The Victorian Dresses Fabric Collection


You  know by now that I LOVE Victorian fashions - especially the dresses and that I LOVE designing handmade Victorian dolls and creating Victorian e-patterns and patterns so you can create Victorian dolls of your own.

I also love designing fabrics.  So, I thought why not create some Victorian dress fabrics that could be used for Victorian, shabby chic and cottage home decor as well as fabric for Victorian doll dresses, doll quilts, etc.

There are twenty seven designs in my new Victorian Dress Fabrics Collection.  All twenty seven match the dresses in our handmade penny rug Victorian dress pictures collection and our Victorian Dresses picture or ornaments e-patterns collection as well as our Victorian Cut and Sew Dress Fabric Collection

I hope you like my new Victorian Dress Fabrics Collection:

My NEW The Victorian Dress Cut and Sew Fabric Collection


I have been in love with Victorian fashions - especially the dresses since I was a little girl.  That's one of the reasons why I decided to create handmade Victorian dolls and then create Victorian e-patterns and patterns so you could create your own.

I also love creative embroidery, crazy quilting, and designing fabrics.  So, I thought why not create some Victorian cut and sew fabrics so you can embellish them and create beautiful Victorian dress ornaments of you own.

There are ten designs in my new Victorian Cut and Sew Dress Ornaments Fabric Collection.  All ten match the dresses in our handmade penny rug Victorian dress pictures collection and our Victorian Dresses picture or ornaments e-patterns collection.   Four of the dress ornaments are 3" and six dress ornaments  are 6".  All are easy ti make and can be embellished with beads, ribbons, lace, etc. to match our finished dress suggestion or anyway you'd like.

I hope you like my new Victorian Cut and Sew Dress Ornaments Fabric Collection:

New Fabrics For The Holiday and Seasonal Fabric Collection

 

I have to say that I'm a person with many crafts interests - most of which I just LOVE doing. Whether it's sewing, making dolls, creating floral arrangements, creating and decorating paper crafts, pattern designing, or just plain crafting in general I just LOVE it. I can spend hours on end blissfully doing whatever suits my fancy at the time. Some of my interests have been around since I was a little girl - some are relatively new like needle felting, paper clay designing, crazy quilting and creative embroidery and fabric design.

The latter is where I've been focusing a lot of my attention lately. I just LOVE designing fabrics that are delightful, cheery and can be used for all sorts of decorating.

Lately I've been adding to my Holiday and Seasonal Fabric Collection. It started with wanting to create some bright and cheery Spring and Summer floral designs that I could use to replace the shower curtain and window curtain in one of my bathrooms and went on from there.

I designed some new fabrics for the Fall, which should be no surprise as it's almost upon us and is my favorite seasonal after all. From there I went on to new Halloween fabrics and then on to the winter. I added some new tree designs and a mini quilt design with trees, an alpaca, and a snowman.

I hope you like the new additions to my Holiday and Seasonal Fabric Collection:

Linda’s How-Do-I Series? How To Make Our Alpacas Rock, Babies Splashing In The Rain, It’s Raining Baby Boys, and It’s Raining Baby Girls Custom Fabric Wall Panel Picture New Free E-Book


I just love custom fabric.  Especially when it can be used to make quick and easy picture decorations and was so pleased with the way my Babies In The Pumpkin Patch Wall Panel Picture came out that when I was designing my Babies Splashing In the Rain Fabric Collection and Alpacas Rock Fabric Collection I decided to create several baby fabrics and one alpaca fabric that could be used to create several custom fabric panel pictures.

Last week I finally had some time to create some and decided to start with my Alpacas Brown Panel Fabric which creates a 9” by 12” custom fabric wall panel decoration. It was very easy to make so I proceeded to make my Babies Splashing In The Rain  Fabric Panel Small, my It’s Raining Baby Boys Fabric Panel, and my It’s Raining Baby Girls Fabric Panel.

Since I was making them anyway I decided to create an e-book tutorial showing you how I made the Alpacas Rock Custom Fabric Panel Picture. All four of the custom fabric panel pictures are made the same way. They just use different size fabrics and different size cotton canvases so follow this tutorial for each of them.

Linda’s How-Do-I Series? How To Make My Flower Panel Fabric Picture - NEW Free E-Book



I have been anxious to use my flower picture large panel fabric design for a few months. With Spring finally arriving I decided it was time to create my “Flower Panel Flower Picture.”

I had decided to frame my fabric picture in a finished frame as I wanted to hang it as a picture in one of my bathrooms. So, I chose a finished gold frame that I had used for some press flower pictures I had created years ago that were faded now. I thought the gold frame was perfect for the cheery flower fabric. I also thought a dark teal blue 16” by 20” mat with 11” by 14” opening would be a perfect compliment to my flower fabric picture. I had also decided ahead of time that I wanted to add some dimension to my picture and thought a few silk ribbon flower heads would be perfect for that.

Here’s how I made my picture:

SUPPLIES NEEDED

Fat Quarter Flower Picture - Large Panel Fabric - http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1520850
16" by 20" Finished Picture Frame
16” by 20” Mat With 11” by 14” Opening - Teal Blue
Quilt Batting - 16” by 20”
3/4” Cream Colored Silk Ribbon Flowers - 5
16” by 20” Heavy Cardboard, Poster Board, or Foam Board
16” by 20” Piece Heavy Cardboard (If Necessary)
Masking Tape
16” by 20” Heavy Stock Paper For Backing
Double Sided Tape
Pencil
Glue Gun and Hot Glue
Picture Hanger With Saw Teeth
Nail (for Hanging Picture On wall)
Hammer

DIRECTIONS

1) Measure around the fat quarter flower picture - large panel fabric so it evenly measures 16” by 20” and then draw a line around it with a pencil. Make sure there is the same amount of spacing on the vertical and horizontal sides of the flower picture - large panel fabric.

2) Cut the 16” by 20” flower picture - large panel fabric out along the pencil lines you just drew.

3) Cut a piece of the quilt batting 14” by 18”.

4) Apply the double sided tape along all the edges of the 16” by 20” heavy cardboard, poster board, or foam board.

5) Center and lay the 14” by 18” piece of quilt batting on top of the 16” by 20” heavy cardboard, poster board, or foam board.

6) Center and tape the 16” by 20” flower panel fabric picture evenly to the 16” by 20” heavy cardboard, poster board, or foam board and on top of the 14” by 18” quilt batting.

7) Apply hot glue to the backs of the 5 cream colored silk floral and glue them to the front of the flower panel fabric picture as shown in the locations below:


8) Put the 16” by 20” teal blue mat inside the picture frame.

9) Put the flower panel fabric picture glued to the heavy cardboard, poster board, or foam board inside the picture frame and behind the mat making sure the picture is centered properly.

10) If the heavy cardboard, poster board, or foam board is not flush with the depth of the frame add a 16” by 20” piece of cardboard(s) until it is.

11) Tape the back of the heavy cardboard, poster board, foam board or cardboard piece you may have added to the back side of the frame with masking tape.

12) Apply the double sided tape along all the back edges of the 16” by 20” frame.

13) Cut a piece of the heavy stock paper 16” by 20”" for the backing.

14) Tape the heavy stock paper to the back of the frame so that it is evenly spaced on the back .

15) Center the picture hanger with saw teeth in the center of the top of the picture frame back and then hammer it to fasten it.

16) Hammer the nail into the wall where you want to hang your flower panel fabric picture and then hang your picture on the nail.

Dollie Storage Room Fabric Collection


The "Dollies" just love having fun and love seeing pictures of themselves so they were delighted when I created graphics of some of them. Of course, they all wanted graphics created for them, but I had to draw the line somewhere. So, I choose a few of the "dollies" to create graphics for and to design fabrics for. There will be more for the Dollie Storage Room Dolls Fabric Line in the near future.

For now there are 21 fabrics in my the Dollie Storage Room Dolls Fabric Line.  Some of the fabrics were created using the same graphics but using a different design schemes such as basic, half-drop, half-brick, centered, or mirror images and  by making the images smaller or larger.  Here's the images used to create the Dollie Storage Room Dolls Fabric Line so far:

  

  

  

  

  

  

The Dollie Storage Room Fabrics are perfect for making doll clothes, decorations, ornaments, pillows, quilts, wall art, totes, table linens, etc.  The "dollies" and I are working on ideas and suggestions for using our fabrics and hope to have lots of ideas for you in the near future.

The "dollies" are all clamoring for their own fabric lines. However, we have way to many dollies for that to happen, but there will be more in the near future so stay tuned.

My Love Of Custom Fabric Pinterest Board




I LOVE designing custom fabric and love browsing Pinterest to see all the wonderful eye candy. So, of course, I decided to set-up a "My LOVE of Custom Fabric" Pinterest board.

I added the Pinterest widget to the sidebar of my "Linda Walsh Originals Fabric Designs" blog so you can view my latest pins when ever you visit my blog.

I'm sure I'll be adding more and more fabric to my board over time and hope you like it.
