…or how my friends are huge enablers! It doesn’t help that I’m a fabric hoarder, as well.
These are curtains which my friend, the one moving to Ireland, gave me because they wouldn’t fit in the suitcase with other things. She even washed them so that I don’t have to.
Please keep in mind that this is folded multiple times, as there was no way the actual size could fit in the frame. I especially love the blue fabric, that I’ll most likely use for tote bags of different sizes. I plan on trimming those edges first, and then start planning how to best make use of the print.
I also have a confession: I cheated. On Monday, as my dad drove my mom to work, I couldn’t resist the call of sewing, so I started playing with the small pouch. White lining with pockets and black lace on top. I really love the effect. I’m not 100% satisfied with how it turned out because I was hand sewing it. One of these days I’ll cheat again and use my sewing machine.
What’s on your cutting mat?
