In the Bag - An "Ugly Fabric" Challenge
I got my "ugly" fabric from Pam last week. Those of us in the group are challenged to use 90% of the two yards of fabric we exchanged to make an item. I sent Pam some "interesting" selections, and she sent me these:
The front print is a "feedsack" variant; and the two "little prints" are Cranston VIP fabrics. Probably from the late 70s or '80s, I would guess. I haven't quite figured out the orange yet, but it's a funky paisley.....
What is interesting is that I just bought some Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy prints. These are a few of them from the set of fat quarters I got:
I paired all of them up and here's the combination:
I think this is going to be fun....and I haven't even been into my "stash" yet. It will be fun to figure out how to work these fabrics into a "whole."
Just an intriquing little problem for a Monday.
Have a great week,
