K+S Show Haul..

 


So, I mentioned when I wrote about the Knitting and Stitching Show that I'd share my purchases very soon. Finally remembered to take some photos of the things I bought, and thought it would be nice to share my plans for them, too. I don't know whether this will make me feel more "accountable" for these projects and less likely to put them off, but it's got to be worth a try, right...?!

The press passes we were sent made us eligible for a little gift bag full of goodies from the show, which was useful for me as I'd of course forgotten to take a shopping bag with me.

The only thing I purchased from Stoff & Stil was this pretty, sparkly swan patch. I think it irons on, but I'd probably stitch around it too. I have visions of it being on a skirt, inspired by this Boden one, but something which would flatter my shape a little better.
 
This Liberty fabric is just a lovely print, of mountains and clouds and rainbows. It's called Weather Wonderland and was from Fabrics Galore. I think it's destined to become a Sew Over It Betty Dress...if I have enough for the skirt..

I do love Eternal Maker - they always have a lovely stall with some impossible-to-find-anywhere-else Japanese imports. Sarah spied these shifty creatures before I did, but as soon as I'd seen them I had to grab a couple of metres. I'm thinking an Emery dress with short sleeves. The umbrellas are a kind of canvas - perhaps I'll be brave enough to try a Cleo pinafore, but I suspect it's more likely it will become a pair of Turia dunagree shorts.

I knew I wanted to find something vaguely sewing related to use to cover the top of the sewing box stool I bought recently. This canvas weight fabric was super reasonable so I really have no excuses to put off transforming this...over to Google to figure out where to start.

Oh, these zombies are so awesome and I want them to be a 2444, probably. Maybe with a grey Peter Pan collar. I'm loving the idea of collars lately- this cactus print, too, might end up being another 2444 (I'll be all set for #OWOP with all these 2444s!) with the shawl collar addition.
 
I did buy some other things, too, but they're for Xmas presents and therefore can't really be shared. But this is plenty to keep me going. Eep.

  3. Umbrella print Turia dungarees would be so cool! Also love the sewing themed fabric for your stool.
