How I Love the Pfaff Creative Icon

Pfaff Creative Icon - Girls in the Garden Pfaff Brand Ambassador

Back in May, I received this amazing Pfaff Creative Icon and I am one of their Brand Ambassadors, which I am so thrilled and honored.

Today I want to share with you some of my favorite features!  This machine is Pfaff's top-of-the-line.
The workspace is huge, no more struggling to fit your garment or quilt in the machine and the light is amazing, it is so bright.

First let's start with the home screen, this screen is the first thing you see after the machine comes on.  It is a large, bright screen and did I mention touch screen?!!!  Just touch what you want to do and don't let me forget it has wi-fi!

Bellevue - Style Maker Jersey Knit

Straight Stitch Designs' Bellevue Top made from Style Maker Fabrics' Jersey

Oh, can I say how fabulous this fabric is?  I love this jersey knit from Style Maker Fabrics and the Bellevue pattern is a favorite for a raglan pattern.

McCall's 6886 - Floral Knit

McCall's 6886 from Mood Fabrics' floral Scuba Knit

This fabric grabbed me from the first time I saw it online and I knew I had to have it.  I was not sure what I wanted to make but I knew I needed to get this floral to my house.  The fabric is Italian Red and Orange Floral Scuba Knit and I am happy I order quickly because it is sold out.  Don’t worry, Mood Fabrics’ has several other scuba knit options.  Here is one with lots of red.

McCall's 7543

McCall's 7543 View B made from a border print purchased at Joann's

I have been loving the cold shoulder trend but have been very slow to take up the off- the-shoulder trend.   Finally, I did and I have to say, I am liking it!

Roscoe Blouse with Pfaff Creative Icon Embroidery and Decorative Stitches

Mood Fabric's Windowpane Cotton shirting used in a Roscoe Blouse with embroidery and full sleeves

 Windowpane shirting is always fun to use and sew and when I saw this one on Mood Fabrics's site I knew I had to make something with it.
