It all started when I found the Dylon spray starch at Tesco and decided to give it a go (having previously been using the Lakeland stuff in a trigger style bottle). Well, it make the fabric stiffer, but it also made a HUGE mess of the iron, as in, the iron actually stuck to it, a lot. Ugh! So then I had to go and get iron cleaner. I was originally going to head back to Lakeland, but then my erstwhile lunchtime walking buddy said that John Lewis was good for cleaners and things too, which reminded me of their fab sale of Joel Dewberry (@ £5.12/m) so we had to stop by and see if it was still at those ridiculous prices after pay day, and guess what, it was… :oD This is all in the name of future bag making. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it… ;o)
Oh, and for those who are deeply concerned by the iron, I did get some iron cleaner in Lakeland, and some more starch…
Sounds like you ha a good "lunch".
Sounds like there was more "sticking" to your story then you bargained for. Giggle.
Has your weekend begun over there?
I can definitely relate… I often go on a "quick run" for thread or needles and return with a fabric purchase.
Oooooooh, that's a fantastic lunch. Exercise and fabric all at once!
I didn't even know there was such a thing as iron cleaner… once I accidentally melted packing tape onto my iron, and I found out that ironing a damp dryer sheet could get it all off. Woot!
aaarrrgh will you lucky mainland townies stop showing me Dewberry bargain heaven?!!!! Snot fair. (not that I'm jealous or anything..) I just bought the tescos starch, and I dont have any iron cleaner. I take it I'm in trouble… pooo 🙁
Carrying that load would be such good exercise……..
Nothing like lunch time shopping. Especially if it is a sale. I do hope the starch saga is fixed.
i love it when sales last long enough! yay for future bag making, or fabric hoarding… 😉
Send some to me 🙂 bargain shopper!
Well you just had to buy some fabric at that price. Your spray-starch/iron story sounds messy. What sort of iron cleaner do you use? I find it hard to find here.
So basically Tesco blew your monthly budget by making this chain of events happen!
Lucky you, to be able to pick up the Joel Dewberry still on sale. Glad your iron survived!
I must live in area where ironing has fallen out of fashion. I can't find spray starch anywhere. Love the stack of fabric. I could probably make good use of some of those and I have a bit of room in one of my storage containers. Have a happy birthday. Hugs
Oh fab fabrics! wish we had a John Lewis within commuting distance! x
