I have discovered a new fabric-line love. Well, obsession, really. When some of my favorite fabric designers joined forces to create Cotton + Steel, a division of RJR Fabrics, I knew it was going to be fabulous. I may have underestimated just how fabulous...my sewing studio is now overflowing with gorgeous prints that I have been using in just about every project lately. When RJR Fabrics saw some of my work on Instagram and asked if I'd like to participate in their What Shade Are You Cotton Supreme Solids Blog Hop, I immediately agreed. And then realized that I don't often create with solids. In fact, I usually only use them as zip pouch linings. Uh oh.
When I got the Cotton Supreme Solids color card in the mail, I may have done a little dance. I was hoping to create a wallet using one of my new favorite Cotton + Steel prints (Memory in Aqua from Playful by Melody Miller) and coordinating solids. But I had NO idea how many gorgeous solids there are in the collection, or that they go so beautifully with my favorite prints. As I stitched up my wallet, I realized that I had to show off these colors more. So I made a second project.
The back (in Goldilocks) came out just as awesome as the front. Did I mention that I love math and geometrics?! Binding is Arrows in mint by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cotton + Steel.
So now I have a fab new wallet and matching mini. This baby will be going on the wall in my studio. This project has inspired me to look at solids in a whole new way.
