I’m always excited by a parcel in the post, non the more so when I receive my parcel from Minerva Crafts containing the materials for my next 3 month’s makes as an Minerva blogger.
Would you like to see what I have in mind?
Ordering online, I find that sometimes the fabrics I request don’t actually match the pattern I had in mind and I have to rethink a project or two. But this time I think I’ve got my pattern and fabric matched pretty well.
First up is this retro print blue turquoise and cream stretch cotton canvas designer dress fabric
This, I plan to make up as this burda shift dress. I had planned to use this pattern last time but the cotton I ordered just didn’t have enough body to hold the shape.
The stretch cotton canvas will be perfect, I think.
Next on my list is another Myrtle. Do you remember this one?
Well I love it so much I ordered this absolutely gorgeous ivory and navy leaf print polyester dress fabric to make another.
It is slightly heavier than the fabric I used before but has a particularly pleasing drape. I think it will look quite classy!
And last but not least is this lovely heavy red crepe.
I’m going to make another True Bias Sutton Blouse.
I wear this a lot for work so fancy another one. The crepe will be quite warm which be perfect for when I make this one up late August. It is rare that a choose a solid colour over a print but the seams in this blouse will give it some interest.
So what do you think?
So much loveliness.
Love, Lucie x
