I shouldn't be posting again when I am so far behind online, but this will be a quick. ;) Karma tried to claim one of the JoAnn's boxes. It was just a bit too small for her and she lost interest pretty quickly.
Rubye wondered where the fabric was in my order--LOL! So I decided to take most of the fabric out of the box for some pics. I bought most of these around 14-15 years ago when I worked in an office and needed skirts, vests, and jackets to wear every day. Some of it is older than that--a couple newer. You know how when you are sewing regularly and you see something pretty that you fall in love with...LOL!
The black and rusty brown fabrics on the left are faux suede.
I knew any of these could make pretty journal covers--but some of the fabric is quite thin and that's why I wanted the heavyweight fusible interfacing. Might be a way to use a thin chipboard insert if the interfacing doesn't work?
The lighter fabric kept having a glare, so here's a better shot by itself. It's like a floral watercolor!
So this is why I didn't need to buy any fabric. ;) Been carrying a box full around for years. So long that I can't remember what I had planned to make with which fabric and which pattern. Especially since I occasionally bought a couple yards just because with no specific pattern in mind. I can't work anywhere anymore--and, truth, I'm much fluffier than I was 15 years ago--so I can use it for whatever I feel like. ;)
Anyways, didn't sleep much at all last night, either.
Looks like I might not catch up too much online today, either.
I will eventually. I promise. :)
Quiet, noodle weekend here.
Hope it's a good one your way. :)
