I'm starting to work on filming my next @skillshare class (Pattern Camp Level 2!) and was lining up these pillows for part of the intro video and I just liked how they looked and thought I'd show them to you here. These are all made from my Tallinn fabrics collection with @artgalleryfabrics ! _____________________________________ #agf #artgalleryfabrics #tallinnfabrics #patterncamp #fabricdesign #prettypillows
@artgalleryfabrics sent me rolls of the knits and rayon from my Sirena fabric line! The collection is now in stores, so you just might be able to get these lovelies at your local quilt shop. Or online, obviously. On the left of the photo is my first-ever attempt at a knit dress, made by tracing a dress from my own closet and then simply winging it. Practice and mistakes help you improve, right? I hope I can turn it into a cute and wearable dress! Right now.... it needs some work. ;) ________________________ #agfsirena #agf #artgalleryfabrics #sewingwithknits #makeyourownclothes
This makes me feel happy.
I realized I never did an actual Sirena is now in stores post, so here it is! I'm thrilled to tell you officially that you can now get my newest collection with @artgalleryfabrics, Sirena, in quilt shops worldwide and online. Sirena is directly inspired by my childhood love of mermaids and a summer when my sister and I were obsessed with the movie Splash and thought we could turn ourselves into mermaids by adding buckets of salt to our kiddie pool (it didn't work, as you can imagine). Blue and purple reign in this underwater queendom. The world of the mermaids Aquamarina and Violette is adorned by friendly sharks, dancing octopi, bright corals and the exotic fruits and leafs they gather from the ocean’s surface. This is the Violette colorway. :) I hope you love it! If you prefer shopping online, it's in stock at @hawthornethreads, @fabricworm , and @fatquartershop to name just a few. Otherwise, head to your local quilt shop and see if they've got it in stock! (And if they don't, ask them to order it, of course!) Also: so many people responded to my call for sewists a few days ago (and unfortunately I just won't be able to choose everyone, for logistical reasons) so I've got a sewing challenge up my sleeve that will hopefully satisfy everyone's craving to sew with this summery fabric of mine. Stay tuned for more details next week! . . . . . #agfsirena #agf #artgalleryfabrics #jessicaswift #summersewing #fabricdesigner
This is the card I chose today. Jellyfish. Here's what I wrote about Jellyfish in my Animal Allies Oracle Cards deck: When jellyfish shows up for you, it's time to ask for help. Going with the flow (jellyfish can't move themselves and depend on ocean currents to move them). This watery animal can help you discern whether you're seeking out the best energy currents in your life, or if you're floating aimlessly and not getting to where you'd like to go. This is meaningful for me today, and I hope it might be for you, too! __________________________________________ #animalalliesoracle #animalallies #jessicaswift #jellyfishart #jellyfish #animalart #oraclecards #oraclecardoftheday
You guys! I'm looking for some folks who'd like to get creative and sew a summer tote bag with my brand new fabric line, Sirena, with @artgalleryfabrics. Does this sound like you? I hope so! If you're interested in learning more, please send me an email or a DM (email address is in profile). I'd love to connect with some talented new makers that I may not know yet (and those that I do already know, of course!) and get some Sirena fabrics into your hands so you can create some truly beautiful and useful bags. Can't wait to hear from you!
