Loulouthi is Anna Maria Horner’s tribute to her Greek cultural heritage. Loulouthi is a treasure box of flowers and floral handiwork done up in Anna Maria’s singular style, enlivened with of visions of needleworks in progress, the gentle tending of village gardens, and the luxury of living alongside everyday works of art. This 58-inch wide oilcloth is perfect for baby projects, lunch bags, or tablecloths!
I am getting married at the end of the month and, although I know it might seem odd, until now I haven't sewn, knitted, embroidered, or made anything for the wedding. Throughout the wedding planning process I've tried not to bite off more than I could chew and I just couldn't handle the pressure of sewing 100 napkins! But I had been hoping I would get to make something for our guests, even just something small, since making things by hand is a pretty big part of my life!
