Sometimes you find a fabric that you just have to buy… and then there’s a sudden rush to find the perfect project! I love the latest range of fabrics by Amy Butler, and luckily there are plenty of Amy Butler patterns to choose from.
The Alchemy fabrics look stunning lined up together on the shelf! The difficult decision comes when you have to select a project to make with this fantastic range. If you’re short of ideas though, there’s a variety of Amy Butler patterns to browse. There’s such a diverse range of patterns and colours in this collection of fabrics so there’s something to suit every type of project. Larger prints work best with larger projects to make the most of the full design. If you’re making a small project, select a fabric with a more intricate pattern.
When I spotted the Fountain Flora fabric from the Amy Butler Alchemy range, I had to make something! I created a phone case and used stranded cotton to sew chunky stitches by hand as a feature. I embellished the detail of the patterned fabric with running stitch and then added a decorative hem with back stitch. This fabric would work brilliantly for a cushion or these cute Gum Drop Pillows too. It’s a really versatile pattern and is also available in Rosebud.
Amy says: “I designed Alchemy around the idea of transformation, and infusing elements of nature with exciting colour and vivid graphic stories. My vision is to achieve a lovely chemistry of print, colour, and texture”. Visit her website for a video tour of the fabric range and an inspiration gallery, as well as free Amy Butler patterns for a beautiful quilt or a cushion using the full Alchemy collection.
