Happy Monday friends! Another start to another great week…. SO today is a fun day- I’m today’s stop on the blog hop for Jennifer Sampou’s brand new fabric line, Black & White, for Robert Kaufman fabrics!
When I met Jennifer at fall market, and she asked if I’d be interested in participating in the hop, I only had to take one look at her gorgeous booth of fresh, versatile fabrics…um, YES! And I knew instantly what I would make- the Sailor Top!
Ah, yes! I’ve been dying to make this blouse (a brand new pattern by my friends at Fancy Tiger Crafts) and as soon as I saw these darling little polka dots, I knew it was a match made in heaven…I will wear this top ALL the time! No literally, like every day.
And a scrap strip of some Kona solid yellow was just enough to make a perfect little flower brooch.
I also have to mention…and you know I wouldn’t unless I really meant it…I was really, truly, quite impressed with the thickness of the fabric. Thick, soft…wait a second…did I actually just stitch up a high quality, designer blouse, at my dining room table in 2 hours??? Never again, Old Navy or Gap, never again will I throw $40 at you for a top that will most definitely shrink, ravel, and fray in a few washings, and that 9 million other women are probably also wearing, when I can make a custom high quality top like this on a lazy afternoon while sipping tea! (epiphany moment). Maybe I like garment sewing afterall.
This yummy line of fabrics is available in stores NOW, so go check it out! If you make something, be sure to post about it on social media and use the hashtags #blackandwhitefabrics and #jennifersampou
And don’t forget to check out the other stops on the blog hop! Lots of fabulous projects featuring this fantastic, versatile new line. Quilts, bags, clothing….there’s nothing you can’t make with blacks and whites!
