Here's my latest purchase.
The first two prints with the obvious wine motif are destined to be turned into gifts. I knew what day they were supposed to arrive by UPS but when I got home they still weren't here. An hour or so later I thought I heard the rumble of a truck outside my house but no one knocked at my door.
Imagine my surprise when I found this lying by my front door when I went to go for my run. Why my UPS guy didn't knock is beyond me. I'm just glad I ventured out or this would have sat on my front porch until morning.
The colors are so rich, I just love them!
This is what the wine fabrics are destined to become. This came in the mail yesterday and I forgot how nice KWIK SEW patterns are. I've made countless shirts and kid clothes over the years, all with great success.
I'm thinking burgundy would be a good choice for the vests but I can't help but wonder if the bottom part (the print) should be underlined (2 layers) for ooomph. An apron (even a cute one) is designed to protect and I don't see one layer of cotton doing the job.
I don't know if I can even explain why I bought this particular print. All I can say is that when I found it I said "Bingo!"
I have a feeling that even when the project that I have planned for this is done, there will be some head shaking and serious doubts about my sanity.
I found these prints at J & O Fabric Center. They have tons of novelty prints. This isn't the first order I've placed and it won't be the last. Check them out sometime.
