I have been really spoilt recently. I've had not one, but two lovely parcels from crafty friends.
Sally's parcel contained a vintage pillowcase and duvet cover. I love the purple fabric, it's quite unusual to find vintage fabric in one colourway rather than a riot of colours.
The parcel from Laura Fallulah, was a complete surprise. I've always loved Laura's rose brooches, her hand sewing detail is just beautiful and so neat.
Inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee on BBC 2, I'm going to have a go at making a garment out of the purple fabric from Sally. I thought I would make a Summer dress for my daughter. I just need to track down a nice pattern and get started! I'll post some progress photos and the finished product on here.
Laura and Sally are fabric addicts just like me and it's lovely to pass different pieces of fabric and handmade items onto friends you know will appreciate it!
