And right next to it was some fabulous news print! I adore letters on fabric, and i didn't have any some it was a totally worthwhile purchase.
I bought a metre of light pink minky to back the minky kit quilt that I'm 90% of the way through sewing. I have two seams left and then I can quilt it. I am tempted not to include a wadding as it will be double sided minky which I'm thinking will already be pretty warm. I also bought some satin ribbon to bind it. I admit this is my lazy cheating way to bind. Ribbon is already cut and guaranteed to be the right width without any possibility I will have miss measured. I also love the satin texture as an edge. I think it's a nice textural thing to add to a blankie.
I bought some lovely printed satin that I think will make a stunning skirt and I'm going to cut a half metre to make a wall hanging in my study. This may or may not work. I'll let you know! It was only $10 a metre so it's a bargain. I was tempted to buy an extra metre just so I could have spare.
I bought a couple of metres of a beautiful gauze-y material. I'll need to have a lining under this but I can see it as a gorgeous skirt or dress. It will have to be soft and floaty and feminine.
To help me make things with these lovely dress fabrics (no way can I see either of these going into quilts) I obviously had to buy some patterns! So I got a couple
And then as I was lining up the have everything cut up and pay for it and noticed some lovely sewing books...
They are full of knowledge and challenges so I am hoping to throw myself in and make some of these things. I'm worried they're a little beyond my abilities but I'll give it a go anyway!
I'm sure I must have bought more, because I don't know how this added up to $400. It was a good couple of hours of shopping and I'm hoping to spend the night sewing up a storm!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
Has anyone got stories to tell about crazy shopping sprees?
