happy friday everyone!
after a few setbacks, i'm finally getting to work on christmas sewing projects. i picked up some fabrics last night which are totally adorable and then i got home and realized, UH OH, i completely spaced out and only measured for 1 pot holder each! of course, i want to make matching sets of 2 potholders. sooo i really needed double the fabric. through some crafty placement, i managed to squeeze it all in! how about that! i wasn't able to be as concerned about the placement of the fabric design, but i think it will work out just fine. whew. i'll post photos of the fabrics and hopefully the finished products soon!
so that reminded me, i picked up some fabric when there was a 50% off sale recently and i thought i'd let you see. these will not be used for pot holders!! got any ideas what i should make with each of these?
i think i got around 2 yards of each. they're all very drapey, too. this one might be polyester or some type of blend, but it ended up being only about $6 for 2 yards, so yay! it has several purple colors in it with kind of a medallion print…
and this one was also around $6 for 2 yards. i love the colors (navy, light blue, light green, and little orange dots) and it's a really interesting pattern. hmm a dress maybe?
this next one was a bit of a splurge. i justified the purchase because it was half off, buttttt even at half off it was a lot more than the others. but it's soo pretty. is it silk or maybe a blend with silk? it feels like it. and i think for the price i hope it's some type of silk. maybe another long sleeved alma top?
hopefully i'll get a lot of work done this weekend! then i have 2 days of real work next week and then it's officially vacation for me! oh and my super awesome husband ordered me something super awesome for christmas! any guesses?
