Hand Dyed Fabrics

I had a call from a friend who was clearing out her sewing room. She had some hand dyed fabrics and wanted to know if I could use them. I love hand dyed fabrics, probably because I do not dye fabrics myself or maybe just because the colors are not interrupted with designs. Whatever my reason, I said "yes, I can put them to use".

I love receiving new fabrics, I'm sure you do too. This week I received some of the newest Hoffman Fabrics. There were so many to choose from, but I couldn't get them all so had to settle on just a few.

Recently I ordered some Hoffman fabrics and they arrived in the mail yesterday. I love Hoffman Fabrics and in particular batiks and the 1894 Bali hand-dyes they have. There is such a wonderful range of shades and colors that I wished I owned them all.

Fabric Book - Phantom of the Opera

I made this fabric book for a dear friend a few years ago after we had been to see "The Phantom of the Opera" together. I have used many embellishments from buttons and beads to paper and clay to re-enact this movie. Fabric books are a fun way to keep memories of trips, celebrations and all sorts of different occasions.
