Nature Sings Fabric Tour with Ellie Bug Makes

Nature Sings Fabric Tour with Ellie Bug Makes

Today on our Nature Sings Fabric Tour we have Ellie who has made so many wonderful projects using this lovely collection. She was so inspired to make things for the month of May and Mother's Day. You can see more of Ellie's work on instagram @elliebugmakes.

Ellie made everything for "Mom’s Day Out." She used Ali @arabesquescissors folding shopper bag as a basis and just tweaked it a little bit. 
Ellie's patterns for the key fobs! 

We are inspired by nature and the pretty birds that gather in the garden each day. Nature Sings is a beautiful color palette of soft lavender, butter yellows, delicious reds, calm blues and pretty pinks. There is a beautiful main print with large roses and flowers in a tossed layout. The gingham checks add a vintage feel to the collection. There are bouquets of flowers, tossed with medium size flowers, a tiny geometric and birds in circles... all are an ode to nature.


You can see the full collection here designed by Lori Woods for Poppie Cotton.

These are Ellie's own designs for sunglass/eyeglass case, key fobs, and patchwork coffee sleeves. 
She used a current McCall’s pattern to make ruffled make-up pouches.
Ellie laminated a few of the fabrics with pellon 106 matte vinyl fuse to make a tote. Such a lovely combination of fabrics. 
Last but not least, it’s not Mother's Day without a bouquet.  She designed the tulips and daffodils last year and just knew these prints would be a perfect fit!  These flowers are gorgeous out of these colors.

Be sure to stop by often and see all the other makers projects and designs for this sweet collection, Nature Sings.
