Magic is the dreamy new fabric range from Michael Miller. Designed by Sarah Jane, it is a beautiful mythological collection starring unicorns.
Sarah Jane has made the collection up of two border prints, five feature prints and three complimentary coordinating designs. Featuring a stunning mix of pinks, blues and greys with a hint of gold; it’s perfect for a wide range of pretty sewing projects including little girls dresses, home furnishings and fabulous accessories.
This collection caught our eye as it brings back childhood memories of fantasy lands where anything is possible, such as owning a unicorn! It also features cute quotation motifs such as ‘I love you to the stars’ on the You are Magic fabric. These motifs are perfect for adding a focus point to an item such as a pocket or pillow.
We would like to give you a bit sewing inspiration for some of the fabrics we have in store. These have come directly from the Magic Look Book which is incredibly sweet.
The Lauren Dress is a posh babydoll sundress that is all about the details. You can create the dress with a babydoll style bodice that can be sewn as a simple quick bodice. The back bodice features elastic so you can achieve the perfect fit every time. There are no worries about the shoulder straps slipping down due to the criss-cross back.
The Lauren skirt has even more options! You can make the dress simpler with one layer or the skirt can be pin-tucked for more detail. The Lauren skirt can also be made extra special, with two layers and a full peek-a-boo ruffle bottom.
Lindsay Wilkes’s created the The Georgia Vintage Dress taking inspiration from a dress worn by her mother in the late 1950’s. It is a dress with many possibilities and options, yet has timeless classic appeal. Made with double layers for extra fullness in the skirt, it also has a waist sash that is gathered on the sides for a large bow tied in the back of the dress. The dress closes with buttons on the bodice back. There are so many ways to use this pattern and you will have many opportunities to make it your own, you could add a piped bib front bodice finished with decorative buttons or have just one layer of the skirt for a simpler look .
Created in the classic boy’s short sleeved shirt style by Oliver & S, this playful design is perfect for your little Prince. It uses the Castle Plans fabric, which is reminiscent of Color Me, also by Michael Miller.
The pattern also includes a pattern for some shorts, shown in the image to the right. We recommend making these with the Baby Dragon fabric.
Included in the lookbook is a lush patchwork star pillow. They have made it using the You Are Magic and Lucky Stars fabric. We have a very similar pattern on the blog for FREE so all you need is the fabric.
The flickering star patchwork pillow pattern is by Tacha Bruecher. It uses modern fabrics to bring a classic quilt block bang up to date. The contrasting colours from bright to light give the flickering illusion to this fabulous patchwork project.
This project would be perfect to add the finishing touches to a little girls bedroom. She will be able to go to bed dreaming of magical lands with mermaids and unicorns, what could be better?!
