Tanya Whelan Sadie’s Dance Card | Fabric Crush

tanya-whelan-sadies-dance-cardTanya Whelan is back doing what she does best with another fabulous fabric range, Sadie’s Dance Card. Her signature style resonates through this fabric range and that is why we have a huge crush on it.

Sadie’s Dance Card has that well loved shabby chic feel to it. It is full of big bold florals with 40’s style over-sized polka dots and stripes. All the patterns on the fabric are set against bright vivid colours such as striking blues, beautiful Jade’s and clean whites.

This collection is perfect for dresses, quilts and home furnishings and we want to give you a bit of inspiration for what to make with this stunning range. stella-apron

Stella Apron

Tanya has said that the Stella apron will make you feel cute while making a pie. She isn’t wrong! Made using Rose Bouquet Carnation on Blue with a contrasting pink trim is it super stylish. It will make you want to bake just so you can wear it.

If a full-length apron isn’t your style, don’t panic! The PDF pattern also comes with a half apron skirt as well as different pocket options. Any of the Sadie’s Dance Card fabrics would suit this pattern, the large scale florals are perfect for this sort of design.

If you want to incorporate more of the fabric, because you simply can’t choose between them all, we have a FREE apron pattern, which will allow you to use four of Tanya Whelan fabrics. This apron is really simple to make and you only need four fat quarters to make it. It would really suit the Dot or Stripe fabric in the range.






Tied Shoulder Bag

How beautiful is this bag? It is so striking, the Rose Bouquet Carnation on pink really stands out. The added bonus to the pattern is that it is reversible. The fabric on the inside of this bag is called Dots on green, which is from the Delilah range.

Tanya has provided four different bag patterns in this PDF. Additionally, each bag can be made as either a shoulder bag or a messenger bag, so it really does suit everyone.

Parasole Dance Quilt

It’s bright, bold and blue and we adore it. The Parasole quilt features the blue colour way from the Sadie’s Dance Card collection. Due to the contrast between the bolder blues and the white fabric the pattern gives a 3D parasol effect like they are dancing around in a light summers day.

Traditional pinwheel blocks look as soft as a spring breeze in this blue and white floral quilt – perfect as a decorative accent for a porch swing or rocking chair. You can download the pattern for FREE here.
