{Fabric Friday} butterflies by hand…

{Abigail Brown Butterflies}

{Maja Backstrom – Butterfly Fabric}

{Greenolive Textiles– Flutterby Fabric & Modgreen Pod Fabric}
Ever since Sayer announced that he loved “butterflies & firetrucks”, I’ve been on the lookout for unique butterfly fabrics. I’m particularly drawn to fabrics that are made by hand & found these lovely examples while cruising through Etsy. On my search, I also ran across some beautiful fabric butterflies by Abigail Brown. Butterflies have a way of calming me down & making me feel rather hopeful, how about you? Thought it was a nice way to end the week- Happy  Fabric Friday

*Be sure to stop by next Friday for the 5 bundles Creative Competition – submitted photos. 
Have a great weekend!

{Fabric Saturday} Drool worthy fabric + 5 winners…

I’ve been drooling over this collection of Scandinavian fabric at Hus & Hem ever since Louise (thirtyfive flowers) posted about it on her blog. I suppose that my many times cruising through this collection may have influenced my fabric choices a bit for this “Textile Love” Etsy treasury that I just made. I wanted to put together a small collection of textiles that are either vintage or hand screen printed because I’m particularly fond of both. It’s just nice to have a documented list of some of my favorite patterns, colors, textile designers/printmakers & shops. You can view the treasury live here.
But wait… there’s something else I want to say…. I have some winners to announce for the  5 Bundle Creative Competition! Again, I had to use a random method to choose the winners- this time random.org helped me out. 

And the 5 creative competitors are :: 

1. Kari Firak  2. Ringmaster  3. Pop-i-cok  4. Heather  5. Amy Freeto 
(& Carmel- the winner of the fabric stash giveaway- is invited to play of course too). 
So, if you see your name, make sure I have your address so I can send you your bundle. You can email me at kristin{at}kltworks{dot}com. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Remember, I will post pictures of of all 5 creations on the April 1st Fabric Friday post. Thanks to all of you who entered & shared your fabric stories. This isn’t the end of my stash. There is more fun to had so stay tuned…
Happy weekend everyone!

{Fabric Friday} from papercutting to fabric…

The textiles of illustrator and designer, Heather Moore have caught the eyes of many. She is the designer behind Skinnylaminx. Her textiles are often created by drawing or papercutting which is why I respond so strongly to them I think. I love seeing someones hand in their designs.

She has aligned herself with a strong team to help her create wonderful products as well. She has her designs professionally printed in Cape Town onto fabric that is woven in South Africa (which is where she resides). Plus Heather has found an excellent seamstress “with magic fingers” to help her make lots of lovely products with her fabrics. You will find tea towels, napkins, children’s clothing and pillows in her shop in addition to yardage of her fabrics. The combination of nature and modern, clean design is what appeals to me in her work. Happy Fabric Friday!   {images via here}
