Hulllloo. Happy November. November is great. Particularly this one. It's wonderful enough watching the weather change, the colors intensify through your window, the house feeling like a cozier place to be, and going outdoors feeling more like an adventure than a chore....but this November, two lovely happenings in the form of fabric are happening. The first is TRUE COLORS. People. This was so fun for me. Setting these parameters on my designing was a rewarding challenge and I love the results. I hope you do too!
Here's the schpeil from the website regarding the collection (all true, wrote it myself, so I know): I am thrilled to introduce you to my first collection of not-so-basic basics! True Colors is the latest collection program from Free Spirit designed by a select group that I am so proud to be part of. These prints and colorways are specifically designed to work beautifully along side all of my fabric collections. My twenty True Colors fabrics fill in any color gaps one might have in their stash to complete a full palette of inspiration. A gorgeous spectrum that is always good to have around no matter the style or the project!
And if you haven't noticed yet that you are floating amongst the most heavenly, chubby, sweet little cherub along with a divine assortment of colorful mini pants, I would like to point out the fabulous little knickers that are my latest free pattern for you. Cause I wanted knickers and so did the baby. She said so.
Visit my MAKE page to download the knick-knack Knickers sewing pattern by me. Knick-knack Paddywhack was my mom's favorite song to rock little ones too. So I sing it, and sew these (just twenty of 'em) in her honor of her silly, fun "Nani" self.
True Colors is loaded into our shop, as well as favorite shops all over the globe, so have fun! I'll get a Flickr group for it going soon and I can't wait to see all the sewing going down!
I'll be back tomorrow to scoop on Dowry after I can figure out a way to talk about it without crying sentimental tears. ;-P (fabric is happy, fabiric is happy, fabric is happy.)
xo, hugs, AM

Wooohoo I've been checking your blog daily just in case you happened to post about these two collections. They look FANTASTIC and I cannot wait to get my hands one some. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I love this collection -- and the free bloomers pattern. I have a first grand-nephew on the way, and can't wait to whip him up a wardrobe. I saw Dowry and know that some of those prints are very personal and historic for you; I'm sure it is bittersweet releasing this collection. But it is lovely.ReplyDelete
you know how i feel about this, right? i'm in love. with these prints, with dowry, with that baby. it's all sooooo good. xo.ReplyDelete
Just placed my AMH True Colors fat quarter pack order with Hawthorne Threads yesterday. WOOT! That's when I noticed the same title on other designers' lines, so I wondered what was up. Didn't know it was a Free Spirit program. Cool. Most of your fabrics make up my stash, so I ordered yours. (How could I not??) And... please... permit yourself to cry... as often as needed... while writing that post. Crying is not a bad thing. It's a bittersweet and beautiful thing, much like the collection (which, yes, is already in my stash :-) . Dowry is right up there with Drawing Room (even Sketchbook Ivory) in my book. Sigh. Must go pet Lineage in Taffy now.ReplyDelete
Another beautiful collection. You will be putting us all in the poor house if you keep producing such gorgeous fabric ;-)ReplyDelete
(And such gorgeous little cherubs to model them too!!)
I can't focus on the text. The baby cuteness is too overwhelming!ReplyDelete
Love, love those knickers and the cutie modeling them...ReplyDelete
Fell in love instantly and navigated to your website and ordered the fat quarters. I usually don't fall quite so hard. I usually have a bit of thinking time between seeing and buying but not this time. Can't wait to get my hands on your lovely fabrics!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful spectrum of chubby pant perfection! I love it all, the colours, the pants and that adorable little babe.ReplyDelete
Love all the little pants!ReplyDelete
She is so delicious! I love seeing that happy chunky girl among your beautiful art. Thank you for sharing both with the world. Well done!ReplyDelete
These would be extra gorgeous in flannel! Any plans?ReplyDelete
Beautiful babe and fabricReplyDelete
Hi Anna I'm really looking forward to your dowry post, because I am using a crazy vintage fabric that is sort of similar!ReplyDelete
Oh! These are awesome!!! Bravo!!ReplyDelete
How difficult would it be to modify the knickers pattern for a size 2T? I would love to make some but my babe is too big!ReplyDelete
I bet the 18 mos would not be far off from fitting at all.....they are quite roomy in my opinion :)Delete
Oh, AM...these knickers are to DIE for...thank you so much for the FREE pattern! I have made a number of pair of your Quick Change Trousers from your Handmade Beginnings book, so I can attest to the clarity and completeness of your pattern instructions! I cannot wait to make the knickers, and with two grand babies due in April, I will have TWO wonderful excuses to do so!! Thank you so much! P.S Baby Mary Anna is gorgeous...!ReplyDelete
thank you Corinne :) enjoy xoAMDelete
This is so clearly a triumph of a collection. I'm super, super eager to see some in person! I love your colors sense, so I know these will indeed be basics for me!ReplyDelete
Beautiful beautiful colours and loving those bloomers. Thanks for the pattern I do wish mine were little enough to make some. XoReplyDelete
So excited for this pattern. I just printed it out and hope to start sewing some up today. I just wish I had some True Colors on hand it's beautiful. :)ReplyDelete
The knickers are absolutely adorable, Anna! Kudos for the pattern!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous fabric! And even more gorgeous baby! Is this your Mary Anna Louise? She is just beautiful. So chubby and round and all that baby goodness.ReplyDelete

Hi! I love the look of those pants but am not able to get the pattern. Is the link still working?ReplyDelete
Hi there, links have moved around bc of web address changing last year, but they are still at the website on the MAKE page: http://annamariahorner.squarespace.com/make/Delete
