Today's project hits all my happy buttons. Not only do I get to kick off the Paperie Blog Tour, but I get to share a project with you that involves so many of my favorite things:
1. adorable fabric that is inspired by both vintage style and classic literature
2. simple patchwork
3. a small but useful item
4. stationery and office supplies
Is it any wonder I'm smiling today?
I was so thrilled when Amy asked me to be part of the tour to celebrate the release of her Paperie collection for Art Gallery Fabrics. As you know from the EPP kit I shared with you last month, I had already purchased a fat quarter bundle of Paperie before she sent me more for this project. These prints are just the sweetest. I love the light colors, the vintage yet modern vibe, the quotes from some of my all-time favorite stories. Is there anyone out there who can resist Jane Eyre and Pride & Prejudice? Not this girl...
I had originally planned to make a Constance Organizer, but lately it's been so fun to shrink some of my old tutorials down to smaller, cuter versions of themselves. This little Stationery Kit absolutely stole my heart when it was finished, and now I want to make a whole lot more of these...so yes, a tutorial is probably coming soon. My favorite part is probably that little envelope on the inside -- just the perfect size for stamps, paper clips, or even little love notes.
