Echino fabric and Woodland madness!



It's like Christmas here at Phat Fabric! The UPS elves keep delivering fabric. Above is the new Echino fabric line and it is inspiring. For example: I am inspired to make a skirt out of this fabric....



I think it would look great with a blue or red cardigan and some thick cable knit tights.


I'm inspired to make an apron out of this fabric.....




and a purse out of this fabric....





I will make all of those things just as soon as I get out of my woodland crafting obsession. Which, by the way, I made another woodland craft, or I should say creature. I am almost finished putting together a tutorial for it. This whole woodland Christmas theme is possibly getting out of control ;) My house is full of little branches and twigs lying all over the place, which apparently my vacuum can't handle. When I go on walks, I get super excited when I find sticks with perfect little off shoots of twigs. Even my kids have caught the woodland fever. Yesterday, during our terenchal down pour, they spotted a stick in the mud that was perfectly shaped for the woodland project I was working on, so barefooted and all, I went out into the front yard and yanked that stick out of the mud. Such madness!


There is a feeling of exuberance and a sense of accomplishment when you can create something out of natural resources. Sometimes, when I've completed a woodland project, something inside of me says, "Maybe you could have made it back in the pioneer days?" Surely they had wood glue back then ..... right? Come on, I would have made it... maybe???
