Printed linens

Check out this sweet new group of prints in linen/cotton blends.

These butterfly fabrics are available both as a linen blend and as a cotton broadcloth.  We also have the multicolored butterfly print on a lovely lightweight cotton lawn.

I love a nice print, but the light weight and crisp hand of so many printed fabrics designed for quilting is not always right for garments, so it's nice to see a beautiful print in a more versatile weight.  The heavier weight of the linen fabrics makes them ideal for more structured garments, such as simple dresses or straight skirts.  They'd also be great for handbags, cushions, or any project where you'd like a little more body.

We have many, many more prints in linen/cotton blends in the store, ready for spring!
