Yesterday I went to H&L fabric warehouse in Anaheim. It's a supermaket of fabric.
I could have gone crazy but I like to have a pattern in mind before I start loading up on material.
I thought this strange bird fabric was cool but didn't buy it because I couldn't think of anything to make with it. Maybe the lining of a jacket? What do you think? Suggestions?
I also liked this teal print too, but again, wasn't sure what to make with it so I put it back.
These are the three fabrics that I ended up buying, teal knit for a top, pink satin to make my mom a pillowcase and a yard of paprika colored lace to use for trim.
I made this yesterday, a long knit lightweight jacket in cranberry with plum voile trim. Snazzy! Bring on the cold weather.
May your seams be straight!
I cannot count my day complete
'Til needle, thread and fabric meet.
