Pezzy Print Goodness : :

I am completely in love with this cheerful bundle of Pezzy Prints! They're like a new box of crayons -- so perfect and bright! They arrived earlier this week from Cotton Blossom Farm (where they're on sale!) and they've been making me happy ever since!

Right away I knew I was going to have some fun with these! I'm a little late in stashing. I know these pezzy's have been around a while, and are even a little hard to find now. And, I'm definitely a bit disappointed that I missed out on the green and gray! But look how pretty they are!!

These Pezzy's make such a great basic and seem like the perfect thing to have in your stash. They're very usable with SO many other prints! Even so, I just don't want to split them up!

Yes, I think the Pezzy projects that I have planned will involve these Pezzy's staying together!

Thread Tie for Drawstring
I'll have a new tutorial to share tomorrow for a simple drawstring skirt, as part of Skirting the Issue with Project Run and Play, and I'm super excited!!

If you've been wanting to give garment sewing a try or if you're a beginner, I really think this is a good first project! I'm just starting out myself, so it had to be easy, right? I hope you join me!!  Maureen

  6. How exciting! I AM wanting to try some garment sewing. I have a layer cake of the Pezzy print that I've been wondering what to do with. Maybe I can adapt it to what you're going to share. Thanks!

  8. LOVE PEZZY!!! Sewn Studio in Cincinnati had a bunch in when I was there yesterday but I'm not sure about green and grey. They're going to be setting up an online shop too, so you should look there! :)
