I was one lucky girl, let me tell you!
First, from the Micala of Rose & Lula... I love the colors on the darker linen here. It reminds me of cherry blossoms. I'm not sure what I will end up using this for exactly, but I can say that as soon as I opened it I thought it would make a lovely bag (for me)!
Next, from Suz, of Sew Pony... I love this, it's so cheerful! Guess who else likes it?...Violet! This one might be used for her in some way.
Suz mentioned on her blog that this was made using a wooden peg as the stamp. She said that it reminded her of Rashida Coleman Hale's washi fabric... It totally does! We also think it looks a bit like a pile of crayons, or pick up sticks.
Lastly, from Susie of Flower Press... Susie showed a bit of her screen printing this fabric here. I am so impressed by this fabric. It makes me feel like it would be fun to give screen printing a try sometime, although it feels quite intimidating! This is actually the second time I got to swap with Susie, last time I got a beautiful pink prism fabric which I used in a foldover clutch. She does such an amazing job! I haven't quite decided what to do with this one, but I will hold onto it until that perfect idea comes up!
Being in the handprinted fabric swap is so much fun. It's so nice to see the different things that arrived in the mail, all made differently but all with such care and kindness!
See, I told you I was a lucky girl!
Thanks so much to my swap partners!
Now, I'm off to do a bit of handprinted fabric with Violet and Henry's preschool this morning!
Have a great day!
