It's All About the Fun
I made up the rest of the White-on-White Wool Applique Bag kits today. The base wool and reproduction print I used for the lining (a Jo Morton print, by the way) are used up and my ivory buttons are pretty much gone. But what fun it was putting them together! I love it all - color-planning, cutting the pieces, selecting the buttons, ironing the fabrics before they're packaged, even choosing the right font to print on the paper label I staple to the bag. It's all FUN! I'd forgotten how much fun making kits is, and I need to do more of it. But there are so many patterns - so many and so little time! Is there a particular wool or wool & fabric pattern you'd like to see kitted? Leave a comment on this post or shoot me an email - next Wednesday I'll pick the suggestion that I can best create a great kit for and send the suggester (is that a word??) a nice piece of wool. So, get those books, mags and patterns out, and let me know what you want!
And as far as more White-on-White kits - I'm working on pulling some similar wool and fabric combinations together and might have a source for more old ivory buttons. Watch this space for updates...
P.S. I forgot to say, the design needs to be from a book or pattern that I sell. Patti's suggestion of a Maggie Bonanomi design from one of her book's, Nature's Offerings, definitely fits the bill and is a great suggestion - Thanks, Patti! Keep 'em coming! ~Wendy
