Stash busting is a very commendable enterprise! There are whole contests out there about who reduces their stash the most. But one the other hand that means no fabric shopping. I mean, NO MORE FABRIC SHOPPING!!! So that’s where I fall off the band waggon of stash busting. I love fabric shopping – and I think my stash is in no way big enough! There are even fabrics which I’m sure I don’t have!
You can see I am working up to a confession… Yes, I went to the fabric market in Fürth, which takes place twice a year and is the largest in my region, again. And when I say I went, I did really go!
So what did I get?
Orange and navy wool cloth – you can’t go wrong with orange and navy wool, don’t you think? Especially not at 4 € a metre. And the black and grey satin I needed because it is Frocktober and I need to make a dress! And cream lining – everybody needs cream lining in their lives!
The “I really don’t need this but I have fallen in love with it” purchase: Butterfly upholstery fabric. I might make this into a statement A line skirt – do you think the statement I am making might be “I am mad?”. Alternatively maybe a bag?
Do you ever go (slightly) overboard when fabric shopping? Or do you shop what you need when you need it?
