A Natural Pair - Stock/Wild Plum


Photo has not been altered.  Picture was taken at Noon on a bright, sunny day.
Hello Sewists!
I'm starting a weekly blog post aimed at giving you a better idea
of what color the By Annie handbag zippers are in real life.
I know it is difficult to be certain of what color to order when you can't
see the zipper in person.

Since God placed a plethora of color in nature,
I will be using natural items to pair with a matching zipper.
First up, we have the Stock plant and the Wild Plum zipper.

Stock (botanical name is Matthiola incana)
flowers have a lovely clove-like fragrance.
Stock is available in a variety of colors.
This one is more pink than purple.
For a good comparison of the pinks and purples,
take a look at this photo from Burpee seeds:

Next week's featured zipper color is Papaya.

If you have a zipper color purchase that you are pondering,
and you would like a better idea of the true color,
post a comment below and I will hunt down something in nature
with which to pair the zipper.

Happy sewing, my friends!
