A couple of posts ago I mentioned that I was going to have a go at English paper piecing, or patchwork as it's often called. I thought I'd show you the fabric I ordered.
This is the Botanic Garden range by Lewis and Irene, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. There's five different patterns in the range and three colours in each pattern. I ordered seven fat quarters. I think this fabric is so pretty, I especially like the pale yellow floral.
I'm new to buying fabric, sewing isn't usually my thing. I ordered this from You, me and Mabel and it arrived promptly. There was even an extra piece of fabric included in my parcel, a little freebie. I'd messaged Sally, the owner, with a query before I placed my order and she was very helpful and friendly.
Now to start cutting into it and starting the sewing, though it's a little daunting if I'm honest.
Your fabrics are all so pretty, Jo. Thanks for the link to the fabric shop. I suspect I'll be spending some time oohing and aahing at fabric today ... just a for a change! LOLReplyDelete
Good luck and I hope you enjoy it. I have lots of lovely fat quarters but prefer to just look at them, lol. I hate cutting into a pretty piece of fabric. The older I get the more I am realising that I am slightly dotty. lolReplyDelete
Just love that botanical fabric, I don't think I could take scissors to that.
Don't feel daunted - it's a challenge and that can be exciting! Hopefully, you will really enjoy this new hobby and the material you have chosen is lovely. I am still very much a beginner with EPP and it's time to revisit my hexagons for the cushion cover I think, as it is a perfect occupation for autumnal evenings.ReplyDelete
The fabric is beautiful. I was going to order some of it myself but haven't had time. I think I'll do that this evening. It's always daunting cutting into new piece fabric but I also love working with it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful fabic, hope you enjoy the process I know I certainly didReplyDelete
Beautiful fabrics at thr start of a good project, sounds loads of fun.ReplyDelete
Just jump in with both feet and go for it Jo, if you make a mystake it's all a part of the learning process. Those fabrics are beautiful I always buy fat quarters when they have them in Aldi, I never know what I'm going to do with them but it's lovely just getting them out and looking at them haha. Have fun and enjoy! xxReplyDelete
