For my Red Spot Dress I needed a red 60cm invisible zip, and after rummaging through my zip stash to find everything but, I popped along to Global Fabrics to get one.
The big problem with Global Fabrics is that the counter is situated at the rear of the store, so to get there you need to pass through aisles of fabric laden tables. Highway robbery really…
|#1 – ecru silk/elastane cherry print
#2 – navy silk/elastane anchor print
#3 orange cotton voile spot
#4 berry/amethyst/chocolate silk/linen floral print
#5 black/ivory wool spot
#6 blue/turquoise/white cotton print
In keeping with my rule of buying one new fabric per two stash fabrics used, this means I need to have used up twelve stash fabrics recently. I haven’t. Obviously that rule needs changing!
Are you a fabricaholic too? Do you have a large stash that you are trying to sew your way through, but occasionally need a rewarding splurge on something new?
