Wacky Wednesday 5/25

Every other Wednesday, Danielle from Whimsical Fabrics puts a bundle of fabrics on sale in her group for a special price. I have been purchasing mine ahead of time. We have had a blast picking out patterns and brainstorming what can be done with these bundles. This weeks bundle is titled Geometric Bliss. You can see what I made with the other colorway HERE.

The first item I made with this fabric is a Reese Party Dress by Modkid. I shipped it off to one of my best friends for her little girl. She took some wonderful pictures of her little girl in it. You can read more about the dress pattern and see more pics on the Pattern Revolution blog.

The second Item I made with this week’s bundle is this adorable Sunny Day Suit by Whimsy Couture. She just released this pattern and it is on sale for $5 through the 26th of May. You can get your pattern here. This is a fairly quick sew, it took me about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, this includes multiple 3 yr old interruptions.

This one is a size Newborn, and it is to tiny it wouldn’t fit on my infant mannequin! I tried putting it on my toddler’s 20″ doll, but the proportion are completely wrong on the doll for the straps.

Here are all the pattern details:

Sizes: Newborn though a girls size 6. Pattern can be made for boys as well, but recommended for 2t and under.

Multiple strap options (Snaps are NOT included as an option, but I don’t like putting buttons on infant and toddler items)

A snap tape tutorial is included.

 2 pages to print.

Clear pictures and directions making this a fairly quick sew.

 

 

If you haven’t shopped the Wacky Wednesday deal before, here is how it works: At 12 noon CST (1 pm EST, 10 AM PST), Danielle will post the fabric for today’s deal.

You will receive each of these 5 fabrics in your bundle.
If you would like multiple bundles the fabric is still on the bolt and will be cut in continuous yardage.

• FULL YARD Bundle (5 total yards)
• HALF YARD Bundle (2.5 total yards)

Be sure to be in the Whimsical Fabric & me Facebook group so you don’t miss out! These deals are usually good for 24 hours, but have been selling out quick lately!

Whimsical Fabric Wacky Wednesday

Every other Wednesday, Danielle from Whimsical Fabrics puts a bundle of fabrics on sale in her group for a special price. I have been purchasing mine ahead of time. We have had a blast picking out patterns and brainstorming what can be done with these bundles. This weeks is Dreamy Vintage in the Berry color line by Art Gallery Fabrics . It just screams spring and summer!

I loved this line the moment I saw it, and knew I would be sewing up something sweet with it…I just didn’t know what that would be just yet… I started looking through patterns, nothing was jumping out at me and screaming “This is the pattern!!!” I rarely buy a new pattern anymore since I have so many already, but when Denise from Whimsy Couture  posted about her apron pattern, I knew I had my pattern!

I chose to sew up the size small (12 months to a 2T and Medium (up to a 5T) in a simple version to really showcase these beautiful fabrics! There are 6 in this bundle, and I was able to get 8 aprons out of a 1 yard bundle, this scraps left over. The pattern sews up super fast! I made 2 aprons in about 20 min from cut to top stitch.I already have a bunch more planned in my head, including a few scrappy ones that will make perfect art aprons!

Whimsical Fabric and SIGCreations

Today, I have a fun little outfit, great fabric deal, and a coupon code! Be sure to read all the way down!

If you follow the blog, you will remember these cute skirts from a couple weeks ago. Well, I am back with another fun bundle from Whimsical Fabrics!

I sewed up a Delaney and the Birdie Ruffle Pants from SIGnature Creations. I used this weeks Wacky Wednesday bundle from Whimsical Fabric. They have these deals a couple times a month. They are usually 3-4 fabrics from a cute line, at a steep discount for 24 hours or until it sells out! These are available in her group page.

I have had the Delaney pattern forever! I fell in love with it, but my super modest kiddo refused to wear it with the open back, of course, now at 13, she is saying “I could put a cami under it!”, which is a valid point, it is super cute layered as well!

When I saw these fabrics, I fell in love with this outfit immediately!

Just look at that cute bow in the back! If you like options, she also has an add on pack with options to close the back, add a corset, and a few other choices.

These fabrics are just such a cute set! I love the little mice and birds on the main navy fabric!

For the birdie pants, I altered the construction and how I did the ruffles and the waistband. Rather than sewing the bottom ruffle on, then sewing the second ruffle on top, I opted to layer them together and sew them on at the same time. it is a little trickier to ruffle the 2 fabrics at the same time, but I just went slow and it worked out in the end.

For the waistband, I used my favorite tutorial by Jocole for a truly no roll waistband. This is the only way I will sew an elastic waistband these days!

The fabrics are just perfect together! I used a 1 yard bundle for this outfit (a size 3T), and I have 24″ of the pink, and 18″ of the other 3 fabrics left over.

These will be available in the Whimsical Fabric group today! Here are the details for the Wacky Wednesday deal:
