I have been peeping at Lizzy Dish sales... is that weird? Anyway I noticed that peeps seem to be avoiding the Knives. And I want to say to you, Fear Not! Avoid no more! The picture that appears in most shops isn't very telling of the versatility of this neat-o fabric.
So I was with Carla after one of our Thursday Art Nights, and she had just made this brilliant pillow using the knives in all three color ways, as we had decided to only do projects using the knives as almost a challenge. Anyway, she was finishing her pillow so she pulled out some buttons, the covering kind, and we started to play around with some scraps... turned out that the small diamond fit perfectly in the center of the button. TURNED out it looked like a cat eye, or on its side, a frog eye. I designed the fabric and I didn't even see that! I said jokingly, "hey, that looks like an eye... HEY THAT LOOKS LIKE AN EYE!" We covered all the buttons she had, and I got started with my new family of cats.
So, not only does the fabric act as perfect eyes for feline or amphibian (think Kermit eyes), it acts as a good cat stripe. Like a tabby or a Mau, and for you cat lovers you can change the directions of the stripe to be more realistic to a cat, and further crack yourself up.
this is the kitchennaire* family. Well fed of course.
I will post more knife fabric projects over the next week or so!
Will you give me a shout (leave a comment) if you have had a Lizzy Dish sighting at a local shop? Just let me know your sweet name and where you are!
I am loving life! Are you all loving it?
