Someone told me it's all happening at the zoo..

In a fit of productivity between Christmas and New Year, I managed to make up a few dresses from some of the fabric I had sitting in my fabric trolley. I am making some headway with this year's task of using up or getting rid of what fabric I have as well, and have listed a few fabrics, patterns and off-cuts for sale on my Insta-sale page. I'm hoping that by shifting some of the fabrics I know I'm not going to be likely to use, I'll shift my focus to deciding on the projects I want to complete with the fabrics I have left. So far, I've begun a list which is more organised than usual. I tend to just pick up the next fabric and make whatever pops into my head.

So this fabric was a Lewis and Irene one which I picked up on impulse when I popped into my local haberdasher to buy some interfacing. I couldn't resist the cute zoo animal print. Lewis and Irene do some lovely designs and I'm super excited for some of their new 2016 fabrics to arrive, so I'd better get working my way through my fabric stash!

    1. Haha, thanks. I guess I'm used to it and tend to make the same patterns over and over, so it's not too tricky.

  3. I love that fabric! Although hopefully the new ones aren't so tempting that you want to buy them all...

    1. Thanks. I think there are three I'd like when the are released, which isn't until March. So, hopefully I'll have made a decent dent in the fabric stash by then.

    1. Isn't it lovely? I figure it will go with many colours as well as there are so many in the print.

  6. That must be pretty satisfying making progress through the pile and having new lovely things at the end of it : )
