Gray and purple

I love the combination of gray and some other color, really any other color red, orange, green, blue, you name it, but until now I have not really made anything using that combo. That is, until this weekend. I pulled out some gray, white, and purple from my stash and this was the result.

At the end of the evening I had 4 pouches. I had no specific design or plan in mind, I was just making them up as I went. Love how they all turned out. I think they'll make great Christmas presents for my oldest daughters' teachers.


I loved this color combination so much that I decided to make a notebook and cell phone cover, too. I used this tutorial.

The tutorial is so wonderfully well written and easy to follow that I ended up making one more notebook cover, this time using Aneela Hoey's Little Apples fabric which I absolutely adore.


Do you have a favorite color combo or a project you can't seem to stop making?

  2. I've been eyeing that tutorial for the wallet/organizer and should really make one. Yours turned out great, the other projects as well. I too love gray with pretty much any other colour. Lately I've been doing quite a bit with red/aqua which I also love!

  5. Purple is my favorite color! But I tend to stick within a certain fabric line and don't pull together my own fabrics by myself. I have in the past and am usually disappointed with the outcome. You must have a knack for it though because those little wallets are perfect! The houndstooth check is really nice.

    So, I am mostly constrained by what is popular (or what WAS popular since I probably bought on sale and is not current anymore) therefore aqua and gray is my most used color combo.

  6. Ooooh, I adore that houndstooth fabric!! I think the fabric pairing I keep coming back to is anything with blue - I think there's blue in every single quilt I make, most of the time! But, now I'm feeling the urge to tackle something gray and purple :)
