...stash builder super sale & fun fabric friday!

Happy Friday everyone!  This week's Stash Builder Super Sale print is Scattered Lantern Pods from Laura Gunn's Lantern Bloom collection.  It's also doubling as this Friday's Fun Fabric!  (Yes, I know...I'm very sporadic with Fun Fabric Friday - something I'm trying to remedy this new year!)  The Lantern Bloom collection is fun to me because each print is a real painting turned into fabric.  How cool is that?! 

But I think the Scattered Pods print is especially fun because, well...it's pods! Their shape and design is so interesting and you could do so many fun things with this print. You could make pillow covers (I know, I always suggest that, but this is a great scale for throw pillows and a nice way to add a pop of orangey-red color to a room!) It's also a great print to "cover" just about anything...desk organizer trays, magazine holders, pencil cups, any organizer box or bin...it just has that kind of scale where it certainly catches your eye from across a room, but it's not overpowering.

(Pods sizes vary, but average approximately 1" x 2")

Well, that's my take on this print...do you have any other ideas to add?  I'd love to see the comment box fill up with some of your great ideas!  But don't forget to head over to the shop to grab up this great little cut while it's on super sale - $1.50 Fat Quarter!

See you in the shop!
