A project for little girls, your work, and my friend Vikki...


Do you have little girls in your family?
I have grown up girls, and little grandsons. But, that doesn't mean I won't design little girl projects!
I *love* little girl projects.

In the June 7th issue of my magazine, Elefantz HOME, I have a gorgeous little girl project for you to make...

"It's Raining"
...a doll quilt and matching bag...

The quilt measures 14.5" square, and fits perfectly inside the sweet matching bag!

There is also room for dolly...

...and look at the raindrop fabric I used as the quilt backing.

The little umbrellas-in-the-rain blocks are so easy to stitch...
 ...and the entire project is quick to finish.

In Friday's free weekly newsletter (you can sign up HERE) I will have some kits for sale to make this project, as well as some fat quarter bundles of the Gumboot Garden fabric ready to purchase.

BUT if you want the kit you must be an Elefantz HOME subscriber. The pattern  will only be found inside the next issue of Elefantz HOME magazine, which will be emailed out on Friday, June 7th. Follow THIS link for all subscription information. You're going to love the patterns in this coming issue!


(Oh, and as a new subscriber I will send you a free Elefantz pattern as a welcome gift!)



Have you made any Elefantz projects that you'd like to show my blog readers?
Please email me with photos or a link to your blog post.
 Here are some I received recently.

Preetha has used one of my free Promises & Borders blocks and added her own verse. 
I love that she added a part of herself to the project!

 Heather purchased my "All Things Bright" pattern and stitched it up immediately!
Isn't it gorgeous?

Thanks for showing your work, ladies. I'm so humbled that you have stitched my designs. xxx


Last thing to leave you with today, is the most beautiful free design that my adopted little sis, Vikki from Sew Useful Designs shared for Mothers Day, but I think it would also be perfect for birthdays and Christmas...

The pattern is HERE in her Craftsy shop.

Take some time today to visit Vikki's blog HERE. It's a place you'll want to dwell in time and again. You'll see me there too...we can both swoon over her talent. 

Our Blossom is full up with her first almost-winter head cold, so she'll be home from work convalescing with something warm and nourishing from my kitchen. I'd best get there right now...have a corker of a day, won't you!?

Hugs
Jenny

Oh Jenny what an adorable design! It speaks to the little girl in all of us. I just finished All Things Bright, and today I'm stitching down the binding on Lord Bless You....I'll send you pics soon. I hope Blossom feels better, John is sick with a cold too, but had to work anyway. :(

Oh Jenny, what sweet designs! I particularly love the little girls doll quilt and bag. How cute! Again, you never cease to amaze me with your talent. I shall be popping over to Vicki's blog to snoop around.

No girls to stitch for, so I try not to feel too sorry for myself. Your pieces, as always, are lovely.
