Do you like orange?

I printed some of my Framed Flower fabric in a burnt orange colour. I wasn't totally sure how the colour was going to turn out as I had to mix it. The orange I had was far too bright. I was envisaging Halloween and pumpkins here ;-)

Then came to lining...

I don't have too many orange fabrics and certainly not lining fabrics (I tend to use soft Tana Lawn or AMH voile fabrics) but then this Liberty fabric jumped out at me in my stash and I just LOVE it!

I know it's not just orange, but the splash of orange really pops out and I absolutely love it.
Whilst these pouches have gone off to a stockist I'm definitely going to be printing some more fabric in this colour...

...I just hope I know how to mix it again.

Note to self: Write down paint 'recipes'...

Just lovely all that burnt orange, but then came the lining and 'oh la la!' :-)

I do love orange - but even more now! Totally gorgeous and if you have some fabric like this for sale I would be buying it! Well done!

Looks great! I'm definitely a fan of orange and I think the lining works perfectly.

oh yes, ALWAYS write down the paint recipe - learnt that one the hard way!! These are really subtle colour combinations - the linings are terrific with the printed fabric

These are fantastic! I love the tone of the orange. Much better than pumpkin anyday. The lining fabric is to die for... :) - Jules

The orange is lovely and perfectly matched to the lining fabric! I know exactly what you meant about keeping ink recipes ~ I have a big sign near my inks to remind me!!

These are so gorgeous - I love your print (and the orange colour), and also the combination of linen with the lining print. Am off to investigate your Etsy right now. :)
