Free Fun Printables!

Hello everyone! 

A few days ago, I was thinking what can I do to decorate my sewing room a little? Then I realized I have everything I need already but maybe few pictures frames will brighten up the room. I always believed that positive phrases can empower us. Especially, when you want to get into a creative mood. So, I created five picture frames with fun inspirational phrases for constant motivation! I placed them in my sewing room and I love how they look!  

And of course I want to share them with all of you so make sure to click the link below to download all 5 of them!

Picture Frame 2
Picture Frame 3

So let's get printing and start decorating! 

Happy printing everyone and stay tuned for more awesome freebies!

Fashion and Indie Folk

Hello everyone!

I wanted to make this blog post for a long time now, but I finally took a little break from sewing and making fun YouTube videos and started typing away. As you all know, I love fashion and I seek inspiration for future collections on the latest fashion runways. Once my collection is finished, I refer to fashion runways and trends, once again, for my LookBook production.
For example, I created these stunning pair of jeans with my Khokhloma Burgundia print. I cut some of the big and small flowers and glued it to the jeans with fabric glue. I was inspired to do so by looking at some awesome fashion trends.  

When I design my collections, I focus on how these fabrics are going to be use for future makers. I want to make sure they can make their outstanding quilts as well as fabulous outfit. For example using Khokhloma Gloom and Flecks Indigo, I created this jacket, which perfect for a Sunday stroll.

So there you have it, a little bit of my inspiration when creating textile designs. Stay tuned for a new video coming up your way very soon. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and hit the bell button to be notify of new awesome videos!

All of you have seen this beauty inside the pages of the Indie Folk LookBook, but I think it deserves a blog post of its own. The Fable Quilt or "commonly" known as the Elephant Quilt has receive so much love from all of you, I am greatly thankful.
