    Hi I was at Bowood too but didn’t feel brave enough to come and say hi – I will next year. I loved all the fabrics they were selling but restrained myself as I had no projects in mind at present. Can’t wait to see your completed jackets.

    Just a heads up about the African Wax Print Fabric. The reason it's stiff is because they use wax to create the design. This not only makes it look newer for longer which is desirable in Africa, but gives it it shape – UNTIL YOU WASH IT. Once it's washed it's much softer, and is like a thick cotton, but not structured at all. It also won't be exactly the same on both sides, if you look closely, it will be slightly different, and there is a wrong and right side.

    Wow, amazing fabrics again! I bought a wax print fabric the other day and did get some info on how to wash it (by hand, maybe using a little vinegar), but could you let me know how you wash it and how it came out of the wash? That would be great thank you! (I am planning to make a structured wrap dress btw, from one of my simplicity magazines).

    I can so see why you bought a second denim fabric; it's awesome! I looked on fabricking's site and they have some beautiful viscose as well, however, there is no description of fabric width, weight, or content. Am I looking in the wrong place?
    Your African print is amazing! I couldn't find it online 🙁 but they had a couple of other prints I really liked. How about making a denim or bomber jacket?

    If you aren’t a subscriber to Emily Maust’s YouTube channel you should check it out. She lives in Africa and has little access to any fabric other than African prints. She makes everything out of it.

    Love all the fabrics! The denim jackets will look awesome in that pattern. You could even use some of the embroidery one for pockets and cuffs for the plain one. Mix it up a bit and have several looks. Can’t wait to see the jackets. The African print is gorgeous. A structured dress would be pretty. Even dungarees would be pretty out of that fabric. Sky is the limit! I’m sure you will come up with something amazing.
    🌸🦋🌸 Happy Week 🌸🦋🌸
