Ann Kelle KNIT fabric giveaway!!

Have you seen the new line of Ann Kelle knit fabric? Kelle of Ann Kelle creates the most amazing fabrics, and this new line has us squealing! 

 

We couldn't resist putting together a few pretties for a join photo shoot with LLK & Ann Kelle. Our social media coordinator Raedene (of Chasing Mermaids) made this bodice with Ann Kelle's Sorbet, and the skirt with Remix. using the Little Lizard King Homegrown Tank sewing pattern.

You can find Ann Kelle on her blog or at Robert Kaufmann.


This everyday play skirt makes me so happy - or maybe it's just the pop of yellow contrasted with the bold daisies! Either way, the knit and woven fabrics are both amazing; in fact, the Ann Kelle's entire Remix collection is really outstanding!


I love.love.love it!! This skirt is perfect for back to school or everyday play!


We recently made several circle skirts using Ann Kelle's jersey knit and our most recent sewing pattern, the Take 5 skirt. The texture of Ann Kelle knit is soft and buttery; the prints are all things girly, and the drape is perfect for lil' girls who love to twirl! Plus, who doesn't love hounds-tooth?





Have you seen her collection of cool cords? We've got a pattern in the works featuring these super soft corduroy prints!


Of course...we couldn't resist a Super Kid tote & skirt set. 


Now that we have you swooning over all things Ann Kelle, who wants to win five yards of Ann Kelle knit fabric and a $50 gift card to the Little Lizard King pattern shop? 


Head on over to Ann Kelle to enter!!

The Littles & Michael Miller Fabrics

Michael Miller Fabrics has a way of capturing our hearts with fabric. The featured line of fabric is The Littles


The color combinations in this line allow sewists and crafty moms mix and match prints with ease, create custom couture, and make memories with the Littles we love.

These Littles below captured my heart. 


Remember when you were little? Remember blowing dandelions and making a wish? Remember when a kiss from mom or a band-aid made everything better?


 The combination of navy and mint provide a perfect pop of color. The sweet styles with mix matched fabrics make the entire collection come alive! These models are just as sweet inside and out! Pink Pug Photography.


This dress was made using  the Little Lizard King halter dress sewing pattern. 


This pint size cutie pie is sporting the Swirly Skirt pattern and the world's cutest pig tails!


Big sister rocked the reversible Pinafore.


Tara Jones Photography had the inspiration for this darling fishing photo below. I'm personally in love with her matching mint converse!


Thank you, Michael Miller Fabrics for making such perfect fabric for the littles we love! 

Necklaces were made by Paradise Beads Designs, and hair accessories were made by Lil Beauty Boutique.
