plus side quilt pattern (free pattern) / ann kelle fabrics

This quilt is so fun! It incorporates my Urban Zoologie, Remix and Kona solids. I did the placement of prints for this quilt. I really wanted to add a punch of yellow in there, but decided to stick with the red, blue and gray color scheme.  You can find the free pattern links below. There’s also a version with pinks and aqua.

Looking for a fun duffle back pattern for your next weekend getaway? Gingercakes has a great duffle bag pattern, available in both kid and adult sizes.

cropped top and skirt sewing pattern / ann kelle

A skirt was one of the first things I learned how to sew. We made a fun skirt using the One Seam Skirt Tutorial (with pockets by Sycamore Shorts Pattern) out of my Remix dot fabric. The top and pockets of the skirt were made using Kona solids. We also made a reversible vintage inspired crop top to match. I think they turned out adorable!

Day Off Bag Pattern

July 18, 2016


day out back pattern / ann kelle fabric
This bag is full of all kinds of happy! The pattern is the Day Off Bag pattern by Gingercakes. We used my new apples from my Back to School fabric collection, along with coordinating Kona solids. And we mixed things up a bit for the inside, using my Remix dots. The bag pattern includes sizes for adults and kids,  as well as a “mashup”  combo of the adult size and kid size. The boxy bottom is one of my favorite features of the bag. There’s plenty of room in the bag for you to carry plenty of items, as well as an interior and exterior pocket. Two thumbs up, Gingercakes. This is one awesome bag!

ann kelle summer sewing outfit

Summer is here. And boy-oh-boy, it’s hot! Needless to say, I’ve been wearing lots of sleeveless tops and shorts these days. We mixed and matched two of my favorite Remix fabric prints for a fun summer outfit.  To create our playful attire, we used the Sunny Top & Dress pattern by SewVery and the Sycamore Shorts Pattern by Sew Like My Mom. (The fabrics used in these projects are listed below). Happy Summer!

One of the sweetest things about the Sunny Top is the back. The straps and bow are precious.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for THIS ice cream quilt! This is one fun quilt! Once I saw Sylvia Sutters of A Stranger View’s Mod Ice Cream Quilt pattern, I was giddy. It’s the perfect summer quilt . . . reminiscent of childhood trips to the ice cream shop, tasting all the flavors before settling on a new favorite. Using my Remix prints and yummy Kona solids, this quilt is all about playfulness and color.  To make one, head here for the pattern. There’s also a pattern for the pillow which you can find here.

ann kelle fabric / made to play
One of my favorite things about being a fabric designer is seeing all the cool things that are being made with my fabric. I stumbled upon the brand, Made to Play, recently. Their store is full of fun items. They’ve used my chickens and owls in children’s aprons, as well as my plus print in fabric bunting.

They also have super hero capes and these really fun dino capes. They’re not made from my fabric, but they’re too adorable not to share with you. Be sure to visit Made to Play to see all of their fun handmade goodies!
