I thought I'd pop in and let you know that I haven't disappeared. It would appear that the last thing I make was the pouches about a week ago but in fact I have been sewing like mad it's just that whatever I'm making I can't show you yet. I have one bag completed for a blog hop and another two test bags completed too. Tonight I'm about to start on the next one.
I would have started earlier but couldn't make up my mind which fabrics to use and after much searching in my stash decided I needed more. Only about a meter. I should have known better and taken someone with me to keep a tight rein becasue I ended up coming home with 8 meters LOLLLL. Well it's not going to go to waste. I'll use all of it eventually and anyway my way of thinking is if I buy it now I won't be tempted to go out and buy even more when I need to make something, so I'm actually saving, right.
Here are the fabrics I bought. It's evening here so the lighting isn't very good. The colours are much sharper.
I think I'm going to be using these two for my next test bag. These are upholstery fabrics.
This is a cotton fabric and I loved the chain stitch and glitter in it. So pretty.
These two are also upholstery fabrics but have a velvety feel to them. The one on the right looks like a brownish colour but in fact its more green.
Well I've had a good fondle of my fabric so I'd best get back to some more sewing now.
Hope you're all having as much fun as I am.
