For this futon, I want to use fabric I've collected through the years. Using fabric I already have brings back memories of my mother and grandmother. While I've taken many sewing classes since junior high school, my initial drive to create and take on a project can be traced back to these two woman. They were from the generation who sewed because their children needed clothing; I'm thankful that I got to be carried along and learn from their skills and confidence.
Here's the e-mail and photo, I sent the mom - I'll keep come back and update you as we progress.
I'm attaching a couple of fabric choices for you. Unfortunately, I don't have any lavender/violet in my fabric collection but I love these other choices I'm sending. None of the colors are overly strong/bright.
1. Greenish/blue with white flowers
2. Green and yellow flowers
3. Pinkish paisley with light blue trim
Let me know if any of them work for you. Best, Laura
