After last night's disaster, I watched a few eps of True Blood, knitted and slept it off- to emerge and finish this off in my nightie! Thanks for all the positive comments, too. I'm still fiddling, this one is a leeetle bit too big, but better. Having trouble finding laminated cotton (the oilcloth gives a nasty smell) but I got a good tip from Jenny and decided to go with clear vinyl. In the girl's choice of fabric- in the machine as we speak.
Then I remembered to show you a bit more of the goodies I got with Cam the other day. Can I mention this was one of the cheapest op shopping outings, as I had been expecting to pay for the holiday program for the month that morning, to find it had been taken out in December- so all this was free really (think about it :))
Artex- ahh, the 70's craft, my mum had the set and I remember it being thrown out. These may end up laminated as place mats or something, or in frames- so cute!
I almost yelled out- 'the larger size racks have the most fabric' in the middle of the Brotherhood of St Laurence, thank God manners took over, I do occasionally suffer from foot and mouth though. But here is the proof- a 'housecoat' maybe? Beautiful Poppy fabric, handmade, a skirt in there I think.
and the jeans haul. Did I tell you they were $2 each? Found some Bettina Liano's, but size 27...damn, that was me once. Lots of pockets in this pile....
They are a size 38 waist, so I'm assuming men's. I'm thinking tragic men who wear the waistband around their thighs. Up close, I don't even think the pockets are what I want, but maybe a funny photo for when I need cheering up- I'll see if Little Miss and I fit in a leg each!! But think about the amount of denim I got form just one pair of jeans for $2...hehehehehehe
So it's off to cut out pockets, and plan some more items.....hoping to be at Daylesford market soon. And getting my shop stocked...and selling something from my shop.....
by the way, I am not as angry at the lunchbag pattern now, and will be making some to sell...not for $200. I'll keep you posted.
