How is everyone's Thursday?
I had my scan - pic is on my Instagram if you want a nosey - everything is all fine, seeing 'normal' written over all the information is a great relief. Unfortunately Baby did not behave well and the sonographer wasn't 100% sure of gender but was 75% sure was a little girl! Very exciting and we have already started to refer to the baby as 'She' - definitely better than 'It'!
Now, since my first scan I have been very restrained, or so it has felt with the amount I want to buy. Especially fabric wise...but on prepping photos for this doesn't feel like I have been very refrained but hey ho!
So these first items were from this eBay seller; they are being posted from South Korea and not yet arrived, as soon as they have I will update this as to comment on their quality, and this seller has so many gorgeous fabrics I am hoping they are as lovely as they look so I can buy more!
All of them are 100% cotton and I bought half a metre of each. My total was £16.30 which included £5 delivery. These were bought with unisex in mind and I cannot wait to sew up a pair of rubber duck dungarees!
Along side these I have just bought some plain fabrics to try make some full outfits/use remnants up from one of my all time favourite fabric shops Oh Sew Crafty - their customer service is always brilliant and quick delivery (sometimes next day!)
Last week I discovered the Cloth House of Soho has opened a fabric warehouse shop up on the street I work on...this is dangerous!
I bought two half a metre lengths:
|A stretch denim|
|A thicker canvas-type cotton|
I then went and left them on the tube!!!!!!!! Devastated! But I have to say I went back today and replaced them as was so upset!
I have bought a dark teal cotton to go with the canvas from Oh Sew Crafty too - really hard to tell on colours on screen if it will match but I am hoping so!
This gorgeous jersey remnant that measures 80cm x 145cm was only £2.50! I am just going to overlock the edges and sew down into a blanket, it is so soft and snuggly and seems such a shame to not utilise both sides of the fabric!
And finally another remnant 100cm x 150cm for £3! Not too sure what this is destined for yet!
Oh so very exciting!
