Fabric combinations

Hallo everyone,
This morning I found this bird.


Not to expensive, so I spoiled myself.

In my fabriccloset I have a box with fabric combinations,


some I bought myself


some were a gift

Well, I do not know if you recognize this,
but often I take a set in my hands and think

022 015

"now I'm going to use them"
then a few minutes later,
after feeling and looking at the fabrics,


I put them back to wait for an even better idea...
But I do enjoy looking and feeling my lovely little fabric combinations!
Like I love making and searching combinations for new bags.

Have a lovely weekend everyone,

  1. Hi Heleen, I am one of your newest followers and must say that I do the same myself. I just love to look and feel the texture of my fabrics and dream about what they will look like made up and often put them back again in their piles!

  2. YUM! Love those fabrics AND that bag!! And what is it with those of us (like ME AND you) that we just can't bring ourselves to put these beautiful fabrics in a quilt---and call it THE PERFECT PATTERN IDEA for those fabrics??? LOL

  3. Hi, I'm a new follower too and I have to tell you that, there's something special at your blog - I guess that your colour combinations (in your works and in your fabrics, in everything) just speak to me. Love your blog :)

  4. Oh, these are making me drool. Lovely!! I don't have a fabric close yet... just a corner of the closet :-)
    Have a great weekend, Esther.

  5. Love the bird...wonderful! Your bags are perfection...what a talent you are!

  6. Ja hoor, heel herkenbaar! Ik heb een paar lades vol stofjes, sommigen eht nog nooit gebruikt, maar alleen al het kijken ernaar geeft veel plezier!
    Er zijn ergere dingen toch???
    Heel fijn weekend!
    Oh en mooie tas weer!

  7. Wat een mooi vogeltje.
    Tja, de voorraad lapjes doorkijken en aaien is een hele fijne bezigheid. Er komen dan vaak mooie ideeën op.
    De tas ziet er weer prachtig uit.

  8. Heel herkenbaar , soms is het gewoon heel fijn om nog even verder te dromen wat je er van gaat maken.
    fijn weekend,

  9. Ja hoor, gebeurt hier ook regelmatig..
    Gewoon even bij elkaar leggen, voelen en combineren. En dan denken..neuh..nog maar even bewaren ;)
    groetjes en een fijn weekend!

  10. I love the bird you found, super cute. The fabric color combinations are wonderful, can't wait to see the end products....you will have to share!
