My Sugar Rush Fabric Collection with Blend Fabrics!

I'm so excited to share with you today my Sugar Rush fabric collection with Blend Fabrics! From a gingerbread house scene, to frosted cookies and vintage candies to cupcakes and cups of cocoa, this sweet collection is surely wonderful for a variety of holiday projects! Sugar Rush launched in June and contains 7 prints in 2 colorways each, for a total of 14 prints in the collection. This collection has been a huge hit and I wanted to share it with you today (finally!)!

For Sugar Rush I was really inspired by all the wonderful and creative baking that goes on around Christmas and wanted to sew up some kitchen items for this shoot to represent those magical memories.

Each time I do a photo shoot, it definitely takes a village. I used to do it all by myself, but let me tell you - it ended up in a lot of stress and sucked the fun out of the process. These days I enlist the help of some wonderful sewers and friends to help it all come together, which turns my vision into something really wonderful when lots of people with different talents come together to work on making something together. Below I'll share the projects we created as well as the amazing people who helped make my vision a reality. {Thank you ladies!!!}

First off, my lovely sister-in-law and super-cute niece modeled these holiday photos – and she even made adorable matching cookies for us! Christmas + kids decorating sugar cookies = a fun Christmas!

First up on the project list is this lovely apron sewing pattern from Jamie Christina. I love that this sewing pattern has a variety of sizes for a mother and daughter - perfect for baking together during the holidays!

These aprons were sewn for me by Susan of Knesting.com and Danielle of LiveLaughSew on Etsy. We added a separate center panel into the skirt area for maximum pattern mixing.

How about these ADORABLE cupcake oven mitts! Danielle from LiveLaughSew on Etsy sewed-up these lovelies for me. And of course I couldn't live with a matching set and had to have each different and...coordinate! This is a very easy project that would be a wonderful addition to a kitchen to spice it up for the holidays!

Next up are these fabric trays from Indygo Junction, sewn by my wonderful friend Brittany, which are such a simple way to make your display of Christmas goodies festive!
