Hello! I am so enjoying the bit of sunshine we are getting here right now...if I don't go outside, and I only look at the sky, I might think it was April or May! It's bright and blue and looks like spring is here. But I know better. Haha. It's like 2 degrees with a wind chill factor of minus 20.
So anyway.... I thought I would send you a little snippet of what I made during my little hotel getaway. These are ideas for patterns that I am busy working up for the spring International Quilt Market in May. These are all sewn up in my Spirit collection, but they will all be redone in my new and upcoming collection, called Lola's Posies. I may even show you a bit of that as well!
They will be available in a size range of 6 months to 6 years. So here we go:
First up: the pinks and greens: This is the peasant style top with the super twirly skirt. I made all these pieces to fit my little Lola girl:) Size 12 months.
This floppy hat goes with the set.
Notice the cute contrasting fabric covered button and loop closure.
This skirt is super fun and flouncy! (But this is a weird angle)
Next up: The Kimono-style jacket and pants, with the beanie-style cap. All of these pieces are completely reversible!!
Turn-back cuffs make them fit for an extra long time.
as I said, reversible.
Last but not least, the super sweet paneled sundress, and that same floppy hat. Perfect for a day at the beach, or at the park, or anywhere!
Now for the blue/coral combo: this is the same peasant blouse, only with short sleeves this time. I made all these pieces in this colorway to fit my little Halle Rose! (Size 3)
And here's the twirly skirt with the Kimono Jacket and Beanie cap in this color combination!
I love this skirt...you can combine it so many ways!
And...the Jacket with the reversible capris.
... can't wait to see them all in their sweet little clothes! I'm sending the package today, so Britt can test drive them. (They have to stand up to those two little bundles of energy to make the cut:)
Oh...I did say I would show you a little Lola's Posies.
This is the Rose colorway. Just a little collection of snips so you can see how it works.
That large cut is 24" wide! It's a nice large scale design...perfect for clothing and home decor.
This collection debuts in May at Quilt market, and hits the shelves just after that!
So that's all she wrote, and all I made, but I'm nowhere close to done. I haven't even gotten dressed yet today. (Now that's embarrassing!)
Having too much fun with the blog.
Hope you have lots of fun things planned for yourself this weekend...even if it's just 'stay at home and veg'.
