Fabric Haul

When I got home from work last night I was greeted by several parcels stuffed to the brim with glorious fabric! After a quick happy dance I gathered it all off and retreated to my lair. If you’re a fabric hoarder like me I urge you to sit back and enjoy while I share my fabric haul!

First up is my selections from Minerva Crafts. I was after some different types of fabric and their selection did not disappoint! I’m still new to this dressmaking malarkey so I stuck to the clearance section and am I happy that I did!

I’m really excited to give these new fabrics a go! I bought 2 metres a piece of the lilac and duck egg jersey and 3 metres of the navy and white stripe as it’s the fabric I’ll be using for the Brigitte dress. Next up is the offerings from Abakhan Fabrics:

SO PRETTY! I really want to make a skirt out of the cupcakes and I think the peachskin would make a great floaty maxi dress! The yellow stripe is destined to be a sundress, I can feel it. I ordered 3 metres each of the cupcakes and peachskin, and then 2 of the yellow stripe so I definitely have a lot to play around with!

I’m so pleased with my fabric finds and I decided that I would add them to a Pinterest board so it would be easy for me to find them again!

Follow Boldly Gold’s board Fabric Stash on Pinterest.

So I’m banned from buying any more fabric for the foreseeable future so I will be consoling myself tonight with a fabulous meal at Stravaigin in Glasgow. Happy weekend everybody!
