Hi everyone,





Happy Friday! I hope you’re having a good one. Wishing you all a fun-filled, maybe sew-filled, weekend :)


But before we go, let’s end the week with our Fan Friday! Today we are featuring some pretty makeup bags from Alex of godiesew on Instagram. From Alex’s feed, we can definitely tell she has quite the passion for sewing and fabric – we can relate hehe. She shares her latest fabric finds and sewing projects (and the occasional sweet kittie picture) on her Instagram, including these makeup bags featuring yours truly. We can spot two of our collections – Let’s Go and the Design Studio Collection! Each makeup bag features a coordinating zipper and metallic leather bottom, which really adds a fun element to them. Such sweet bags!






Thank you for the fabric love, Alex. And thank you for mentioning us on Instagram! If you would like to featured in a future Fan Friday, you can send your photos to or tag us on Instagram. It always makes us smile to see the love that you all put in your projects & fabric choices. Have an amazing weekend!!





Happy Sewing!

Time for our weekly What We Love ♥ Lots of adorable things and cool stuff pinned on our board this week. From creating cat latte foam-art to making adorable cross-stitch Pokemon starters (Roxanne cross-stitched the ones in the photo!), we’ve been inspired to think “outside the box” and do something crafty. And the awesome life-size cardboard castle? It gets our official seal of approval ;) See what else we have been loving… ♥

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a great day – Happy #FriendshipDay!! As well, if you haven’t entered our Magnolia FQ Bundle Giveaway yet, be sure to check it out here.


Thankful Thursday time!! Today we are featuring an adorable little ballerina doll that we had sewn up for our Spring Quilt Market, featuring our Heavy Metal Collection. Kara Orr, an incredible sewer and friend of Pattern Revolution‘s, sewed a couple of projects for us for our booth, including Briella the Ballerina (that’s what we named her hehe). The pattern is from the retromama pattern shop which features a bun hairstyle, little ballerina shoes, and a full tutu. She just dazzled in our Heavy Metal collection. The crinoline skirt & gold ribbon that Kara added were the perfect touches; she did such an incredible job bringing her to life!







Kara, thank you for bringing Brielle to life for us – she is more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!! Everyone absolutely adored her at Quilt Market. Stay tuned for the other projects Kara made for us – you are wonderful. Have an awesome day!





Happy Sewing!
