I also got some new fabric! Not a lot but enough hold me over for a while. As we speak, I'm filling my cart at fabric.com with fabrics for my fall/winter sewing. Anyway, to the fabrics!
|I can make a "blueberry" dress/blouse/skirt with this!|
|I got enough of this to make 2 blouses. Now just to pick which ones!|
|Already have a pattern picked out for this. It will be known as my "Firefly" dress.|
Only one of these is even close to my fall palette but in my defense I purchased these before I made one. I'll post that soon, btw. I'm really excited about my Firefly dress. I chose this pattern from BurdaStyle. I'll probably shorten it as they did with their spring version. The first one, I found at Walmart like its sister (which has already been turned into a great dress!). It was in the remnant bin (2 yards) and was a meager $2.80! I literally couldn't pass it up. I see myself wearing the garments I make from the second fabric much more in the spring.
There has finally been a change to my sewing area that I'm really happy about. I finally broke down and bought a proper sewing table! I carved myself a little area in the living room and put the folding table I bought there and my fabric bins went under and next to it. I was so happy I sat down and finished a UFO right then and there. I have a new little sleep shirt!

That pillow on my chair is actually the first thing I EVER sewed. It was in my 7th grade FCS (family and consumer sciences...I guess they had to call it something less girly than home ec.) class about 12 years ago. I was very excited to find it while Sir Knight and I were cleaning the house. It was actually his idea to put it there which I thought was perfect.
Hope the rest of your weekend is great!
