Hi everyone,





Happy Friday…and Happy Halloween!! We hope everyone is having a ghoul-d day ;) We’ve got the Halloween spirit in the office today. Who says we can’t dress up and work? So much fun! We’re also hosting our Beyond the Backyard FQB x Westcott Giveaway on our Facebook, so be sure to enter if you haven’t yet.


It’s also time to end another fun-filled week with our Fan Friday!! Today we are featuring an adorable project using one of our collections from the awesome blog, Say Chez. Jen Chesnick is the blogger behind Say Chez, the name sparked from her nickname “Chez” and thus became her trademark. Jen started her blog because of her love for sewing and pretty fabrics, and found blogging as an outlet to share her projects & DIYs. Apart from her love for sewing, Jen is also a scrapbooking and photography enthusiast. Jen features the projects she makes (including adorable clothing for her daughter!) and scrapbook designs on her blog.




Jen decided to create an adorable Tilly Top from Brownie Goose Patterns, and modified it slightly for her daughter. A recent discovery of how easy sleeves are to sew, Jen had so much fun with this tunic top pattern.She modified it slightly by closing the back, extending the bodice, and adding sleeves. Such a sweet touch, and the ruffles? That gets a “yes!” from us!





Jen used our Fairyville by Heather Rosas Collection to make her adorable tunic top, and we think it is just the sweetest thing ever. The girly fairy-filled prints are perfect for a little nugget who loves to be a girly-girl and play outdoors too. Her daughter is seriously the most adorable girl ever. She looks so cute in her Fairyville top. And we hope she loves her top as much as we do!!


Thank you so much for the fabric love, Jen! We are so happy you love our Fairyville Collection, and thank you for sharing it with us! Her daughter rocking her tunic is seriously the cutest thing ever. You can find more from Jen at her blog, Say Chez, as well as on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. Have a Happy Halloweeeeen everyone!! :)





Happy Sewing!

It’s time for this week’s What We Love ♥ The cooler days and monochromatic colors have been inspiring us to be more creative by everyday experiences. Finding that inner childhood in all of us can be the best spark of creativity, whether reading nostalgic stories or dancing like no one is watching, sometimes it’s the simplest of things that can make the most happy. Take some time to be silly, eat that extra scoop of ice cream, and be your child self again. Here’s what’s been inspiring us this week… ♥
