Just one more and then I'll stop...

I've been a little bit obsessed with this inkjet printable fabric.
I altered the flap on the Large Tote to show off my wee girl's beautiful painting. It's covered with a layer of pvc and bound with black pinwale corduroy (gotta love that bias tape maker!!).

I thought the lining was worth showing. It's from the Rio range by Marcus fabrics. LOVE IT! Love the whole range, in fact... and ... ummm ...HAVE most of the range in my stash!


The gorgeous Justine dropped in with the newest MixTape yesterday. Our little girls played, we chatted. I think I might have given her a few ideas about ways to use her little one's beautiful paintings (which has got to be better than what I shared with Jodie!).

Your little girl does the most amazing paintings - so vibrant.
You've got me thinking about how to use this fabric for some Christmas gifts, maybe for grandparents???

It's great Nikki. Fantastic idea. Christmas presents for my nieces are now sorted. And try not to make promises you can't keep... like me... just one more piece of chocolate and then I'll stop! Who am I trying to kid!

PS... why would you stop when it's so great.

Forgot to say... I think this bag needs to be added to the 'Large Tote & Satchel' webpage.

I love it too Nikki, all of it - paintings, purple cord, bags - mixtape too! I'm enjoying my copy each night in bed. Had coffee with Jodie today and she seems better.

I did the same thing when it first came in. You want to print everything on it!

Don't stop! I'm loving the mere NOTION of that inkjet fabric. Mine arrived in the post yesterday (very impressive uber efficiency - thank you) and I have to keep hiding it from myself until I can be rid of some work stuff...

Bree said...
