Don't you love all the interesting connections that you can make through the web. I've been writing a series of articles for Tara Gentile on Handmade in PA. About the time I started writing for her there, Tara took over Scoutie Girl, a blog "with a penchant for the passionately handmade." The original owner of Scoutie Girl is my first feature for a new series that I'm going to offer called handmade inspirations.
I've been searching for some sewing inspiration, and through this tangled web o' happenstance, I found Daisy Janie's beautiful line of organic cotton prints. Jan DiCintio is the woman behind this fab line of fabrics that is offered through her website, Daisy Janie and her etsy shop by the same name. I love the bold colors and their combinations. I'm particularly fond of the brown and blue colorway named avalon.
Now...what to make? I've been searching for a fabric to make curtains for our showroom cabin, or perhaps a pillow combining a couple of the designs from this colorway. I'm drawn to elsa and boxwood. I just love the organic retro feel of Jan's designs. Now go get inspired by the projects in Daisy Janie's Flickr pool. But one more thing before you go...
What has been inspiring you lately? I'd love to hear.
