Building the Fabric Stash

I found these toiles at Walmart. The circus toile is by Schumacher and feels divine to the touch. The yellow and red toile is Central Park by P. Kaufmann. I bought two yards of the Schumacher and one yard of the Kaufmann. Both fabrics are 54" wide. I'm tempted to go back and buy the rest of the circus toile. I have absolutely no idea what I'll use it for, but it's so beautiful and at $5.54 a yard it's a steal.

Speaking of toile, I found this awesome artist/dollmaker, Mimi Kirchner, who uses toile on her doll's bodies to represent tatoos. Here's a story and pictures of Mimi's tatooed dolls found on Mr. Peacock's blog.

Adding to the pattern stash as well, I recently acquired this purse pattern by J. Stern Designs. With its clean lines, it should lend itself to all kinds of creative embellishment.

I've also downloaded and printed this wonderful free purse pattern from oh, fransson. Check out her fantastic tutorials too.

As you can see, I've been spending a lot of time surfing the net and no time creating. Sometimes my creative urges can be completely satisfied in the beauty and inspiration of other peoples work.
