Fabric Friday – Scandi Textil

IMG_3305

This fabulously colourful fabric came from Åhléns a great department store in Sweden.  I fell in love with this fabric, when I saw a lady with it in a queue to pay. I quickly found it and only once I was home I realised, it in fact was not a metre of fabric or a fat quart but a cushion cover…

Yet this did not stop me, and I got cutting into the cushion and started using the fabric for appliqué projects.

I felt the colours were beautiful and earthy and the pattern simple but pretty. This fabric is very Swedish which, is one of the many reasons why I liked it so much.

Åhléns is a good place to buy fabric (not just cushion covers) I have bought many over fabrics from their stores, which I am sure will be a feature in a Friday to come.

I have not used this fabric on many projects as of yet, but one of my favourites and in-keeping with hoop fever is this appliqué dala horse:

Easy hand embroidery flowers bring out colours in the fabric.

Happy Stitching!
