Sidewalk Showcase Finale!

Today I’m wrapping up the Sidewalk Showcase, an online showcase featuring my Sidewalk knits collection for Cloud9 Fabrics, with a few more fantastic makes from some of my favorite makers online! Vanessa of LBG Studio made a Waterfall Raglan for her daughter. She looks so cute in her new top, doesn’t she? Meredith over at Olivia Jane Handcrafted made such

Isla Dress in Sidewalk Knit

Aww yeah is it Spring yet? This dress is definitely screaming “SPRING” to me! It’s an Isla Dress made with the “Prize Garden” floral print from Sidewalk, my line of knits for Cloud9. This print has been really popular and it’s definitely one of my favorites. Also: cute with my cropped cardigan, no? Isla makes a

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to show you some of the fantastic projects that have been posted as part of our Sidewalk Showcase! Brooke at Oliver’s Fancy managed to make a little something for each of her boys in the green Art Class print. Plus, her newest little guy Charlie made his debut on her

Here’s a little more Sidewalk cuteness for you today! These Flashback Tees are all samples that Jess sewed up for last spring’s Quilt Market. As with the two Isla samples I posted last week, the designs were printed on Spoonflower fabric so we would have samples in time for the show, which means that they are a

Sidewalk Astoria Top

Here’s something I whipped up the other day: an Astoria top from Seamwork magazine in the art class print from Sidewalk. I think it works (as do many of the prints in this collection) as a “grown up” print, don’t you? This is probably hard to believe, but I always try to design fabrics meant for women’s apparel,

Two Islas in Sidewalk

These two prints are called Fancy Steps and Lawn Ornament, and are both part of my new collection for Cloud9 Fabrics, Sidewalk, which will be printed entirely on knit fabric. I’m very excited about this. We had a

New fabric preview: Sidewalk!

Maybe no one else noticed, but I took a break from designing fabric last year. A baby/toddler in your life can do that. But by fall, I was starting to feel a strong desire to sketch and design again, and it was really wonderful. I forget sometimes with everything else going on how much I love that. Anyway, those designs
