Amy Butler







When I say brilliant colored patterned material do you think Amy Butler too? To me, Amy Butler's knack for combining vintage designs with bright luscious colors is genius. Granted I can't sew. Have had nothing but disastrous experiences with the sewing machine and seam ripper. But, that doesn't keep me from buying material, cutting out patterns, and dreaming of a bed full of Amy Butler pillows, and a closet full of Amy Butler bags, aprons, and yoga pants!

These images are of Amy's studio and products! Divine, aren't they?

oh yes, she is a favorite of mine. i love how she brings florals into mid-century modern-style. i look at her home book all the time. it is so sweet how you buy fabric and cut it up to make patterns. you should try a simple patchwork, don't give up! i wrestle with my little sewing machine all the time ;).

Learning to sew. It's definitely on my to-do list for 'one of these days.' No time like the present, though, right? ☺

Yes, these images are divine! You always pull such loveliness together, Jewels.

Sewing to me is like brain surgery. Its possible to learn I am sure, but seems almost impossible when you are attempting to do it. Its fun to dream and scheme and collect fabrics for future projects though! I really love those pillows!

I love that first photo--even though it's not even of fabric! Haha. Her stuff is so great---modern and girly and fun all at the same time.

One of my faves, I found a book - "Found Style" over the summer for $1 and LOVE it! I keep opening it and finding new ideas. I have to get back to sewing again
and make one of those great bags.

I have just bought the Amy Butler book called Midwest Modern and I absolutely love it - can't put it down. I have never heard of her before but I am really pleased I have now. She is so incredibly creative and her patterns are to die for.
