|The fabrics are a mix of pains I bought in a fat quarter bundle of plains and some random patterned ones that took my eye, I've placed them against my cream cord cushion as it was the easiest white background to hand being right next to me!|
I've bought some more fat quarters from the fabric stall in my local market yesterday as they were too pretty to leave and we've got a new project to do next week. It's a secret what the project is, can't decide whether the teacher is winding us up and hasn't decided yet or she knows certain members of the class won't like it so will just spring it on us on the day!! hehe! I like the latter option but I'm evil like that!
I think the colours go well together as there's at least one colour of each in every quarter, the patterns may not go together in everyone's opinion but I like the clash. I've still got lots of plain fat quarters to go with them in matching colours as don't know how many different patterns I may need for the next project. Ooooooh! I'm excited!
I've also been a very lucky bunny and had a present of buttons from J's mum, she brought them back from their holidays in France last week and I love them!
|White packet of loveliness! Buttons in shades of blue, green and pink enamel and two cream with flower patterns on them|
Apparently I would have broken the bank going into the shop where she found these as she said she'd never seen so many buttons and I would have been in heaven! *Sigh* Have no idea what they're going to be used for yet, I'm slightly tempted to make the enamel ones into a necklace...otherwise skirts with button decorations perhaps as there's only six of the enamel ones.
I had planned to make knickers this weekend as had my lovely knicker pattern from Mrs Scruffy Badger but when I got to the market stall they didn't have any knicker elastic like the stuff we'd used in the class, just that stringy stuff that doesn't look very enticing so have been trawling Etsy and have seen some amazing colours and patterns on elastic and was just glad the battery went on my phone before I could buy the lot last night! I suppose I should have known there would be a wealth of colours out there as can see it on the stuff in my drawer and in the shops but I was amazed at how quickly I found so many lovely things! The wonders of the internet! I was also pleased that it wasn't as expensive as the ladies at the market stall had lead me to believe, phew! Now I just need to measure just how much elastic each pair of knickers needs and work out how much to order.
So sewing plans out the window I'm going to make some Halloween style jewellery for a fair I have next Friday, finger's crossed they turn out as good as they look in my head!! Watch this space!
