Domestic Strata Rucksack in Tiger Lily by Heather Ross

Kristen of Two Blondes and a Sewing Machine has made this beautiful rucksack by Domestic Strata.

Here she is guest posting for us today!

Happy Friday y’all! Tiger Lily is officially on the shelves at your favorite fabric stores and wow it’s going FAST!!! Heather Ross hit it out of the park with this new line. The playfulness and bright colors are so much fun to work with.


I received some yardage of Tiger Lily after Spring Market and knew exactly what I wanted to make. Backpacks are the new “it” thing it seems like and at market I was introduced to a cool new paper/leather like product and I wanted to incorporate its natural color and texture with the colors and theme of Tiger Lily. The backpack is a perfect mix of whimsical, practical, and modern. Here it is!

I hope you love the rucksack as much as I do! Now go get some Tiger Lily before it’s all gone!

Two Blondes and a Sewing Machine’s Take on “Flora”

Kristen Wright of Two Blondes and a Sewing Machine couldn’t resist working with Kelly Ventura’s Flora cotton lawn. Here’s her take on the fabric and the lovely project she made with it.

“Flora” cotton lawn is like a dream come true. It is so soft against the skin and drapes really well. The second I saw the new line I just knew it was perfect for garment making. With the light colors and summer feel, the Wiksten Tank by Wiksten was the perfect garment to make. The fabric was amazing to work with! It has quickly become my favorite summer tank to wear.
