Welcome to the Craft Buds stop on the Birch Fabrics Homestead by Emily Isabella blog hop! This new line of organic knit and cotton fabric features a gorgeous color palette and vintage-feel illustrations. I love the peachy pink and aqua with pops of mustard, gray and navy together. The cotton fabric I used has a lovely silky smooth feel to it, perfect for a baby or toddler dress.
The fabric book is made with the Homestead Patch number panel for the pages, Homestead Main as the outside cover, and Clouds Mint for the inside cover. The pages have 2 layers of muslin sandwiched inside to give them a little more bulk and keep the images from showing through to the other side. It’s just the right size for a baby to hold and chew!
Here you can see the full book page spreads(click the image for a larger view).
I also made a dress with Clouds Mint using Simplicity 1207, a vintage pattern Simplicity recently re-released. It’s a simple A-line dress with contrast top and tiny puffed sleeves. The scallops in the top of the dress match the clouds in the fabric perfectly and I love how the dress turned out with a vintage modern look.
