We're sitting here at RCF headquarters in the middle of a huge snowstorm dreaming of hitting the beach in these amazing swimsuits!  Summer can't come soon enough!

Today's stops will have you wishing for lazy summer days filled will sunshine, pool time, and lots of darling swimsuits!

Heather Handmade is sharing an insightful tutorial on how to applique on stretch fabrics.  Her suit is perfect for all those swim scraps too!


Rachel of Hello Little Fish is doing what she does best- sewing AMAZING swimsuits for little boys!  Check out her post for the cutest baby girl swimsuit ever.

Pear Berry Lane

Cassie of Pear Berry Lane sewed up two suits for her darling girls.  I think she deserves a huge round of applause for conquering her fear of bindings.  Head to her post to hear her tips and tricks.

Mabey She Made It

Lisa of Mabey She Made It is sharing an adorable suit for herself.  She made reversible swim bottoms and matching board shorts so this suit if full of options!

Paisley Roots

Karly of Paisley Roots rolled with an idea and the final suit is brilliant!  Head to her blog to read her tips and see this cute suit in all its glory.

Hi, fellow RCF fans! I’m Rachel from Handcrafted by RED, and I’m so excited to share these projects with you. I’m part of the RCF promo team and I’m also a brand ambassador for Shannon Fabrics - so when I heard that RCF was using the Shannon Fabrics Spa Cuddle for their new minky base, I was doubly excited! This minky is AMAZING; it’s double sided and super plush. It’s 100% polyester so it’s machine washable and does not stretch, which makes it much easier to sew than you might expect.
