Around the world with your new travel bag17:01
Today we’re posting some colour and fabric inspiration to give you a little bit of sewing motivation. Not that we don’t know you think of sewing all the time. We had fun today daydreaming about the places our new Nappy Bag (or Weekend Bag? :) could make itself useful!
Our first stop was Marrakech, with it’s golden dunes and colourful streets, it’s sensuous spices and mysterious, intricate patterns. Our fabric choice was this Liberty fabric from Susan’s SewBox.
We then travelled to Lisbon, where we had a pastel de nata, took a tram ride and looked at the ocean and the beautiful tiling catching your eye everywhere you looked. The featured fabric is also a Liberty print from the same shop.
Last but not least, since we still had enough time in the day (hey, daydreaming is still the fastest way to travel known to man!) we stopped for a few minutes under the cherry trees in Tokyo, just breathing in and breathing out and enjoying the freshness of the air and the joyfulness of everyone around. We picked this Liberty print fabric for the trip.
What about you? How do you get inspired when you sew?
