I just returned from a trip to New York City, and while there visited a wonderful shop called Purl located in the Soho area. I’ll blog in more detail about this wonderful shop later, but in the mean time I thought I’d share my two purchases.
First up, more oil cloth (I just love this stuff).
I’ve never seen this one before but here’s what on the selvage edge.
They weren’t giving it away so I only bought 1/2 yard. I think I’ll just make a really simple tote bag and let the fabric speak for itself.
Next, this wonderful Liberty of London fabric. It’s 60” wide and although it feels like a really fine quality cotton, it’s actually wool.
This, I think, will find its life with me to be as a “spectacular” lining in a purse. Last year when I went to Mood in New York City, I picked up, what I think will be the perfect outside fabric. I blogged about our visit to Mood back in October 2009, on our vacation blog, here.
I haven’t been in my sewing room for over a week so tomorrow, watch out, I’m sewing again.
