Tula Pink Squirrel Sunset and Simplicity 6022

I made myself a new top for the Staystitching opening party using Tula Pink Squirrel print from the birds and the bees collection in Sunset from and simplicity pattern 6022. I am soo pleased with it, perfect fit and I managed to get the pattern lined up just right, so the Squirrels face each other in the centre of the front and have their backs to each other on the centre of the back, also a squirrel on each sleeve. I cut the back as one piece to make the most of the print so it was very each to sew taking about 3 hours in total and used just1 metre of fabric.

The fabric moved to its new home in one of the other rooms in Pride & Joy's old bakery today, making room to have an even bigger range of fabrics in the shop.

I didn't do to well with getting a picture of the back of my top, I had a busy day organising fabrics into their respective designers, Tula Pink fabrics rightfully take up two full shelves.


  1. Cute top!! Is this your store?!?

  2. WOW! I'm so happy for you and your success with the fabric shop. I really like you're new top and YOU are very pretty too! Go Katy!!
