I don't know where to start so I will just dive in and show you what I got.........
|100% cotton, 60" wide £5 per metre and no flaws. Destined to become two more 'Edna' dresses|
|A bit of an indulgence at £8 per metre and I bought two metres to make a bag for my sewing machine. I can get this type of fabric from Derby market but it is £10 a metre.|
|Polycottons for crafting projects. £2 per metre so no cheaper than I can get it on Derby market but they did have a fantastic range.|
|The navy polycotton £2 per metre will become pyjamas for Andy and the white on white floral will be summer tops for Ruby and maybe a little dress for Marlowe.|
|Dark and light olive striped jersey. £2 per metre. I don't know what I am going to do with this....maybe a loose t shirt for summer. I got three metres and at 60" wide I should get two out of it.|
|Three dress zips for £2 and the thread cops were £1 each.|
|I was over the moon to find these summer dress/tops for wearing over leggings. Two for £10 so I bought four as summer will probably be just about over by the time I go again. They fit beautifully.|
I also got five metres of 60" wide black jersey for £10 which I am going to use to make a sleeveless cardigan and probably a skirt.
There were things I didn't find from my list.....embroidery threads.....I wanted to stock up on white and cream, bias binding....pretty shocking that not one of the haberdashery stalls had this and no flat waistband webbing for Andy's pj's so I will have to take a trip to Derby for those things.
Today my legs and shoulders ache like hell so I am just pottering around at home and trying to find places to put all this fabric until I can get to the projects I will be using it on.
Ruby is due for tea today so I can measure her up for the elastic for the waistband of her skirt and that can get finished. All the strips are sewn together for the Worn and Washed quilt....they just need trimming up before I make them into the quilt top and then I will get the pj's done for His Nibs which should only take an hour at the most although he won't be able to wear them until I get the webbing for the waistband.
Gosh I am going to be busy.....and I am so looking forward to it.
Hope you are all having a lovely day.
