So I just had a kind of overwhelming amount of fabric and sewing goodies come my way, although it was through somewhat unfortunate circumstances. My mother’s friend’s mother sadly passed away the other week, and she had over her many years collected (…hoarded may be the more correct term) a large amount of fabrics. I want to exaggerate the word large. Like… I’m talking about 1000s of different fabrics, and thousands of different bits and bobs. It took a good part of a day to go through, and I came home with 2 of massive boxes full to the brim as well as two large canvas bags worth of fabric, elastic, thread, buttons, stamps, zippers… I’m never going to have to go to spotlight again, that much is true. I’ve already made a pair of shorts using some gorgeous tapestry fabric, and some pinafore shorts/romper thing. There’s a sneaky peek of both on my blog.
Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend.
