coverFor this Xmas issue, they did a tribute to a turn-of-the-century American illustrator named Ellen Clapsaddle, and use printed panels of her illustrations on fabric. It appears to be a limited edition printed fabric that was never available in the West, I assume. However, you should be able to find similar printed panel fabric at your local quilt shop.

The patterns are simple, and designed around the small panel prints. The book cover pattern utilizes the size of the panel the best. Then there’s a tote, and an apron, both of relatively simple designs to make them unspectacular. There’s a simple JSK pattern that might be nice here, by Innocent World again. Same idea, and fits well if you’re a small. I wish these things came in bigger sizes.
