I know, I know. I try to finish UFOs, I try to reduce my stash of fabrics and work with existing materials. I really have more than enoguh fabric to keep me sewing for at least 3 months. But somehow, I feel a bit like Dory from "Finding Nemo":
I visited my mum and she wanted to buy lining fabric for a coat she is working on (I swear it runs in the family). I simply couldn't resist taking some lonely and teary eyed fabrics with me! Then I visited a fabric market together with friends and went a little berserk, although I did not spend that much money. But I seriously need to sew something otherwise the fabrics take over my room!
The jerseys I got. I'd love to try some of the patterns I already own, but with the broken serger, currently not much sewing is happening -BTW it wasn't the power control. But I got a new one to find that out! Grrrr!- with stretchy fabrics. I have a certain thing for dots and stripes in case you didn't know yet (each 1.5m):
I also got some remnants because. Well actually just because they were cheap and pretty and why not? Black thin cotton for historical stuff (2.5m). Black sweat fabric (1.5m) with white dots woven in for a sweatshirt. And more black sweat (2.5m) for a comfortable stay-the-night-in fishtail or dress. Not sure yet...
Grey stretchy satin with stripes (2m). The fabric is poly something, but it feels rather good and will make a perfect skirt lining!
And the last bit: Fake fur (60cm x 20cm) with an amazing quality which I will use on a jacket from Ottobre 11/2013 if I ever get myself to copy the pattern. Pirate fabric for a gift (0.5m). And stretchy fabric for first underwear trials (1m).
And now I need to get some sewing done this week. Pronto!
