I got this bundle of FQs with a gift voucher for Seamstar given to me for my birthday by my lovely sisters-in-law, Jay and Vicki. It was difficult not to spend a fortune in one mad spending spree! The fabrics are beautiful. Though I think I may have found the elusive fabric that'll make the perfect matching dress for my shoes - if I ever decide to buy it, you'll be the first to know. Maybe next month.
I'm going to use these to make my needle roll and a few other little bits if there is any left. Here's a few of my favourites from the bundle.
I especially love the clock print - it is also available in yellow and blue, and I'm thinking it would make a lovely shirt or summer dress. So many plans!
And speaking of other plans - a few months back I brainstormed some dress designs based on some of the women of the DC universe. Super dorky, I know. But I thought, what if you're going to a convention, and you don't want to go in full-on cosplay, but a superhero T and jeans seems too lazy? That's how I came up with a few dresses that channel the essence of certain characters without being obviously 'comic book'. I hope. Now, I'm no good with a pencil and I coloured this sketch using a computer program I'm not familiar with, so it's pretty basic, but you get the idea.

This dress will eventually get made, when I have the time and have had enough practice. But in the meantime it's another project on my ever growing to-do list :)
