Fan of the Month: Tia Kluesner

Congratulations to Tia Kluesner, our CKC Fan of the Month for July!  

I can't wait to show you the stunning project she put together for her little niece. 

Isn't this amazing?!  Baby Girl is wearing Sadie's Ruffled Diaper Cover and it looks oh-so-precious. The petite bed, gorgeous colors, and whimsical clothesline make the photo breathtaking.  But the sweetness doesn't stop there. I asked Tia to tell us a little about how this photo came to be.  Here's what she had to say: 

"My sister-in-law asked if I could make a ruffled diaper cover for newborn pictures when she had her baby, and she was describing the idea with a bed and clothesline behind. I thought, how cute would it would be to have coordinating outfits ranging in size from NB to 3T and she could take pictures every year with the baby wearing the clothes for that year and the rest hanging in the background. It's another way to show a child growing. So she picked out her fabrics and I made all the clothes. I thought the pictures turned out amazing!  My brother-in-law, Ryan Pendleton, took them. He does awesome work, mostly just for fun."

Is it just me, or is this photo loaded with happiness?  I've never met this baby (Tia's niece) but I think I could hang this on my wall and stare at it every single day. Thank you, Tia, for sharing her with us! 

As our Fan of the Month, I asked Tia to tell a little about herself and her sewing hobby and favorite patterns.

"I have been sewing with CKC patterns for over a year now. My first were the dresses my daughters are wearing on my business cover photo on Facebook, the Phoebe's.  I made them for our vacation to Michigan and got so many compliments.  As far as my favorite pattern, that's hard because I have so many! I love thh Paris I made for my youngest for Easter and the Yvette I modified for my oldest daughter. For boys I just made my son some superhero Xavier shorts and my newest nephew is all decked out in Greg's Knit Shorts in woven.  I just love how easy and simple CKC patterns come together. I've never questioned their instructions, which says a lot about how well put together they are and thought out when written." 

Thank you, Tia!  I had to check out the Greg's shorts she mentioned.  Here they are:

So cute!  And this is just one of her Greg's sets. She also has pirates, elephants, whales, anchors, etc. They're just so adorable. As fellow sewing fans, I think we can all appreciate Tia's amazing work. If you'd like to see more of her creations, visit Tia at her Facebook page, A LOT of ATTITUDE and show her some love!

Ahhh. I just can't get enough. Thank you, Tia. And congratulations on being our Fan of the Month for July.
