This post contains massive amounts of my favorite things: beautiful fabric, cute kiddos, and great friends!  I’m elated to be joining in on Heartland Fabrics Blog Tour put together by the fabulous Karly from Paisley Roots.

I love all things Art Gallery and this line is absolutely to die for!  The patterns and colors are just right up my alley.  Soft pinks and blues, vibrant mustard and greys… all the choicest colors in one line!

They are perfect for year round wear but especially fun for back to school!

For our back to school looks I used patterns from Shwin Designs.  I used the Stella Tunic for my daughters top.  I’m crushing hard on that high-low peplum!  It’s such a beautifully classic top with just the right amount of flair.  My little man is sporting a Maxwell Top.  I adore all the details on this shirt that make it so cool!

His top is made using Trekant Rows Breeze.  I love the modern geometric print!  Big brother asked if I could make him the same exact shirt, he loves the fabric so much.  This is a quilting cotton and is so soft and lovely.  If you’ve never worked with Art Gallery cottons I suggest you get on that!  They are my favorite for my kids clothes.

Wait! OK- maybe not my favorite.  I forgot how AMAZING this voile is!  It’s incredibly soft and luxurious and I want to sew with it forever! I’ll be making my own top out of this as soon as possible.  Do you think people will notice if our whole family is sporting this fabric daily?  This is the Blomma Garden Pastiche print just so you can get your own stat!

Pair it with knit in Unn Cross Pine and it’s an outfit she couldn’t wait to wear to school!

We had so much fun joining our friends Paisley Roots, Made by Melli, and Sew A Straight Line for a super fun photo shoot.  The kids had so much fun together after they warmed up a bit.

My Charlie sure thought Sabra’s Jonas was the coolest kid on the planet.

He helped him start an acorn collection (mom’s favorite) and they bonded over their love of football- especially the Denver Broncos.

These two together were the funniest!  So sweet, shy and awkward but so darn cute!

And these boys have all the heart eyes from me!

I loved watching the kids interact with each other and seeing how all the fabrics coordinated so well.  It will really take all my willpower not to hoard every single print!

I’ll leave you with a little dab from the four-year-old 😉  Make sure to check out the other amazing bloggers sharing their gorgeous makes this week!

  2. DEAR HEAVENS!!!! The cuteness factor is ramped waaaayy up in this post. Maybe your four year old can marry one of my girls. They would make cute kids. 🙂 Now, to the fabric… I’m loving your choices and pairings. I may need to scope out that Stella Tunic! Super adorable, and I love the dolman sleeve.

  3. ALL the pictures! My goodness you got so many amazing ones! I’ll have to beg you for some! Your kids are the cutest and I just adore your outfits. I really want a whole bolt of that floral. It’s so stunning! Thanks for being on tour Tami! I absolutely loved the group shoot and think Charlie is right that we need to do more!
