Featured on The Fabric Shopper!


Recently, via Twitter, (which I am still trying to get the hang of) I had the good fortune and pleasure of meeting Rosie of l. blanch designs, and creator of the wonderful resource The Fabric Shopper. Rosie contacted me about the possibility of doing a little write up on my new experience in trying my hand at fabric designing, including what intrigued me and how I went about getting started. Today she has featured it on her wonderful site. You can see it here. Thanks Rosie! (And while visiting Rosie's blog be sure to check out some of her other posts, including this awesome 1950's style dress made out of fabric selvages! Also have a peek at this Max of "Where the Wild Things Are" costume that Rosie made for her granddaughter, it is the cutest thing ever!

Woohoo! Congratulations!

One day, when your fabric is selling for $164 for a fat quarter (can you BELIEVE that there are some Flea Market Fancy fanciers who are willing to pay that?!)

I'll say "I was a follower before she even started designing fabric!

I saw that selvage dress a little while ago and thought it was the most amazing thing ever made with selvages!

Hey Harriet said...

Congrats on that feature Vic! It was a great read! Considering that fabric designing is still relatively new to you I think it's wonderful that people in the field are recognizing your talents so early on! A fantastic accomplishment and well done to you! Your fabric designs are gorgeous! I only wish I knew how to sew :)
