that bug what everyone’s got

The sewing bug, that is – I’ve got it too. I started sewing long before I started knitting, but I was never that serious about it so the skills are limited. I’ve made lots of bags, skirts, some ill-fitting pants, even a corset-sorta top.

Well, now I’m trying to branch out. And I’ve got the major fabric stash to prove it. A bunch of new stuff from Reprodepot came today, and it’s just fabulous stuff!

Crinkle brown paisley and kaffe fasset shot cotton in “grass” for dresses.

Sushi print for a gym clothes bag for my sister; some of the portable goldfish print will be for a pillowcase for her as well.

More Kaffe Fasset cotton on the left – it’s thinner and sheerer than I was expecting. I was going to make a skirt or something, but I’m not sure now. On the right, yummy barkcloth. I’ve got two yards, and I’m tempted to make a dress or skirt or something.

I *love* this one – it’s a large floral cotton jacquard, and it’s heavy and soft and fabulous. I only got one yard because it’s expensive, and obviously now I don’t know what to do with it – maybe as part of a quilt.

I’ve even got a sewing FO to show you…tomorrow!

    I LOVE the goldfish print! I mean, the rest is beautiful but something about the goldfish just tickles my funnybone in the best way.

    I love the goldfish print too – I have it and can’t decide what to do with it.

    The colors in the crinkly brown paisley are soo soothing and homey.

    I haven’t sewn for at least 15 years, but now I pick it up. But have to practice more to gain the skill and technique.
