Sewing Patterns Article


Sew News Magazine featured a few designers and that although we design quilt weight fabric, there are many other uses... such as clothing, bags and more.... Nice article, thanks Linda Lee.
A lot of designers ask me why I create sewing patterns, and the answer is to basically share what you can do with the fabrics. Thanks to all of my pattern supporters... who have worked with me in developing and refining the patterns. Watch the tinagivens.com site for pattern upgrades, revisions and updates.... We're always looking for ways to improve on our patterns so let us know what you think? we'd love to hear!

Pink Polkadots..... & kits


What great timing..... Felice from Georgetown Indiana wrote me a darling note, and attached was her daughter, Lila who will be 2 soon.... dressed in the sweetest outfit! She chose the pink pokadots, TG66 and Medallion Bird in green, TG65....
To add to it, wouldn't she look great in Cookie Coat in this TG61 Green?


I am inspired Felice... I think we need to kit out Cookie with Fairy Tip-Toes... what do you think? I have also been thinking of kitting Fairy panels with backing and coordinating binding to make small blanket quilts for the novice... would make perfect baby gifts!
I am off on a tangent once again, thanks again Felice! Great pic of Lila....

From Fairy Tip Toes.....

I have always loved polkadots.... this is one of my recent fabrics, TG66 in pink {also comes in peaches and chocolate, and a ivory, chocolate and yellow combo which is also delicious!}... anyhoo, this fabric is now also available as an invitation and notecard.... watch your local stationery shop for these little gems.... we'll be listing stores online here soon where you can find a stationer who can personalize...... eek! I am so excited about this!
PS Polkadot Silhouette above is one of my best selling fabrics as simple as it is.... I think that is it's charm!
