I am so glad to be part of the launch of Hawthorne Threads new collection: Calliope.
It is no secret to my followers that Hawthorne Threads is one of my favorite online shops.
I found it online by chance 2 years ago and fell in love with its range of fabric and customer service at once.
This november they released 2 home-printed collections: Calliope and Bengal.
Calliope is the perfect fall collections for girls or women who have kept their girl's souls!
The colors are soft corals , beautiful pinks and indigo.
I am in love with the feathers designs and the graphic hearts.
But most of all with the "Three muses in bluebell" print: my girl loves the ginger haired muse and we used her face as the focal point of the project I made for this blog tour.
Encore un blog Tour!! quelle joie!
ET oui! j'ai beaucoup de chance!
Aujourd'hui je vous fait part du projet que j'ai réalisé avec la nouvelle collection de tissus créés par la boutique en ligne de tissus: Hawthorne Threads.
Cette collection se nomme Calliope et tous les tissus sont tout à fait adorables.
J'ai créé un sac à dos pour ma fille.
I mixed it with some "Creative spark in tulip" for the sides of my bag and with "Rhythmic in indigo"for the zipper sides.
I sewed a Toddler backpack . The pattern is by Made-by-Rae and it is a great pattern.
The updated version has a tutorial for a child's size bag, like the one I made for my 8 years old.It is an easy sew, but you have to be patient and not fear piping , which I don't!! noone should be afraid of piping! see my tutorial to add piping to any of your projects!
I used my walking foot and it helped to sew through the different layers, especially for the shoulder straps.
The bag is fully lined with this feather print: how adorable?? It is called "Poetic plumes in white". Love that name!
