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!
