A dear friend, her partner and new baby boy visited today. I thought they might like some new bibs (made yesterday). The blue one is my Fabulous Fifties Bib and the other is a little snap-closure one I make sometimes. I was right... they loved them!
The dog print and its co-ordinating paw prints (on the binding) is something like*** Paws and Whiskers (I THINK a Kauffman print...?) from GJ's - on sale for only $8 per metre - and I bought mine at the 25% off sale. Yay! I love GJ's!! (And no - I don't have shares in the company!!).
The red print is from the Wee Play range from Moda.
*** I can never be too sure of print ranges these days, because before I start using a fabric I cut off the selvedges to send to Jodie, and then instantly forget from whence the fabric came. But I think seeing what Jodie comes up with is MORE than compensation for my failure as a fabric-geek.... don't you?
I've also been playing with my new patternmaking project and a few little fiddly origami things. I've only used fabrics that I'm not precious about - just to test the processes - and strangely enough, I believe they'll do as Christmas decorations next year.
I'm not through trying all the designs I picked out to try and already I'm getting ideas about mutating the forms of these lovely Japanese designs.... thinking raw edge and unusual fabric combinations....probably a bit of assymmetry... ???
SO MUCH TO DO ...and less than a week before reality kicks in again. We open for business again on the 12th Jan. Yikes!
