I'm a new sewer, so this would be something simple like coasters or trim on my kitchen curtains.

Love the print, btw.

Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

no4daughter said...

I would love to use this fabric (one of the cutest fabrics I have ever seen) on a tote bag. I am trying to get up enough courage to open an Etsy shop and this fabric might give me a nudge in that direction.

littlecumulus said...

What an amazing fabric!! I think I might make a couple of napkins...

Very cute!

I LOVE that fabric. I have a chair thing, but for representational chairs only. My house is curiously void of chairs...

I would stretch the fabric over one of my thrifted embroidery hoops and add it to my growing wall of inspiration and goodness in my craft room/etsy shop room!

I'm going to go check out your shop now. I am always stunned how many cool shops their are on etsy that I haven't even seen yet!
Cheers,
Tracey

Hannah Stevenson said...

I LOVE your fabric! I would make something for my twin girls...maybe some pinafores with patchwork pockets.

Whitney said...

While I don't sew, I have great visions of displaying this fabric on some of my favorite pillows and admiring them from afar, lest I actually laid on it and disturbed the impression that it was actually sewn on. Or, I'd give it to my sister, who would no doubt make a fabulous quilt that I, also, could admire from afar.

Katie said...

This is adorable. I am not very good at sewing yet, but my almost mother-in-law (not married yet) would love it as a gift. And I think I could convince her to make me a skirt out of it!
