Fun with Fabric / Velour fabric
« on: September 19, 2020, 15:07:23 PM »
I found this




lovely velour for £3 per yard or £3.30 per metre - I bought in yards since the pattern fabric requirements is expressed that way.  The red is actually cerise and I am going to make view C of



I asked for six yards, but I think the seller gave me the wrong end as I have a lot of fabric.

Fun with Fabric / Fabric suitable for making a cardigan
« on: August 08, 2020, 13:18:15 PM »
I am minded to have a go at the Cashmerette fuller cardigan and bearing in mind that I do not have an overlocker (intentionally) and don't want the frustration of sewing with curly, thin knits, what should I consider?

Thanks peeps.

Welcome Lounge and Information / Emoji suggestion
