Sewing Pretty Bags

The other day I received a complimentary copy of a brand new craft book, “Sewing Pretty Bags” by Debra Valencia and Cheyanne Valencia. I was thrilled to see my own fabric, Blooms & Berries, manufactured by Robert Kaufman, featured on the cover!  Sisters and sewing partners, the Valencia’s put together this fabulous book packed full of fun sewing and craft projects using modern fabric collections from fellow textile designers.  Debra Valencia is a textile designer who has created fabric collections for some top textile manufacturers that are sold widely as quilting and craft fabrics.  Cheyanne, sewing project designer for the book is an expert in sewing and needle arts.  The project they created with my fabric collection is called “Stylish Grocery Tote Set”.  Congratulations Debra and Cheyanne on the release of your first craft book and thank you for including my fabric collection!

Fashion Top Design Of The Week

So excited to see this design up on the  BeforeandAgain’s website!  Of the eight designs they picked up last year, I think this is my favorite.  What do you think?  I am going to try and do some more hand painted art in the future.

Vote for me! Please.

I’ve entered a design contest at Spoonflower.com and if you are so inclined, please vote for me at this link.  The theme this week is ‘Penguins’ and I’ve entered my pattern “Penguin’s Snow Day”.  There are quite a few entries, so I apologize that you’ll have to scroll through dozens of designs.  Be prepared for a big dose of cuteness.  You can vote for as many as you like, but I’d appreciate a vote for me and tell your friends!  My shop name is listed with the design as Popfortune which I will explain at another time why I chose that name.Print
