When Cotton + Steel announced that their first guest designer was going to be Rifle Paper Co. last year, it seemed like the day would never come for the fabric to finally be released. The time is now and I’m so excited! Like many people, I’ve loved Rifle Paper Co products forever. The idea that I’m going to be able to sew with these gorgeous designs is pretty inspiring.
Our delivery will be arriving very soon and we’ve just posted our pre-order sale at the workroom. Who else is obsessing over what they are going to do with this collection? There are 13 quilting cotton prints – so definitely there is a Rifle Paper quilt in my future. There are 5 cotton/linen canvas prints – perfect for bags, pillows, curtains, structured garments and accessories. Personally, I’d love to cover a chair with one of them. There are also 4 Cotton Lawn Prints (flamingos!) and 3 Rayon prints. So, definitely a fun floral dress, some cute t-shirts and tops. Maybe some cute dark floral pants?!
I’m sharing my photos of the actual fabric samples I ordered from. In person these fabrics are really special and the colours are perfect. I just keep scrolling through and trying to narrow down my choices, but who am I kidding? I kinda need it all. I can’t wait to splash out on this collection and surround myself in this floral dream.
