Look what rocked up in my mailbox this week…
It’s no secret that I love Ink & Spindle. Do you know it? It’s where Tegan Rose and Lara Cameron create the most beautiful screen-printed fabrics over in their studio in Kensington, Melbourne, and I’m a huge fan. I’ve made many a bag for myself including this and this and this pouch and this earphones-pod using their stunning fabrics, and I have a little stash I’ve collected for making some of my new clothes later this year.
A little while ago, Tegan created a Pozible fundraiser to help her get to Mexico to study, and of course, without hesitation, I contributed.
I’d forgotten about what I’d been promised by my level of contribution, so when this parcel arrived in the mail, I was so surprised! I thought I was simply getting a lovely postcard or something, which would have been special enough, but I am so over the moon in love with this beautiful piece of deliciousness. Here’s a little note the Teegs put in, giving details of the fabric…
Now, I wonder what it will become – part of a skirt for summer? Or the front of a Victoria Blazer perhaps? Or possibly the front of a little Sorbetto tank? Hmmm… lots of possibilities.
THANKS SO MUCH TEEGS! I ADORE IT!!!
Oh, and if you’d like to get yourself some of this pretty fabric, sorry but, as you can read, this colourway was a special for those of us who supported Teegs to go to Mexico. Did you happen to notice (as I just did!) that the Flores colourway will fit in perfectly with the fabrics I already have from Ink & Spindle? I must clearly love these colours, huh. I’m sure I also equally adore their other colours, but there you go!
Anyway, the good news is that Flores will apparently be in the Ink & Spindle shop in a different colourway soon, so if you like it, keep an eye out for it!
