Hello Dolly Whatcha Wearing?

It's great being a part of the Therm O Web Design Team and I get excited at some
of the fun opportunities I have because of it. Like sewing doll clothes...
Hello Dolly, whatcha wearing? Pajamas and a knit top, of course!

 I'm probably the oldest of the whole design team, but I'm definitely a kid at heart.
I love dolls!

These pajamas are in a book by Anna Allen, “My Doll, My Style” along with lots
of other great patterns. I'm over at the Therm O Web blog today showing some of
the products I used to make them. Look around at all the other amazing projects, too!

The clothes patterns are made for the popular 18" dolls.

The pockets on the pajama bottoms are easy to make and so cute!

Riley Blake Designs Special Delivery Christmas Fabric Blog Tour

It's always a pleasure to be a part of Riley Blake Design's blog tours.  
Special Delivery fabric designed by Carta Bella is just incredibly beautiful!

Look at these adorable fabrics!

Santa had the tree delivered and his bag is full of toys.

The stockings need to be filled!

The trucks get loaded with trees...

and loaded with presents, too!

So many fun things can be made with Christmas Delivery...what would you make?

I love Christmas!

Blend’ Fabric’s Limonella Table Runner

I'm on the Therm O Web blog today showing the process of putting this  table runner together. 
The Blend Limonella fabric is really beautiful and would brighten up any room!

Blend’s Limonella fabric line by designer Brenda Walton was such a pleasure to sew with. 
The fabric made my room and my day a lot happier with all the butterflies, flowers, and birds.

Therm O Web products, Blend Fabrics, and Aurifil threads make a great combination.

Such a great runner for a picnic, too!

A Little Summer Dress Made With ThermOWeb And Windham Fabrics

When my girls were young, I did a lot of sewing for them. This little sundress would have been 
perfect to keep them cool, because the heat in Las Vegas can be intense. Very, very intense! 
The designs of Windham’s Botany Fabric by Kelly Ventura and Windham Gypsy Fabric by 
Jennifer VanDenburgh, were perfect for McCall’s sundress pattern #7142. 

I'm over at the Therm O Web blog today sharing these sundresses.

Windham Botany and  Palette Fabrics

Windham Gypsy and  Palette Fabrics

I used Heat n Bond Tricot Fusible Medium Weight for the bodice...fusible tricot is amazing!
It's great for projects that need interfacing, but still need to drape a bit.

Aurifil Thread is perfect for any sewing project, including this one.

Stay cool!

It's Time To Sign-Up For A New Blog Hop In September

I love to sew for blog hops when I don't feel rushed, which is why I've been
posting my blog hops two or three months ahead of time. I hope that works for you
because it definitely works for me. Simple, easy, and no pressure is my goal for hopping.


It's time to sign-up for a new blog hop in September!

The rules for the "Welcome To My House" blog hop are easy:

Your project must have a house somewhere on it.
It can be a quilt, pillow, bag, toy, whatever, as long as there's a house somewhere.

Post your project on your assigned day.

Have a giveaway or don't have a giveaway. It's totally up to you!

Add a tutorial, sell your pattern, or just post photos...again, it's up to you.

Visit everyone's blog on the list and leave a sweet comment.

That's it! 
Email me with the following information if you want to play along:
