Hello Blog Hop

by Joanne Hillestad on 07/17/17


Let's have a chat about a terrific fabric line by Susan Emory for Michael Miller Fabrics... Hello.

The collection is so much fun!  The retro phone prints are my favorite!

Here are some of the other prints I love:

There are also ransom letters that you can use on all sorts of fun projects! 

I had a blast creating with Hello...

The first thing I made was a small project bag from my pattern Bag It Up.  How cute is that?  Super cute!

I just love the polka dots and hashtag prints! This is a mini version of my Wingman pop up pattern. The base has a great pincushion and spool loops to hold my thread while I  stitch on those bindings!

The Wingman pop up also has a small version (size is based on the spring size used). The small version is terrific sitting next to your machine! It also has a pincushion base, pockets and spool loops for your thread!

The last project I made is a medium stacking pop up with ransom letters on it... I can't reveal exactly what this one says... so I'll just tease you will half of the letters.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to see all the fun I had with Susan's Hello collection!

Time for a giveaway!

The Hello bundle is adorable and you look like you enjoyed every stitch in using it! I would use the ransom letters to put a name on the cuff of a hand-made pillowcase. I know my nephews and nieces would love it! duchick at gmail dot com

I'm making a "colors" book for my nephew, and might spell out the names of the colors (depending on the colors of the letters...) or I might use the letters to add names to pillowcases, which always makes them "extra-special".
