I thought I’d devote my first post on ‘fabrics I love’ to the Garden Wall range by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller Fabrics. When I first discovered the range I just couldn’t resist and have made a few of my bags from some of the designs. The patterns are very unique and look almost like paintings on the fabric. There is a great range of colour combinations to choose from too – three complete colour palettes; sky, indigo and olive. As well as the designs being absolutely adorable, the fabric itself is great to work with. It’s a very good quality, medium weight cotton with a lovely soft handle.

My next favourite from this range is the Garden Carpet design which is available in a few different colour-ways; navy, sky and multi. They go perfectly with the Painter’s Canvas collection, again in a number of shades to match. I made another handbag and matching tri-fold wallet from this selection, in gorgeous shades of blue, olive-green and yellow.
