If you follow me on Instagram (which you should– it is my FAVORITE form of social media! ;)), you’ll know that I received the strikeoffs of my new fabric line in the mail last week. What are strikeoffs, you ask? Strikeoffs are what the fabric mill sends back to us to correct, refine, etc. before they begin printing our fabrics on large bolts of fabric. They typically come in small amounts.. say a fat quarter in size to somewhere between 1/2 yard and 3/4 yard, and are on poor quality fabric. BUT, it’s the first step to having my prints on legitimate fabric, so I’m not complaining!
Here are some of the photos I shared of my strikeoffs…
(it is SO COOL to see my name + logo on the selvedge of fabric. Honestly, never thought I would see that day…)
And YESTERDAY, I created my first project with Gleeful! I chose the Cheerful Echo print to make an adorable metal frame clutch. I had never made a metal frame clutch before, but have had the supplies sitting around in my studio forever, so I thought I would give it a go. I LOVE how it turned out!
What are your favorite things to sew with small amounts of fabric?
