My, my…. it’s been a while! New Stock!

Once again, I’m trying to be a little more consistent with the blog. I just have so much to share so these blogs are going to be short and sweet for now! I’m getting on a regular rotation with building the stock that I am listing online so I have a few newer things to show you.

Fabric-wise, I have a bunch of newer cottons. I recently got the Perennial Collection by Cassidy Demkov for Cloud9 Fabrics in and it is GORGEOUS! The vintage florals are just so perfect. The whole collection works so well together and I’ve added a few ideas to my own make list using these fabrics.

I also managed to get hold of some of the Robert Kaufman 1/4″ Carolina Gingham in a few Spring colors. Now the lavender and green sold out pretty quickly but I do still have a little bit of periwinkle blue, candy pink and yellow in stock.

I’ve still got to list them online but I did get some Dear Stella Pirate prints, and a nice collection of cotton flannels in. You can shop them on my Instagram and in my Facebook VIP group, and maybe shortly after this blog goes live, they will be online for you too! We’ll see!

There are a few different ways to shop the fabrics and stock that I have in. Obviously, there’s this Threads + Bobbins shop site but I have learnt over the last couple of months that some people prefer other ways to shop. I have just started a private Facebook group, where you can browse what I have in stock and comment or send me a message with what you would like to order. I do tend to put all of my new fabrics there first because it doesn’t take me as long to list them. Same with Instagram. There’s a highlight specifically for shopping fabrics. AND I also very recently started an Etsy shop. So there’s lots of links there for you…let me know your preferred method to shop!

Just a quick thanks to those who do keep going back to look at my blog and order fabric from me! I really appreciate it! Keep checking back for updates, and I’ll be sharing some newer makes with you soon too.

Kwik Sew 3983 – Rosie’s Dungarees

Untitled

I absolutely love dungarees on children!  Though, when I say ‘dungarees’ here in Alabama, no-one knows what I’m on about.  They’re called rompers or jumpers here. Crazy. 😛 Anyway, this Kwik Sew pattern is just adorable and it’s one that I just couldn’t wait to make for Rosie.  I had acquired a random piece of pink fabric that had dark brown mini polka dots all over it.  I actually thought that the fabric was like a baby cord but it really wasn’t. I must have imagined that at some point!

Butterick 6217 – The Gertie Top

Butterick 6217

I can remember seeing this pattern a long time ago, when I had first started to seriously have a go at making my own clothes.  The Butterick 6217 pattern has been sitting in my closet for around 4 years!  I know I bought it when there was a sale on the McCall’s website.  I seem to remember that they do a really good sale every now and again.  I don’t think that I paid more than $4 for the pattern.  I always thought that this was a beautiful pattern but it was way above my sewing level.

Oliver + S Culottes

As I was browsing the Fabrciworm sale, I came across this adorable dusky blue lion fabric by Camelot Fabrics and knew that I had to buy some.  Luckily, when I’m making clothes for Rosie, they only require about a yard of fabric so I purchased a yard and got to having a think about what I would make with it.

Simplicity 8304 – View D – 2 Versions

When I made my #2018makenine plans earlier on in the year, they contained baby clothes.  Yep, that’s right…baby clothes for my baby.  Quite often I still think that it’s crazy that I’ve got the opportunity to make clothes for MY baby.  Well, Rosie is now 8 months old and apart from a couple of accessories, I’ve actually only made 2 clothing items for her.  We were given the Simplicity 8304 Baby Gear pattern as a gift and I loved the little dresses so much.  I decided that this would be my first venture into sewing for Rosie!
