I'll be a guest on Martha Stewarts Baby Shower Special, LIVE, Monday at 10:00 am, The Hallmark Channel

 

 

And would you believe that it's largely because of this post? Thats right. I told you Martha was a horsey girl.

I'll be making these little bloomers (one of my favorite projects from Weekend Sewing), plus unveiling a few new limited edition prints (image left) AND a few new fabric designs over at Spoonflower. Can you guess which ones? Tune in on Monday (to Martha and over here of course) for details.

The show will be a big baby shower of sorts, audience members (and in my case, guests) are mostly pregnant or accompanying the pregnant. Presenters and guests are also in mode proper, I was in the crafts room at the MS studios today and caught a glimpse of one of the COOLEST nursery decor crafts I think I've ever seen. I'm sure I'm not allowed to say any more but even if you have no plans to be anywhere near a baby in the near future. you have to SEE this thing.

These are a great little baby shower gift, especially when you make them in a big bunch. They go together super quick, and employ my favorite little easy-bake-oven sewing trick: elastic thread. Ashley from Film in The Fridge was the one who made this adorable little clothsline line-up for the folks at Martha, so they could pick the prints they wanted for the show. She's a rock star, that Ashley. Do I need to tell you which ones we are using? I think not. Like I said. Horsey Girl.

Martha is already set on my DVR. Can't wait to see it and especially can't wait for the new fabric line. When can we expect it?

Wish I had cable but I will be there in spirit or Internet. And hmmm, is that you thumbing your nose just a little bit at the horse freak out Internet episode. I'd love it if you were. :)

i must say, the girl in your horsey girl print does resemble martha!

So very cool! I'll have to set up the DVR for this one--not sure the boss would understand if I took the morning off to watch Martha!

Good Gravy those are fabulous! I never have the TV on during the day, but you can bet I'll be watching on Monday! I'm presently planning a baby shower so perfect timing! And THAT horse print is a must have. We ranch and lots of friends are expecting babies this year -7! I see lots of bloomers in my future! Where and when can I get that fabric?! I need a ton! LOL! Congratulations!

I came to your site today JUST to see if there was any more updates on the horse print --- I NEED some!!!! Aaahhhh!!!

February 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTanya B

I wish I got that channel! I wonder if I could get it for a day? I'm so happy that martha is a horsey girl, so many of us are ;) This post is so timely because I was just trying to figure out what to make for a shower - now I know!
Have fun!

My DVR and paycheck are all set! ^_-

I am so excited. I just heard about this and heard that you were pregnant. Congrats......on the baby, the new line and being on M.S.'s show. I am going to watch it, DVR it, and I am going to save my penny's to buy this line when it goes to Spoonflower. I am def going to buy at least 1 or 2 yards of each...Thanks for the wonderful fabrics you have been doing. My daughter loves everything that is made with your fabrics.

Sincerely your fan,

Shannon Margaret

Congratulations Heather! Lisa B and I will be watching a recorded version of the show and will rehash it with Joyce when she comes back from New York. You Tube, maybe?

Congratulations Heather! These new designs are wonderful.
Looking forward to being able to purchase some on Spoonflower. I love the flowery one on tangerine and the horsey print on brown and white so I'm hoping they will be available. Good luck with everything, especially the pregnancy.

February 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterClair

So stoked. Loved the sundress you made the first time around and can't wait to see the bloomers and new fabric and prints! Congrats!

February 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

...two of my favorites on one screen? In the same room? Yee Haw.

February 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNatalie

You were great, Heather. Adrianne kept saying "she showed me that in Palm Springs!" Looks like you showed Martha a new trick with the ironing of the elastic as a form of pre-shrinking. It's not often the guest teaches Martha something new.

My only complaint - it was such a short segment.

I'm looking for a YouTube video somewhere I can post on the fabric forum here for people who've missed the show.

March 1, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTom the DH

I watched the show and I loved your segment. I ordered some horsey girl fabric from Spoonflower and I can't wait to use it in the quilt I am making for my daughter's room.
What was the coolest nursery craft ever? I must have missed that segment and I am really curious!

March 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie

I am in love with the horsey girl print. Will this only be released through Spoonflower? Or later through Kokka with more coordinates? Just trying to plan how I want to use it :)

March 2, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeah

Thanks so much for sharing the bloomer pattern. It's so cute, and I can't wait to make several pairs. Can you tell me what size the pattern on Martha's site is? Several people asked in the comments there, but I couldn't find an answer. Thanks!
