Can’t Hardly Wait

I have some of this fabric coming my way:

Echino_glasses_green 

I'm sure you can see (ha!) why I'm really looking (ha!) forward to it. 

If you want some, too, it's all over Etsy. I grabbed this image from Kallistiquilts

I haven't sewn with Echino before — anything I should watch out for? Not quite sure what this will be yet, either.

I love that!

I have some Echino, but not decorator weight fabric. What I have (double gauze) has sewn up really nicely, but I had to watch carefully for raveling edges.

Adorable fabric…Do these glasses match yours, Erin?

Cute!

Is there a cat’s eye version? I wear glasses in that style and would LOVE fabric with them on.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t that make a lovely Heidi? ;o)

I saw that fabric a while ago (quilt market in May, I think all over blogland) and I did think you’d like it. Fab colour of green too!

Given it’s the heavier weight (linen blend?) cotton, I’d say a skirt.

You will look (!) fab in it!

Do you have those glasses in your collection?

Cheers,
AJ

I made a blouse of the linen blend Echino. While it makes a great looking top it is a bit scratchy to wear. Ann

I really had a pair of white nerd glasses like these when I was nursing school back in the 80′s!

(er… maybe I shouldn’t be so proud of that fact….)

Oh, cool! How large is the print? This reminds me of a project I did last year where I silkscreened big white sunglasses onto a green dress for a local arts auction. Pic here:

That is so cute! I can see it on throw pillows.

be careful Echino fabric is very additive.

I love the decorator weight Echino! I’ve made nice pleated skirts with wide waistbands and I think it sews up nicely. It’s a bit heavy for a top or full dress, though.

This just arrived in our boutique last week and it’s delicious. It’s not as heavy as you think it would be. We also ordered the laminated version – tres chic raincoats!

My wonderful friend Patricia sent me to you, as I have I Great Appreciation for Craft ~_^

I’m checking out some of your fabrics and assuming you have good resources for fabric in general: I was in Mexico this winter and saw a lot of great stuff I’d like to find here, if you can advise or direct!

Day of the Dead skeletons, large roses, skulls, the Virgin of Guadalupe, hot peppers, Frida Khalo, sacred hearts, sombreros, avocadoes, dancing girls…
