Over the weekend I bought- yes, I bought more fabric, I’m bad, so bad, I know it….guilty posts are for mondays, not sundays! Ok, sorry, back to my story….I bought this really cute cotton print that was $2.95 on sale. Hancock Fabrics seems to like to put their bolts out and not turn the fabrics so you can see the pretty side and I have now bought 2 things that I thought the wrong side was prettier than the front. The radiation batik was a wrong-sider. The front had all these micro-polkadots and was too busy for me- yes, there was a busier side! I know, can you believe it? I guess I’m just used to looking at backsides and finding the beauty!
So here’s my question- anyone out there purposely using the back sides of fabric because it’s just more fun? I’m thinking of using the front as my contrast on whatever this fabric says it wants to be.
Here’s the front:
Here’s the back- Katze’s, to be precise:
It’s not a whole heap different- maybe no one will notice- or maybe they will think that I didn’t notice. Hmm….Will the fabric police come for me? Is there any technical reason not to? Is it forbidden, like the Lambada?
