Even if I say so myself, the Up Up & Away fabric collection that I designed for Cloud9 Fabrics is totally gorgeous! And now they’re in my Cape Town shop, you can get your itchy, stitchy little fingers on them too.
The ten designs in the collection are all printed by Cloud9 Fabrics on organic cotton, which is great for quilting, but if that’s not what you’re into, they’re also brilliant for loads of other sewing projects. I’ve been playing with my stash, and have a bit of inspiration for you:
These little smock dresses don’t need much more than just a metre of fabric.
And if you have any leftovers, you can make a pencil case or two.
Cloud9 Fabrics has been sending these prints out to fabric stores all over the world (find a list of fabric shops on the Cloud9 website), and there are some awesome things that have been made with Up, Up & Away.
Just look at this gorgeous quilt by Maureen Cracknell. Isn’t it beautiful? See more pics and read more about it on the Maureen Cracknell Handmade blog, and if you’re inspired to make your own (respect!) Maureen has made a free downloadable PDF of the pattern, which you can get right here.
PS: Check in again soon for more Up Up & Away inspiration.
