Designer Spotlight: Half Dozen Daily

Part of the reason I have this site is to share all of the inspiring and creative things YOU’RE doing. Yeah, I’m talking to you! Inspiration is contagious, and the web is full of awesome DIY crafts, home makers, expert designers, you name it.  So I stumbled on this next designer on Twitter and thought our community would appreciate her work and creativity, I know I do!

So Carla Peicheff runs a homemaker blog called My 1/2 Dozen Daily where she posts a variety of her crafty sewing projects, her photography portfolio, and other recipes and tutorials everybody can benefit from. But what made Carla stand out, was her fabric selection for some of her sewed creations. Let’s just say, I’m Impressed… ha!

Carla has been using bundles of my Impressions fabrics to sew some really cool and useful items including multipurpose pouches, pot holders, placemats, crochet craft caddies… the list goes on.  I’ve seen a ton of things made out of my fabrics, but these are definitely unique and true to the crafting community.

I really like how Carla combined two different fabric patterns for the outside and inside of these pouches. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been able to see the positive and negative in an image. It works the same when I’m creating color combinations for my fabrics. I’m always striving to reach cohesive collections in both color palette and pattern.

Shout out to Carla for being inspired by my fabrics, so stoked to see how you’ve made them your own! And thanks for the features in your blog!
