Floatin' with the Fishes!
I think we could all use a tropical vacation... walks on the beach with sand between our toes, sun in our hair and shells in our pockets. 

Sea Buddies is fresh, cheery and bright just like a walk on the beach :)

Alpaca you a QUILT!

Alpaca's have a pretty big fan club... and we're in it!

We couldn't just stop with a quilt! We also made a Packmates dress using X's & O's by Olive Ann Designs.
 We loved this pattern so much that we made the quilt in blue!
 You can make it too! For the free Packmates quilt pattern in blue, click here. For the coral version, click here.

Let's get Kitschy with Flamingo Love!

Now that the holidays are over, who's ready for some Valentine's Day sewing? 5berries' Gatsby Dress is an amazing pattern... and don't you just love the heart confetti too?
The top of the dress is Flamingo Love and the mid-section and skirt are made with Heart Strings
(Click here for the dress pattern)

 **Here's a fun trick for your Valentine Cards~ fill a card with a handful of heart confetti, place the card in the envelope with the spine at the bottom and seal it. When your lucky Valentine pulls out the card, they will be showered with "love". :)

If you're not mentally prepared to start sewing for Valentine's Day but you still want to sew with flamingos, then how about some selfish sewing? Or a no-sew home improvement project?

Sew this New Look Tunic for yourself (or your bff)... especially if you're planning a tropical vacation!

I found an easy fabric covered wall art tutorial here.
The Flamingo Love Collection is shipping to stores now!

Don't forget to share your handmade photos with us- we love to see what you create with Michael Miller Fabrics!
