June at Eternal Maker

It's been a busy week- post Brexit moping up of tears (mine, husband and daughter), prom and preparing for a few summer events so I've squeezed this nine-of-the-best post  for sponsor Eternal Maker  into the last day of June.  Summer is currently on hold in the UK, nothing new there, so I've put a mix of garment weight fabrics alongside quilting cottons and  naturally, I had to include some double gauze.   Enjoy.


In rows, from left to right:

  1. Yukie Indigo Michael Miller Fabrics.  There's a more than hint of woven Ikat inspiration in this print.  Quilting cotton although you can see it made up in a man's shirt on the Michael Miller website.
  2. Cat Vintage Playing Cards by Cosmo Tex.  More stubby texture and a glorious colour and print. 
  3. Cityscape barkcloth from Hokkoh.  Slubby weighty cotton, great for bags, cushions and garments with a bit of structure.  I made a barkcloth skirt- see here.
  4. Meadow, Pink Orange, The Lovely Hunt, Lizzie House.  Deep saturated colour in this Lizzie House print on quilting cotton
  5. Maritime knit top (excellent pattern, hopefully fit my review in next week) from the gold version of this and it washes up beautifully in the machine.
  6. Double Gauze, Komorebi Blue Nani Iro by Naomi Ito for Kokka.  Amazing depth of colour in this beauty, Naomi Ito at her endless best. 
  7. Grey Stripe cotton jersey from Kiyohara.  Amazing quality fabric- look at the pic close up to get an idea of the weight, it has a bit of heft to it.  I've made a Maritime knit top (excellent pattern, hopefully fit my review in next week) from the gold version of this and it washes up beautifully in the machine. 
  8. Cat Vintage Matchbooks by Cosmo Tex.  Glorious print on a textured cotton- love the teal background and everything else about it.
  9. Cotton indigo dot, Robert Kauman.  Wide 57" floaty fabric- good for soft drapey effects, scarves or soft tops.
