I am slowly getting the new STENZO fabrics up online. STENZO are from the Netherlands, and are deliciously vibrant! We have a lovely assortment of knits and wovens in the current range...I have just finished this farbenmix IMKE for my Lil (6). The two knits are new STENZO cotton/elastin. Finished off nicely with LOVE iron on velour.

I just love these fabrics together!  Off to sew a few more!
