What are yard dyed fabrics, you might ask? Yarn dyed fabrics are exactly what they sound like. Yarns are dyed into specific colors before being woven into a design. Often varying weights or textures of yarn are woven into the cloth to create a more textured fabric that is frequently double sided. This process takes additional time, planning, and engineering to achieve a particular design and will account for the slightly higher price point of yarn-dyed fabrics. Take advantage of the versatility that linen offers. Due to its inherent strength and breathability, linen can be used in applications around the home as well as many types of garments and accessories. Use linen for throw pillows, napkins, quilting, tablecloths, aprons. In the photos you will see a picture of a few bags from my book, Sew Bags, The Practical Guide to making Purses, Totes, Clutches & More. The bags are made with Essex Linen-without washing the fabric, and backed with interfacing to provide additional structure. The next to last photo in the listing features multiple color ways of this linen, which have all been machine washed and dried. See how soft and comfortable the fabric looks? Perhaps you'd like a signed copy of my book, Sew Bags, The Practical Guide to Making Purses, Totes, Clutches & More, to make a bag for yourself- or a gift.
