I am so in love with this fabric. I have been pinning it, searching Etsy and Ebay and all over the internet for it, and finally I have it!! To have and to hold. Can you tell I am a little excited?
I just ordered it yesterday and got it today. Who would know that the place that actually had all the coordinating fabrics I wanted would be right here in Portland! It was only $5 to ship though so I still had it shipped rather than driving into Portland. With the price of gas lately shipping isn't such a bad deal anymore. The place I got it from is called The Quilted Castle. Oh my do they have a lot of beautiful fabrics! This fabric line is called Durham Anew Fall '11 by Lecian. You can find it here.
My main plan with this fabric is to make myself a cute shopping cart liner like the one I made for my Mom recently.
I can just picture how cute it will be now. Here is the plan...
This will be the outside fabric and the inside pocket.
This small rose print will be the lining.
This lattice type print will be for the ruffle.
This dot will be the bows.
This collection also comes with a pink background, or a white background. What I chose is the aqua background. Not sure how it is showing up on your computer screen.
I got enough that if I cut it all out perfectly, I will be able to make 2 pillows and back the back of my built in bookcase with it also. So stay tuned for my upcoming projects with this sweet fabric. :)
I am still battling a cold and fever and pain with my hip. But I am getting better. My Easter bunny projects are not done..I have no energy. My house is a mess too--which drives me crazy. Tonight I want to get my Easter projects done and so I can reward myself with a day of relaxation tomorrow. I just need to "get 'er done". Some chocolate wine should be just the right thing to help me do that.
I hope this finds everyone having a nice Easter weekend!
