Hello everyone. Hope your having a lovely weekend. Finally I decided to venture out of my cave and explore a little. I made the journey to Edinburgh in hopes of finding a gold mine! I’ll be honest here, my hopes weren’t very high after a couple of disappointments. But I travelled down an unknown road being led by my trusty google maps (very tech I know) and I stumble upon a treasure trovel filled with wonders.
Of warm cottons, hand woven tweeds and threads galore! Simple silks and stunning buttons. A fabric crafters dream. And a scary place for those who are just entering the craft.
How soft do these look!! The simpile white and black designs are amazing. Plus the texture was amazing. (May get these next time!!)
These are just some of the gorgeous fabrics that I found within a store known as ‘Edinburgh Fabric’s’ my local habadashery. I’m studying textiles at college and I would love to become a designer. So I thought it would be a great idea to get a little head start on my hand sewing skills. Hand sewn pieces aren’t just gorgeous but the amount of time and patience that goes into a piece. Amazing.
These are the 3 fabrics that I finally settled on. After an hour of looking! These are perfect for quilt making and I got some threads to match. I’m hoping to make square’s from the lighter colours and using the darker flower motif fabric as a boarder piece. Can’t wait to get started but gotta learn the stiches first and get to grips with them. Luckily I have aome less expensive fabric at my hands to play around with.
What projects are you guys working on? Any tips or tricks??
