I came across this in my STASH. A looong time ago, I won this fabric on an ebay auction. The description was 28 count pastel linen and it included four pieces (red, blue, teal & green) that are a half yard each. Even though it was not what I was thinking pastel linen would be and the picture on the auction looked very different than what I received, I kept the fabric. I guess I thought I’d find a use for it *someday*.
So, what should I do with it? My eyes bug out just looking at the threads of this fabric. I had to take a needle and thread and stitch a row just to see if it was actually something I could stitch on.
I have some designs that I’d like to stitch for pillows and this fabric might be good for that, IF it can be bleached or dyed. It’s a heavy fabric, almost like a denim weight. I do like the general color of the fabrics, just not the colored fabric thread with the white fabric thread.
I was thinking maybe it could be dyed to be more of a solid color, but I know I’d have a difficult time matching the colored fabric threads. I also thought about bleaching it, but I’m worried bleach would damage the fabric threads.
