London Crafting

19 Jun

My 3 week trip to London has been extended a little so whilst I’m here I thought I could use the time to dig out my old sewing machine.  A few extra project supplies were needed so a trip to the shops was the order of the day. I always used to head to John Lewis on Oxford Street to buy my fabric; out of habit more than anything else; but had I done a little more research I would have found Rolls and Rems on Seven Sisters Road.  Its well worth the visit as its crammed full of beautiful fabric suitable for every project you could imagine.  I used to run past it a couple of times a week so I have no idea why I’ve never noticed it before.

I came home with this beautiful elephant print fabric which is already being put to good use, and the green polka dots were found in the remnants bin.  Is there anything more satisfying than a successful rummage through remnants?  The rest of these treats were dug out from my storage.  I have 4 and a half weeks to see whether I can get through them all or not.  Sounds like a great challenge that will keep me more than busy.

LOTS of fabric

And here’s an early glimpse of the elephant (or rather ‘ebalent’ as the intended recipient says) project, including the hand drawn pattern.
