There's no denying I love fabric, just as most of the bloggers I follow and love. However my downfall is that I have so many fabrics I can't bear to use yet, they're still too beautiful to cut up. Therefore some of the untouched fabrics I own are nearly 20 years old.
Sad, scarey or just plain bonkers, I can't help it. I can still pull out these fabrics and hold onto them, remembering when and where I bought most of them and at what stage I was in my own life. I guess they've become keepsakes, but I've always believed that the right purpose for them would present itself. Which in most cases is true (and I still hold out hope for the pure linen knit fabric that I only have 2 metres of..... too beautiful and too expensive not to use!).
So to prove myself right I came across a pattern on Pinterest the other day for a wool bunny. Then digging around my old stash of wool blanket off-cuts I discovered a piece that would fit my pattern perfectly, with little to spare, and enough fringe to make a cotton tail as well.
The girl was stoked.
