Elementz Blog Hop - Way Too Much Fun!!

by Joanne Hillestad on 02/28/18


by Tammy Silvers for Island Batik

Today, March 1st, 2018, is my day to post about Island Batik's newest collection by Tammy Silvers called Elementz!  The colors are so bright and happy! It makes a girl feel like Spring might actually make an appearance in Minnesota one day soon! Here is a sneak peek of my latest and greatest pop up pattern... Windsock! Look for it in quilt shops very, very soon!
I decided to give my embroidery machine a try doing applique on a Spool Wallet. I love chickens and these are perfect in the bright colors in the Elementz design.  

Embroidery Design is available here:

Funky Chickens
Next up is a fun Basket Pop Up I made using the Braid Template by Seam Like a Dream. All you need to do is make a braid following the instructions with the template a little larger than the side piece's dimension.  Then apply stabilizer and trim down to size.  Sew Cute!!
Don't be afraid to add a personal touch! I added this lucky little girl's name to the handle of this Medium Basket Pop Up

How?  I embroidered Rebecca on a wider piece and cut the handle piece out centering the name. You could applique or use fabric markers too!
My last piece of inspiration using Elementz is a Fat Quarter Pop Up with a fun Sewing Saying from Designs by JuJu I think this thread catcher says exactly what I feel on most weekends!
This ends all the fun I had playing with Tammy Silver's new collection Elementz for Island Batik!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'm loving the Elementz collection and using it to make a windsock, wallet and basket gives me so much inspiration! I'd love to sew with it.
