A note about fabric choices for these designs...

Originally our designs were shown using marbled fabrics, a terrific choice if you have some on hand but certainly not the ONLY choice! We have altered most of our design images to reflect a wider, more generalized selection of fabrics.

These designs work very well with any fabric print as long as the pattern is fairly small (little flowers, swirls, etc) and the color is fairly uniform throughout. "Blenders" work especially well!!

Colors shown are intended just as suggestions - don't feel tied to them!
Faerie Lights - $11.50
