Toni by Windham is here! + New Project

The Toni fabric collection by Winham was added to the eBay store today. This is a lovely collection done in black, red, and cream. Some of the prints are very large. I posted a link to a tutorial on the Facebook page on framing fabric as art. Some of the prints in this collection would be perfect for this.

There is also a New Project of the Week using a couple of the prints from this collection. The project using the Start After Breakfast Finish Before Lunch jacket pattern by CNT Pattern Company.

Happy Stitching!

Nice Cardigan for Spring..

I was walking through Macy's yesterday and found a Michael Kors Cardigan just like the Draped Front Cool Cardigan by Pamela's Patterns shown below:

It was made in a navy blue knit and cost $110.00. It was styled with a sleeveless v-neck top and dark blue jeans. Nice casual outfit. Here's a picture of a similar cardigan in a lighter color so you can see the details:

First up in the line up is the Upine Jacket pattern. There are three different variations.

Next is the Swingline Jacket pattern. This jacket can be worn as a jacket or a top. It has 3/4 length sleeves.

The next pattern is the Small Change vest pattern. Think drapey fabric here. Wear it belted, tied or loose.

The Skirt Smarts skirt pattern is next in the line up. The skirt is a simple straight skirt with variation and two different closures.

Next is the Paper Bag Pant pattern. There are two variations with this elastic waist pant.

Last but not least is the Go Anywhere Dress pattern. This dress has princess seams and pleated patch pockets. There are many variations here. It can be a top, a tunic or a dress. Also, it can be sleeveless or have short or long sleeves.
Have fun looking at the new pattern line.
