Andalucia goodies

I apologize for my bloggy absence. It's not like me to be gone from here for so many days, but I have a good excuse. I'm working on 3 different big projects that will soon be revealed and the deadlines were all around the same time... as a matter of fact, I am still working on 2 of them, due next week, so I'd better get back to it.

Anyway, first I wanted to thank everyone for your wonderful comments on Sophie's b-day party. It was a TON of work but so worth it! The girls had a blast and it gave me the push to finish and perfect the Lil' Chef sewing pattern (since I had to make 5 prototypes! LOL!)

So, since I can't really post any sneak peeks at this moment of what I'm working on (believe me, I'd love to, but it's just waaaay too soon!) I thought I'd post a few beauties that I've found online while browsing some of my favorite sites.

Get your Holiday shopping done!!!

These absolutely striking camera straps can be found at My Funky Camera. I actually gasped when I first came upon this picture truly by chance!

This adorable, and purely retro, apron can be found on Etsy at Boojiboo:

And another, totally different take on an apron, but just as fun is this one by boutiqueolliegirl:

Also on Etsy, I found this sweet little Bib & Burp set from Upsiedoodle:


This sweet girly skirt from kbellabambino:

And this decoupaged removable camera strap from PriddyCreations:
(Amy is offering $5.00 off these camera straps -- she's got more than 1 style -- if you mention you saw it here!)


There are just so many pretties out there, I'm just having a blast checking them all out. If you have anything made from Andalucia, please, please, please add your photo to my ANDALUCIA FLICKR GROUP so I can better find you! And thanks to all of you who have joined the group and added your photos so far... so much talent out there, I'm blown away!

OH, and if you would like to get yor hands on some Andalucia fabric and ribbon to make your own goodies, check out my updated link on my sidebar >>>>>>>>>>
(stores, let me know when you get them in so I can add your link too!)

OK, I'd better get back to work now! My goal is to finish all my project by end of next week so I can have a nice, quiet Christmas with my family... we'll see how all that goes! ;)


  1. Sophie's party looks like an absolute blast ans such awesome party favors! I ordered a custom camera strap cover from Priddycreations a few days ago! It is minkee and the Andalucia Petal fabrics! I had been eying camera strap covers and on a whime searched Andalucia and hers popped up! I can't wait to see your big reveal...

  2. I totally cannot type well with a 2 year old on my lap - I apologize for the typos!

  3. Thanks Patty for showcasing my removable decoupage camera strap! I am IN LOVE with your fabrics and have lots of ideas in store using your fabrics.

    Amber, I am just as excited as you are about your strap!! I may be making one for myself. :) I got my Andalucia fabric in and am itching to get started on your strap!

    Again Patty.....sooooo excited for you! You did a FABULOUS job with your debut line. Can't wait to see what you come up with next. :)


  4. All these projects are marvelous! It would be hard to pick a favorite. I LOVE the use of the bird fabric for the camera strap. It's the perfect match for that scale of image and it just makes it pop!

    Your new fabric collection is fab! I teach for a family-owned fabric store operation (3 locations) and I forwarded photos and recommendations for your line. Keeping my fingers crossed I can get my hands on some one of these days. :)

  8. Your products are so dang cute. I love that frilly half apron and I want it.

  9. Thanks for your comments, everyone!

    Amy & Amber... so glad you two hooked up and got some Andalucia goodies made up. Please share a picture when you have it! :)

    Janis, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you store gets the fabric! I'd love to see what you make/teach with it!

    Jaime, thank you so much, but for the record, none of these items were made by me. I just found them on Etsy or Flickr... but aren't they great?! :)


  10. I love all of these!
    I received some of your fabrics a couple of weeks ago. They are so beautiful Patty! Fantastic work my friend. :)

  11. Thanks for including my bib and burp cloth, Patty! I love all the other items too!

  12. HI Patty
