The OH's sis-in-law has some ancient curtains in the front room that she loves but they're tatty and faded. She would like to replace them with something similar but has been unsuccessful in finding any.
Has anyone seen any curtains/fabric like them. They're a cream background with blue and brown butterfly flower combo pattern.

Thanks everybody but rather than recycling or stuffing stuff I was hoping for ideas on how to use them in a decorative manner  >:)

No worries, I might have a brainwave one day. I have seen an idea for stitching circles of felt onto a cushion cover so that they stick out, they might be suitable for summat in that vein. I will certainly let you know if I come up with an invention  8)

I make a LOT of bias binding, use it endlessly, and every time I slice off the li'l triangles on the edges of the joins I think to myself "there must be a way of using these rather than chuckin em in t'bin".

But how?? They're too small for patchworking, or at least too small for my patience. Any ideas?  :sew:

Fun with Fabric / Re: Can you keep an eye out for plane fabric?

Croftmill do a plane print called sewing room - flying time, it's cotton poplin 112cm wide, quite a good price too.

He might think it's too juvenile though....

In the wardrobe / My summer jacket
« on: April 26, 2019, 18:57:03 PM »
I made a loose jacket for summer, not sure what the fabric is it was donated to me by a friend, I reckon it's a linen blend.

The pattern is Burda easy number 8108 which I've had for ages but didn't fancy tackling as I thought there'd be loads of jiggery pokery involved to get a good fit. Well whaddayaknow, it is perfect as it is.

I love the simple style - me all over  :P - and I can pronounce it my new favourite  :loveit:  The pic shows the contrast fabric I used for the facing and the inside of the pockets, I won't be wearing it pinned back  :o

In the wardrobe / Re: Blue silk skirt- needs a top to match
« on: April 26, 2019, 08:21:03 AM »
@WendyW well done, that's a bargain find. Beautiful colours and a nice shape skirt, I'd go for a straight non-fussy top to balance the skirt hemline, or a shirt with flared sleeves to match the hemline. Do show us when finished  :loveit:

I've made bandanas for dogs, wouldn't be much different, I don't think. I looked on youtube there's various different methods on there. Good luck, it's a cute sentiment  :P

Like it Dani, good fabric choice. I've made these before but I never feel comfortable in them, they tend to 'shift around' when worn. I love to see them though  :loveit:

@WendyW  I decided after last week that I am no longer making any more knit/stretch/jersey garments of any kind. I have no experience of either of the kind of fabrics you mentioned but they sound hellish. I am officially a stretch wimp, no more  :'(

In the wardrobe / Re: Pink skirt using bamboo fabric
« on: April 22, 2019, 19:23:28 PM »
I wish I could make useful things ... to wear specifically as I live in the same 2 sweatshirts and jog bottoms my entire life but alas (and alack) I think it is too late for me
For a long time I was terrified (don't know why) of making clothes and would only make cushion covers, window blinds etc. but once I started I got hooked. Give it a go, girl  :loveit:
