I was so honored when Carrie asked me to sew with her new collection, PAINT (by SUCH Designs). not only did I get to sew with some really great fabrics, but I got to sew two of my very own patterns for Carrie herself. it does not get any better than that!!
here’s a view of the full PAINT collection. I can see so many amazing things made with these prints.
shown at the top of this post is a color-blocked bess top shirt (pattern available here in the imagine gnats shop). below is the alder skirt, a new pattern that will be ready for testing soon!! i’m so excited about this skirt, and it will be available in both women’s sizes 2-20 and girl’s sizes 5-14.

The PAINT collection celebrates creativity and expression. As a creativity enabler, Carrie intends to help you Celebrate your inner artist™! The collection includes bold, playful prints inspired by a painter’s tools. Color wheels, paint swatches, paint brushes and other collaged images create an artful pastiche of sewing possibility. Carrie loves to make something from nothing. She showcases up-cycling and recycling by creating her imagery from brown paper bags, paint swatches and colorful newsprint. PAINT tells the truly inspiring story of stepping into a creative life. Additionally, we are pleased to rerelease her wildly popular Newsprint in three color ways.
