Flutterby Kite – Reach for the Sky + One Thimble Magazine Issue 12

Flutterby Kite – Reach for the Sky + One Thimble Magazine Issue 12

Sharing is caring!

OMG, I am totally gushing over this seriously cute Flutterby Kite pattern from Molly and Mama for One Thimble Issue 12.  I mean fur reals!  A quilted kite up on my kiddos wall!  What?!!!  Anyways, it is totally love.

If you don’t know what One Thimble is, it is a totally cool digital e-zine that has exclusive patterns that come out in each edition.  And I am seriously crushing over the patterns in volume 12.  There are some gorgeous dresses and tops.  And even a beautiful woman’s skirt that I totally want to make.kite-quilt-pattern-flutterby-kite-pattern-coral-and-co-molly-and-mama

If you’ve been following along on Instagram you have seen that I have been (slowly) working on a quilt for my daughter’s bed.  I used some of my favorite fabric from my stash, Tasha Noel’s The Simple Life jelly rolls.  This collection is all sold out, but you can find her current one here  I had some mostly white strips left over from the quilt, so I thought it would be really cute to have a coordinating look on the wall.  Its kind of a low volume look, but I think the red trim really makes it POP, especially against the minty walls!kite-quilt-pattern-flutterby-kite-pattern-coral-and-co-molly-and-mama

 

The pattern originally called for narrower strips, but I had slightly larger jelly roll strips and I didn’t want to lose the illustrated scenes so I just went them the the size that they were.kite-quilt-pattern-flutterby-kite-pattern-coral-and-co-molly-and-mama

 

I also added some cute hoop art to the wall with this whimsical embroidery pattern from Tamir Nahir.  She has beautiful patterns in her shop.   I can’t decide which ones I like the best so I think I will be adding a few more to the wall.kite-quilt-pattern-flutterby-kite-pattern-coral-and-co-molly-and-mama

 

And the trim!  Oh my goodness I am totally CRAZY over the cute little pinwheels, which totally look like they were made for this fabric!  I got them from Vintage Door on etsy and seriously want Every. Single. One. in their shop.  The picot edge just makes me deliriously happy.  I mean who doesn’t want to wrap themselves in crochet edge bias binding, amiright?!kite-quilt-pattern-flutterby-kite-pattern-coral-and-co-molly-and-mama

 

I made a bow at the end of the kite with some vintage lace that I had in my stash that I previously used on there shorts.

I made gold tulle pom pom garland used clear invisible thread to string them together.

I really like the texture that the crosshatching added so I decided to go with that look as opposed to stitching in the ditch because of the mostly white fabric.

And if you have a chance check out Molly and Mama, these are simply some of the sweetest sewing patterns I have seen.  You can find the Flutteryby Kite Pattern in her etsy shop.

The Flutterby Kite pattern added the option of adding a ribbon or hanging pocket to the top but  I wanted to hand the kite on an angle to add interest, so I added a ribbon on the side.

And the ribbon and ric-rack trim!  It definitely adds a fun dimension.    And our new kitten thinks that I hung up a new toy just for him!
