I had an opportunity to join in another Warp and Weft Sewing Society Blog Hop. How could I not jump in? We got to play with some beautiful and newly released fabric designed by the ever so talented Elizabeth Olwen who designs fabric for Cloud 9 fabrics. Elizabeth had created a look book for us and I volunteered to make covered journals and why not make it even more interesting and add a zipper? Stay with me people because tomorrow, I will give you a little tutorial about how I did it.
is hosting “Warp and Weft Weekends” and the first one features Elizabeth Olwen and her new collection for Cloud 9 fabrics called Wildwood. This past weekend in Toronto, Elizabeth gave a talk and trunk show, and her fabrics were featured in an afternoon tea and workshop with to make a sweet satchel!
I could not be there, but the covered journals I made were. Have a look... this is the gorgeous fabric that I got to play with. (and a little bit of linen) This is really lovely fabric. It has a beautiful hand and the prints are just gorgeous. Elizabeth was inspired by walks in the forest and looking at the forest floor for rare flowers and interesting leaves with a little bit of fairy tale for good measure. And of course you might need a journal to record those walks.
Please have a look at the other beautiful creations that have already happened and those to come. Tomorrow is Esmari!
