Gnomes in Love Fabric Project | Girl’s Dresses

Gnomes in Love Fabric Project | Girl’s Dresses

Wear your heart on your sleeve Dress!

One thing I love about being a fabric designer is seeing how other people use the fabrics with my art on them.

My brain goes to quilts, crafting and home decor… what a treat to see these adorable girl’s dresses made by the very talented Suze Vinton!

These dresses feature my Gnomes in Love fabric from Riley Blake Designs.

She mixed and matched red prints with white to make two eye-catching dresses for Valentine’s Day or any day that love is in fashion. (HINT: That’s ANY DAY – at least in my opinion!)

Be sure to follow Suze on Instagram @beralusvintondesign for more amazing sewing inspiration.

Gnomes in Love Fabric Project | Microwave Bowl Cozies

Gnomes in Love Fabric Project | Microwave Bowl Cozies

If food is love…

… then it should be served in love-themed microwave bowl cozies!

Microwave Bowl Cozies featuring Gnomes in Love Fabric by Tara Reed

Microwave bowl holders (or cozies – whichever world you prefer) are favorites in my house.  We use them every time we use the microwave since they serve as a built in potholder that we then keep around the bowl if we eat anywhere but at the table.

The cozy protects our hands from the heat and they are so cute!  I will admit we now have a stash of them for all the seasons. ❄️🌼☀️🍁

No more awkwardly trying to grab a bowl with traditional pot holders only to dip them in your food or worse yet – have the bowl slip and fall. Simply grab the opposite corners of the bowl cozy and lift out.

Love ice cream but hate the feel of a cold bowl on your fingers? These are great for that too!

It’s no wonder my Free Microwave Bowl Cozy Pattern and video tutorial is my most popular post on my blog and YouTube channel.

If you make this pattern I’d love to see it and hear how you used it!

Gnomes in Love Fabric – Sneak Peek!

Gnomes in Love Fabric – Sneak Peek!

Gnomes in Love Fabric coming in November 2021

Valentine's Day girl gnome throwing confetti by Tara Reed

While gnomes have been gracing gardens for years the nordic gnomes with ample beards, round noses and no faces have become the hot new decorating trend.  Traditionally associated with Christmas they are now making us smile all year long! (These gnomes are basically the Scandinavian version of Santa & visit the homes of children on Christmas Eve.)

Gnomes have become one of my favorite art subjects when I want to do something bright and joyful. 

As I painted the hearts that would wrap around one gnome and be tossed in the air by another like confetti I had a big smile on my face. I’m excited to share the Gnomes in Love with you and hope they bring joy and love to all of your sewing and quilting projects!

“Gnomes in Love” will include 12 prints and a panel with an apron and 2 potholder designs!

Watch the video to see a preview of the prints.

I hope you enjoyed this preview of the Gnomes in Love fabrics coming to stores in November 2021! I’m excited to see what you create!
