With novel sewing supplies and busy scissors, the newest Rae Ritchie collection captures our deep love of sewing and making. Packed with unique hand-lettering, Made with Love includes customizable fabric labels to add that final touch to all your projects!
Rae shares the inspiration behind her Made With Love collection:
/// Sewing is really the thing that started my love of textiles and fashion. At about 15 years old I was obsessed with fashion and sewing my own clothes. Many hours were spent in the basement, dueling with my mom’s Elna sewing machine (which was passed down from her mother), making punk rock looking skirts and tops. I even bought some “made by” labels that I sent in for personalization. I believe they read “Made with Love for Baby by Rae”.
Later on, I went to UW-Stout to study fashion design & development – which was a spectacular program. There was LOTS of sewing to be had when I attended fashion design school, and I’m just now picking it back up!
I’m endlessly inspired seeing the things our customers make everyday out of the Dear Stella fabric line. I’m completely blown away by the skill and patience so many of you exhibit when making your lovely quilts, clothing and accessories. I hope you all are proud of your wares and mark them as yours with our new collection “Made with Love!” \\\
The motif in Stella-SRR677-Multi is 24″ in length and repeats twice across the width (44″).
Here are two patterns that feature Made With Love:
Whether it’s the focal fabric or the finishing touch, we can’t wait to see what you make with this new collection. Show us your Stella and tag us in your pictures, so we can see all your wonderful projects!
