for the love of fabric

fabric
definition:  cloth, material
synonyms: bolt, fiber, goods, textile 

Fabric has been a constant love in my life.  The colors, textures, patterns and endless choices can keep me in fabric store heaven for hours!  

One long time love is linen.  The natural fiber of linen and the beautiful way it drapes is perfect for clothes, bedding, aprons, accessories, pillows...

I would like to introduce you to the Chelsea pillow...   The Chelsea pillow is a romantic pillow made with a lovely white linen.  The pop of color adds a little touch of sunshine!


More linen creations...
full size headboard upholstered in linen
slip-covered linen footstool
linen slip-covered drum shade pendant

Cotton is also a great fabric to work with.  It's crisp and easy to handle.  This apron was made with a vintage cotton sheet.  


The linen and cottons above are great neutrals but there's always room for a little color...

I like that crisp white apron. A person could wear that for a summer top, if it covered your top, maybe wear a white t-shirt under it

I love the Chelsea pillow, of course :) And that couch... I love fabrics just because of the things you can do with them!

I'm a big fan of ornate headboards and that one is beautiful! The contrast with the natural linen fabric works perfectly.
