“Want to play with Sweet Orchard?”

My stop on Sweet Orchard Blog Tour has all started with this one line.



I have tasted Sedef  ‘s first collection Sweet Orchard   last spring for her  Spring Quilt market booth.

Oh, how sweet they were! I wished I had more!!

She let me taste only a bite of each piece and I had to be very careful not to waste a bit.

I was like a six year girl browsing at See’s Candy shop and you know they offer you only a piece of chocolate for free and you have to be with your mama for more. I had to be good and patient until Sedef came to me and asked,


“Want to play with Sweet Orchard?”

Oh yes, please!! (many dancing emojis here please)

Who wouldn’t want a basket full of treats instead of a bit? 🙂

I have enjoyed all 21 fabrics laying on my fabric shelf and secretly loved her clever cheater print a little more.

I hope we all keep that secret; shhh….please do not bring that word, cheater prints. 😉

The typewriter illustration is from the book, Sew illustrated .

My Korean blog friend sent me a handmade charm while I was making this bag.

What a perfect match!

My second make is a lunch bag that I twisted a little bit with my Drawstring bag from my book as well.

I think  Sedef’s Sweet Orchard , the book  Sew Illustrated and my Claire bear will live happily after. 🙂

      Hi, Elise,
      Thank you and you just read my mind!
      I tried to show may ways to adapt the original designs to the reader’s own style. That’s the fun way of sewing. 🙂

  3. I love all the things you have made, such gorgeous fabric and your amazing skills ✂So well done.
    The lunch bag is my favourite, the mix of the linen and print finished beautifully with your little sewillistrated details.
