babydoll dress pattern

November 29, 2016

babydoll dress pattern / ann kelle fabric

I’ve always adored babydoll dresses. The simple neckline with an empire waist make this dress a gem. The Bohemian Babydoll Dress pattern by Elegance and Elephants is an easy-to sew e-pattern. You can have ruffled sleeves! We used a bright kona solid for the top and my Rainbow Remix “xxxx” print for the skirt. Find the pattern here, along with a ton of other gorgeous patterns.

fabric sighting: car wallet

November 22, 2016

car wallet / ann kelle fabric
I featured a car wallet a few years ago.  (It’s still one of my favorite fabric sightings!) I recently found this car wallet by Three Loves featuring my most recent Ready, Set, Go prints. It’s slightly different in that it includes a little street. I’m always amazed at the fun things that are made out of my fabric.

baby bib sewing tutorial

November 17, 2016

ann kelle bib sewing tutorial

Whenever it’s time for a baby gift, bibs are a great option.  We mixed and matched my Slicker (laminated cotton) prints with Kona solids along the edge. Using the Slicker fabric on the front allows you to easily clean up messes. We used Shannon Fabrics’ Velour Terry for the backing. The velour terry fabric is ultra plush and makes the bibs so soft! Find the free tutorial here.

(new) space explorers

November 15, 2016

space explorers fabric by ann kelle

Today I’m happy to share with you my newest fabric collection, Space Explorers. There’s a total of 9 prints in the collection. The two color ways are Mint (yes!!!) and Primary. It was a ton of fun designing this collection. While designing this collection, I was taken back to grade school. I remember spending hours and hours making a hanging solar system model, only to get them into a tangled-mess on the way to school. (Thank you, Dad, for coming to school the next day to help un-tangle them.)  I hope you enjoy the collection. This fabric collection ships to stores December 2016.

diy harem pants

October 25, 2016

toddler harem pants / ann kelle fabric

These harem pants are legit! Did you get the MC Hammer reference?;) We made them out of my new knit fabric with a pop of color for the waistband and ankles, using this pattern. They’re great for your little one that’s on the move, with plenty of room for their diaper.

And let’s talk about this adorable toddler tee by Cheerily. It was the perfect addition to the harem pants.

kitty purse sewing tutorial

October 18, 2016

kitty cat purse sewing tutorial / ann kelle fabric

I found this ADORABLE kitty purse sewing tutorial by Choly Knight. We sewed one up and it’s so, so cute! We made a couple changes to our purse (the whiskers and we added a nose). And of course, my Urban Zoologie kitties were used for the lining. We also used Shannon Fabric’s black faux suede for the exterior. It made the bag look and feel so luxe. One of the things I like about this purse (besides it being so cute) is the size. This purse can carry a lot of goods, which is always a good thing. Find the free tutorial here. Below you’ll also find our personal tweaks and sewing notes to accompany the tutorial.

kitty cat purse sewing tutorial / ann kelle fabric

Our sewing notes: For this purse, we used the Kitty Purse Sewing Tutorial by Choly Knight. We used Pellon Flex Foam sew in stabilizer on the faux suede exterior and Pellon shape flex sf101 on the lining fabrics. We basted the flex foam just slightly inside the seam allowance then trimmed the foam within the seam allowance as close to the seam without cutting it. (This reduces bulk in the seam). We also used Shape Flex interfacing in the strap. We used a larger needle 90/14 for sewing through the suede and flex foam and a slightly larger stitch length (2.5-3.0). We added a magnetic snap instead of the sewn in snap. The nose and whiskers are craft felt that is stitched into the exterior panel.

3 easy diy costumes

October 11, 2016

easy diy costumes / by ann kelle

I think my love of costumes originated from my Mom. When I was a child, my Mom would make the BEST costumes for us kids. Using creativity and things around the house, she would always come up with the most unique costumes. And the costumes weren’t just for the kids, my Mom and Aunts (Mom’s sisters) would also wear costumes they made. One year, my Mom and her friends decided to wear costumes based on the Wizard of Oz. My Mom was “Dorothy.” I remember watching her make her ruby red shoes by dousing them in glue and then dunking them in a bowl of red glitter. I thought she was the coolest. One year, she went as Mr. T. Yep, she’s the coolest mom. In honor of her, we decided to make simple, diy costumes based on the kids in my Pumpkin Fun fabrics. These are super easy with loads of cuteness. Find the directions on how we made these below.

My Pumpkin Fun collection is all about pumpkins, candy and costumes. We used this fabric collection, as well as my Remix fabric for the bags. There’s a fat quarter bundle that includes the Pumpkin Fun prints, Urban Zoologie cats and coordinating fabrics.

goody sack pattern / fabric by ann kelle 1. Goody Sack Pattern: This bag is huge! And that’s a good thing for candy collecting. This bag can easily be folded and stored when not in use, which is an additional bonus. We used coordinating fabrics for the inside.

what’s in your purse?

September 27, 2016

pouch sewing tutorial by ann kelle

If I were a kid, these would be the contents of my purse. Coloring utensils, such as crayons, markers or coloring pencils, were a huge priority. A cute wallet to carry my coins. And of course, little games to play to keep me entertained. In all honesty, not much has changed. What’s in your purse? (Also, to make these little pouches, find the free tutorial here).

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!
