Stash additions - Joy's Fabric Warehouse

Friday, December 19, 2014

We are done!!  No more work, school or sport for 2014.  We're all completely exhausted and really looking forward to the holiday break :)

Last month Wade and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in one of my favourite places in the world - Torquay.  On the way home we stopped in at Joy's Fabric Warehouse in Geelong.

It's a nice sized shop with a good range of fabrics - I visited in the middle of a thunderstorm which seems to have influenced the fabrics I chose!



From left to right I bought a coated cotton drill, a soft knit blend (it's so soft I thought it was poly, but it definitely has a good amount of wool in it), moleskin, a beautiful woven bamboo/silk blend and a fine stretch mesh.

I'm planning on the coated drill becoming a pair of Ginger jeans and hopefully a Moss mini, the knit has already been sewn up, the moleskin is for another pair of Ginger's, no idea what I'm doing with the bamboo/silk but it felt so amazing I couldn't leave it, and the mesh was bought for lingerie - I'm thinking the Watson bra might be a good option.

I've managed only the most minimal of sewing lately so I'm looking forward to spending some quality time in my sewing room over the next few weeks.
