Fun with Fabric / Re: PLU and Fleece? Advice on fabrics please!

How about soft shell fleece, light but wonderfully warm and cosy.

It’s showerproof not fully waterproof, but it’s very difficult to make a handmade item fully waterproof anyway.

I was very naughty in Bradford  0_0 0_0.

Two lots of fabric for GD plus some odds and sods of trimming as I have to make her look like the Staypuft man from Ghostbusters in a couple of weeks.

The trouble was I also bought some beautiful heavyweight denim for a skirt and a lovely fine grey denim which was intended for a shirt for DH but may get diverted my way. Also a remnant of georgette that will make a lovely blouse.

On the plus side this weekend I used a grand total of half a meter plus a scrap of sheeting to create this as a toile for GD.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

That’s lovely @Fiona M   

I looked at that pattern when it was released but wasn’t sure about it. I may have to reassess.

Number 2 for me.

The fabric is absolutely lovely and the simple lines of of the second coat will show it off to great advantage.

I am going on a trip tomorrow with my sewing group, The Shuttle at Shipley and then Bombay Stores.

My plan is to only buy for my baby GD, please help me be strong.

Excuse me @justpottering I have just publicly declared my weight and have confirmed  I’m on a diet.

You’ve just put an awful lot of temptation in my way >:)

Good job I’m busy tomorrow or I might just be on my way south.

I've just ordered the Carnegie dress and the Canterbury skirt as my freebie.

Pretty good value at £6.85 I think. 0_0

You should have my pics Imi and the quilt should be with you tomorrow or Wednesday.

You are looking at the 3 day course at the bottom of the page Ella???

Which obviously should be followed by the next 6 month Jewel Quilt course ?  :devil:

Would be rude not to :devil:
