Today I went to an exhibition about 60 years of television with two co-workers/friends and the baby. More about the exhibition in a later post cause I had the opportunity to take some pictures of a recent make!
But I also had the opportunity to visit a lovely fabric store, which I only get to visit about once a year cause it is is quite far from home.
I walked out with two remnants and an entire bolt 🙂
Top left: a white and blue striped sweaterknit which will make a great comfy summer cardigan.
Top right: a floral jersey which I hope will make enough for a Lady Skater.
Bottom: I fell in love! It’s a synthetic linnen, probably more suited for decoration but it has a lovely drape and don’t get me started on the colours… Seriously, this was love at first sight. I loved it so much and at €2,50/m I took home the remaining 9m (!) on the bolt. Doesn’t it have Dolly Clackett written all over!
So I’m very happy with what I took home. But that’s not all I bought.
Top: two sets of really cute appliques. It’s kind of hard to decide whether they’ll be for the baby or for me 🙂
Bottom left: I bought her a backpack because she starts daycare in two weeks and I needed a bag to put all her stuff, I thought this one was really cute and next year she can carry it herself.
Bottom right: COULD.NOT.RESIST the applique owl pillow. I’m thinking of making a pattern out of it so I can make more. They’ll make a great scrapbuster!
How’s your weekend? Did you ever love fabric so much, you took home the entire bolt?
