We’re welcoming a new year of inspiration and making with Design Bundle #5. This is the first of two bundles for the year that include a variety of pre-selected fabrics and notions for practicing favorite techniques and treatments, exploring colorways, and to adding to growing Swatch Libraries in the home design studio.
The fabrics in this newest bundle include hues of taupe and brown with Natural, Sand, Doeskin, Ballet, and Camel 100% organic medium weight cotton jersey, pre-cut into 10” X 16” swatches. Featured designs are Anna’s Garden and our newly released Variegated Stripe stencil, which are hand stenciled on the jersey by our production team. The Variegated Stripe stencil is a full-sized version of the design used in The Geometry of Hand-Sewing. Find the Variegated Stripe stencil online in 10mil Mylar or available as a US Letter or A4 downloadable PDF.
You can find inspiration and instructions for a variety of appliques, beading treatments, and stitches in our Studio Book Series, look to our upcoming Techniques class at Bluprint, or embellish the swatches with the treatment of your choice.
