A fabric find

Posted by Red Ruby Rose Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Last week I went to a Textiles fair in Dorchester, Dorset and found this amazing vintage fabric featuring bold blooms and exotic birds and butterflies. It was one of those 'I don't want to cut it' moments when I made my first bag, but the details and colours are so gorgeous that it can stand up to cropping into the design.

  2. What a wonderful find - the fabric is beautiful. And so are the purses you made.

  4. That is fabulous fabric - and I totally understand the 'can't cut it' problem...it is the reason I have boxes of sari's and old curtains waiting for a new life - all beautiful and me to scared to CUT.

  5. Just found your blog. Wow, you sure to know how to pick your fabrics. I can see what you mean about not wanting to cut. But your finished product is absolutely gorgeous. Love the bags.
