Ah, this fabric! When I ordered it, I had no idea what “cotton dobby” was, but I am really pleased with it. Good thing, too *whew* since I bought a whole bolt. It’s from Kokka and is about the weight of Amy Butler’s decorator-weight Nigella fabric. Perfect for a diaper bag or two. I learned from the trunk show at my local quilt shop that bags look much better if they’re hanging. And a wreathe hanger like this one from Target is perfect for this bag. And necessary if you visit your quilt shop and find that your shop sample is looking all deflated after weeks of just sitting on a table.
Since I started wholesaling patterns, 90% of my sewing feels like it is taken up making shop samples. Sorta fun, but doesn’t leave a whole lot of new stuff to blog about. On my list now, are 2 shop patchfolios.
I’ve also heard from a reliable source that Timtex is no longer being manufactured! Can you hear me sobbing, “How can this b-e-e-e!” The car organizer is built around Timtex. So I’m off to find a substitute and hoping in the meantime that the Timtex people change their mind. Please, oh please, change your mind!!!
