Sakura Flitting Mums by Robert Kaufman
Today I expect a shipment of new lining fabric (see photos posted) to be delivered. Can't wait! I get very excited over fabric as you can see. I like to line my handbags with cotton prints and really enjoy selecting which will look best with a particular handbag. I first fuse a lightweight interface to the fabric to give it more body and durability. The inside of a handbag needs to be as strong as the outside. Especially if you are like me and add way to much to your purse than you should!

Posted above is a gorgeous cotton print by Michael Miller. I just love his textiles! Since I am using cherry blossom appliques in my recent handbags I thought it would be perfect. I think it will look gorgeous lining a natural or oatmeal linen purse!

I love the floral design in the fabric posted above. I imagine it will look great against a oatmeal or khaki fabric. Perhaps olive green or burnt orange. I guess I'll have to wait until it's in my studio to know for sure!
