African Sketchbook Fabrics

In a recent post on the blog, Cote De Texas, the author featured a hotel in Cape Town that was filled with fine art fabrics by African Sketchbook. They are GORGEOUS, awe-inspiring, worthy of a million oohs and ahhs. After exploring their website and learning how much time and effort goes into these masterpieces, I'm even more in awe.

I'm convinced that with a bit of inspiration, I can make a DIY version. Possibly for some curtains...hmmmmm. If only I had a house!

Check out that couch! It's a striped fabric with a vintage letter silk screened on top.

    Very creative.

  3. Hi Amanda,
    I too flipped when I saw Joni's post about this amazing hotel in Cape Town. It's truly one of the most incredible things I've ever come across!
    I take my hat off to you for attempting a DIY version. I am so in awe of people who are not afraid to try!!!
    Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you come back often and I will do the same :)
    Have a great week.

  4. I didn't even notice those! How beautiful!
