Welcome to my newest pattern collection, Jewels. I am excited to announce that fabric swatches have been ordered and I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. This Jewels fabric pattern collection has been living in my mind for months and to see it come to life is exhilarating.
My love for jewelry dates back as far as I can recall. The earliest memory of my love for bling is when I cut gemstones out from the Sears catalogue, glued them to a cardboard ring, and wore it with pride.
I began sketching for this collection in late spring of this year. Eight squares were laid out in my sketchbook and quickly became filled with ideas and visions of beauty.
With this collection I wanted to create fabric that made the wearer feel like they were wearing actual jewels. The colours, the cut, sparkle and bold feel was important to portray.
The first pattern, Jeweled Splendor, was the boldest and the second most intricate. I wanted a bright geometric feel, while still remaining delicate and feminine.
The second hero, Adorned is my favorite. The subtle facial outlines are the perfect contrast to the sharp, distinct features of the jewelry pieces.
Poly crepe de chine from Spoonflower, made the perfectly draped bow blouse.
Please check out my fabulous make, the satin Reversible Kimono Jacket!
The next two coordinates, Shapes and Quartz Gold Chains, are perfect for a pair of cropped pants, shorts or blouse.
The last four blenders are great on their own but are amazing as a lining or a coordinating piece to one of the hero prints.
Even though I share a lot of freebies and tutorials, I held back for years sharing my creations because I feared failure. Fearing failure is a sign that the inner critic is dominating.
As creatives, you and I can be held back due to negative thinking. It might look like comparing your ability to others or not having the confidence to pursue your creative talent or putting your creations out into the world.
Is that you? Have you ever found it difficult to cope with imposter syndrome, your inner critic, fear of failure, perfectionistic tendencies, and being hesitant to share your work?
If your answer is yes, I have a Free resource for you. It’s just a click away!
I envision these patterns will become luxurious bolts of fabric in chiffon, satin and poly crepe de chine. A cardigan, bold cropped pants, a stand out in a crowd blouse or flowy dress will add a touch of glamour to any outfit.
I hope you have enjoyed the journey with my Jewels Fabric Pattern collection. If you like what you see, please share the love with a comment or a pin.
Blessings from my house to yours,
