black & white blog hop

Fabulous fabric for accessories {cuff bracelets + easy-sew napkins}.

Is there anything better than black & white for accessories? It’s a classic combination to wear, and it makes a strong statement in the home, too. We had a blast working with Jennifer Sampou’s new black & white fabrics and we’re super excited to be a part of her Insta Blog Hop to celebrate the new fabric collection. If you’re a new or beginning sewist, have no fear – these accessories really are achievable.
