Festive Magic: "Sparkler" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Growing up in Florida always made the holiday season a very unique one! Unlike most parts of the world where December is a cold and snow-filled month, Florida's climate is usually hot, sticky and humid. I grew accustom to decorating tropical palm trees with Christmas lights and not being able to wear a "Christmas sweater" without sweating, hah! It wasn't until this past winter, I was able to experience my first "White Christmas!" My husband, his family and myself flew north to Canada to go skiing right outside Quebec City. Being in the snow really puts you into ...

Always make sure you check the cutting layout when you are getting ready to sew a garment from a commercial pattern!  This one was a little unusual as it as for the size I was cutting it required me to fold a third of my ...
