This week’s featured scarf camera strap highlights a simple print on a light and airy fabric called double gauze. I learned about this fabric when I attended a fabric tradeshow a few years ago and have been impressed from the beginning! It’s a very light woven fabric that feels really soft – in fact, it’s so light, that manufacturers choose to layer it so that it’s not see through! When you look closely at the fabric, you can see where they plunge a needle into the two layers at regular intervals in a process that reminds me a bit of felting with yarn. The doubled layers make it the perfect weight for your camera strap!
Lately, I’ve been sharing what some of the top favorites in the shop are on instagram – it’s fun to see and share what other people are liking and interested in. I love this pretty pink print from the talented designer Bonnie Christine that’s made by Art Gallery Fabrics which is headquartered right here in the Miami area. I suspect that this beautiful print is reminding a lot of people of spring right about now! If you’re interested in learning more about Art Gallery (I love and use LOTS of their gorgeous prints both for projects and camera straps), you can read more of their story here. They really are a small family company and I love being able to support them by purchasing their fabrics – not JUST because they’re beautiful and top quality.
