I am so excited to be part of the Gnome Matter What! fabric tour! I have to say I feel like the small blogger on the totem pole of these stops, and I’m so thankful to have been invited. Check out all these rocking blogs along the tour! After you scope out this post, don’t miss the raffle copter waaayyyy down at the bottom!
Ink & Arrow Fabrics is a new to me company. There is a store locator to help you find fabric stores close to you that carry it. I was just playing around with the locator and totally discovered a shop I didn’t even know existed just 6 miles from my house. How does that even happen?! It’s almost too embarrassing to say. I guess I’ll be checking that out this week sometime. I’m hoping to attend quilt market next fall so maybe I’ll have my eyes opened to even more of the companies out there that I’m not aware of. I can’t wait.
Alrighty then, how about we show of some of the Gnome Matter What! line, designed by Alicia Jacobs Dujets. This line is full of cute little features that remind me of summertime fun in the back yard. I made looks for the littles to show off these fun designs.
This first look features a floral design, Sketchbook Garden Natural using the Swallowtail Top from Lil Luxe Collection. It’s such a feminine top and a perfect pattern match for this print. This is probably my favorite of the line because I am totally a floral girl. If you follow me, you probably already know that. I paired this floral with the Square Dot Blender in Charcoal for the flutters and the bloomers. I used that Tadah Flexi Shorts which is a pattern I hop back to from time to time.
This print features dainty sketched flowers with faint colors of green, purple, coral, and blue. It’s just enough color to keep it simple but not boring. A nice balance. The background also features a faint grid print as well.
For our second look we just had to get our hands on those cute Gnomes! I’ve thought Gnomes were cute before Gnomeo and Juliet hit the theaters and they got cool. 🙂 I stitched up the Willow Skirt from Violette Field Threads in Lawn Ornaments in Seafoam with the Madelyn Top in Snails in Natural. You see, I got sucked into that sale a few weeks ago and needed to justify the purchase by actually sewing up those patterns. I guess I can check that off the list now. #justified
We topped of the top with the Square Dot Blender in Lilac for the collar. It was a great way to pull some of that purple from the other prints.
And sometimes I just don’t want to do button holes, so check out those Kam Snaps while you look at these cute little snails. You can see that this also print features a faint grid paper background as the floral. The math teacher in me is doing a little happy dance at that design feature.
And before we get to the rafflecopter, we have some fun moments. We have started getting rather goofy in our shoots lately, so here is a little bit of the craziness we had while wrapping up.
Ends at midnight, Wednesday, April 12. The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to claim their prize.
Don’t forget to swing by the rest of the Gnome Matter What! Tour featuring fun fabrics from Ink & Arrow Fabrics. Don’t forget to scope out the other Ink & Arrow Lines. I absolutely love the Zola Line, so I’m going to see if my newly discovered shop has any of that in stock.
