Mix {fabric inspiration}

This is one of those themes that the more you think about it you realise there's so many possibilities but if you're a little stuck here's some fabric inspiration for the theme 'mix'.

My first thought (and I know others thought the same!) was mixtapes, those wonderful mixes people made on cassettes way back when.

The kitchen is a great place to mix, maybe make something to help you around the kitchen or something decorative like this cute Mixing it Up pattern.

There must be a way of creating a remix, perhaps using something over again? An old WIP turned into something new? It's an excuse for me to show the remix print ;)

Of course it's simple to create a project using a mix of different fabric styles or designers, like Lee Heinrich's Blogger's Choice Bundle.

You could mix colours or textures, like in this color wheel fabric.

Or a nice mix of fonts with these Sewing Studio Words and Black Chalkboard Words.

I hope that's shown you the scope of the possibilities!

Join us on 15th October to link up your finished 'mix' makes and a random chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. If you're new you can read all about le challenge here.

How are your projects coming along?


  1. I totally thought "mix tape" at first. Ahh memories! Our poor kids will never understand... :(

  2. I finished my mixed project. Can't wait to share :)

  3. I wanted to jump on the mixed-tape bandwagon, too. But I have something different up my sleeve -- here's hoping I can finish it in time! : )
