A couple years ago, dear sweet Julie Pickles found a poplin Munki Munki sleeve of Heather Ross's Fish in Bags and sent it ot me. Because she's amazing. I've used three of the fish, fussy cut, but have been terribly scared to use the rest of the sleeve! The poplin is soft and smooth, and it's nearly impossible to find the original yardage.
So I've been drooling over this fabric and petting it endlessly for oh, two years. I finally bit the bullet and bought a set of munki munki pjs so I could have some more, which, of course, enabled me to use a bit more of what I already have, and I made myself a perfect little clutch!!! I adore it. Julie's bag making is rubbing off on me, I keep making myself clutches and bags lately.
And how adorable are these fish with the DS quilts prints from Joann's??
Of course, now that it's done, I'm just going to keep petting what I have left. I'm sure I won't use any more until I buy more. It's a sickness, I think. (A sickness you can share, if you want - I put some of the pj parts in my etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/LittleShopOfHorace) to help recoup the cost).
I've actually been sewing a lot lately... working on a new pattern, using Riley Blake's Neon fabrics. That's coming in the next few weeks! I also have been testing Julie's patterns, including a new one she's hoping to release soon too :)
