One thing I don't enjoy about project making is going to the store to get that one missing item. And then going again to get that other item. And then again, because I got the wrong item. I just want to pick up and get sewing whenever the mood and opportunity for free time strikes.
I have to drive to the "city" twice a week for swim class for the kids, so I've been taking advantage of that to stop by the fabric store and pick up fabrics and supplies. I really don't want to spend ten dollars in gas just to go buy a zipper or a matching spool of thread. I also found a new (for me) online fabric store, BanberryPlace.com, with a lot of great sale fabrics. Here are the some of the goods.
|An assortment of half to one yard piece of mostly sale fabric from BanberryPlace.com|
|I broke down and got this expensive knit fabric I saw on Ottobre's Etsy shop but with free shipping from Banberry. |
Problem is that it's hard to find matching ribbing.
|This was also on sale. I got several yards with the intention to make valances for the kitchen window and the Ottobre Velma Skirt for Monkey Pants.|
|I got this pattern and this fabric spur of the moment. Not a print or fabric (it's very sheer) I would normally pick out but I thought I might try View B with it. Pickings are slim for apparel fabric at JoAnn.|
Now if I can just find some room to store all this. I hope my good intentions don't fail me. I have a lot of stuff to sew now.
