SEW ARTSY is here!



Finally the suspense is over. We can now reveal the entire kit and you will be sew surprised at all the fun and sew artsy items incuded! The gallery of all the projects the DT created will be online in a day or two (technical issues and very slow uploading) but it will be sew fabulous! 

Here's the design board showing the contents of the kit. Can you believe all this fits in one box?


Lots of beautiful papers and new and vintage fabrics, trims, buttons, and embellishments galore.  There's such a variety in this kit - something for everyone!  There is always a surface of some kind included in each Front Porch Kit and Sew Artsy has a 10" embroidery hoop, which we lovingly named "Hattie Hoop." Just wait until you see all the creative and unique ways the DT used her!

Are you ready to see the projects I created?

This is a double layout, the full instructions for which are included on the printed "Blueprints" enclosed in the kit.  It's called "Blessed Beyond Measure" and showcases several photos of my daughter during her pregnancy and the focal photo features one-month-old baby Carl. 



This is a single layout. I came up with the title first - "You Keep Us In Stitches" - and then searched for some of the craziest photos I had of my son.  He is always cutting up and has done this since he was young, trying to get a rise out of his four sisters.  I wanted to show that layouts don't always have to use the perfect shots or photos of cute little girls or babies! The bright colors in this kit suited this theme well.



For my "mini" project, I decided to use the purple colorway papers, a color I don't normally use.  This is a chunky ATC and the base is an empty bath soap box.




Next is a fun canvas with lots and lots of layers. You can hardly see the sewing patterns and printed papers I started with.  And stay tuned, as this is going to be a class at the LBH!



And here's my Hattie Hoop. I made a sewing wreath, using the sewing pattern tissue in the kit to cover the hoop as well as create the flowers around it. Then I added lots of sewing items from the kit and made flowers from some of the fabrics.





I LOVED working with this kit! I have tons of products left, too, so I can keep creating more. 

Order your kit now, as I doubt these will last long. You can come by the LBH or call in your order at 817-431-7930.  Or order online on the website  here.  Kits are available for pickup TODAY at the LBH!  And I will let you know as soon as the gallery on the website is available to see all the fantastic projects.
