Happy new year! I have been so busy lately working on some big things that are happening this year, that I've been slacking off a bit on posting! Oops! 

 But finally I am sharing with you my newest design with Alles-für-Selbermacher. Its called "Raccoons" and is printed on the snuggliest, softest, lightweight sweatshirt material ever. No joke - I am wearing it right now! 
Not only is there fabric, but also ribbon! Ahhh! I am so excited about that :)
AND labels! Double Ahhh!

Here is what I sewed up for my little Luna:
And take a look at what these fantastic sewists came up with:

Pusteblumen! My latest design is available from Alles für Selbermacher in 2 cozy fall colorways - navy and mustard.  The two colors work just as well together as they do when they're standing on their own :)  Here are some of the fun creations that have been sewn up already...

I am thrilled to announce that starting today, you can find my designs for Alles für Selbermacher in their online shop!  When I got my fabric yardage in the mail I was blown away by the soft and snuggly quality of their Summer-Sweat Jersey which my first designs for them are printed on :)  Here is just a peek of some of the amazing things that are already being sewn up with "Kites" and "Ponyhof"...

I am SUPER EXCITED! about this - I am planning to produce my own run of fabric with my designs I have a supplier all lined up but before I take the plunge, I am starting with a test design and having a mini run printed to see how it goes. If you like it, I'd love if you help me spread the word so this can be a success!!!

See it and buy it here!

Its okay to freak out with excitement about this. I sure am!!!!

Here is my entry for Lilla Roger's Global Talent Search... the equivalent to American Idol for Illustrators :) I am so happy with how my piece came out since I think it really reflects who I am as a designer. Now to see if it makes the first cut - sizing down 999 entries to 50! 

The assignment was to design a piece of wall art around the theme of Terrariums and including text of some kind.  Since terrariums always seemed a little like flower prisons to me, I approached the assignment from this angle...

Despite the sunny days, and the fact that the new school year hasn't started yet, doesn.t mean its too early to start thinking about your Christmas sewing projects! We all know they only come out just right with time and love invested and for just that reason, Westfalenstoffe has recently debuted the newest additions to my wintery Kitzbühel collection.  So you can buy the fabric now and still have plenty of sewing time before Christmas.  Here are a peek at the new prints:

And a reminder of the original collection which can be found at your local fabric store:

 As always, if you sew up something in these fabrics I would love to see!

Flower Inara and Flower Frenzy are now available from Lillestoff!  And since I just picked up my first spool of elastic thread from Frau Tulpe a few days ago that I can't wait to try out, it looks like its time to get sewing...

22. July 2014

Our newsletter launches tomorrow!  Are you also excited?  If not, maybe its because you're not in the running yet for our giveaway of 1 meter of my "Ausflug" fabric from Lillestoff!  All you have to do you get in on the fun is sign up for the newsletter here.  Winner will be picked tomorrow morning :)

This week I am excited to be included in Jenipher Lyn's book launch blog party for her amazing book, "How Being  Stubbon, Depressed, and Upopular Saved My Life".  Its an amazing book filled with Jenipher's honest and heartfelt story and lots of sweet illustrations which is a must-read for girls going through the battlefield of growing up.
 My contribution to the party is an illustration for the insecure 11 year old in us that can feel like we aren't measuring up, aren't cool/pretty/skinny/creative/smart/whatever enough.  Or for the times we feel like we're doing okay until we see another girl walk by who is cooler/prettier/skinnier/creativer/smarter/whateverer than us and we decide that her life must be perfect and who we are suddendly isn't good enough anymore.  Well to that I just want to say:
 This would-be "wondergirl" that you are comparing yourself to probobly also has days like this.  And insecurities and struggles.  But your fabulousness is not dependant on anyone else.  You are fabulous because you are who you are.  Because there is no one else like you.  Because you are doing what you were created to do even if its not always smooth sailing.  So keep your chin up, girlfriend!  And don't let other bring you down!

"Ausflug" is my newest design with Lillestoff and its perfect for the upcoming sunny (hopefully) summer days, road trips, and family outings.  How will you use it to make your summer a little more sweet???
