This just never gets old ... being asked to put together a Blogger's Bundle of my favourite fat quarters. This is the third time Pink Castle Fabrics has asked me to make one and it's definitely my best yet. (Says me.)
Because I enjoy making small, quick projects with just 2 fabrics, I decided to choose another eight pairs if coordinating prints. They are almost all designed by my beloved Japanese fabric companies - Lecien, Yuma, Kokka, etc. They're fun, whimical, pretty, the scale is small ... makes my heart fabric-loving heart go pitter-patter.
My approach was to pick a whimsical print with a smaller coordinate. I was particularly drawn to the Liberty-esque florals that I love so much.
This pair - of Lecien's Flower Sugar reinvented as a tea party and a newspaper print - makes me giggle a bit. I was thinking it'd be fun to read the morning paper (or iPad/blogs) while enjoying a cup of tea. When my daughter saw the tea party fabric, she begged me to please make her an apron out of it. Excellent - one Christmas gift idea solved. :)
Cute little kawaii red riding hood kittens!!!
This faux patchwork is perfect for pencil cases and such, but I also thought the squares would be fun to fussy-cut and made into labels for larger projects.
Don't you just love charming translations from Japanese to English? The above fabric reads, "I love the sweet cake and donut." And below, "It is loved by everyone beyond the time."
Cute, cute, cute.
This bundle is available for purchase here. FYI, stock is limited and the last few bundles I made for Pink Castle Fabrics sold out in about a week so if you don't want to be disappointed ...
