Upcoming fabric projects

I had a hard time deciding what to make for our house in my Spoonflower fabric samples.  I wanted my first project to look Arts & Crafts but contemporary, have the colors I like and the design be the right scale to the item.  Now after several different color tries and swatches, I have a version of my Rose pattern I like.  The photo shows the sample swatch on my dining room chair.  I ordered a yard in a linen cotton canvas and will drop off the fabric to a HandmadeMN seamstress this weekend to make into pillow covers. Her pillows are amazing! It's a busy time of year for her, but when they're done, I'll post a picture and share her Etsy shop address with you. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they will turn out.  I think this would work in a future rug design as well.  
And....don't tell my Mom, but I'm having an apron made for her in another fabric of mine called Eucalyptus brown for Christmas. Since the fabric is a bit pricey, I'm going with the apron without the added ruffle and flaps, but will have it made in a heavier fabric as she requested for making pies with the Presbyterian Pie Ladies in my hometown. Mom said she wants an apron that's functional and beautiful. She already has a couple aprons made by this second Etsy seamstress, so I know it will be wonderful craftsmanship.  I'll share her info with you when it's finished and I post a picture.

Check out how the bittersweet popped open!
