The joy of pot luck parcels

Sometimes it's nice to take a risk and leave your fabric selection fate in the hands of someone else. When I ordered some fabric from Abakhan the other day I decided to try out one of their cushion fabric bundles - 5 metre long pieces of 5 different cushion/upholstery fabrics - perfect for bag making I thought...and oh what lovely pieces I got:


A large-ish flower pattern...

A large piece with an equally large vine/ivy patten...

A charming bright flower pattern on lightweight fabric...

A wavy geometric pattern...

And some ducks and hens...



While the animals are slightly off the wall (although I can see them looking great on a tote bag!) I love the flowers and am already designing bags & peg bags in my head!

And once I've used them all up, I might have to order another bag...
