Remember “Show and Tell”? Yeah, me too. One of the best parts of the week for a grade schooler! All week long, you wait for Friday, when you can bring that special something to school, that something that makes you so happy that you just have to show everyone!
That’s how I feel about fabric. I buy fabric sometimes for an intended project, but sometimes just because it’s wonderful and beautiful and catches my eye, knowing that eventually it will want to be made into something lovely. Fabric junkies call this the “stash”. It’s a collection, really, like baseball cards or stamps or coins (or peacocks or snow people or antique dishes or those carved wooden figures).
So, let’s have grown-up show and tell on Friday! I shall try and make this a regular occurrence. I will show and tell some fabric, and you can show and tell (if you have a blog) or just tell (in the comments) fabric or anything you’re loving right now.
From top to bottom: nap sack, rose bouquet, chrysanthemum
From top to bottom: empire weave, marble stripe, tile flourish (all from the Sapphire palette of Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom collection).
So tell me: what do you collect? Or show me some fabric!
Also tell me: should I iron these fabrics before I take a picture, or does it not matter? I’m just going to fold them back up because I’m not currently making anything with them!
