Friday Finds – July 20, 2012


July 20, 2012 by Amie M

I’ve been on a fabric kick lately. There are really some gorgeous ones out there that are begging to made into something fantastic.

Pomegranates | white

This pomegranate would be lovely when done boldly as upholstery for boudoir chair. Or something with less of a visual draw in a table tray as the backing. I love the tropical feel to this print. It shines a happiness light in your face, I think it’s called the sun?

I’ve been considering venturing into the realm of big people garment sewing. You know upscaling the baby dresses I recently made. And there is a Sew-Along (or two) for a lovely dress by Colette Patterns. Macaron is a two fabric lovely, and this fabric is a contender for the body of the dress. I’m leaning towards a pale blue or a cream for the second colour.

In imagining a quilt for a certain baby in my life, I came across this lovely fabric line. Oops-A-Daisy by Keiki for Moda is adorable, not too childlike, and just a little bit of precious.

Or I can always up the cute, and purchase the line of Storyboek by Birch Organics. I love the little windmills, and the teeny fishies. Definitely not too girlie, yet still wonderfully soft.

I have some plans on the go, don’t I? I wonder when I will get to them! After that t-word is done I should make a dent in the little ideas floating around upstairs.

    I want a sewing machine now. I made some big people garments (dresses) when I still lived with my mom and had access to one. They are so easy – much more space to work with.
