Fabric Shopping

I went into town today to buy fray check, and of course I came home with a whole lot more than that.

Tilda Fabric

First I got this pretty Tilda fabric. Oh how I love Tilda! The blue underneath is a little waxy, I got that to turn into a table cloth to use on the balcony. The weather has been so great, I can't wait to sit out there and enjoy the weather and the view.

Cheap Fabric!

When I went to the next fabric store I discovered they sell scraps of fabric for 15 cents each! So I picked up these scraps scraps that will be perfect for tiny Blythe clothes.

I also bought a new lamp! I love how retro and awesome it looks. I'd have bought a pink one, but the boyfriend is having a hard time dealing with all the pink, so I settled for light blue.

Hopefully I can do some crafting tomorrow! I am in the mood to sew some more. I think I'll make myself a skirt soon too. I saw some great fabric for that today (gingham, another obsession?), I think I'll go get that some time later this week.

Thanks for voting in my poll everyone who did! It seems like everyone has a different opinion! So keep voting please! :)

  1. I desperately need a new desk lamp. The lighting in my bedroom is so poor at night.

    Those are really fun fabrics you picked up. :)

  3. love that lamp! :) I really like the red fabric with the white circles. I have to only bring enough money for 2 metres of fabric when I go to the fabric place, or I buy way more than I need lol
