Little did I know when I was dyeing this fabric, that I'd be looking at snow out my window while writing this post. There isn't a dot of bright green out my window but I have it right here next to me. It's my hope for Spring to arrive soon!
Greens are the most popular fabrics in Stash Packs and that's why I keep at least 3 options in stock for you. These fabrics are so perfect for applique leaves, vines and trees. Green fabrics, of course, are made by blending blues and yellows. For Autumn Greens I blend with a golden yellow to capture mature autumnal colors. For Spring Greens I blend with a bright yellow to get the shades of new Spring growth.
Each Stash Pack has 8 fat eights of fabric. They aren't meant to all blend together. They are meant to give you a wide variety of shades and values for your Spring Garden.
Becky Brown loves using Stash Packs for her botanical applique. Here are a few examples of how she fussy cuts these fabrics to make her leaves and vines look like they came straight from the garden.
