A bunch of new supplies and fabric (finally) arrived – between mix-ups and the post office holding some of my packages hostage, it seems like I’ve been waiting awhile. Of course, I neglected to snap a photo of the fabric before I threw it into the wash, but I did get some vinyls in there:
As you can see, I’ve decided to take up making my own zippers (the zipper tape I bought got cropped out of the picture). I think in the long run it will be less expensive and definitely more personalized. I wound up snagging some “basic” pulls along with several “themed” styles (like Wonder Woman). One thing that I like about these are the weight, they are definitely beefier that what you can get in stores. The glitter piping? Those were a whim purchase, but I’m sorry that I didn’t order more…. it’s FABULOUS! Photos do not do the sparkle justice.
But what I’m currently most excited about is my own version of a Baja Poncho hoodie (I suppose I’m being nostalgic about this since this was quite the rage when I was in college). For my version, I picked up So Sew English’s Men’s Oceanside Hoodie and this textured stripe double knit. Not only is this fabric is nice and thick, but incredibly soft – I’m pretty sure those ponchos in my college days were woven out of burlap. LOL
