Dream Big

In addition to being supermom, my sister Allyn is also a great seamstress.  She designs and makes the most amazing bags, including my adorable owl diaper bag.  People compliment me on this bag every day.  (On days when I don't leave the house, I make Jeff compliment me on it.)  When her family came to visit, she brought these adorable headbands for Chloe and me.

So when I asked Allyn what she wanted to do while she was in St. Louis her first response was "Meet Laura Gunn.  I promise I won't be weird!"  Laura Gunn is my friend that designs fabric for Michael Miller.  That's right, Sewing Nerds, my friend designs fabric.  Jealous much? 

Laura was kind enough to show Allyn around her studio, talk about her design process, give her a sneak peek at her new fabric line, and send her home with some fabric.  BAM! 

DREAM COME TRUE!

Laura has a great blog called Paint in My Hair. Check it out.  If you want to take a look at her beautiful fabric, click HERE.

I can tell from the photos that Allyn WAS weird meeting Laura Gunn. HAHAHAHAHA! I love the leaves on your headbands - of course she came up with that AFTER she made mine. Nuts.
