Fabric find: metro cafe

How cute is this new fabric from Robert Kaufmann?! There’s a whole Metro Cafe range based around coffee pots, coffee cups and coffee beans (of course) by Suzy Ultman, an American illustrator who has created a whole world of cuteness and has recently turned her attention to fabric design. I think I can see some apron-making in my future…

    Hi Eileen

    Very cute fabric! I read a passage today in The Distant Hours by Kate Morton that reminded me of you. Here it is:

    ‘It was one of the pinafores Saffy had sewn when Merry first arrived; made from a lovely piece of Liberty fabric ordered years ago, not because Saffy had a project in mind, but because it was simply too beautiful not to possess. It had languished ever since in the sewing cupboard, waiting patiently for Saffy to find it a purpose. And now she had.’

    Can you see why it reminded me of you? 🙂

    Also, just so you know I unsubscribed via email because I’m managing all of my blog subscriptions through Google Reader now.

      What a beautiful quote! One day I’ll get some Liberty fabric, but in the meantime I’m not short of other pieces just waiting for the right project…
