New Fabric

For some reason, I have lost my motivation to sew. So, in order to jumpstart it again, I did some fabric shopping yesterday! Joann's was have a President's Day sale, so I got some great deals. Plus, I had gift cards, so this little shopping spree didn't cost me a thing! Here's what I came home with......

The black and blue leaf print will be used for a bag, and I had to replenish my supply of Apples and Pears. The white print with blue and red flowers is a jersey knit that was on the clearance rack. This will make a great summer top - probably using the same pattern as I did here - the striped fabric is a polyester suiting that was also on clearance. I will be using this to muslin some pants (someday!). The print on the right is my favorite - it's a matte jersey and it's so soft and fluid. It will probably make me crazy to sew it, but it was so pretty I had to get it!

I also picked up some patterns. I have always liked the skirt pattern on the right, so I figured I should grab it and add it to my collection. The Cynthia Rowley pattern I grabbed because I liked the simple jacket, although the dress is cute too. The jacket looked relatively easy and would be great for work. Now hopefully I will have the motivation to sew this weekend! I still need to finish off my cowl neck top, that is project #1! :)

I do that from time to time myself!
I don't know when I'll ever get back to garment sewing. I think I burned myself out years ago.hah.a.a
