The powers that be made it a bit of a challenge to get Anna Maria Horner‘s game-changing new Loominous collection in the UK in a timely manner, so our counterparts in the US have had a head start stitching up lovely things with this gorgeous yarn-dyed woven fabric. I had a dip in the #loominous Instagram pool (also #loominousfabric and #amhloominous) and have picked out some favourite makes for you to draw inspiration from! All fabrics featured in this post are in stock as I am writing this so start shopping here!
@nf_merritts It’s no secret that I love an excuse to sew. #alisonscabanaboogie last night was the perfect excuse to make and wear the high-waisted pants of my dreams. My original intention was to make matching separates from this #amhloominous fabric, but quickly realized that my limited sewing time wouldn’t allow for it. I settled for just the pants and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks @annamariahorner for designing fabric that makes my heart sing! Another thanks to @thealisonshow for the perfect excuse to make my dream pants happen. #annamariahorner #simplicity1371 #simplicitypatterns

@thefooshe Today was Layla’s first day of school. She learned so many things! She was also quite the Chatty Cathy with her teacher. at least she’s consistent. Now I get to put on my teacher hat and build on what we learned today until the next week’s class. —— Her #oliverands Library dress is also on the blog today! This one was made with #annamariahorner #loominous and Dowry #freespiritfabrics #iamafreespirit

@bbgoochi Same dress, same fabric, another color #loominous @annamariahorner from @fancytigercrafts Who are great to do business with mail order or when I drive up to Denver. And the Loominous collection is wonderful for garments. Yes, my client likes multiples. #designerStudio #simplysantafe #handsewn #santafe
@birchandbirdsong …and the gorgeous #loominous back of my mini, plus a great little drawstring bag and a super generous stack of AMH fabric! Also, not pictured, a needle threader, card and some ‘sewing edge’ tape. Thanks so much Karen @badlandsquilts – I really do feel spoiled!
@nkdesignz Liesl & Co Gallery Tunic in Loominous fabric. Not sure you can see the metallic threads — this fabric is awesome. Would definitely make this again, or maybe the dress version. Instructions are great. #loominous #LieslandCo #gallerytunic
