This is my pile
And this is Mum's
Buying in bulk is something I don't usually do. I am more of a "sourcer" if there be such a word? I find what I want to make first and then source the fabric for it.
But with so many wonderful textiles to take advantage of from somewhere I rarely get to go, it was an opportunity not to be missed.
The favourite of mine is this blue textured jersey knit. Looks a darker blue on the photo than it actually is. I am thinking perhaps Vogue 8873 for this one
No idea what to make with this yet or what type of fabric it is. Doesn't crease and drapes nicely.
Working in the tourist industry we don't see much of summer other than through the windows at work(!) so pretty sure this pink cotton jersey wont get used until our next hot weather holiday is booked!
Another jersey knit (looking a lot like aida here) Oh how I love making and wearing jersey knits. This has fitted dress written all over it
And finally this is a khaki wool blend crepe. For this I have Vogue 1265 in mind. I saw a lovely version of this made by Anelise which made me notice a pattern I'd never previously noticed. The pattern looks really interesting, so thought I'd give it a try sometime.
As for Mum's purchases, I am making her fabrics up also. For the denim, we only had 1 metre so we are using McCall's 3341 for this.
We are to confer on everything else as we go along but if anyone has any tips on how to work with this concertina fabric, I would be very much obliged!
This is the same fabric as the black and red that I bought.
Not sure what this one is either but Mum would like a skirt in it
Guess I am going to be busy for some time....! :)
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read
