I hope that it stays around this time.
I went to visit a local store, well local as in Atlanta, called the Beehive Co-op. It is a store that rents small spaces inside to artisans of the Atlanta area. Beautiful things and of course things that I could make if I really wanted to but in the back is the place that I wanted to see big time. Whipstitch Fabrics. Awesome fabrics, Here let me show you some of the goodies that I got.
Don't you just love it!!
The Be a man fabric is going to be turned into a Bowling shirt for Reinaldo. The back, sleeves, collar, maybe pocket and sides will be a dark blue to contrast with the blue in the fabric and then two panels down the front that shows the man fabric.
The robot fabric is for Jay. That will be made into pajamas for him. And the Pears and Apples I haven't quite decided what to do with that for Nattie. I am thinking either a tank for her or a dress for one of her dolls.
The sewing fabric is going to be two pillows for me with black on the back, sewing fabric on the front with a black piping around the pillow.
It is funny, most of the time I buy fabric just because I like it but won't have an idea of what to do with it. However with this fabric I knew what I was going to do when I picked it out. I finalized my ideas as I was driving home and now can't think of anything else to do with it.
I am so excited!!
I also made Jay another pair of shorts this time with cargo pockets on the side. He choose the fabric.
This is a nightgown pattern that I fell for. View A is what I was going for. I still have to put the ruffle on at the bottom, and I didn't use white fabric since I have children, but I think that these patterns aren't meant for anyone under 6 feet tall.
