Rifle Paper Co. Les Fleurs ~a Cotton & Steel Dream~


Hi Everyone!

I've been scarce around here this summer, it's always just too crazy for posting and sewing.

I will be back once the summer is over and the kids return back to school at the end of August (so far awayyyyyy).

I got some wonderful new fabric this past week that I cannot wait to start working with as soon as this month is over.

My main favorite fabric line now available is Les Fleurs!


I plan on making a quilt with it but also have been stitching up some adorable little pouches.


I'm picking my favorite print and pairing it with some Essex Metallic Linen

The little tassels I purchased off Etsy really complete the cute factor.

I'm planning on making a pile of these and trying them out in my Etsy shop. I'm nervous though. Has anyone here opened up a handmade shop? I'm afraid no one will buy...or they will buy and hate it. I don't know maybe I"m not ready for this step yet.  If anyone has any tips on a handmade business please let me know in the comments or send me an email. :)

I can't wait to take this little pouch out in the world and show off the beautiful fabric Rifle Paper Co. has created.
