Doing a “Happy Dance” – my new “Play Your Song” fabric line is amazing!

September 13, 2009


My latest fabric collection from South Sea Imports is a big hit with my family.  My son, brother and sister-in-law all play guitar and are fighting for pieces of my fabric.  I have yet to decide who gets what and may just send them all to the store to buy their own!

Musical notes, instruments and messages like Play Your Song and Listen with Your Heart add emotion to the art.  SO… dance on down to your favorite fabric store today and ask to see the “Play Your Song” collection from Tara Reed.

If you would like a free project sheet that includes a quilt, piano bench cover and 2 notebook inserts (all designed by the good people at South Sea Imports), CLICK HERE.  And if you make something you love with the fabric, let me know!  I’d love to post a picture.


Happy creating!

Play Ball! Sports fabric now in stores

September 30, 2008

Soccer, Basketball and basic sports fleece and flannel are now available at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.

So if you have any sports fans looking for a fashionable way to stay warm, wrap them up in soft, fleecey goodness!

Or for the younger crowd, why not whip up a soccer or basketball pillow case to spruce up their bed and give them something no other kid on the team has?

Happy Creating!  ~ Tara

P.S. If you do make something with my fabric, I’d love to see a picture!  Email me!

The perfect gift for a modern baby…

August 13, 2008

I’m going to be an aunt!

Assuming all goes well, my second niece or first nephew will arrive on August 27th. I have to tell you, I think it’s pretty funny that my brother and I are 2 years apart (I’m older) and our kids will be 15 years minus 4 days apart. Go figure! But you have to wait for the time to be right for you, and I believe these children came at the perfect time for the parents.

And besides, if he had a baby before 6 months ago, I wouldn’t have had my own fabric to use when making a baby quilt. So the timing is truly perfect, wouldn’t you agree?

This snuggle fleece fabric is (or was, not sure!) available at JoAnn Fabric stores. I spent last weekend cutting, organizing and sewing squares. Then I hopped online and ordered a flip Video™ camera — they are very cool and very portable.

What more could a baby want? A warm, homemade blanket featuring the art of “Aunt Tara” and easy access to record all the funny things they do!
