My New Obsession

Early this week I received my shipment of the new Tula Pink line of fabric Night Shade. As soon as I ripped open the box, I knew I was in trouble because theses fabrics are to die for.
Each and every one of them.
Take a peak!

It took all of 0.15865 seconds before my brain was full of ideas for these beauties.
They will make wonderful dresses, skirts, bags, aprons and more!

It took me another 2.3658 seconds before I was ready to dive in and start cutting up the fabrics.

But I had to wait because I had customers in the store, and it’s not polite to ignore them just because I have beautiful fabric.

As soon as things calmed down a bit I got busy sewing, and after a stitch stitch here, and a snip, snip there I had created this:

And this:

For the bag, I used Anna Maria’s Multi-Tasker Tote pattern, and I sure am glad I did because this bag is great!

It’s big and roomy and has front pockets ideal for stashing my phone and keys.

The Apron pattern came from the book The Perfect Apron and I love how the girly flounces contrasts with the spider webs and skulls in the fabric.

If you would also like to have oodles of fun with this fabric, you better stop by Stitchology soon because this stuff is going fast!

Happy sewing!
