Time for a review of February’s fabric acquisitions…
A whole lot of vintage sheets:
Fortunately these are allowed as without them my Etsy shop would close and I would have no money to spend on
Some from the charity shop and some from the car boot:
All quite lovely and being chopped up for sale:
I had a little bit of a mishap and bought this:
It was from the car boot and it wasn’t until I got home that I realised it is not actually a vintage sheet but a gorgeous 33″ (selvedge to selvedge) x 120″ piece of brushed cotton/flannel. It will be brilliant for pyjama bottoms or quilt back and for 50p (US$0.83) you can understand why it was an easy mistake to make!
I have also acquired some quilting fabrics by the way of swaps. These were from Pennydog, I sent her Kaffe Fassett woven stripes in return:
And this bundle was from Lily’s Quilts in return for some emergency Kona White.
So another great month if you don’t count the mishap! I’ve not been craving fabric, but I have ordered 2 metres of Botanics Widescreen for a quilt back, that too was allowed to make the quilt for my brothers wedding gift. I’m pretty sure I’ve spent hardly any time browsing fabric shops online and have just deleted any fabric emails, newletters before reading about special offers etc, it’s given me more time to sew, more about that another day!
