I love getting mail. Especially sewing mail.
Yesterday I had not one, but two notices in my mailbox that I’d missed a package delivery. Yay! Today I picked up my treasures. The first is a set of clamp-on hooks and eyes from Sew True Supply. I’m sure I could have hunted these things down in the fashion district, but I honestly couldn’t be bothered wandering from store to store downtown. This city needs the perfect one-stop-notions-shopping superstore, because it’s tedious buying invisible zippers from one place only to have to walk down the street 6 blocks to get that perfect interfacing that can’t be found anywhere else at a decent price.
I’m looking forward to using these little darlings on my skirts and pants. I always like the look of the RTW hooks and eyes versus the hand-done sew-in ones.
And the other little treat? My latest order from EmmaOneSock.com.
Clockwise from the top left is a jersey feather print destined for a summer dress (or top); an espresso python print stretch denim destined for pants or jeans; a very noticeable copper stretch twill that I had originally intended for a skirt, but it’s a NOTICE ME type of fabric, so I might re-think this one; and last, a medallion print rayon jersey that will be a summer top. I love the colours!
Now let’s pray that I can actually get these things sewn up. I’m always adding projects to my list and never getting around to starting them.
One thought on “Surprises for me!”
I love your fabric choices. It makes me want to rush over to Emma One Sock! But I shall resist and keep sewing my own stash. Can’t wait to see what you make.
