I’ll totally admit it… Sometimes I see ideas floating around the interweb and, hmmm I just don’t think that’s for me. One such idea was the orange peel. I’m just not into hand appliqué or folding the fabric over and all that jazz, it all seemed like a lot of fuss for something that I didn’t think would fit into my aesthetic. And then, like being hit on the head with a ton of bricks, the right fabric combination made its way into my sewing room and the orange peel was the only thing I could think about. So, this post will chronicle my journey into Orange Peel Goodness.
