StyleMaker Fabrics Spring Canvas Blog Tour

Michelle sent me a note late last month asking if I would participate in her Spring Canvas Blog Tour. Her request was simple, take a piece of fabric from her online store's new spring line and create a garment of my choosing and then blog about it.  I could even pick my date during the blog tour.  Since I was in the middle of little girl/big girl sewing for the fashion show, I took the latest date I could get which is this Thursday, March 31st.

So a couple of things, like why would I agree to participate in this blog tour since blog tours have a so-so rap in the sewing community.

Honestly, it's because Michelle runs an online fabric store, Stylemaker Fabrics, and I truly believe that we as sewists need to support this industry! Also, it was a one-time gig and I'm just not up for monthly sewing for anyone anymore.  Not that I'm putting it down because I have some sewing sistahs that are knocking it out of the park sewing for other online fabric stores, I just know it's something I don't want to commit my sewing time too.

First here are the other sewing bloggers/designers that have participated in the tour.  

If you haven't had the opportunity to read their blog posts or see their garments on Instagram (#springcanvas) @stylemakerfabrics, you can catch up here:

3/21 - 3/22 - 3/23 - 3/24 - 3/25 - 3/26 - 3/27 - 3/28 - 3/29 - 3/30 - me on 3/31 and Lauren on 4/1

I'm thrilled to be participating in this tour...cause you know fabric is sooooooo my thing! And I have to admit that I had a tough time choosing a piece because the offerings were so amazing. I went with this navy and silver jacquard:

So come back on Thursday and see what I made with this amazing piece of fabric!

...as always more later!


  1. I have a piece of that fabric but in black instead of navy! I can't wait to see what you're making.

  2. I look forward to seeing what you make.

  3. Oh what a tease you are....but love the fabric you've chosen...I live on the E. coast so have to wait till later in the day to see the "blog of the day"....but have loved this series.....!

  4. Hmm. That is a nice piece of cloth.

  5. Well it was worth the wait! LOVE, LOVE your topper...great use of that fabric...and this and other's you've made is a very versatile piece for any wardrobe...especially for Spring when we have bright but still cold days. Absolutely love it! And I need to make myself one. The setting of your photos is also good, if you hadn't pointed out the apple I'd never see it-too intent on your make!..And it's a good one!

  6. Just found this - fantastic!!
