New fabrics: quilted waterproof Burberry, oh my!


I visited my favorite fabric shop in Boston, Winmil Fabrics, and found quilted Burberry fabric that’s 100% waterproof! What a coup! Water has no chance against this fabric — it slides right off.  Burberry used this fabric for rain coats and then sold the unused fabric. So, not only is it waterproof, it’s also eco-friendly because we are using remnants. Plus the fabric comes in these delicious, rich colors which pair into dozens of beautiful color combinations!

I really love the way these fabrics look together, the colors complement each other so perfectly and the quilting adds a nice texture.  Check out this Striped Wristlet for inspiration…
