I'm as happy as a clam! Although I really have no idea how a clam might feel, I am so thrilled with the projects being made for the Coastline Blog Tour. Aren't they awesome?!! In fact, there were so many projects this week I had a real tough time getting them onto one recap image!
Yeah, I know, right! There were 6 amazing makers this week, all sewing with fabrics from my new Coastline fabrics collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. Projects were made from the variety of different substrates available from Art Gallery Fabrics (AGF) cotton, knit, voile, and canvas. Since this is only a recap and cannot do full justice to each blogger, be sure to visit each blogger to read more details about the projects and patterns used to create this beautiful pieces.
I want the thank the following bloggers for their professionalism, extremely amazing sewing skills, and creative talent in making my prints look beyond beautiful.
Monday was a special "two-fer" day on the tour when good friends Sue Stone owner of Needle in a Fabric Stash and talented clothing designer Alexis Wright of My Sweet Sunshine Studio paired up to photograph their work on the San Diego beach. Sue designed and made the drool-worthy Beachcomber quilt (kits available on Sue's website) and the Noodlehead's Bucket Bag from Sand Bar canvas and Trade Winds Harbor cotton. My friend Alexis and her two beautiful children brought us the Violet Field Threads Cosette Dress and ModKid Keagan boys shirt made with Beachcomber Nocturnal, Sand Bar Driftwood, Netting String, Netting Twine, and Tradewinds Port prints.
Jennifer DeShazer of Jennuine Design has designed the fun and flirty Naples Dress for children. She used the Tropical Breeze voile to stitch a dreamy pattern that every girl (me included!) will be wanting to wear this spring. Stop by Jennifer's blog to learn more about this pattern and all the other beautiful projects Jennifer has to offer on her website.
You can't help but smile and share the joy and excitement with Kristen Wright of Two Blondes and a Sewing Machine as she shares her makes with us. Kristen made her baby bump self a AGF knit top with my High-Flown and Trade Winds Port knit prints with the Linden Sweatshirt pattern by Grainline Studio, baby leggings using Sand Bar knit with the Just Hatched Baby Leggings by Made by Rae, and an adorable baby outfit with Sailcloth Quietude and Netting Twine prints with the Purl Soho pattern.
If you flipped through the pages of the Coastline fabrics AGF Lookbook you may have seen the adorable outfits by Katie Skoog of The Simple Life Company and her two too cute daughters. See even more of these to die for Bella maxi dress in Tropical Breeze voile and the AGF canvas Bermuda shorts and Conchology Dune cotton top summer set on Katie's blog.
If you weren't already ready for it to be summer, you will certainly be counting down the days till you can sit poolside once you see Friday's Coastline fabrics tour project! Cristy Stuhldreher of I Love You Sew used Sew Caroline's Kimono pattern to make this oh-so-flattering swimsuit coverup from my Tropical Breeze voile. Cristy modified the pattern in clever ways and added the perfect fringe to the kimono for a positively perfect touch.
