I attended a "trunk show" for 2 sister designers at a favorite local quilt and fabric shop on Saturday, Piece by Piece. Barbara and Ann graciously allowed me to take some pictures, inadequate though they are, so that you can become acquainted, too! Their patterns are reasonably priced, creative, and perfect for gifts!
Meet Barbara Brunson whose whimsical and delightful patterns will help to make your environment sparkle!
She's been designing for 20 years!! I think it's time you checked out her blog: vanillahousetoday.blogspot.com , and her website: VanillaHouseDesigns.com. (Click on the titles.)
|Barbara modeling one of her apron designs.|
Her dynamic display included: aprons (women, men, children--for every task, not just cooking!), cooking mitts, Christmas stockings, doll clothes, soft sculptures (useful in the sewing room!), table runners, portable ironing boards, bibs, pocket hanger, SATCHELS, home dec, and so much more!

|Notice her sample dresses featured with her patterns.|
|I'm partial to the new Michael Miller chicken fabric |
used in this "Classy Cargo" pattern (#OAD84)!
|"Easy Peazy Pleats" pattern (#OAD83)|
What inspired her to pursue this endeavor two years ago? It's a common refrain: she wanted to make cute clothes for her granddaughters, and the patterns available didn't fit! That's always disappointing! You're in for a treat when you go to OliveAnnDesigns.com (click on it) and see what she's got for you: dresses, tops, shorts, doll clothes, slings, duvet covers, crib comforters & rugs, changing mats, burp cloths, leggings, nursing shawls, baby hats, diaper covers, adult & child totes, and offers custom orders!
Check out her patterns with the giraffe appliques--very cute!! Yeah Ann!
Let me know what you think, & thanks for stopping by!
