As part of my fabric blog tour for Taking Flight Fabrics for Kennard & Kennard, I have the lovely opportunity of posting a blog post on behalf of Jess & Laura from over at Two of a Kind. They have made some divine toddler overalls in the green magpie fabric that you will fall in love with like, as I have.
Laura and I first heard of Amanda over two years ago and have since admired her beautiful designs.
When Amanda announced her Taking Flight blog tour we were only too excited to take part.
Amanda Brandl’s Taking Flight fabric range for Kennard and Kennard is simply stunning. The vibrant colours, and Australian inspired designs is unique and patriotic.
Laura and I really wanted to showcase Amanda’s beautiful designs and thought what better way, than to sew up a pair of toddler overalls. We chose the green magpie Taking Flight fabric and let us tell you it is amazing quality! The fabric itself is so soft, and the print is flawless. We decided on using the Tadah Vintie overalls and paired the fabric with these gorgeous wooden buttons.
This fabric is an absolute dream to work with. I’m a fan of a rotary blade and mat and most fabrics tend to move about the board but this fabric didn’t move!
It made cutting the fabric so much quicker and easier. And as the fabric has such a high thread count, I found that I didn’t need to use any interfacing for the bib section of the overalls. Again, making the process a lot quicker! It also irons quickly and holds its shape meaning it didn’t require an iron after being completed.
We cannot recommend this fabric enough. From the stunning designs to the flawless print, It truly is a must have in your stash!
We have loved following along with the blog tour and all the amazing makes. Yesterday, Rose over at Threadbare Creations made pretty handmade quilted lamp mats and be sure to check out what Raylee Bielenberg has created over at Sunflower Stitcheries tomorrow!
