Valentine’s Sewing with Raspberry Creek Fabrics

valentine14

I’ve been sewing a ton for my kiddos lately and it’s about time they all made it to the ol’ blog.  Today I’ll share all the lovely, cozy goodies that I’ve done with some of the newest fabrics to hit Raspberry Creek Fabrics.

I hope you’re planning on sewing a couple of projects for Valentine’s because Raspberry Creek has got your fabric needs covered!

This pretty floral french terry was so fun to pair with other coordinates in the shop.  I used the Metro Pullover from Sew Straight and Gather.  I love the cowl option and all the opportunities it has for color blocking.  I paired it with the mint stripes, mint dots, and light grey french terry.

Big sis fell in love with this fun springy gingham.  I used the Janie Dress from Mouse House Creations and love, love this darling dress!

Little Bro was loving this ‘Tic Tac Toe’ fabric- I loved how convinced he was that it’s not just x’s and o’s!  With a little solid white and black jersey and a darling cut file from Thread and Grain, this basic Jolly Roger Raglan turned out too cute!

Such a fun line right?!!  And in true RCF fashion the new prints just keep coming…

The newest Minimalist line is simple and clean in black and white.  These two cute cousins love their new tops.

Cute Hank buddy is wearing a School Bus Tee in handrawn triangle jersey.  I’d say it’s a winner!

Charlie got another Jolly Roger Raglan- this time I sized up and did a crossover hood and kangaroo pocket.  This pattern is just about all I need to keep this kid in tops- cozy sweatshirt, fun tee, it does it all! In plush french terry it’s too good!

Sew Straight and Gather’s Metro Pullover

Terri at Sew Straight and Gather has got another brilliant pattern for you.   I have an addiction to making sweatshirts and consider myself quite the hoodie connoisseur so when I say you need this pattern you better hop right on that!

There are two patterns- one for kids and one for women/men.  A pattern for the whole family is always going to get a lot of use in my house.

Each pattern comes with a hooded version or a cowl neck.  I made a couple of each just because I couldn’t stop.  Seriously, I want to see you make just one…

This cutie got the first one off the sewing machine.  I just adore his little face peeking out of that hood.  I love the unique hood and the fit of this sweatshirt.

I used Raspberry Creek Fabrics french terry in solid charcoal and oatmeal. The combo is neutral and the charcoal stripe hood lining just ties is all together.

Payton’s was next and sewed up in a flash.  She picked out this anti-pill fleece from Joann’s and it worked just lovely for this pattern.

She got the cross-over cowl version.  It’s nice and big which makes it so cozy and cute!

The girls and ladies version have this darling pleat detail in the back.  It gives it a little more flow and adds just that little something extra.

There is a curved hem or a banded bottom option.  Payton got the curved hem.  I loved her version so much I headed to the fabric store the next day so that I could make one in my size!

I wasn’t signed up to test Sophie’s size but just loved this pattern so much I knew she needed her own too!  She got a cowl with a banded bottom out of Joann’s fleece.

My first version was a beautiful eggplant french terry (from Raspberry Creek) hoodie version.

I’ve had this lightweight mustard/cream stripe in my stash and it was absolutely perfect with this eggplant.  I used it to line both the hood and the pocket.

I love the slim fit of this sweatshirt- not too baggy, not too tight!

I whipped up my cowl microfleece version in about a half hour after making the others.  Seriously, the cutest, quickest sew ever.  It is so cozy and I dreaded taking it off!

I think we’ve found a new favorite pattern.  The big boys are feeling left out so we might need to whip up a few more real soon!

Terri’s patterns are so clearly written and I love her clean, crisp layout.  She offers lots of tips and her tutorials make sewing a breeze even if you’re just a beginner to sewing.

Terri has graciously offered both patterns for $4 each or $8 (CAD, so us Americans will save even more!) for the bundle for a limited time.  Are you doing last minute Christmas sewing?  Or finished up and need a little selfish sew?  I’d waste no time and grab this pattern TODAY!  Pick up the kids version here or the ladies/mens here but really you should just get them both– you won’t regret it!
