La Loteria, Frida, Stars and Roses!

Thanks to Sew Mama Sew, I took advantage of a couple of great fabric shops (Fabric Worm and Hawthorne Threads) year-end sales and acquired these awesome fabrics. I’m excited to oil up the sewing machine and start working on projects!

I’ve been in love with Frida Kahlo since I was in my early 20’s. Her story and her art taught me a thing or two about self-acceptance. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with this. I’m thinking of either turning it into a skirt or a tote bag. La Loteria (which is kind of like the Mexican form of Bingo) print will probably also meet a similar fate.

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on the Valentina Ramos print below for quite a while now. I plan to make it into a lovely summer dress. I have several patterns for such a thing, so it’s going to be hard to decide.

Finally, this last fabric caught my eye because it reminded me of the Chicago flag and it will probably end up getting turned into a wallet or pouch of some sort.

I probably won’t be working on any apparel items until I’m done cross-stitching Ian’s portrait, but in the meantime I may complete a few small projects like totes and placemats!
