How to Sew a Notebook or Journal - sewing tutorial video from MADE Everyday

Which do you love more?—paper or fabric?
I know. I know.  Fabric is probably my first crush.  But the variety of paper these days?!  There are so many amazing prints, textures, and materials to choose from!
(Thank you for that, scrapbooking world).

Like….sewing them? YES!

BLUSH fabric collection

You guys!  My new fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics is here!
And I’m blushing to tell you about it…
It’ll make you blush?  Just blush it on?
Okay. I’ll stop.

But really, I’m so excited to share this with you!

Blush fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabrics designed by Dana Willard

The collection is called—BLUSH.
And if I had to say, this collection feels the most like “me” so far.  Not that I don’t love my fabric-children equally. But I’ve always had a love for simple shapes and designs.  And that’s what you get here.

BLUSH has a retro-modern vibe, with large florals, small florals, modern shapes, and—(wait for it)—cats!

Yesssss.
The Cat Nap print might be my favorite in the batch (and it comes in knit too!)
(blushing smile emoji)

There are some unexpected, and expected colors in the mix.

And this Dutch Bloom is the design that sort of started it all.  I created the flower, repeated the pink and orange out of that thing, and made it large scale.  Mmmm.  Pretty symmetry in a line:

As I continued creating more designs I kept coming back to the color pink—particularly blush pink.
And I thought, maybe I should just call the collection BLUSH.
Haah.
No wait, maybe I should call it blush?!
And that was that.

In the collection there are: 16 quilting cottons , 3 knits, and 1 rayon.
