Are you in love with Aviary Too?!

This gorgeous bundle of textured goodness arrived at my doorstep this morning and I have been fondling it ever since!


Aviary 2 fabrics


It is of course Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry, and is destined to become two handbags… one for a friend and one for moi! I just need to decide on a pattern, but will most likely go with the Swing Bag by Amy Butler – it’s such a great pattern for showcasing a feature fabric!


I am in the midst of writing patterns at the moment. Nothing to show for a while yet but lots going on behind the scenes! I’ve also been re-organising my sewing space and making my new desk look pretty. I’ll show your the before and after once I’ve completed the ‘after’… but in the meantime here is a little vignette…


Desk vignette 1



Until next time – I hope your days are filled with much happiness and stitching!


Hugs! Vikki xx Smile

That fabric is SO PRETTY - it will look great on a swing bag! I can't wait to see your pretty new space, and I'm very glad to hear you're writing patterns, gorgeous girl!

Good luck with writing those de-structions Vik. Oh how we all hate that part of the pattern designing. Looking forward to seeing your new designs.

The fabrics look so pretty Vik and I love the little corner of your desk with the jars of buttons. Its going to look really pretty....maybe you might have to paint all the boys power cords to pretty colours so they wont look out of place :) Hugs sweetie Vicki xxx
