I love the seed packet fabric and have always loved the design of the old seed packets (and fruit box labels too!).

I think it would make a lovely apron but a pretty cool quilt or wall hanging would be possible too, I think?

As for your crinkled fabric, how about a tiered, peasant type skirt? Would that work?


See - that's why I ask questions on my blog! I never thought of a tiered skirt & I think that's a fab idea. :) Thanks, Robbyn!

The seed packet fabric *would* make a pretty cool summer apron. I might go that route since it would be quite a bit easier than making a wall hanging!


I always enjoy your posts because you have so many things to see. Now I want to go through my storage chest of fabrics and see what I have hiding in there that I've forgotten about.
I like the idea of a tiered skirt, also. There are some pretty cute patterns for those available.

I love that seed packet print, it is absolutly wonderful.


I started the first chicken, went on to the second and wouldn't you know - two different sizes. Same hook, everything was in the car overnight. Go figure. I'll just keep going, planned on making two sets anyway. I can match them on the next one. I hope!
