Fab Fabrics: New Organic Cotton Prints from Betz White
These super-sized, bold prints from Betz White are perfect for those spring sewing projects!
Confession: Betz White is one of my crafty heroes. She’s a green crafty superstar, author of several books on reclaimed crafts, and an all around amazing woman. We’ve covered her fabric lines here before, and I was thrilled to see her new collection: Mod Max.
Mod Max is my latest organic fabric collection! It’s big, it’s bold and it’s so much fun. Each print is a single element in a single color blown up HUGE. Sort of like a graphic interpretation of macro-photography!
Don’t you just love the gigantic designs in cheery, spring colors? All of the Mod Max designs are printed on a hemp/organic cotton blend canvas using water-based, non-toxic inks. Canvas is a nice weight for making sturdy projects like pillows, curtains, wrist cuffs, and other housewares and accessories.
You can snag the Mod Max collection in Betz White’s Etsy shop, where it’s available by the yard or in fat quarters.
