Susana...That's beautiful!

How wonderful to have a man who says he'd buy it just to have it...we could all do with someone who understands that.

I shall watch with interest as you use this fabric. I'd be scared to put the scissors to it.

Sandra!
I am  nervous about cutting into this as well. I searched all over town for some heavy denim to make a test piece.  I wanted something  that has little drape, just like this fabric.
 I may just cut it.
Life is short, eat dessert first, then cut the good fabric!

Yep Fran you spotted it!  Pricey stuff, so there isn't much, but I'm inspired to make a sleeve out of it...very apt!

I think I have a FQ of Japanese fabric in my stash so could I make a handbag and be in the sewalong with that?

OK after a lot of searching I've found it, so this is my main fabric and I'm thinking of using a forest green 2 tone taffeta to go with it and make some kind of daily use bag to glam up the shopping!
If I'm waffling it's cos I think I have to post 5 times to be in the sewalong - it's the devil being a newbie and not know what you're doing!!

Oh that's gorgeous!

I'm sure over the whole of June you'll manage 5 posts  :devil: Like I said we don't bite, except for DementedFairy.

Love that red fabric Lizzielogs.  Think I have something similar.  Think I'll try and join in this sewalong, as I have quite a few bits of Japanese fabric.  Won't be able to start until 2nd week in June, but hopefully should manage something. 

Do we have to post 5 times in 'this' thread or will there be another thread started when the comp begins?
