Violette field threads Fabric love featuring Hawthorne Threads

We've said it before and we'll say it again, we can't get enough of Hawthorne Threads Fabrics!!!  We already loved all the designer fabrics they carried, but their in house fabrics are so special!  

Anu fabric line from hawthorne threads

When I saw {Anu} it was love at first sight!  I am always looking for fabrics that "speak" to me.  Fabrics that tell me a story.  This line instantly caught my eye and was begging for me to sew up some VFT pretties!

Inspired by the Emerald Isles, Anu features a lovely take on the "tree of life" and the balance of nature and celestial elements.  From day to night, and grassy hills to mossy rocks, these fabrics will make you feel like you are one with nature.

I knew immediately that Georgia needed to be sewn in this amazing fabric.  It is a great pattern to use when wanting to show off multiple fabrics.  We thought, what better way to showcase our favorites than a tired skirt!

Georgia is shown featuring Galway Glade in Mystic, Irish Wooly in Agate, and Wee Triangles in Gold.  The colors compliment each other perfectly and transport us to a world full of lush pastures and sheep roaming hills.  The rich and vibrant colors are only one reason we love to sew with these fabrics.

Hawthorne Threads in house fabrics sew up beautifully and get softer and softer with each wash.  I really like the weight of these fabrics and the durability is like none other.

Pearl Pinafore VFT

I couldn't just stop at one, so how about a Pearl pinafore.  To get more {bang for my buck} we made this reversible, because you can never have too many options.  I am just loving Pearl in Daybreak Damask in Lake and Celtic Stripe in Mystic.

Pearl is such a versatile pattern, and made in these fabrics, it makes it even more lovely.  I love it paired over Georgia, but this would be super cute over other Violette Field Thread dresses, or even paired with skinnies and a long sleeve top too!

VFT Magnolia Apron

I really fell in love this Lucky Ewe in Agate.  The Magnolia Apron is so adorable and this fabric was beyond perfect for it!  I mean, a sheep apron?!?!?  AMAZING!!  Can't you just picture her walking the hills in Ireland along her flock!

And the reverse side, in A Moonlit Forest in Ink, is the perfect pairing.  I adore the adorable wildlife and nature in the moonlight.  

VFT Baby Georgia and Pearl

I couldn't help myself and had to make a coordinating sister set.  Baby sister is loving life in her first Violette Field Threads set!  The baby Georgia and Pearl are even more adorable in tiny sizes!

I was beside myself when I realized that I had more than enough fabric left over from the big sister's garments to make the newest member of our family some cute clothes!  I decided to keep hers simple and go with A Moonlit forest in Ink for the Georgia.

Her dress features the bodice, ruffles and skirt in all one fabric.  I adore this color.  It is so rich and looks even more gorgeous in person!

For the Baby Pearl, I decided to make this one sided since who knows how fast little miss may grow out of it.  I sewed this up in Celtic Stripe in Mystic. This fabric really is stunning to look at.
