Since the kiddos went back to school I have been hard at work creating my range of goodies for the FabMo Textile Art Boutique on the 27th October! Anyhow for those of you that are not familiar with all the goodness FabMo do for the community here is the lowdown… FabMo (a non-profit) collect interior design fabric samples and other bits and pieces to distribute to the public once a month to purchase by the bagful! You are only limited to your imagination as to what you can make.
Talk about getting organised… Here are some pics of my Domestic Goddess range that includes aprons, cushions, pincushions, totes and bags – whew! There has been a lot of cutting and sewing going on in my little craft room.
A work in progress – this may have been a curtain in a previous life!
Here are a few of the bags and totes that I have made from cotton/linen samples and even a sample from Missoni, super special indeed.

A tote bag made from a stiff exterior fabric embellished with a pocket
A linen/cotton tote with Missoni fabric pocket detail
These bags are amazing – I could only make a couple as the raw silk was the size of a curtain length and these bags are quite large, perfect for the market.
