I am so excited to be today’s stop on the True Colors Blog Tour. Last week I shared that a sneak peek of the True Colors Fabric Collection. That fabric was on my cutting table for most of the day staring at me before I got the nerve to make the 1st cut.
Does that moment of hesitation ever happen to you? It’s not often for me but these fabrics are just so pretty and perfect that I did not want to mess up! In the end, I was determined to create something that would showcase the collection within my everyday world, an ironing board cover. We all know just how important ironing and pressing is to our sewing projects and this baby is always in use.
The fabrics I used to recover my ironing board were designed by Anna Maria Horner. They are only part of the True Colors fabric collection from FreeSpirit. The collection offers a wide range of versatile blenders created by 4 fantastic designers. Each designer brings their own unique aesthetic to the collection with five different prints offered in 4 color pallets. Together, they an assortment that is sure to become a much-loved favorite among the sewing community. (they’ve already won me over!)
But don’t just take my word for it, check out what fun projects these seamstresses are creating during the True Colors blog tour. The line up is incredible.
