Having gotten one of these "out of the way", I took the opportunity to duck into Spotlight this morning, sans kids, since my husband was (!!!!) home, and managed to pick up all this fabric in one hour exactly!
Talk about efficient!
To be fair, I had a specific plan in mind; purchase cotton fabric, with matching lining for some of it, and specifically, look in the quilting clearance section, for suitable prints. I took my KS pattern with me, so I knew I needed about 2 metres of fabric for each print.
A neutral pattern, for boy or girl, with bright bold colours, which I really like, as well as the geometric pattern.
This is probably the most boy-ish print of all. I hope matching up the rows won't be too much of an issue!
Now the girl prints...
So I should be all set.
Also on the cards this coming month, in addition to these sling/ swaddler sets,
1. 3-4 cloth nappy "sampler" for a friend who is interested in cloth nappying, and who is due mid March.
2. finishing off the singlets and undies I cut out for my 4 yo daughter over a month ago
3. this waste free lunch bag that I bought and paid for 2 days ago and am having difficulty accessing to download...we'll get there. Once I do, I also intend to enter this into the Pattern Review March Handbag Contest if at all possible.
So, big things planned. Now to see how much I can realistically accomplish.
