My favorite use for laminates? Wellll, I hate to admit it, but these would be my first use of them. I've been away from sewing for many years and just recently rediscovered the love of it, and I haven't yet worked with laminates. These beautiful prints would be a wonderful way for me to fall in love with laminates!

I just stumbled upon your blog looking for fabric. These laminates by Anna Maria Horner are beautiful. I haven't sewn with laminates yet, but can already envision beauty pouches, lunch bags, aprons, place-mats, backpacks, raincoats... Ooh, the ideas are endless!

Judy1522 said...

There are lots of projects I would make with the laminate. I would use it to make cosmetic bags with one being a travel holder for makeup brushes. I also would use it to make book covers. It would also be great to use to make a bag to hold thread and fabric scraps when sewing.
