As well as it being quite therapeutic, it was good to find some fabrics that had disappeared under the radar and now rediscovered, I’m wondering what to make with them … or whether to just hoard them, like the mad fabric stashing lady that I am.
This Liberty London fabric is a cotton lawn and I don’t know if I can bear to cut into it. I’ve got 2 colour ways and originally bought them to make some dresses for my daughters. They aren’t really into Hello Kitty anymore ( can’t see Liberty London doing a Moshi Monster print anytime soon, but you never know :) ). There’s enough for grown up dresses so maybe that’s what they will be.
I reckon this tape measure fabric needs to be a skirt. I’ll cut a pattern for it and rustle that up at some point. But it does look pretty in the cupboard. Hmmm !
This fabric bundle has been in the stash for a few years and I still have every intention of making a quilt out of the fat quarters. I’d also like to make some patchwork roman blinds some time. We’ll see.
When I was in New York last year, I found this silk leopard print fabric that’s 150cm wide. It needs a bit of a press. I think it would make a really cool contemporary kimono. What do you think ?
The bird print was from Brighton, and it should probably be made into something for my Etsy shop. A travel bag ?
There are so many amazing new prints out there too at the moment – trying to keep the blinkers on and not get too carried away at the moment because the new brand is ever on my mind – never knew that a business plan would take so long but obviously it is all worth it …. probably should get in with it, really … nothing like a bit of blogging procrastination. :)
What are you up to this week ? Oh, and don’t forget the 2 goodies giveaway. It ends on Friday.
