And now that stuff I'm excited about: FABRIC! Some of these are in my stash and some I bought recently. For once in my life, I went to my favorite fabric store and I knew just what I wanted. There was no waffling, or dilly-dallying or internal debate. I knew I wanted wildcat prints and I was determined to get it. I kinda felt like Cruella, with her obsession for Dalmatian fur. I have been compared to her several times in my life, but that's another journal entry.
|My newest acquisition.|
|This is leftover from the S&M looking dress I designed for a fabric store a couple of months ago.|
|The picture does not do it justice at all. This fabric looks and feels so yummy.|
|Difficult to photograph red Crepe and its lining of red Geena.|
And while I was browsing in my favorite fabric store (with wildcat fabric in one hand, already cut) I spotted this:
|Dia De Los Muertos cotton!|
This fabric is going to be a nice, fat bottomed kiss-lock purse one day. Or I could use round bamboo handles, time will tell. I can even use the patched scraps of wildcat print fabric to line it, who knows?
So now I'm torn. Which fabric am I going to use for this Swing Dress? Which wildcat print? Or if the wildcat print is not 40's enough or would not work at all, and I should just stick to the red crepe? Or should I get an entirely different fabric altogether? Decisions, decisions!
