Jewel fluffs

It's all over the sewing table, the floor and the ironing board. Gah! The fricking fabric frays (say that out loud ten times, he he he) like there's no tomorrow. Who would've thought I'd be attempting to sew with swishy fabric this soon....and polyester, no less. But then again, who among you would even try to pull away from this pile? No, Jim. Not as we know it.


That's right. Polyester comes in woven jacquards, except I've never seen their ilk in fabric shops. Just on finished garments. This lot was unearthed from my mum's stash to add some zing into some sewing.

I'm cutting my teeth into some meaty sewing. This isn't my usual whip-it-up-in-no-time project. Hence, the absence from blog-land. I reckon I've got another week of daytime naps to finish this one. Here's a sneak peek.


Hope your week is good. Cheerio!
