Just a hint of granola.
Meaning I like natural fibers in natural colors.
I love environmentally friendly textiles, like Fox Fibre.
I like leaves prints or leaf shapes. I like earth tones.
How then is it that vinyl is also a love?
Man-made plastic is quite far removed from all I've just described.
Maybe it reminds me of the shiny burgundy patent leather shoes I so dearly loved in third grade. I don't know. I just think sewing vinyl is fun.
At least the clear vinyl is fun.
You can buy clear vinyl in fabric stores under the heading "table covers".
Some people also use it for book covers, baby bibs, and beach bags.
Check out this "futuristic" apron pattern from 1966.
This must have really been avant garde at that time.
Or this tres chic tunic from 1973
Or the funky food dome from this accessories pattern, 1967
Come on, that's fun, right?
I think so.
I just made an apron with vinyl accents. I hope CPS Magazine sees fit to publish it. We'll see...
