Photographing Fabric Inspiration




I promised to share my new fabric collection on a recent post, Seahorse Memories Inspiration, when the fabric arrived on the new Kona Cotton fabric. I used the cotton fabric with my little fish design as the outer frame.  That's Simone Seahorse swimming on a sea of French script in Tiffany blue.


Here's Samantha and her School of Fish.  Looks like a lesson is about to begin.  I found the cutest video of Seahorse Inspiration.



My daughter Ashley on her magical seahorse.  I photographed the collection on an inspiration board I covered in French script in creamsicle.  I thought it would be a nice contrast.


I will have more to share, I am still photographing them and adding the listings to French Script on etsy.  I just got back some more fabric printed on the new Kona Cotton.  I ordered the Ooh La Lah Pink Dress.




I'll be busy today photographing the rest of the Seahorse and Sea Creature collection.  I thought of a nice way to organize and store my collections.  I will share it in a tutorial soon.

Have a beautiful Thursday.

Oh that last photo is soooo dreamy! I love it. Your fabrics are as well. What are you planning to do with them? Table linens? Drapes? Shower curtain? A shower curtain with the sea horse would be sweet. Keep right on having fun!

I've always been mesmerized by seahorses. I absolutely love how you've included them and your daughter with these gorgeous colors!
