I'm back from the brink and the lurgy seems to be abating. Thanks to all those people who left me well wishes. It was so nice to get them.
Today, on my desk...
Some little goodies for some lovely girls. And... this skirt.
I bought it years ago in an Op Shop because I loved the fabric and wanted to turn it into something. I have never quite worked out what to turn it into though. I love the buttons and the binding so I am not sure whether to try to keep the detail of the design or to just try and use the fabric. It really is quite sensational don't you think? It's made in Spain and is 98% cotton with 2% spandex.
Recently I have been inspired by some sewing projects I saw. Firstly there was this brooch keeper (and I do have lots of brooches) over at Quilting Mick. Then I like the way Curly Pops has made this bag and I thought that I could try doing something like that with it. The print is so big and bold that anything I do really needs to use a large section of the material I think so as not to lose the detail.
Anyway, I would love to hear any ideas that people have for what to make with it. It is yearning to be back out there in the world in all its glory. And it definitely won't be in its current incarnation as a mini-skirt (I wish)!!!!
