WEE WANDER BLOG TOUR: X-Large Floor Pillows

wee wander blog tour logo blog PILLOW TUTORIAL

IMG_0682-1-2Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I’ve got a wonderful new tutorial for you on how to use the Wee Wander Fabric. 

Two FREE TUTORIALS for x-large floor pillows. One round, and the other square.


Since Wee Wander has some pieces with lovely “landscapes” I knew I wanted to create something that showed off the tapestry of illustrations so children could get the full effect

These pillows are big! Think Doggy Pillows. We originally designed them to fit perfectly underneath a child’s Tee Pee. We purchased custom Teepee’s from Tnee’s Tpee’s for our Quilt Market Booth.

IMG_9059-1 IMG_9048-1 Anders was only 2 months old, and no strollers or carseats were allowed on the Tradeshow floor. Only Babies in arms. I knew I couldn’t hold him for 8 hours straight, 3 days in a row, so we designed the booth to have these awesome pillows in the Tee Pees so he could sleep in them. Most people thought he was a prop! It was pretty adorable:) And my arms were super happy too! And now I have these awesome pillows for the bigger kids to snuggle on. I love them! 

Carissa at Carissa Miss designed the pillows: two pieces of Wee Wander for the pillow and the piping, 1 piece of coordinating Michael Miller Cotton Couture Solid fabric for the sides, and a hidden zipper along the bottom edge. You’ll love these!

Thanks Carissa for such a great project!

Happy sewing!

Message to the Mamas.

NOTE TO SELF Dirty dishes web


So, I hit rock bottom the other day, and I needed to illustrate it. Can you relate?

I’m trying some new art. And I want to know what you think. Could you use some art for YOU? I think you’ve earned it.

I’m constantly making art for these awesome kids of ours. But sometimes us Mama’s (rockstar Mama’s at that!) need some inspiration too.

Prettier Dishes. Forget about the tidy kitchen. No more need to apologize when guests come.

wee wander press image 5 copy

I’m more than a little excited to release my first dress pattern of the season! This dress was a collaboration with an apparel designer, Nemiha Studebaker.

I designed the dress and she drafted out the pattern for us all to use, and It’s available as a FREE PDF PATTERN below.

wee wander dress1

This dress was inspired by my love for fresh pressed blouses on little girls, but the freedom of something mostly sleeveless and easy to wear. Double ruffles on the bodice, box pleats on the skirt, a side zipper and a button on the back make this dress ultra feminine but clean lines.

This dress features my Border Print Summer Night Lights, which makes for a very easy skirt (and dress!) design because of the large amounts of surface to draw from. This dress would be lovely with any other coordinating print on top, even some of the solids listed that coordinate with my fabric line from Michael Miller Fabrics. The possibilities are endless! There is pink/purple color way in these prints as well, which is super lovely to work with too! And I love the quality of this fabric…it’s so soft and light, but still a tight, dense fabric. My daughter is super sensitive about the slightest bit of “itch” in fabrics, and she loves these:)

This pattern runs size 2T to 6, and was originally created to be a size 4, which is the size that is featured.  wee wander dress2

(Please note….if you downloaded this before 2/14/14 please download again as we made some minor changes in the alignment of one of the pieces)

Happy Sewing! I hope you enjoy making this! Spring is in the air, and I can’t wait to see all the little girls who will be chasing fireflies this summer wearing their Wee Wander Dress made by someone they love;)

PDF Olympic Valentines

olympic valentine.blog

It’s that time of year, where I get to figure out what I’m going to design for my kids for valentines. And this year, with THREE kids who have parties…and multiple parties….I’m keeping it simple but still super special.

Valentines Day is during the Winter Olympics…not something that has ever happened since my kids have had a school valentines party….and it will be the only one in their elementary school career! So, I decided to create something just for the occasion.

A super easy project….4 cards per print out, a chocolate gold coin that you can tape onto the back of the flat card, or attach to some ribbon for a fashionable goal medal!

A sure WIN this year. Feel free to download, and share the olympic love!

Happy Valentines Day!

(extra hugs and kisses:)

Do you have a room to show?

Here at Sarah Jane Studios, we LOVE getting inspired by children’s spaces.

I’m still finishing putting together my own kid’s spaces (it takes forever it seems to get it “just” right!) and so we love it when you show us your magical rooms.

Are you designing a space or redesigning a space and are willing to make it photo worthy and blog about it? We are interested in working with Mama’s who have well designed spaces in mind. Shoot us a little “hello” and we’d love to work with you and contribute to your little one’s room!

Here are some recent shots of Finn’s room that his mom emailed me just this week.

I just love how this room works together. I especially love seeing boy rooms!

Check out more of his amazing room here. 

And if you are wanting to work with us, again, please send us a message! We are looking forward to showing off more creative spaces!

Wee Wander Blog Tour: Twin Quilt Pattern

lattice quilt image web

The projects are rolling in for the Wee Wander Blog Tour, and I’m so excited to share this twin quilt tutorial.

This is a super great FAT QUARTER project, that uses a single fat quarter stack of all my Wee Wander Prints. Emily Carr of Simple Girl Simple Life put this tutorial together, and you can see it here.

twin quilt web

I love this quilt, and how all the prints go so well together. We even used the border print and it makes for such a magical, simple quilt!

Ella has this on her bed, and she loves to stare at all the pictures every night. It’s SO hard it seems to get a decent picture of a large quilt! I’ve not yet mastered that!

Here is a collection of the fabrics so you can get a closer look:

GIVEAWAY: Smart Creative Style course!

What would you give to work with a team of creative minds to help you find your own personal creative style? So many of us have a creative vision, but do you feel your branding and style is strong and uniquely yours?

Today I’m offering a scholarship to a fantastic course called SMART CREATIVE STYLE aimed at helping creatives find their creative voice.

Many of you know Monica Lee, of Smart Creative Women. If you don’t, you’ll love her after visiting her site where she interviews creative women who have SO much to offer. She’s got an entire archive of people in textile, paper, fashion and home design that she interviews and gets right to the bottom of what they do, and how they do it. Pretty brilliant if you ask me. And the site offers tips and advice from some pretty amazing artists and designers.

I’ve known Monica for 2 years, and she continues to impress. She’s a wealth of knowledge,and she’s an amazing coach!

I’m giving away ONE SCHOLARSHIP to this 6 week program (worth $440!!)

Here’s what it’s all about(from the site):


Your “creative style” is who you are visually and aesthetically. It also in your products and messaging. There is no doubt that we are in a world that is becoming more and more visual, and it’s more important than ever to have  your style nailed down. You don’t want to look like anyone else and why should you?

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 11.02.10 AM

Trust me, it is all too easy to get caught up in the visual clutter and to lose your way, falling out of sync with who you truly are. We veer off course. This is your time to define or redefine your style, business and branding.

The world is dying for you to be authentic. But up until now, no one is encouraging you to take the time and figure out HOW to tap into your authenticity or your creative style. They just say you NEED it but don’t offer the HOW.


confetti2Smart Creative Style is a 6 week e-course where you will you nail your look, your branding and your messaging down. Each week offers visual and sensory exercises because as a creative person, you LEARN and DISCOVER differently.confetti1
To win this scholarship, here’s what you need to do: 

1) Leave a comment below telling Monica why you need this course


2) Share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and/or Pinterest and mention any links below (one for each entry)

3) Come back Friday morning, Feb. 7th to see the lucky winner!
