Friday I'm In Love

Hey Peeps!

This Friday's fabric round up consists of these four gorgeous designs....
Globe / Glow In The Dark Stars
Liberty Lodden Lawn / Floral Cotton Lawn

.......I first saw this Globe print fabric on Roisin and fell in love, I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with it myself but I love it. I bought myself some glow in the dark PJ's last year and have been looking for some starry glow in the dark fabric for a dress for ages. I really like this one, I'm thinking a KB V neck dress with glow in the dark bias binding. I saw this Liberty lawn when I was at Liberty's last Christmas (I went to stare at the pretties whilst pressie shopping) I immediately knew I wanted to make a jumpsuit using the KB trouser pattern and the By Hand London Anna V neck bodice but at £22 a metre I walked away. The £13.50 price tag is still expensive but so much more affordable. Lastly this pretty tropical print lawn would make a gorgeous summer dress, I'm really loving these Hawaiian style fabrics at the moment.

I've been sorting through my wardrobes recently trying to reduce the amount of stuff I own (there is a lot of stuff), one of the things I seem to have loads of but never wear are my slogan tee's. Some of them I bought myself and some were gifts but all of them are brilliant. I know I won't ever wear them again and I don't want to get rid of any of them so I thought I would turn them into a quilt top. Here are just some of my collection....
.......I've never made a quilt top before but I think this will be fun, I'm planning on picking Mum's brains when she is back here this July (Mum is an awesome quilter). I recently saw some amazing faux fur fabric in John Lewis which was 150cm wide so I was thinking I could get a 150cm square and use that as the back. Technically it won't be a proper quilt but you get the idea. I've got another "fancy front/geeky back" quilt planned too but that's a secret. What do you do with loved items of clothes that you know you just won't wear anymore?
