Yeah, the cotton poplin stays really soft. Use a coupon like I did, to keep the cost down.  And anytime you need to print something, find some other things to put on the page, too, so that you use the whole page and get multiple projects out of a single sheet. I have no affiliation with this company, by the way!

These are great tips! I do the same (find other things to print to use whole page) when I print on the disolvable solvy. I have several things in the to-be-made stack because of it!

But the printable fabric is only FIVE pages! Zoinks!  It's like gold!  But I still want to try some gold! It's so tempting!

Its definitely a good time to use a 40%-off coupon! They also sometimes have sales on the computer-based supplies, which is when I bought mine. When you do that AND you get 3 or 4 projects out of each sheet, then it doesnt seem so so expensive.

Here is the kit endymion sent me-

One of my favorite parts of the TM patch swap is swapping fabric and sewing notions. Such a fun way to spice up your stash!

I love the card scene from Alice in Wonderland. Is this printed as well? The colors are so bright! Also, she said she picked up that gray piece from an art student's garage sale. It was a practice piece and has been painted/stamped with bunnies and starlings on it. Why can't I find stuff like that at sales?!!



Thanks again endymion!

Squee! The grey bunny fabric is crazy sweet!  And the cards are so you! 100% perfect!

Also, an art student garage sale? *sweeping arm across table* I'll take this, please!

Aw, Ladybugs, the owls are so cute! And I like the way the stitching meanders from one number to the next. Nice birdcage charm, too!

The one with the flowers is cool, also. Is it pieced together, like a quilt?

endymion, to answer your question about the flower patch...the fabric I chose was from an item I couldn't use.  When I was cutting out the squares for the swap, I didn't realize that where I cut it, it was already in halves!  When I did find out, it was too hot to go back upstairs (craft room is basically in the attic) to find the fabric, cut it again, iron it, etc...  So I just sewed the two halves together and thought it added some interest to the patch in the end! Cheesy

Loving what Curiousfae sent me Cheesy she also spoiled me with chocolate which my children will enjoy because, even though I desperately want to, should not!!  Allergies :/  I love them both, the Ankh is gorg, and the skull is cute, creepy cute Cheesy Oh, I loved doing this swap.  I sent mine off today Kelli and Kat, hope you like them <3




Thank you!!!
