We just received a lovely email from a special someone.
Caroline is one of those people who you know in blogland, and also have the marvelous pleasure of seeing around real-land as well. It's so nice to see a familiar smile, and to have a fabric connection with someone!
Caroline was the lucky winner of our giveaway last year. She's also a blog follower of Selvedge House, Craft Laboratory and Petalplum. The prize we sent out was some of our pear fabric printed onto the berry hemp. Delicious.
Combined with some natural unprinted fabric, Caroline has made a beautiful little notebook cover. This looks, to me, to be a unique design - I love that little flap on, and the strip to hold pages in place. If hemp fabric lasts as long as my customers have told me (you know those lovely older ladies you meet at markets, who say they've had beautiful soft hemp sheets for 30+ years), then I can foresee lots and lots of important and witty notes being jotted down in this booklet.
I totally agree, Caroline, about how the hemp feels soft and buttery like your favourite pair of jeans. It's such a delicious fabric to sew with.
Thank you for sending these photos through, Caroline. We love seeing your creations using our fabric.
* PS - there'll be more fabric listed on our webstores when I get back from my NZ holiday.
