Hope you are having a fab Friday!
Last week, I noticed this piece of vintage fabric, at a well known site that begins with 'E' and ends with 'Y' ;-)
It caught my eye and I wasn't sure what to make of it (let alone what to make with it!)
but it grew on me and so... I snapped it up!
It arrived in super duper, quick time from the USA..and...well...
It is fabulous!
Firstly, it is wool or a wool mix. It is soooo soft yet strong.
It shouted out 'Bag' to me...but I don't do bags! ;-)
But there's a first time for everything!
So I found some thickish cotton fabric for the lining.
Well..to be very very honest, I was not going to blog this as..
I didn't think it was ..umm...good enough!
It was only when Mr S arrived home from work...
'That's as good as some of the things you buy,' he remarked.
So, here it is, hanging proudly in the front porch.
The first bag I have made in a very long time.
The fabric is probably not everyone's cup of tea ..but it's kind of growing on me all the time.
The rest of the day (after my Friday baking!) I've been faffing around with fabric.
I love fabric!
And I've been finishing these...
I'm pretty pleased and I really did have a good excuse to cut up the vintage tablecloth..it was quite bad with age marks.
