Organic Sweet Pea Gauze™
Have you been dreaming of one day having a wardrobe that’s 100% handmade? For today’s guest blogger, Sara Johansen from The Sara Project, she’s one blouse closer to achieving her me-made goal with today’s tutorial! Sara is joining us (for the first time!) to share her take on a boho blouse featuring our Organic Sweet Pea Gauze™. If you’re looking for a light and airy top to add to your wardrobe, this is the pattern for you! Add a gorgeous print from holli_zollinger and you’ve got the perfect day to night blouse.
What’s four words and sweet as can be? If you guessed our newest fabric, Organic Sweet Pea Gauze™, you’re right on the money! Your go-to project using this super-soft gauze may be swaddle blankets, but did you know this fabric can be used for so much more? From reversible bowl covers to reusable grocery bags, your gauze project list is endless! Today we’re celebrating the launch of our newest natural (and organic!) fabric with a visit from Spoonflower alumna, Theresa Rizzuto — you may recognize her as trizzuto in the Marketplace! Find out her tips for working with gauze and see how she put it to the test with the new Charlie caftan from Closet Case Patterns.
After many (we may have lost count!) customer requests for the perfect swaddle fabric, we are excited to introduce Spoonflower’s Organic Sweet Pea Gauze! From cuddly receiving blankets to beach cover-ups, our newest natural addition to the Spoonflower lineup is a 100% organic cotton double gauze fabric. You may have heard it referred to as muslin or cheesecloth. This gauze crinkles when washed, resulting in a breathable, textured fabric perfect for swaddling. For the best look and softest feel, we recommend keeping designs light and scattered. See how to make the most of your gauze in this helpful care video.
