Hello, hello makers!
I hope you had a fun Labor Day weekend! I must admit that starting the month with a long weekend is the best! Isn’t it a great way to start the month full of energy? Especially, when it gives you time to find inspiration for new sewing projects.
As you all know, at AGF color makes our world go ‘round so we can’t wait to sew with a new hue! For the month of September we have our eyes on the color Mint. We know that September is that month where summer transitions into fall, but we don't want to let go of summer just yet!
Mint is such a fresh color that can be incorporated in all kinds of things! From home decor, to fashion garments, and of course quilts, this color is subtle yet classy with a touch of retro. Here’s a little moodboard to get you in a minty mood. ;)
If you love this color but you’re not sure how to combine it, we’ve got you covered! Pair mint with deep hues for a dramatic look or combine it with soft pastels for a subtle feminine look.
Mint in home decor:
Fresh mint fabrics can be combined in your favorite quilts, pillows, and anything else to give your decor a calm look. How about incorporating it in a nursery for a sweet gender neutral look? Or you can even make your living room feel extra zen with mint accessories! No matter what you choose to do, once you start decorating with mint it will become your go-to color. You can explore home decor projects in our free quilt patterns and free sewing patterns pages.
Mint in fashion:
When it comes to fashion, there are some days when wearing calm light colors make you feel great. Mint is definitely one of those color. You can be classic and combine it with navy or be a bit more adventurous and combine in with coral. No matter how you wear it, it’s sure to make you even more beautiful! If you’re looking to do a little “me made sewing,” you can explore our lookbooks with a variety of patterns that would look great with this hue.
