Rebel, Rebel | Free Star Wars Cut Files!

Do you ever run into a creative block?  I do for sure.  And it's A FREAKING BUMMER when it happens.  Like, life altering.  When I want to make something but can't figure out what to make, it's straight up depressing.

I went through it with these fabrics from RP Custom Fabrics.  They're gorgeous and I wanted to do them justice.  It basically destroyed my sewjo....and then a lightbulb went off.  Star Wars.  The answer is Star Wars.  (In reality, the answer is always Star Wars.)

I Heart Surge Fabric Shop

If you've never had the pleasure of drooling over the delightful fabrics that Surge Fabric Shop carries, allow me to introduce you to some.  Kayla, the owner, has this serious habit of spoiling me with extra goodies.  And because they show up as a surprise, I don't always have them on my immediate list of to-sews...no matter how badly I want to turn them into clothing.

But this past weekend, I distracted Louis and Bennett with a new PS4 and got some extra "just for fun" sewing time in.  Thank you new gaming system!

I'm back for my third share of the Bellisima Mundo fabrics from RP Custom Fabrics.  Sara hooked me up with SO MANY strike offs and I couldn't help but sew and share them all.  Plus it gives me an excuse to take photos of and with my two handsome guys...so you'll never find me complaining.
