Welcome to the last Color Play Friday of the year!
It has been so much more fun than I had even hoped when Trina and I began a few months ago. I’m looking forward to many more palettes and bundles in the future!
More about Color Play Friday:
Trina from In An Otter Life and I created Color Play Friday one day after a nice trip to the fabric store together.
Here are the rules:
- Each week, Trina or I will select a picture from our joint Pinterest board. These are all pictures that one of us has taken on our adventures.
- We each create a palette using colors from that picture
- We then create a bundle of 5-8 fabrics that is inspired by that palette. They don’t have to be an exact match to our palette, and we can throw in contrasting or accent colors, but the bundle should look inspired by the palette.
- We don’t see anyone else’s palette or bundle before we post on Friday.
That’s it! It’s going to be so fun to see what we each come up with.
This week’s photo was taken at a shop called Kris Kringl in Leavenworth, WA. It was cool that Trina chose this picture this week, because I was just there yesterday! We drove through on our way to Coeur D’Alene and decided to go in and buy our annual family Christmas ornament.
Here are the fabrics I chose:
Bari J, Petals and Plume, Seeing Stars in Violet
Bari J, Millie Fleur, Rippples in Pink
Cotton and Steel Basics, Sprinkles in Summer Camp
Warner Brothers, Silly Snowman, Snowflakes in Royal Blue
Robert Kaufman, Metro Living, Circles in Turquoise
Makower UK, Wonderland Christmas, Cars
A note about scale:
While I believe scale is a very important part of fabric selection, the fabrics shown in my Color Play images are not always perfectly to scale. I do my best, by you should always double check scale before ordering!
Don’t forget to head over to In an Otter Life to see what Trina came up with and to Shimmy and More to see Steph’s bundle!
You can also head over to my Color Play Friday page to see my palettes and bundles from previous weeks.
We will be taking a couple weeks off to enjoy some holiday fun with our families, but be sure to come back on New Year’s Day of the next Color Play Friday!
Are you enjoying Color Play Friday? We’d love for you to get in on the fun and create your own Color Play post! You can create a bundle of fabric, select yarns or embroidery threads, or create a project inspired by our photo. Be sure to let Trina or I know so we can link up to you. You can get in contact with me via email, or by tagging me on Instagram.
I hope you can join us next week!
Happy Sewing, ~L
