I couldn't decide on short hair or long hair today so I did both. Which do you like best?
So I just had a kind of overwhelming amount of fabric and sewing goodies come my way, although it was through somewhat unfortunate circumstances. My mother's friend's mother sadly passed away the other week, and she had over her many years collected (...although hoarded may be the more correct term) a large amount of fabrics. I want to exaggerate the word large. Like... I'm talking about 1000s of different fabrics, and thousands of different bits and bobs and sewing stuff. It took a good part of a day to go through, and I came home with 2 super large boxes and and two massive canvas bags worth of fabric, elastic, thread, buttons, stamps, zippers... I'm never going to have to go to spotlight again, that much is true. I've already made a pair of shorts using some gorgeous tapestry fabric, and some plaid pinafore shorts/romper thing. Here's a sneaky peek of both:
Although it's really sad that she passed away, she was obviously a very creative person and I hope she would be happy if she had known all those fabrics she had collected have gone to a good home.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend,
