I've decided I need a new hobby. I have so many half finished projects, I figured adding a few more won't hurt a thing, except the already crowded spaces in my house.
Ever since I bought and made this pattern, the company I purchased it from has been sending me emails showcasing awesome fabrics. (I bought these fabrics from a local fabric store.)
I am a sucker for pretty things and fabrics are one of my favorites. I have a piece of toile that I've had for about 8 years now. I found it at the Design Center in Washington, DC when I was studying interior design and used it in one of my projects.
Anyway, (D=47*), I found this at Fat Quarters online a few weeks ago.
I bought this coordinated set of fabrics and they are a little bit crazy but I love them all and I plan to use them on smaller items, like a wallet pattern I bought from a Lazy Girl like me, and small accessory bags, like for makeup or personal items in a purse. Mixing and matching wherever I can.
I can't wait to start. Problem is, I have a tiny little sewing machine that I bought years ago for hemming. It's a Singer, but it's a mini. I think it'll hold up to smaller items like the ones I want to make, but when it comes to crafting, I want all the bells and whistles. I see the sewing shops around here use Bernina, so I think I'll ask for one for Christmas.
I'm counting on you, Santa.
