Blush Fabrics


Dana of Made Everyday was kind enough to invite me be a part of her Blush Fabrics tour! Dana's was one of the first sewing blogs I discovered years ago and I've always loved her aesthetic. I'm a huge fan of bold graphic prints and this collection does not disappoint in that department. I chose to make two projects using the Tulips print in both color ways - Blush and Copper. Copper is a perfect orangey red and it's awesome for fall/winter - such a great color. These are both super soft quilt weight fabrics but you'll also find knits and rayon in the collection.

I used the Tulips in Copper to make a crossbody style bag which is my latest bag obsession. It's basically a hacked large Double Zip Pouch. I lengthened the bottom part of the front panel, added a front divided slip pocket, and boxed the bottom corners to add depth to the bag. The strap is attached to the sides of the bag using rivets. The bag has 5 pockets in all (not counting the main compartment) which is great for keeping everything organized. The overall dimensions of the bag: 10" H | 11" W | 2.5" D. 


I used the Peach colorway to make a zipper pouch/clutch with a few added details like piping, leather,  and wood beads to make things interesting.

  2. If purchasing fabric from a web site, the information should be displayed with the fabric. In case you find fabric that the fiber content is unknown, it can be tested by burning it. More about fabric testing later.martindale pilling tester
