Fabric and Blanks

 I have been MIA for about a month! So sorry!! Such is life with 3 kids in the Springtime! There is never enough time in the day blah blah blah you know what I’m talking about. I wanted to show you some new SPRING fabric that I got from TJs Fabrics. If you are planning a beach trip this spring or summer, get your GPS out and find TJs. If you travel to Destin or Panama City Beach, it might be doable depending on where you are coming from. Any detour will be well worth it! This first bundle is by Snap Pop by Sandy Gervais for MODA. I am a sucker for anything ORANGE!! Can’t wait to use these!!


These below are Riley Blake Ladybug Garden. LOVE LOVE the ladybugs!! I am also a sucker for GREEN & PINK!


Chevrons…. Oh how I love thee….. These are all Riley Blake also. These are medium and small chevrons and in case you’ve been under a rock for the past year, chevrons are THE BOMB right now. You can use them horizontally, and I have used them a couple of times vertically (see Fish 2 and Loopy Easter Basket designs below this pic).

How about some GINGHAMS to go with the CHEVRONS??? These are Riley Blake also and they match the chevrons perfectly!!! If you have seen my website, you know I use gingham A LOT. I absolutely love all of these colors also!

Have you noticed all of the new BLANKS websites popping up lately? I think it’s super exciting to see so many new options and what they are offering! Which reminds me I need to update my LINKS on my blog… Below are a couple of items from Drawing a Blank. This is a size 4T red Puff Sleeve Shirt. They also come in white and pink and go up to a size 6. DABlanks items are 100% interlock cotton which is thick and very soft. Inventory is in stock and ships in 24 hours. You can also find DABlanks on Facebook! I have not had a chance to stitch anything out on these yet but am seeing something with turquoise on this red tee for summer…..


I also have this cute long sleeved white dress with pink ruffle. They also have different colors, solid pink, black and white with no ruffle and short sleeve options (with the ruffles). This is a size 4/5 and seems very generous. I think this would be great at the beach at night when it can be a bit cool. This photo was taken on my covered porch but below is another picture which shows the bright pink!


Sissy is holding it up so you can kind of see the sizing. She just turned 5 and wears a 5T and this will fit her perfectly! Be sure to check out Drawing a Blank! I will add them to my LINKS list as well!


I just listed 5 new designs today at Applique Cafe, and Easter Designs are ON SALE! Have a great weekend!!

  1. Well, great post! Sadly, I just found the Drawing a Blank site from here and went there and they are closing! Well, closed on July 1st. It did say someone might buy them so maybe they will continue with some of these cute dresses and other blanks.
