Get Your Glow On! with Amy Butler

 
 
We can't help but GLOW playing with these new fabrics from our dear friend, Amy Butler! Her inspiration well never seems to run dry and we just love seeing the latest from her creative mind each season! This collection is a modern interpretation of Japanese folk prints paired with Amy's signature style and colors!
 

 
She's in the process of creating some brand new sewing patterns and she'll be releasing some knits and voiles from this line in Ocotber! We can't wait!!
 
 
 
 She's also developed seven awesome projects with little to no sewing involved for her Blossom Creative Suite!
 

 
Whether you need some new handmade clothing...
 

 
...accessories...
 

 
...or home d├ęcor, there's a perfect project for your needs, time or skill level!
 
 
 
Amy, you've done it again!! :) AND she's holding a little Glow Inspiration Contest to see how this new collection is getting everyone's creative juices flowing!!
