Redwork Holly Coasters, Yoga Shorts and Vegetable Fabric

A set of redwork holly coasters on hand dyed linen fabric in the color of a warm coffee drink accented with a sage green ribbon.  I used hand dyed red flosses for the nice color variations.  You can find them here in my Etsy Shop    

Since it's getting closer to the end of the year, I've wanted to finish up some projects I started earlier.  I took the Craftsy class Sewing with Knits and loved it.  I made a t-shirt, a hoodie and these yoga shorts.  I love their classes and they are lifetime classes so you can take a break and come back later to make more items.      

Here's another bundle of my Spoonflower fabric samples with coordinating colors.  Their printing technology is really nice.  The colors, patterns and watercolor variations print out wonderfully.   

This fabric is called "Green Veggies" and has pen and ink with watercolor for the illustrations.  Prints nice and bright. 

This fabric is called "Blue Stripes" and the sample is of the Spoonflower performance pique fabric.  It is wonderful for summer sportswear.  It's a nice stretchy knit.

Christmas Tree Coasters and Holiday Stockings

Thinking of Christmas gifts and things that might be nice for gift exchanges at work or within crafting groups, I made some hand embroidered coasters with little primitive trees.  They were fun to make and I liked the French knots on the trees ~ they're one of my favorite stitches.  You can find them here in my Etsy shop.       

I've also made a stocking pattern with several patterns that can be embroidered on the cuff.  There are several snowman patterns, cardinal and a tea set.  These are a nice size for filling with fun things to give to friends and special people in your life for the holidays.  You can find the pattern in my Artfire Shop

This is a collection of Spoonflower fabric samples that have been printed on some of their other styles of fabric including the faux suede, performance knit and the silky faille.  

This sample of the dots is printed on the faux suede and it prints beautifully with lively color and captures the watercolor paint variations nicely.  The fabric is so soft.  This fabric is called "Blue Wash Dots" and you click on this link to view it

Journal Covers, Flour Sack Towels and Faux Suede

Getting ready for our local Sagebrush Sisters craft show this weekend.  We're going to have a mobile/pop up style craft show ~ kind of like the pop up restaurants that are here and there now.  I've made some journal covers with colorful fabrics and fussy cut centers.  I love the fruit ladies fabric.  I've made things out of this fabric before and always get a kick out of it.  Great colors and personality.  

I added fabric borders to flour sack towels.  On some of them I used my Lemons watercolor fabric from my Spoonflower shop.  Bright and colorful gifts for the kitchen!

I liked the floral fabric with complimentary colors to the lemons fabric.  I made several towels with the lemons fabric and added different fabrics at the bottom with flowers and stripes.    

This is my Pink Chrysanthemum Spoonflower fabric printed on their faux suede fabric and it is wonderfully soft, prints beautifully and would be great home décor fabric.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
