All About Linen
Finally, I found time to print my Vintage Collection screenprint in all three colorways on natural linen! I know it has taken awhile and there have been people waiting and I apologize. It's been a busy summer and we have just had a hot spell that made lots of heat setting with an iron seem really unappealing!
This is the first time I have printed Vintage Collection in orange on linen and I just love it.
I've been sold out of My Happy Place screenprint on linen for awhile too. This time, I printed it on 100% linen suiting in sand. It's just a touch lighter in color than the oatmeal colored linen and makes the print pop. The pictures really don't do it justice. The weight is a bit more substantial too and I think it would be great for pouches and bags.
All these prints are available in limited quantities in my shop.
If you have an Etsy shop, you know what a thrill it is to be included in a treasury. I've had the pleasure of being in a few lately and I wanted to share them with you because it's so fun to see how people group items!

In more exciting news, Penny from sewtakeahike finished up her amazing Dresden plate for her Ringo Pie bee and has included my Vintage Collection fabric! I am really excited about that as she told me that it would take her a long time to find the perfect project. Instead, she found one right away! I love to see my prints being used!
