color combo // twenty three
If you haven't been introduced to fabric charm packs yet, let me start this post with an apology. I'm so very sorry that you're about to form a new addiction.
Charm packs (as they are most commonly called) are little bundles of fabric, pre-cut to 5 inch squares. They also come in mini charm packs (2.5 inch squares) and layer cakes (10 inch squares). The packs include pieces of every style in a fabric line, which make them handy for incorporating many prints without buying lots of yardage.
I've been building a collection of them, and I'm pretty sure that I play with and admire them more than I actually use them in projects. I have plans to remedy that, but in the meantime, my addiction has inspired a new version of an ongoing series that I'll be sharing with you!
Along the way, I've created embroidery floss color palettes to inspire your stitching, and this time around I'm choosing colors from fabric! Looking at fabric lines is a great place to get color ideas, because you'll see hues working well together. Then all you need to do is find floss, paint, or whatever medium you are using, in those colors. I'm just doing that for you with these posts!
These colors are taken from Moda's Twenty-Three line, which has warm pinks, oranges and yellow. There's also some cream, gray and a teeny bit of green, though I left the green out of my floss palette.
Use these colors alongside this fabric line or use them on their own, because I'm sure you'll agree...these colors are as charming as the charm pack they're taken from!
