latest project // Modern Yardage


I first discovered Modern Yardage while I was at SNAP! back in April
and absolutely fell in love with the fabrics they had there!
The designs were all so fun & modern, I knew I needed to get my hands on some.

Modern Yardage sent me some of their fabrics so I could give them a try;
I got a bunch of coordinating prints that are so cute!
The colors are bright & fresh, the fabric washed well,
and my only problem was trying to decide what to make. ;)


I ended up making a couple small projects so I could use a good mix of the prints I received.
This zipper pouch is my favorite because of the patchwork detailing and the gusset corners!
It's been living in my purse, keeping all of my lip gloss/gum/etc.
from floating around in the bottom of my bag.


I also made this rectangle zipped pouch with a key ring attached
{perfect for running errands and such!}
and a pretty yo-yo headband {perfect to dress up any outfit!}


aren't they pretty? I love how everything turned out!

Modern Yardage fabric is a bit different than standard fabric companies,
so here's a little more about their product & how it works:

Fabric
We print on a high-quality, 100% cotton, pre-shrunk, optic white poplin fabric. It is slightly heavier than traditional quilting weight fabric and great for your sewing and craft projects. 

Ink
We print with environmentally-friendly, water-based textile pigments. We do not use any harsh acids or chemicals. These pigments have been specially formulated to be compatible with our printers and fabric and offer a rich color gamut with very good fastness.  

Layout
We are different than most fabric companies in the way we layout our fabric. Our prints are 44” wide, which is standard among most designer quilting weight fabrics, but we print on 58” wide fabric. We use the additional 14” of fabric to offer fun and creative value-added items. For example, on one order you might find a message from the designer of the print you purchased. On another order you might find an inspirational craft idea or simple sewing pattern. On another order you may find a coupon for your next purchase or pictures of us making fabric. It will always be a suprise!

Oh, and each print of fabric is available in different size scales,
which makes it perfect for whatever project you may want to work on.

I've been very pleased with my Modern Yardage experience
& will definitely order more in the future!
They have so many great designs, you will want to check them all out.
I'm currently loving the Verdant & the Personality collections.
