So if you've been hanging around here for a while, then you might know that Anna Maria Horner's "LouLouThi" collection is not a new collection, but at the same time, one definitely worthy of showing off.
I wanted to feature this collection at the show for several reasons...
of course, I've ranted and raved about the fabulous ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons that coordinate with this collection. I've actually added a few new ribbons that are great for summer sewing projects.
Did you happen to notice the cross stitch fabrics in the upper and lower corner of this pillow? No, I didn't spend hours before the show hand stitching this, but used fabric from Anna's "Needleworks" collection (found here and here).
This fabric is so versatile and can be used in so many ways... what's not to love? Yes, one can actually hand stitch it, or use like a normal patchwork fabric, as a border on a skirt, or pillow... I really could go on and on.
Check out the very first photo in the post again... did you also happen to notice the super fantastic bag in the lower right hand corner?... yeah, also made with the Needleworks fabric using AMH's new Art Student Tote pattern. (if I get some time, then I'll try to show you more detail)
Another addition to the LouLouThi line is this absolutely delicious Voile fabric. This is so light, buttery, and soft... if you are anything like me and have to touch everything as you walk through the stores, then this is the fabric for you! This comes in two equally as delicious colorways... sherry and forrest.
Well now, you certainly didn't think that was all, did you? More to come this week!
