Some of you may remember that Lucy over at Charm About You had a fugly fabric party recently. I’ve never not commented so much in my life in order to not end up with some of my bloggy friends’ fugly cast offs, but there was one bundle that I saw that I thought I could actually work with, and amazingly, I won it!
Look at what Alli at B.Yazoo‘s mail fairy sent through to me:
Now in the manner of full disclosure, I should admit that I don’t intend to keep things made with any of these, but here’s what I was thinking for some craft fair stall goodies:
- See those 2 on the far right? I’m seeing those as outer/inner for a cosmetic zippy pouch or two
- The zebras and the stripes? These 2 are actually long quarters, and I’m thinking of combining them for a couple of toy pouches for kids
- The poppies on the greeny background, and it’s neighbour to the left (which are red poppies from the same line, although it’s not too clear in the pic)? I’m seeing as a snappy purse or two as outer and inner
- The remaining red will stay in my stash waiting for its day to come :oD
Thanks Alli :o)
You scored well with this little collection! Not fugly at all!
Love the Zebras and stripes.
What a great win! I don't think they are all that bad, almost every fabric is usable…just have to find the right project!
I have a couple of yards of the poppy. it's going to make a lovely skirt. 🙂
Well those zebras are so cute – I can imagine any number of things in that fabric. Lucky you! xx
Gotta love a good plan!
You did indeed score there! Me too I was holding back except for Hadley's browns but I had a lucky escape!
For some reason I love the zebras!
Oh very calculated!
well thought out, I'd keep the stripes though… like that… 🙂
I am wondering how long your "to do" list is? Over a mile long? Giggle.
I also didn't dare comment on anything in case I accidentally entered a giveaway!!! Like your carefully thought out plans – very clever!
Great win! Love all of the red! I hope you're going to show photos of the projects.
That's actually a very fun selection – loving those zebras
those zebras are great!
Hee hee hee heh heh, I didn't comment a lot that week, too. 😀 But the stuff I did receive were suuuuuper cute!
love the zebras never seen that befor !!
