Carol Van Zandt is an amazing designer I’ve had the pleasure of knowing recently. She designs gorgeous fabric, which is how I came to make her acquaintance, and also licenses her artwork for cell phone covers and other products. You can read more about Carol on her website: Carol Van Zandt
She gave me some samples from her recent fabric collections for Andover Fabrics. The gorgeous subtle blue, cream and taupe fabric used on this fabric canister is from her Tokyo Rococo collection for Andover Fabrics.
Carol only had a small piece of this particular fabric to share, less than a fat quarter, so I paired it with a soft, touchable linen/cotton blend fabric. I cut the selvage off the linen, then decided I liked the fringed selvage and added it back onto the inner pocket.
I also added a few glass beads as a counterpoint to the earthy linen.
Carol has a gorgeous collection of paint brushes in her studios. Perhaps she can put a few brushes in this fabric canister since this is her holiday gift from me. Thanks, Carol, for your generous spirit and creative inspiration.
