Cloud 9 Organics Geocentric

SewMamaSew offered me the chance to try out a new fabric line, and this is what I did. I turned 3 half yard cuts of this glorious new organic canvas into one of my newest bags, the departure satchel. The fabric soon available here at Hawthorne Threads, is wonderful to work with. Softer than the duck canvas I am used to working with. I think it would be fabulous for Summer table linens (and into Fall too with the green, blue and grey fabrics also in the line.) The colors are so cheerful together. I love how the different fabrics really show off my pockets too. I think a lot of new moms look for organic, so I think this fabric will do really well in diaper bags and for sophisticated baby d├ęcor. If you are looking for the sewing pattern, you can find it on Craftsy and in my Etsy shop, whichever you prefer.

Etsy Favorites Get a Pinterest Makeover


We can organize our favorites on Etsy into lists, making them look a little bit like Pinterest boards. I realized this is a great opportunity for me to promote those of you who make items for sale from my patterns. I have created a list called Made from a StudioCherie Pattern. If you would like your items included in this list, please send me an email or an Etsy convo. There are times when I get a custom request that I cannot fill, so I would love to be able to refer buyers to this list to shop with you!
