Fabric-Fix Goodies

Remember the Fabric Fix blog I did!? Well I received my items and was able to get some selfish sewing time and sew some spring items for my little one.

Lets start with the package! I got a little excited and forgot to snap a picture of the unopened package, but I love the extra touch to the exterior ❤

Once opened I found a plethora of goodies!

Dritz Ez-Pull Bobkin – This is simply a life saver and I don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner. No more safety pins as this is small enough to fit the elastic into casing. If you’re worried if the elastic will detach it has a secure closure and teeth to grip the elastic.

1 spool of Sulky Petit Thread – I’ve never used this thread before, but this thread is very durable & has an array of colors. If you want your seams to last longer this is definetly the thread to get.

1 Create Kids Couture Willow Wrap from the paper pattern collection (note they also carry Willow Wrap as a PDF.) I read through the instructions and they were so well written and the visual instructions were a nice touch to help walk you through.

1 Sewing LED light keychain! I quickly added this to my key chain as a symbol of my passion for sewing and as an added bonus a LED light for those in a pinch moments you need a light!

Lastly OMYGOODNESS ❤ The Riley Blake Lulabelle Collection:

Lullabelle Main Navy
Lullabelle Main Mint
Lullabelle Petal Pink
Riley Blake Cotton Solid Jade

This has to be the best woven I’ve worked with since I’ve been sewing. Soft texture, with a durable hold, light fraying (because lets be real woven does fray)… To add, when I purchase the cheaper woven I tend to get a lot more fraying when gathering. Riley Blake compared to the cheaper scale had a lot less fraying. The vibrancy of the colors are phenomenal. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Riley Blake Collection you can do so, HERE. So many wonderful prints to choose from.

So with all these goodies what’s a girl to do!? Of course make a Spring outfit for mini. I opted for the Create Kids Couture Sparrow A-Line Halter and Rizzo Retro Shorts:

I made Sparrow A-Line Halter as a top with the collar option. I used Jade Sulky Thread for top stitching the collar and top. I used the Navy Lullabelle for the main and the Jade Riley Blake for the Collar and Ties.

The bottoms I used Rizzo’s Retro Shorts. I made the slim version without belt loops . I used my Lullabelle Petal Pink for Rizzo’s.
