The “Favorite Things” Blog Tour has started over at Raspberry Creek Fabrics, and I am thrilled to be a part of it this year! This year, the Blog Tour accompanies a big, fun announcement from RCF! Historically, they run a selection of super fun CLUB Prints for a limited time, and those prints go into retirement when next year’s line is released. I didn’t discover Raspberry Creek Fabrics early enough to get in on some of my favorite prints that I’ve seen others use, so this has always been such a bummer to me. Along with the Blog Tour, though, they’ve announced that their previous CLUB lines will soon be available to purchase, no matter when the release date. You can read all about that HERE! They’ve also announced a number of new substrates to be included as options for those lines to be printed on! I was SO excited to hear this, and quickly dove down a deep hole of old CLUB lines trying to decide what print I wanted to work with, now that I had access to them all! It was a HARD choice to decide which to work with first!
I fell in love with this fabric immediately when I saw it online. The color is such a beautiful rosy shade of grape purple, and I had a good feeling that it would pair nicely with so many things in my closet. It made a lovely Christmas outfit this year!
As a member of the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Promo Team, I had the pleasure of picking out a couple of yards of any of their fabrics to work with this month. This double brushed poly caught my eye right away. I fell in love with the colors and print immediately, and the fabric paired with this pattern are a match made in comfy Thanksgiving outfit heaven!
Fibre Mood Magazine Issue 12 launches today, and I’m so excited to have been included in an amazing group of sewists who got to try out a pattern from the magazine ahead of time to help promote and show you what you can look forward to in this issue. As I’ve grown to expect with Fibre Mood patterns, this skirt pattern is lovely, was easily constructed, and although a circle skirt is nothing new or groundbreaking, this one has a couple nice little details that I loved.
