I wish I could come by here more often, but with all the quarantined together time with family now I don’t seem to have as many opportunities as I would have imagined at the beginning. As I was going along today, finishing up some work on placemat and napkin sets I had a momentary freak out about a pile of fabric that had taken over the corner of my sewing table. I was quite literally sewing in a tiny gap between the pile and the end of my sewing machine. It was MADDENING!
So, I finally went through that pile and organized it for it’s intended use. I had been putting this off because, being upholstery fabrics they are very thick. I kept thinking these needed to wait to become something for the fall. Well, I’m sure that time of year will be here before I know it, so I lit the fire!
Here is my heaping pile of both new and vintage heavy upholstery fabrics.
I did not include the lighter weight pile because they are all larger in size and seem like they would be easy to make pillows. What I envision for this smaller stuff is a Boho-style patchwork made into fun tote and handbags. We will see how this all plays out. For now, I will share the pictures from my cutting table!
Do you have any sewing or crafting plans taking shape?
Thanks for stopping by!
