Fabric Love: {Heart Melodies} from Art Gallery Fabrics + Giveaway

Fabric love featuring VFT and Art Gallery Fabrics

I am the type of person that has always been surrounded by music.  Growing up with a music obsessed Father, my childhood memories are entangled with the sights and sounds of music.  Album covers, concerts, living room dance parties, family bbq's, and my Dad's dj'ing events.  Every single memory has a song to go with it that pulls at my heart, bringing me back to those exact moments in time.

Art Gallery Heart Melodies

When I laid my eyes on Heart Melodies from Art Gallery Fabrics it was instant love.  The colors and prints spoke to me, bringing me back to my childhood memories and everything I love about music.

June day 5

Today is our final sewing day.  I can't wait to see all of the gorgeous dresses, but at the same time, we've had so much fun, I'm sad to see it end.  I guess we will just have to do another one soon!!  Let's head over to our machines and get started!

Yesterday we left off after attaching our pockets to the side panels.  Grab both panels and the front skirt piece.  Lay your panels on top of your front center piece, right sides touching.  You panels will be at both raw edges of the front center piece.

Today is day 4, sewing friends.  Time is flying by and after today, we only have one more day of sewing.  Does it make you as sad as it makes me???  We have no time for tears though, because we need to get sewing, so turn on some tunes, put on some mindless tv, and let's get started!
