Give Canvas a Try

Spring is right around the corner and just in time, with bright colors and fun prints, we're releasing Auntie's Attic Canvas, a collection with twelve new prints that are perfect for a wide range of projects. 

Inspired by vintage wallpaper, the prints evoke a retro, yet modern feel with graphic designs and bold colors. Made from 100% cotton, the fabric is heavier than standard quilting cottons, making it a great choice for projects that will get extra wear and tear. Backpacks, dufflebags, purses, cushions, jackets and tablecloths are all projects that would be well-suited for using canvas. Need a few ideas?

The Social Tote is a great pattern to use with Auntie's Attic Canvas. Designed by Carolyn Friedlander (Slow Sewing Studio), the heavier weight of the fabric lends stability to the tote.

Lauren from Sew Modern in Los Angeles used the canvas to make up this gorgeous version of Colette Pattern's Anise Jacket.  [And check out that wall of Kona Cottons!]

Lauren didn't stop with her jacket, though! She whipped up these fab pillows for her sofa, too.

So go ahead and give canvas a try! Let us know what you made by tagging us on Instagram (@robertkaufman) or Facebook (@robertkaufmanfabrics). We're looking forward to seeing what you can do with Auntie's Attic Canvas, too!
