Fabrics In

When So Sew English had their holiday sale, I decided to take advantage. Not only did I find a great woven that was perfect for an upcoming project (not shown because I can’t reveal it yet), but I snagged a cute bundle (the polka dot and “I love to sew” French terry) and another mystery bundle as well. Here’s what was inside.

Starting from the top: A coral single brushed poly, an animal print rayon (it seems very similar, if not the same, as the bundle I got in September), and a chartreuse knit that is very close in color to the French terry I received late last year.

I’ve decided I’ve got to hop on making something with these animal prints – not only do they match my shoes (seen in this photo), but I’ve got enough to make several projects. I’m also pretty excited about the chartreuse… I wound up using the French Terry version for a Creative Machine Embroidery project and not only loved the way it turned out, but thought the color looked pretty good with my skin tone.
