.TWO New Patterns for Market!.

I'm leaving for Quilt Market in 1 sleep and have a couple of new patterns ready to share! 

First up - let me introduce you to 
Our skin needs protection from the harsh sun, and Sun Kissed Hats will cheerfully meet the challenge!
Sun Kissed Hats have a wide, floppy brim, ensuring excellent coverage and peace of mind.

With large, adjustable back tabs you will be guaranteed the perfect, snug fit and a handy opening to pull a ponytail through.
The reversible design of Sun Kissed Hats allows you to mix and match colours and patterns to suit any style this Summer!
Sun Kissed Hat are suitable for both boys and girls and are sized to fit infants through to adults.

My second new release pattern is a gorgeous little girl's skirt with lots of personality....
The Milkshake Skirt is a chic skirt with unlimited twirling capability.  
The deep box pleats allow you to play with fun colour combinations, giving the Milkshake Skirt loads of bounce and zest!
Featuring a flat-fronted, elastic-backed adjustable waistband, the Milkshake Skirt is both stylish and comfortable, ticking all the boxes!
I'm really excited about these two new editions to the Make It Perfect range.  They are just in time for some quick Summer sewing - I know my kids are in need of a few new hats (where do hats go anyway?  I'm sure they end up in the same place as those missing socks...) and I know that you will love the adjustable tabs at the back of the Sun Kissed Hats.  The great thing about the tabs is that you can tighten them to help the hat stay on securely - always helpful with kids!
I've had a lot of fun playing with different fabric combinations for the Milkshake Skirt also.  This skirt is really cute and be given a more classic look with the use of a plain fabric on the exterior panels (I've used a lightweight denim here) or you can go to town using two of your favourite printed fabrics for a little more pizazz!  (I'll share some other versions I've sewn of each of the patterns with you next week.) 
My talented friend Chelsea captured these gorgeous pictures for me (and was a legend for fitting me in between her busy wedding time schedule!) and the cute model is the daughter of a good friend of mine who I don't get to see nearly enough - thanks Liv and Nik!  Isn't she the sweetest??
You'll find more information about each of these patterns, Sun Kissed Hat and the Milkshake Skirt on the Make It Perfect website.  If you are looking for a place to purchase a copy of the pattern for yourself, take a look at our stockists or ask your favourite store to order one in for you. 

If you would like to win a copy of both of these patterns, leave a comment on this blog post.  Two lucky commenters will win themselves a copy of BOTH patterns!
(Please make sure you leave an email address with your comment.  Giveaway will close Tuesday 29th November and winner will be drawn at random).

Hi Toni

I have just made your Wonderland dress for my niece for Christmas and just LOVE the easy instructions of your patterns. A friend has just asked me about hats for her girls and wanted the ponytail feature so this would be the perfect pattern (which I'd love to win).

Love your work, keep it up
