Oh dear, where has the time gone?! Somehow I blinked and two weeks went by since I last blogged/opened WordPress. We did go away for a few days last week to sunny North Wales so I think I will use that as my excuse! Of course no trip to North Wales is now complete without a slight detour to the lovely Abakhan in Mold on the way so I thought I would share with you the latest members of my fabric stash.
For my first purchase I was actually thinking about something other than my own wardrobe, for once. This canvas fabric is just gorgeous and will make a perfect little curtain for in front of a cupboard, instead of a cupboard door. I love hiding ugly insides of cupboards with pretty fabric!
Then, of course, my head went straight back to the ever-expanding list of sewing that I have to sew want to sew for my wardrobe. The t-shirt jerseys caught my eye as its about time I give jersey a proper go. I’m thinking I will make both of these fabrics up in the same pattern and maybe even sew them at the same time (but then again, maybe not).
I’m yet to look through my pattern stash but I know exactly what I want to sew – a long sleeve, scoop neck top. Has anyone ever tried making a pattern from something they already own? I know exactly what top I want to mirror and am considering trying use that as a pattern but not sure where to start!
Has anyone else made any fabric purchases recently?
