{ Karamat }

I'm so excited to join in!! I love birthdays.So you probably want a little info about me... I'm Tammy - wife to Chris and mom to Megan (my 2-year-old inspiration). I've been sewing since I was in elementary school (I still remember the felt clothes I made for Barbie!) and took up quilting while in college. Now I spend my sewing time making clothes for Megan, and quilt tops that never seem to get quilted. You can keep up with my sewing and family adventures at year I turned my love of fabric into a business and opened Karamat Fabrics on etsy ( I'm having such a great time picking out fabrics for the shop (the new things coming in this August/September are going to be GREAT!!) and helping people fulfill their creative needs. As a birthday gift I'd like to give away 2 charm packs - winner's pick from those in stock.Thanks for letting me join in the fun!!Tammy

weekend projects!!

well kids... it's memorial weekend! i know many of you will be traveling or vacationing this holiday away... but sadly the boy toy has to work all weekend :( So... i will have plenty of time to visit lost loved ones and finish some sewing projects! i've been working on my Swiss Army Quilt again and i think i'm almost ready to start sewing the blocks together! ;)

if you must have these fabulous fabrics too... for your own swanky quilt... Kerri's got all the goods!! Check out her fantastic store ( shh... she does custom orders too! )

Sew Deerly Loved

and... i have been playing with the idea of sporadically opening my etsy shop again with little handmade treasures ( limited qualities only! ) haha... i don't want to get into custom orders again... they really made my hobby a job! LOL

i needed a new travel calender and picked one up last night at the targ'et... and low and behold... their Liberty of London is now on clearance, so i picked up a cutie travel pad too. but my pad was soooo much more clever then my ugly calender... which led me to a little patchwork cover for her :) now they look smashing!!

what do you think??? Etsy worthy???
either way... have a wonderful holiday weekend!!
Xo, Heather

eazy breezy.

top and clogs: Topshop * skirt: Zara * flower headband: Primark * watch: Michael Kors * butterfly ring: H&M

i thought that since summer is coming soon (ehem, rain rain go away!),
i´ll be incorporating my must haves for summer in every post. ;)
they´re not of special order, just what comes to mind.
this time, high waisted skirts.
i found these super cheap zara skirts (freakishly similar to the double pocket skirts from american apparel, which i also have in three colors) for 9,95 euro.
they´re super easy to wear. a basic top and some accessories and then you´re good to go!
so perfect! especially when i really don´t care what to wear on a hot hot day.

ps: thank you for the sweet comments on the last post.
i love you guys.


Summer Bling Quilt!!

beautiful pink diamonds... does it get any girlier??? i think not! haha... i had been itchin to try a { half square triangle } quilt for sometime and last week... i finally got my chance! i played with a couple different designs... but after some thought and comments from friends on Flickr... i went with an off centered diamond ;) Katie has an amazing Flickr group that has severe HST eye candy and after i scanned their photo pool... this one gave me a lot of inspiration!

since my clever oldest was holding up my quilt top for me... he thought i'd be super funny to take a quick photo of me... not looking to pleased! haha... what a stinkerbutt!!

now back to my { me + you } quilt with my dear friend Joan!!

The Swiss Army Quilt!!

Here's too having a fantastic weekend!!

XO, Heather

leopard dress and studded belt: H&M * clogs: Topshop * leopard clutch: Jimmy Choo for H&M * watch: Michael Kors

i have been dying to try this leopard on leopard trend.
and now that i have found THE dress, i just immediately proceeded with it!
how do you like it?
i might try different versions in the future!

dots!! holey cute!! & a fabric score for YOU!

my fabulous boy toy took me shopping in my favorite spot this past weekend... Hawthorne ( for all my Portland local readers )!!! this area of town is known for their hippy spin on all things modern. I feel completely at home there and it also happens to house one of our most chic fabric stores... Cool Cottons. I lOVE this store... it always has these fantastic little treasures that have been long gone from our beloved online retailers since they still hand write their receipts! I picked up a few gems there and thought i'd share with my readers... some others that are still available at regular boutiques prices! Just call and give them your order by phone and they'll promptly ship it out to you!

other treasures:

Amy Butlers - Linen/ green Full Moon Dots & Wallflowers
Heather Ross - Mendocino Fish ( glass colorway )
Tula Pink - Nest ( birds on teal )

i have to remember to bring a camera next time!! haha... Here's their info for all those interested!!


And here's what i've been working on... Polka DOTS!! I lOVE dot's... but, with 3 boys in my home... i have to be creative to fill my house space with them!! LOL... so my compromise, was to trick them into believing they don't look like dot's if they are on a wall!!... and yeah... they bought it!!

I love my fabric in hoops/ dots surrounding my sewing space in all my fav designers, some with embroidery, and some with applique! It's like a rainbow of color dancing around my sewing space!!

i can't wait to find more hoops for my wall ( i've cleared out my local distributors! )haha... but these are terribly addicting!!

Here's to hoping you had a blast this past weekend too!!
Xo, Heather

ahoi sailor!
