I really wanted to work with the stash for my future sewing projects. But it just couldn’t happen. Or, rather, I was too tempted by these fabrics to stick with the program.
Stretch Rayon Blend Jersey Knit Stripe Grey :: Rayon Blend Suiting Navy :: Wool/Cashmere Blend Melton Suiting Midnight
Wool Blend Suiting Darkest Navy :: Navy Stretch Cotton Sateen :: Stretch Rayon Blend Jersey Navy
100% Crepe Wool Suting Teal :: Stretch Charmeuse Satin Navy :: I Heart Linen Blend Cute Bots Pink
I Heart Linen Blend Cute Bots Blue :: Celebrate Seuss Allover Yellow :: Michael Miller Children at Play Balloon Aqua
Lots of blue!! I like a nice dark navy more than black. And I love suiting fabrics, wool and things with stretch. There is one fabric (a navy and green herringbone) that was missing from the box. I order from Fabric.com a LOT and this has never happened before. I contacted them today, they had more and have sent it off already.
Of course, I selected each item with a plan, let’s see if they meet their destiny. The Cute Bots Linen blend is for something springy for the kids and the Seuss fabric is for new pj bottoms. I haven’t made them any in a while. The first pairs I made are comically split down the legs and worn at the knees.
The balloon fabric is for me ;o) Check out this version of Colette patterns Macaroon and you’ll be ordering this for yourself, too.
The melton cash/wool blend will hopefully become a jacket (maybe two, it’s very wide). I ordered these two patterns from etsy that would look great in it.
The various suiting fabrics and the stretch sateen should work with any number of patterns I already own. There are a few I would really like to tackle (Macaroon, Advance 3372, Vogue 412, Simplicity 7796 ) and the rayon blends are always welcome in my sewing room. They are too thin for dresses, I believe. This is always a possibility when ordering online, but I will use them nonetheless. The teal crepe is a circle skirt in my minds eye and the satin’s a lovely full sleeved blouse.
For now, like all new fabric purchases, they are laid out and fawned over like newborn babes, lol. Speaking of babes, I have a sicky poo one, a headache and I didn’t get much sleep last night as he was up and down every hour or so. Fingers crossed for tonight people.
