As I mentioned in my last blog, inspiration can happen at any time!
And sometimes a designer creates a pattern and a fabric designer creates a fabric that goes together without even planning it!
Blank Quilting has this really retro cute fabric called, “Rock Around the Clock”.
While visiting Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill today I found they had a pattern from designer Sassafras Lane called, “Bubba Bowling Bag”.
Wouldn’t this fabric be really cute made up in the Bowling Bag pattern?
I was told that people are making the pattern and carrying it as an arm purse, not necessarily carrying their bowling ball in it! The style of the purse is a flat bottom and ample space to carry things with a zipper closure. I would love to see this pattern made up with this fabric! Available in both grey and pink background, it would be cute with either one.
The other fabrics in this line would be fun to use too. I especially like the black background with the restaurant signs which remind me of neon lights. Wouldn’t it make a great border with all these colors in it?
And what poodle owner could resist the pink fabric with the silhouetted poodles?
Truly, this line of “Rock Around the Clock “ has so much potential! I hope you can see it in a store near you soon!
