We are so excited to introduce you to Monica Spiehs and her mad sewing and pattern designing skills! We can't even express how lucky we were that Monica volunteered to help us with our sewing projects! She was a rock star taking on so many pieces and designing them as well. We just gave her a few thoughts on what we were looking for and she made them come to life! She made the a-line skirt in the yellow polka dot fabric, worn by Michelle from her own design. Then, she created the little numbers dress with the ruffled sleeves for her own daughter, Lilli. We can't even handle the cuteness of both, the dress and Lilli! Really, are you kidding with how darling that dress and all its little details are (the yellow buttons, the pink top stitching... ahhh!)? Then, there's the baby romper, modeled by sweet Amya! Another dose of sweetness overload, no?! We just loved the ideas Monica had for how to make our fabrics come to life! We are pestering her to start making patterns for the rest of us to use because they are just too good not to be out there in the world! As if those weren't enough amazing projects for her to take on, she did our flag banner as well. So cute for a nursery or kid's playroom, don't you think? Monica: thank you doesn't even cut it. We are so grateful for your talent! Thank you for your time and generosity and for supplying one of our lovely models! We can't even wait to see what Monica is up to next. We are hopeful it includes some patterns for her designs or some kid's clothes!

We know we've been a bit MIA on the bloggity blog lately and we apologize, but don't think we aren't still keeping an eye out for the latest and greatest....cause we are! (always) We've been tracking this trend for a while and are just loving the various iterations of it! Getting to see the brush strokes an true hand of the artist show through onto all these great products is so refreshingly modern, don't you think?
And, we are sharing our brand new (like, as of 30 minutes ago) iphone case because it just fit this collection too perfectly. It's just one of a whole series of patterns that we did for Surtex 2013, so we hope you'll be seeing this splashed across some other exciting products soon!!
Are you guys loving this painterly look as much as we do?
