Field Day by Alison Glass

Field Day is reminiscent of childhood play and happy memories. As a kid, field day was always the best day of the year! A full day of competition. I absolutely loved it! The 100 yard dash was my personal favorite, as I always outran the boys!! I'm no longer frequent the halls of elementary school, and I stopped outrunning boys shortly after my husband chased me down, but Field Day still brings back fond memories, which is one of the reasons I'm so thrilled to introduce you to Alison Glass' newest line of fabrics....Field Day.


Today, I present to you the lovely Field Day by Alison Glass. This field day is gorgeous. The colors are vivid and vibrant. The collection is unbelievably unique, and perfect for fall. 




 Doesn't it make you dream of autumn? Check out the color! 




We used the Little Lizard King Knot Right Now pattern to stitch up a 5T top and a 2T dress!!



P.S. If you'd like to win a large Aurifil thread set, donated by Aurifil, and a fat quarter set of Field Day, donated by Andover. Plus a copy of the new pattern, Alternative, check out Alison Glass' blog! You can also find her on Facebook!

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.
