Here comes the fun Blog Hop Day 2

Happy Tuesday friends!


I’m so excited to FINALLY show off my Here Comes the Fun (a new line of fabric by SewCaroline for Art Gallery Fabrics) projects I’ve been working on. I have to admit when Caroline started telling me about the line a while back, I just knew it was going to be my most favorite of all of her collections. I have one surprise project that you will see (hopefully) in a few months, but for now I get to show off my harem pants, pillows, and baskets I made.


When my bundle arrived I squealed a little bit! Fiskars was so so kind to sponsor the blog hop and send fabric scissors, snips, and everyday scissors. I’ve used all three every day since I got them. I’m obsessed. Such a great product.


My first project I played around with was making two bear paw pillow and a patchwork pillow using rulers. I played around with the blocks and created a bear paw with selvage centers and one with log cabin style centers. I love love love them. They are now resting nicely on my couch in the sewing room of our house!


My second project to whip up was the ever so fast and new favorite project, rope baskets! I’ve been procrastinating making these for a long time because they intimidated me. But they are so simple and yet so classy. Let me just say I will be making a ton in the future! Check out this post by Modern Handcraft for tips and links on how to make your own.


My last project I get to show you guys is the Harem Pants I made. These are my go to pj pants for Texas “winter” and I am so glad I got to whip up a pair in Here Comes the Fun fabric! They are so comfy. I am loving the bedhead hair I’ve got going on…Side story. I had every intention of curling my hair and making it look all cute. Insert teething 9 month old and you get the look above. Let’s call it cute. Or hot mess. Whichever.

I had a blast making my projects and cannot wait to show off the secret one in a few months. This line is just to die for. Every print is so perfect. Each time I go to look at it I come back with a new favorite or a new project inspiration. Caroline really outdid herself with this line and I’m so so proud of her!


Get excited!!! GIVEAWAY time!!! Caroline is giving away  a bundle of Here Comes the  Fun fabrics and a Fiskars scissors set. Go here to enter!
