I love this fabric! I didnt know what I was going to do with it so I just got a fat quarter to test it out. https://img1.etsystatic.com/184/0/5394796/il_570xN.1309159687_hxbu.jpg https://img1.etsystatic.com/204/0/5394796/il_570xN.1336241887_4iix.jpg

A pair of pockets that will go on a dress. This is in the performance knit and I wanted to show a pic that is a little more close up, since the zoom doesn't seem to work on the website. Be sure to use your ballpoint needle to prevent you machine from eating your project like mine did.

So happy I stumbled upon this when googling DW fabrics!! I got swatches of 4 different fabrics before settling on the performance knit. I chose the larger size, but I decided to post this on both. The Kona cotton is nice and clear but is kind of dull with a brownish hue. The Organic cotton knit also has a faded look with fuzzy looking edges. Probably due to the fibers? When it is stretched you can see the white where it's not printed, also it doesn't snap back completely so the image may be distorted. The Heavy cotton twill is brighter and more defined and looks much closer to the posted picture then the previous two. However, It was a little too rough for my needs. I found the performance knit to have the most vibrant colors and clear, defined lines. The colors really pop!...though it doesn't show in my pillow pic. The background of the performance knit is more of a honey color than the beige of the fabric photo. You can clearly see the shading and details of the smoke, clothes, wings etc. It's really fun to look at each companion and find all the little Easter eggs. Although I only planned two euro pillows, I really want River so I got 2 yards as another user mentioned not getting a full image of River with only 1 yard. But I love the fabric and print so much I didn't mind because I will find a use of the rest. I will also try to put up a picture of the pockets I make and the 4 swatches: Kona cotton, performance, heavy cotton twill, organic cotton knit. Hopefully it can help anyone who is looking at these fabrics.

I am new to sewing, so I couldn't understand why my machine would keep eating my fabric unless I stretched it out. Be sure to get your ballpoint needle so you don't destroy your project.

Megan, can you make this design & the smaller print in a different color background like white, red, or light blue? Also, it would be great if you made each image in its own print so we could get swatches of different types of fabric.
