Farmhouse Summer

 Hi and Happy Summer!

Last year this time I was in Europe, Tuscany Italy to be exact!  This summer we are staying put and working on some home projects.

Seattle is beautiful in the Summer so we will definitely make some local trips around the area.  Tonight we will be taking a boat ride around Lake Union and the weather is perfect!

Speaking of Summer, I had the pleasure of making a few items with the new line of fabric "Farmhouse Summer" designed by Echo Park Paper for Riley Blake Designs.

"Farmhouse Summer" is a lovely combination of florals, plaids and dots and works perfectly with Riley Blake Basics including Bee Gingham, Florette and Blossoms.

A few of the prints have some adorable motifs that are perfect for fussy cutting.

The cute prints were just perfect for my Home Sweet Home pouch where I highlight the Flower Pot and Summer Wildflower prints in the window and door.

The Ruffle Purse is a new pattern I designed with "Farmhouse Summer" in mind. It has a roomy outside pocket and a fun ruffle detail around the top edge.

The body of the purse features the Main Floral print and the ruffle is Summer Dots in Red.

The lining features the Denim Farmhouse Floral print with a gingham inside pocket.

Farmhouse Summer is such a fun collection and the possibilities for projects are endless!

Happy Sewing!
