Today we are switching things up, and instead of featuring projects using our paper collections, we are sharing projects created with our fabric collections!
Fabric Bunny, by Christine Ousley.
Easter comes early this year so I’ve already started on spring clothing and fun pets. This cute little bunny was made from a machine embroidery pattern. It was my first time making it, so there are a few problems, like the arms pointing in the wrong direction, but it’s all good because my little guy loves it anyway.
So of course he volunteered to help me take pictures.
The body of the bunny is made with Minky, a very soft fabric. I used Bella Blvd fabric from Snapshots for the accent fabrics on the bunnies’ tummy, arms and legs and ears.
The bunny got a many big hugs once it was done. This pattern does require a embroidery machine but Dolls and Daydreams offer regular sewing machine patterns as well so that you can make your own softie for your special little person.

Fabric Pincushion, by Nichol Magouirk.
I’ve been wanting to make the flower pincushion from the Fig Tree Quilts With Fabric & Thread Book for quite some time. What better fabric than with some of my all-time favorite Bella Blvd. oranges, yellows, and greens.
With just a few scraps of fabric and batting and a little stuffing I was able to sew up this sweet pincushion that matches the zippered bags in my sewing room! Add a few decorative pins and you have a lovely decorative pincushion that is sure to bring a smile every time you look at it!

Tissue Holders, by Kathy Frye.
These cute little tissue holders are a fun way to show off the adorable Bella Blvd. fabrics! I used some florals, stripes, and the little house prints for this project, a combination of prints from the Snapshots, Sunny Happy Skies, and Summer Breeze cotton fabric collections.
These fabric collections work great for mix and match! And they are just sweet little gifts.
