Block Printed Fabric Celina Mancurti Fabric Giveaway

Hi readers!

This month, the eco friendly linen and fabric designer company,  Celina Mancurti, contacted me to review some of their fabric. After sewing with it I can tell you I absoulutely love this hand printed linen fabric.
 I was sent another piece to give away today!

It's a half yard of hand blocked natural color linen with bird stamps on it. What can you do with 1/2 a yard? I think this fabric would make lovely Christmas stockings, tea towels or potholders. I'm sure you will think of something if you win it!

Celina is a trained textile designer from Argentina who makes her own screens and hand prints her fabrics herself. She was a project manager at a textile company and taught fashion design at a University before she decided to go into business making fabric and linens. Celina uses water based inks on organic linens and organic threads. Her methods are eco friendly and create much less impact than mechanized printing processes. I love the idea of buying hand printed fabrics. Many of the fabrics we use to sew with are made in factories in countries with no environmental restrictions.

Celina does beautiful work and sells gifts as well. Stop by her Etsy shop and pay her a visit!

I shared my bird printed skirt I made in my draft along post yesterday but in case you missed it, here is another picture!

I washed the fabric a few times before I sewed it. I love the quality of this linen.
