My Creative Space

Today is a display of many creative spaces to come.  We went out to my parent's house over the weekend and I came home with a huge pile of fabric!

 Swim suit material!  I made a suit for E last year.  Ready to try again, and maybe for me, too?

 Corduroy, flannel and some interesting polys.

 Knits.

 More polys.  I am thinking a couple of circle skirts in this pile, for me!  And check out the vintage woven on the bottom.  I'll have to think about that one for a while.

 Lots of orange, gauzy material.  Don't have a clue what I'll do with it.  Maybe E wants to be a carrot for Halloween?

A close-up of the flannel.  It is British Soldiers.  Way cool.  I washed it up and it's super soft.  I am going to see if I can squeeze some jammie pants out of it for Mr. Riley.  Otherwise, maybe a quilt, I'd hate to lose any of the images!


And check this out!  Another knit.  I've got 2-3 yards, 60" wide of this stuff.  I don't even know what to do with it.  It's so crazy!   Any suggestions?  I don't even know if it's a boy or girl fabric.


Stop by here to see more creative spaces!

The bee fabric is the weirdest ever! It's sort of "grandma's flower garden meets ninja bee." Weird! PJs or T-shirts for the boys? Pillowcases? Dress-up clothes?

I really adore that bee fabric. It seems to cute to cut up. Maybe a pillow or just stretch it on a canvas. Just adorable. Pruxxx
