Portfolio Latika Festival fabric
I recently made replacement pillows for our living room couch with this fabric. I absolutely love this pattern. The fabric frays so I sewed the seams with both my regular machine and my serger to keep the seams strong (pillows are on a much sat upon couch). The fabric also moves around easily so I had to take extra special care to keep my seams lined up so the pattern would line up perfectly. The fabric is not soft - it feels like an outdoor fabric. I am hoping it will soften up with use. I used this same fabric a few years ago and I can't remember if it started off so stiff - those pillows are much softer now. Due to sun damage and wear and tear they needed to be replaced. I am attaching a few photos. I've included one of the new pillow with the old pillow in front to show how the fabric has faded and worn out over time. The stacked pillows photo shows off the skills I've learned from watching OFS's tutorial on the hidden ladder stitch. :)I really appreciate OFS's videos. I highly recommend this fabric.
