Today I had a slightly mad internet shopping spree. Because why not?!
I used my voucher for Britex Fabrics, which I was lucky enough to win from the Sewing Indie Month bonus prize. After a lot of thought, I finally decided on my fabrics. And all three of them are already planned into projects – wahoo!
So, here they are:
This beautiful polyester caught my eye the minute I saw it. It looks so gorgeous, it’s shades that I wear readily, and goodness the print is rather cute. I got this fabric with the intention of making the Giselle Dress from KateNRose Patterns, which I also won.
This fabric is just so gorgeous, I knew I needed it in my life. I can’t wait to make it into the Ehlen blouse, and I have gorgeous vintage blue buttons that will work perfectly with it. Since it is semi-sheer I’m going to get some plain white cotton to use as an interlining, so it becomes a bit sturdier.
And finally, something just that little bit whacky
Isn’t this tissue knit gorgeous?! I am going to make another Lekala #4245 with this, so only needed to get 1 yard of it. I love having a 1 yard pattern! And it is so comfy, I adore wearing them.
I also had a wee spree on LoveKnitting, getting myself 9 balls of yarn. 9! That’s actually rather a lot for me haha. Three are for a hat for my partner, four are for a hat for me, and two are for a hat for my dad for Father’s Day in September. Once I’ve got those projects up and running, I’ll introduce them.
And, if you are a knitting fan like I and haven’t heard of them, head on over to LoveKnitting and get 15% off your first order – because there’s nothing better than discounts! They have really lovely yarns, in pretty much every colour you could ever want, and have a permanent deal where if you buy 10 yarns of the same brand and shade, you only pay for 9. Score! Makes those big projects a little easier on the pocket
Hope all my southern hemisphere readers are keeping warm, Christchurch is pretty cold tonight! Perfect time to snuggle down with ST:TNG re-reruns and knitting, don’t you think?
