Did you ever get the chance to add the the Tula Pink Acacia Racoon print to your life in some shape or form? No? Same here. I completely missed the boat.
What’s more, a recent search for this elusive, rare and out of print fabric brought up a listing on etsy where it was up for grabs here in Australia at $100 per yard so yip, I’d say that boat has sailed far into the horizon.
So for those of you who have appreciation for Tula Pinks epic creative skills this emby design is from Urban Threads and I’ve only been meaning to stitch it out for just over a year now.
A lot of thought and consideration went into the colour scheme, it looked pretty complicated with the 17 colour changes and I really wanted to avoid browns especially when using the tie dye minky as the base. The finished result is a pretty close match to the original colour palette of the fabric and overall it turned out great.
After the 1 hour and 40 minutes stitch out time I’d say the colours came together pretty well. So far I have made only two of these minky cosmetic bags in pink and I think I will make another two in blue. So there it is, being able to use embroidery on projects this way with materials that I ACTUALLY have on hand is why I think machine embroidery is just so…..well….awesome!!! The list of restrictions becomes a little less lengthy and it’s actually a lot of fun working these ideas out.
If you ever have time, take a look at the UT online magazine. If you find a favourite that you’d like to see used in projects let me know!
Introducing a new store on Cloth Pad Shop Australia – Daisy & Bird!
“Daisy & Bird makes pads, breast pads, wet bags, and wipes.
I began investigating cloth pads when my eldest daughter began going through puberty, and I wanted a healthier and more environmentally sustainable way to deal with it right from the start, and having something pretty in your pants is way more fun 😉
I’m a mum to 3 (a teenage boy and 2 girls) who I homeschool. Sewing gives me some sanity, and helps to supplement our income. We currently live in Canberra.”
Introducing another new store to Cloth Pad Shop USA – Prairie Valley Cloth!
“Hey y’all – I’m Min – owner and operator of Prairie Valley Cloth. I make a little of everything fabric – focusing mainly on reusable items and custom items for all sizes and shapes. I have a mission statement of making everyone feel welcome and appreciated, so I try really hard to work with people to get them what they need, even if it means stepping outside the box – be that hard to find sizes, personalized items, gender neutral items. I try to never say no before thoroughly exploring all options available to make something happen. I’m somewhat known in my little corner of Facebook for being very size and gender friendly with my scrundies underwear and am always willing to go on a fabric search to find that certain “gotta have it” print.
A bit about me – I’m a stay at home, homeschooling mom of 3. My oldest just graduated highschool and my youngest is 15. I was an army wife for the first 16 years of my marriage, and am completely fine being a retired army wife now! We’ve lived all over the US and ended up settling in rural Kansas when my husband retired. We bought a 110 year old farmhouse and enjoy raising our kids and animals on good old country dirt and sunshine. Besides sewing I also love to read, cook and occasionally try my hand at fiction writing.
I’ve been sewing for 35+ years – starting with lace up cards under the quilt frame with my grandmother at her quilting bee, thru finishing the stuffed animal project in 8th grade home economics in the first week when it was supposed to take all semester. I love a new challenge and frequently try new things to see if its something other people might be interested in. Any questions, concerns, project ideas or requests – please feel free to contact me here or on my facebook group page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/585582324922211”
Introducing a new store to Cloth Pad Shop USA – SewEco Creations!
“I’m Khalilah from the United States. Joining the Cloth Pad Shop collaboration offers a place of community, a common area that liberates women and help them make healither choices.
In the beginning I started making pads for myself, later my daughter and then as a creative outlet. As my stash grew so did my desire to share my creations.
My store includes high quality multiple sizes uniquely made reusable cloth pads including a small assortment of pad wrappers and wet bags.
My favorite fabric to use is cotton woven because it comes in so many variations of colorful designs. Jersey and cotton blend knits are my second favorite for my heavier absorbent pads they help to quickly absorb moisture.”
Introducing a new store to Cloth Pad Shop Australia – Luna Darling!
“My name is Tara and I make modern and comfortable cloth menstrual pads! I have been making my own cloth pads since 2008. Luna Darling pads for eco-conscious ladies who don’t want to compromise on style. I have always found cloth pads to be so much better than store-bought ones, as they are softer, don’t retain as much heat and of course you get to collect the best prints!
My pads are all-in-one, so you can wash and wear them without fussing. **Australians pay no more than $3 postage!*** “
