To be honest, I’m not a fan on linen – but truth be told, I’ve never tried sewing with it. I’ve only ever worn it… during hot summer days.
I have a copy of the Zakka Style book and have enjoyed looking through all of the gorgeous pictures and gaining a lot of inspiration.
I have approximately 1/2 yard of linen fabric which I bought from Hawthorne Threads in a scrap bag.
Just on a side note – if you want to buy a bag of gorgeous surprises, visit Hawthorne Threads. Their scrap bags are fantastic value. I’ve bought a few over the last couple of years and am always super impressed.
I googled (as you do) and my 1/2 yard of linen and found out that it is Isso Ecco & Heart Flower Natural.
I shall team it up with some monochromatic prints – possible in the lime green or red.
And I hope to make a couple of these Zakka Patchwork Pot Holders.
And look and the back view, they even have pockets for your hands!!
Wish me luck! The linen is beckoning… okay, actually it’s not. Perhaps it’s time for another cup of tea… to build up my strength (and courage).
