Lugu Fabrics Blog Tour

LuguFabrics-blog-tour-graphic2

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Lugu fabrics, Jessica Swift‘s latest fabric line for Art Gallery Fabrics. I have enjoyed each of Jessica’s fabric lines and Lugu is no exception. The lighter color way is whimsical and fun, and the darker color way is deep and moving. All of these fabrics are wonderfully suitable for items made for kids, which is the focus of the Lugu blog tour.

I decided to make a doll sleeping bag and baby doll carrier.  There is a doll that is set to join the family of items later today, but for now, we have her accessories. I’ll update the post to include her when she’s ready for her big debut.

The sleeping bag pattern is a tutorial from the blog See Kate Sew.  I chose Tekstiil Emberglow and Lumina Dusk for this item.  The deep orange color and delicate print made Tekstiil Emberglow perfect for the exterior.  The teal, yellow, and pink in Lumina Dusk made it a great contrast fabric for the lining.  I was so happy I could include the selvedge as part of the strap.  Details like that add so much to a project.

 

I know my four year old son, and his 5 and 7 year old sisters will love putting their dollies to bed in this little sleeping bag. And it even has a pillow for more comfortable doll slumber.

If mobile doll fun is what your kid needs, then this simple doll carrier pattern by Nicole Bennett is just the thing. I used Sova Dayglo to make this carrier, and I had so much fun with it.  The colors in this fabric are deep and rich, with beautiful pink, mustard, and orange accents. The owls in the print were perfect for fussy cutting the main panel of the carrier. My son had lots of fun jumping around the yard with his doll in tow, and even stopped for a few kisses on the forehead (when prompted by me to do so, I’ll admit. 😉 )

    my kid already has a doll carrier, but this tempts me to sell that one and make her something more fun! I should definitely make her dolls some sleeping bags. I know they’d get lots of use!
