Check her out--you're going to want to be friends with this girl (if you can stand the "sometimes" A-type personality and her urge to organize the death out of everything)! No really, she's a good one.

Now that you love her as much as we do, here's her amazing giveaway. V has this adorable Aviary by 3 Sisters for Moda "honey bun" for one of our lucky readers! Not sure what to do with these little strips of fabric? Check out V's tutorial for this darling baby blanket using a honey bun.

The holly girly bag is my favorite. It just puts summer to mind by looking at it.

Atticelf said...

Beautiful fabrics! I think I drooled a little when I saw her pillow - great stuff!

lambie-pie said...

I love everything in her shop! I've already bought a couple of her patterns. I really like her pillows and table runners, and the little bags are adorable. She has made some darling little girl dresses too. To tell you the truth, there are a couple of things I didn't buy from her shop that I wanted, and then was kicking myself when they were gone!

Um, I love everything Vanessa has, but if I HAD to pick one thing...it would be her fabric bracelet tutorial.
