Every time I start a new colorway series for my purses, I get the immense pleasure of hunting through my stash for a few dozen minutes to compile fabric that goes well together and compliments each other. Usually a stop when I have about a grocery bag full, as I can usually get 6-10 purses out of that much fabric.
This time, however, I believe I ended up with 3 very full grocery bags worth. I just couldn't resist all the beautiful different shades of green. I used the different frog fabrics in the last picture as my inspiration for what fabrics to pull. The first two pictures show all of the fabrics piled high on my drafting table in my workspace. Most of the fabrics are scraps that range between 2x2 inches to an uncut half yard. However, there are a couple of larger pieces in there as well.
I'm just your average sewing nut who delights in all kinds of fabric. I collect scraps of all kinds of fabric, no matter how small. Getting a new box of upholstery samples, or seeing a really awesome trim on sale, are some of my lifes great pleasures. I usually work in the live theatre industry constructing costumes and stage manging. I also make some of the scraps that I have collected into purses for sale at www.byladyt.etsy.com and www.byladyt.com
