As you can see from the picture above, I went a little fabric shopping happy recently! I didn't mean to buy this much, but I just couldn't choose!
What do I need this much fabric for, you might ask? Well, I want to start filling up the bags & wallets category in my shop finally, make some new Blythe dresses, and last but not least, make some new clothes for myself!
These have larger prints, and will probably be used for a dresses or skirts for myself. Or maybe a cute apron for upcoming craft markets?
Lots of smaller prints for Blythe clothes, wallets, small clutches and maybe fabric covered button goodies? Some Matryoshka rings maybe? And deer bobby pins?
Unfortunately I got a nice bill from customs when the package came. Boo! :( Do you shop for fabric and other supplies online? Or do you prefer going to an actual store?
And some other exciting sewing related news: I bought myself a serger last week! It's a Bernina 1100D and it's awesome. Look!
I felt a bit like an idiot in the store though. I never used a serger before, and neither did my (sewing savvy) mom who I brought with me. Luckily the lady from the store was really nice and she explained a lot. She showed me how to thread it, and then made me try myself, so we'd be sure I'd be able to do it. It was a lot easier than I expected!
I also got 4 free spools of thread, and I can call anytime within the next year for a free lesson to learn all of the machines possibilities.
So now I have another question for those of you who sew and maybe have sergers: Where do you buy your thread? Does anyone maybe know a sewing supplies wholesaler? (Especially one of you Dutchies maybe?)
