Waverize It!


I'm delighted to take part in "Waverize It!" a fabric challenge for bloggers sponsored by Waverly Fabrics and Jo-Ann Fabrics and Craft Stores. This challenge is in celebration of National Sewing Month in September and Waverly's 90th Anniversary! Participating bloggers were challenged to think outside the box and transform something in their lives through sewing, using Waverly fabrics. I love me a challenge...

Waverly's beautiful "Button Blooms Confetti" was the inspiration for my project. Its bold, vibrant colors reminded me of a meadow of wildflowers...


... so, I decided to plant a child's play tent in that meadow of flowers and let those blossoms climb up the sides of the tent!


Wonder-Under (a double-sided paper-backed fusible web) was used to adhere the "Button Blooms Confetti" fabric to the chevron print.


I pressed a long strip of Wonder-Under to the Waverly Fabric, then used scissors to cut around the flowers. The paper on the back of the fusible web was removed and the flowery fabric was positioned and ironed onto the right side of the chevron print.


I had a little fabric left over, so I made a coordinating pillow. I imagine this tent will be used for quiet times and for noisy play times!


I love how the bold, vibrant flowers in this Waverly fabric look like they are growing up the sides of the tent...


This Waverize It! blogger contest has been fun for me to participate in, but here's the good news. In September Jo-Ann and Waverly are hosting a


open to all consumers. This contest helps celebrate National Sewing Month in September and Waverley's 90th Anniversary! The grand prize for the Facebook contest is $1000 in Waverly fabric and a $250 Jo-Ann gift card! Start dreaming how you can Waverize something in your life.

I've been seeing all the cute tutorials for play tents on Pinterest and debated between them and a teepee. I went for a teepee but I love your colorful tent too! Such fun for kids to let their imaginations soar.

I LOVE IT! The yellow chevron goes perfectly with the floral. You did a wonderful job. I like the pillow too. I noticed that you threw a little chevron in it also. :)
