I just popped into town for a few things and found myself in one of the charity shops. They have a whole craft section in this particular shop. Alot of it is quite old and basically junk, but sometimes there are a few treasures. I had a rummage through the patterns box – 50p per pattern! – and pulled out a few that I thought looked good and I might possibly have a go at at some point in the future.
As I was checking the price again for the lady at the till, I realised there were lots of drawers full of other sewing bits and bobs – buttons, thread, bead, ribbons – so after I’d paid I went back for another rummage. Deep in one of the drawers I found this piece of soft stretch jersey. 2.5 metres of it, originally sold as a remnant from Closs & Hamblin. I’vestill not managed to make anything with jersey, but I couldn’t resist this for only a fiver!
I’ve already got my sewing machine out and I am determined to leap the old stumbling block of ‘what-if-I-mess-it-up?’ and have a go at making a top.
