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 the baby I borrowed for this photo shoot :).
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.
