shorts.


I couldn't consider my mission complete without a custom shirt, so I used my Silhouette Cameo to create this shirt with heat transfer  vinyl, it says "Hello Preschool" and I paired it with a Samantha Skirt (modified) by made for Mermaids patterns. The combination of these Riley Blake fabrics, Bethany Lane buttons and shirt is just amazing, and of course little miss J had to add some glasses to look studious, this girl is too much!


I hope you enjoy this school themed inspiration, next on the sewing table is some fall apparel, so stay tuned!
Love, 
Paola

I'm a Springs Creative Brand Ambassador!

Well, can you tell I'm excited? I am extremely happy to have been selected to collaborate with Springs Creative fabrics as a Brand Ambassador. As a creative person there's nothing more rewarding than being given the opportunity to well, create. I will have the opportunity to work with different fabrics and create different looks or projects, how fun!
My first project was a series of looks made with Mary Fons' newly released line called Small Wonders, which features designs that reflect different parts of the world, being from South America, I chose the lively Brazil Collection.



This collection features a variety of vibrant colors that worked perfectly for my little girl's wardrobe. First, I used Little Lizzard King's Hoya pattern, a perfect button down dress that could easily be layered with a shirt underneath to extend its life during the cooler months. It also features perfectly sized pockets for all the little treasures my daughter likes to collect in our outings and a lovely bow belt. 




Second, I used the Samantha Skirt from Made for Mermaids patterns, modified to include side ties and paired it with a  Charlotte shirt from Made for Mermaids as well that features a coordinating collar.




Everything about this collection screams fun! I hope you are as excited as I am  about this new release, this collection is now available and ready to be turned into amazing creations.

Until next time,

Paola
