Quick Sews and Fabric

2016-05-30_0001

A little something different than what I typically sew. I recently was selected to sew up these strike-off fabrics from Peek-A-Boo fabrics. This is my first time sewing with Peek-A-Boo fabrics and I can’t get over the quality! Seriously. The fabric is thick and super soft. The difference compared to the local big chain fabric store is….well, there’s just no comparison. I have only ordered¬† knit fabric online once before and I was very disappointed. It was very thin and the stretch was terrible. Although at the time, I didn’t truly understand the ‘weight’ of fabric. Now that I do and I have felt the difference, my fabric budget will need to be adjusted accordingly. ;)

This panel and coordinating fabric is part of Peek-A-Boo’s back to school line. Pre-order closes June 6th, so you may want to hop on over there and place your order before it’s all gone.

The tank pattern is by Brindle & Twig. It’s perfect for summer and is a very quick and easy sew.

This skirt pattern by Bella Sunshine Design is also a very quick and easy sew. I love it! I’m not really the twirling skirt/dress type of mom, but look at that twirl! It also has attachable shorts for underneath. I’ll for sure be making a bunch more of these skirts for summer.
