Share your Projects with Pat Bravo!

Hello lovelies,

I find it fascinating seeing what you guys create with my fabrics. As some of you  may know, I have a Flickr group which I constantly check to admire your wonderful projects! Another way of sharing your projects is through Instagram, using #PatBravo. I am regularly on Instagram and its always an enchanting surprise running into some of your projects created with my designs! Can we please take a moment and admire Katarina Roccella's stunning Rock 'n Romance project modeled by this angel!

I feel so happy and lucky to see your creations, it really makes my day. I see my fabrics come to life when I see a quilt, table runner or a cute dress for a little girl created with my fabrics designs, like this beauty below! Just pure sweetness!

Or cutie Caroline Hulse from SewCaroline sporting a sleeveless blouse from Rapture! With Bonbons Cerise fabric to be exact :)

Please continue creating wonderful and innovative projects and share it to my Flick group or Instagram using #PatBravo. I feel very happy to see that you lovelies use my fabrics to create superb projects. Keep up the good work and happy sewing!

Strike Offs from Etno are finally here!

Hello Lovelies, 

I am super, super happy! I want to formally welcome my Etno strike offs :) Really? Pinch me!! It seemed ages since I wasn't having the excitement of introducing a fabric collection! Believe it or not, and after having designed more than 30 lines for AGF, I still feel these butterflies in my stomach when I'm about to share with you my new work! 

I am so thrilled to finally see my designs come to life --even if they only are little pieces for now... This last step marks the long wait until January 2015, when Etno finally is going to hit stores. 

Talking design, this is a bit of a departure from my floral lines --even though it has many beautiful flowers!! You may find it a bit different from my former collections; I think that as a designer, I need to evolve and bring new designs and color stories that make me fall in love when seeing new trends.

Even though they are just a sample of what’s to come, I am completely satisfied with the results. They colors are so vivid, just how I imagined it, and I didn't even start on the knits! Just stunning.

I'm in love with the ethnic vibe right now. It's very versatile, perfect for quilting but many of the prints are great for garments too! 

The 2 new color stories I've worked with are to die for! I can't wait to start sewing with these beauties!

Hope you can welcome Etno to your stash! 
And... stay tuned for many projects and tutorials I'll be sharing with you here. I'll also talk more in detail about details in color and designs :) Can it be January already??

xo, Pat
