Ink & Arrow Fabrics ~ Whip It Up!

2016-04-19 15.46.20 copy

Happy Friday!  I am so excited to finally share a big secret project I’ve been working on in the studio.  A few weeks ago Sew Mama Sew gave me the opportunity to sew with a new fabric line called Whip It Up from Ink & Arrow Fabrics as part of a kitchen sewing challenge.  I’ve been showing little hints on IG on what I’ve been working on but today you get to see it all!

Aren’t these patterns and colors the cutest?!  Once I had the fabric in my hands I kept thinking of retro-vintage kitchen decor.  The blends of black, white, orange, yellow, and aqua are casual and fun.  There are salt and pepper shakers, utensils, phrases with kitchen instruments, and more.  So after sketching and getting ideas I went decided to create a simple tea and biscuit setting.

2016-04-19 12.51.01I used the salt and pepper fabric in orange with the black and white utensils to make simple napkins with a fold-over binding.  These are very easy to make and wash well too.

What is a tea without a biscuit or other sweet treat?  I used Insul-Fleece again to make this simple fabric box.  It is literally a large square that has the sides pinched and sewn.  I’ve seen versions of this with ties twisted on top, but I stitched about 1 1/2″ down from top to secure.

And the scones? Oh yeah, these have been a treat in our house for years. We usually add chocolate chips, but you can easily add other things as well.  I did not create this recipe, but if you want to try it out here it is:  Petite Vanilla Scones .  I have even substituted vanilla yogurt for the sour cream with great results!

The mug rug came last to sew up.  It’s about 10″ x 12″ finished and has enough room for a cup and saucer, napkin and a scone!  The tea bag and tab accent was made using wonder under and hand stitching the string.   Now I’m all done and ready to enjoy some quiet scones and tea before the kiddos come home!

The Totes Ma Tote by Emmaline Bags…on Steroids!


The Totes Ma Tote by Emmaline Bags is one of my favorite tote patterns out there.  It has great pocket storage with a magnetic closure and a nicely designed hidden zipper panel.  If you have sewn this pattern you know how the fabric selection can take this tote to a business room, or to the beach!  I have a customized Totes Ma Tote in my Etsy shop right now that I love.  It’s slightly smaller than the original and I modified {Read More}

Exciting Metallic Linen Shop Update


I have been slowly building up my stock of my favorite Robert Kaufman linens the past few months.   The quality and style are top of the line and are so versatile.  You may see them being used in quilts and garment sewing, but did you know they are awesome for handbag and accessory making?  Last year I started stocking their Essex Yarn Dyed Linens in my Etsy shop.  They have been a great seller for me and I use {Read More}

They’re Multiplying! A New Vintage Sewing Machine


I once had a small but cute vintage sewing machine (VSM) collection.  I didn’t set out to collect them.  The only older machine on my wish list was a Singer Featherweight.  They are small, lightweight and very portable. I wanted to use it as my quilting machine.  So I waited and hunted and when I saw one at an auction for a great price, I grabbed it!  All done collecting. Or so I thought. For Mother’s Day last year my {Read More}
