Gingham Girls Stationery Kit
When I was a little girl, my mother sewed clothes for me and my sister whenever she could. After getting a glimpse of Amy Smart's new collection Gingham Girls for Penny Rose Fabrics, I was almost certain that she'd gotten a peek at my childhood closet. These prints would be right at home among those handmade dresses.
Light and happy and just a touch patriotic, Gingham Girls couldn't be more perfect for summer sewing.
I haven't stitched up a Stationery Kit from my tutorial in a while, and it always makes for a fun afternoon of sewing. While I love using these projects to hold note cards and stickers, they make sweet little sewing kits with just the quick addition of a felt rectangle for needles and pins.
I especially like using them for paper piecing. That snap pocket is just the right size for 1" hexagon paper pieces!
The more I work with Amy's fabric, the more I love it. I introduced her prints to my fabric stash too and found that it played really well with the rest of my collection. The kit was an early Mother's Day gift for my mom -- and a not nearly big enough "thank you" for all the gorgeous clothes she made for me over the years. I love you, Mom! You're amazing!!
Be sure to check in at Amy's website for more stops on the Gingham Girls tour in the next few weeks!
