My friend Kyle really liked the fabric designs included in this Jenean Morrison fabric quilt square set.  He asked for a few fabric squares and a rubber band and within a few minutes he made me..... 
...these beautiful flower rosettes.  Can you imagine that these flower rosettes were made with just a few fabric squares and a rubber band?  I will re-create these and share a how-to-guide with all of you in the near future.  I just couldn't wait to share these gorgeous fabric flower rosettes with you.  Be inspired as I am.

I will take this beautiful flower rosette and tie it to my favorite pen so I will never lose my pen again.  But these flower rosettes could be use for many purposes.  How about attaching it to your little girl's hairband?  Let your imagination takes its course.

Sophie from Sophie Junction Blog purchased this large floral print by Jane Sassaman to re-upholster her wing chairs.  Sophie was nice enough to allow me to use her pictures to share the results with all of you. 


This home decor fabric is called Sweet Potato Vine Strawberry but it is unfortunately sold out at this point of time.  It is part of the Prairie Gothic Collection that Jane Sassaman designed exclusively for Free Spirit.  If you purchase high quality home decor fabric like this, you know it will stand up for daily use. 


So next time you think of purchasing new furniture, think re-upholstering. Or purchase used furniture like Sophie did and re-upholster with designer home decor fabric.  That is what I call designing on a budget.  Thanks for the inspiration Sophie!

Ever wonder what to do with your scrap fabric?  If you are a fabric addict like myself, you will keep every little fabric scrap.  See this mess of very thin scrap fabric strips. 


These strips are all Jenean Morrison fabric designs, all of them part of her California Dreamin' Collection.  I adore this fabric collection so I could not bear throwing it out.  I took three of the longest fabric strips and tied the ends in a know as shown in the picture here:


Next, I started braiding the thin fabric strips.  I ended up with about 1 1/2 yard of braided fabric.

I hand stitched the fabric strips togehter right underneath the knot.  Once stitched together, I cut off the knot so my coaster is nice and flat.  I just started forming a "snail" with the braided fabric and handstitched it at the bottom as I went until along.  I kept going until I ended up with this beautiful round coaster:

If your fabric strips are too short, just hand stitched them together before starting to braid.  My strips were about 2 yards long and I ended up with a 1 1/2 yard string once braided. 

Aren't you glad you did not throw your scrap fabric away?  There are so many great creative projects that can be made with scrap fabric.  Just a little imagination, inspiration and lots of beautiful scrap fabric and you will be good to go for your next creative endeavor!  Have fun.

Amy Butler is sharing a visual story of her experiences traveling through India with her Soul Blossom Collection. Her inspiration for this collection was the culture, rich colors, amazing textiles and ornate architecture of India.

Her passion for this Soul Blossom Collection is contagious....when visiting the Amy Butler Design website, I was just so inspired to start my next creative project using her Soul Blossom Fabric.  Here are my favorite pictures by Amy Butler.

The Bloom Quilt made entirely with fabrics from Amy Butler's Soul Blossom Collection.  To download the free Bloom Quilt Pattern, click here.


This handbag was made with the Disco Flower Chocolate Fabric and the bow was made with Sari Blooms Raspberry.  If you like to make this bag, you can do so using the Amy Butler Swing Bag Sewing Pattern. 


How about making this Sunshine Quilt which is also made entirely using fabrics from the Soul Blossom Collection.  To download the free quilt pattern for the Sunshine Quilt, click here.

I absolutely love this bag...I am calling it a diaper bag since it has these wonderful large pockets on the side that would be perfect for the baby's bottle.  This bag features the Fuchsia Tree Carmine fabric from the Soul Blossom Collection. 


BE INSPIRED!

Dena Designs' new Taza Fabric Collection is modern, romantic and absolutely beautiful.  All fabric designs are available in four colorways that can be easily mixed and matched.  Imagine making a pillow cover utilizing one of the cool stripe pattern and mix it with another lumbar pillow that is made out utilizing one of the mod floral patterns?  There are endless possibilities with this Dena Fishbein fabric collection.  Let your imagination takes its course. 


All designs from the Taza Collection have been added to my website and orders can be placed.  Just note that the fabric will not be in the studio for shipment until 2nd or 3rd week of August but that is just a week or two away.  My creative mind is going 100 mph looking at these gorgeous fabric designs.  I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Melissa White is an artist who lives on the Sussex Coast of England.  In 2010, manufacturer Westminster Fibers asked her to design a fabric collection exclusive for them and the Fairlyte Garden Collection was born.  Melissa White named this first fabric collection after her business Fairlyte.  Here are pictures taken from the Melissa White Blog that features the beauty of her Fairlyte Garden Fabric Collection.


These fabric rosettes are pretty and simple and a perfect medium to display the gorgeous colors of this Melissa White Fabric Collection.


The Fairlyte Garden Fabric Collection features beautifull rendered birds, dragonflies....


 

...bees and twisting vines the clever illusion of distress and age within the design...


...all pulled together with breathtaking colour combinations.

This fabric collection was first introduced in January 2011 and sold out very quickly.  We should be getting it back in stock by the end of this month (end of August).....

....but you can go ahead and place an order for any of these beautiful designers fabrics now.  After this August shipment, there will be no further shipments.  Get it before it is sold out!

These pictures features the famous Etsuko Furuya Japanese Fabric designer at the Quilt Market.  Etsuko Furuya is a household name in the fabric world.  Looking at her Echino fabric designs, you cannot help but be inspired. 


You will find many many creative project ideas just by looking at these two pictures.  The tall lampshade in the back of this first picture was made using the Echino Woodland Forest Fabric design. 

The cuts out laying on the table and the same cut outs sewn on the bags were done utiling the Echino Bird Border Fabric.


These two handbags were made using the Echino Bonbon Brown and the Echino Bonbon Natural fabric.  As you can see, it takes only a good look at Etsuko Furuya sitting at the Seven Island Manufacturer's booth to come up with enough creative projects to last you through the year.
