Sham Shui Po has offered up some really unusual fabric finds when Zoe and I have been out exploring Hong Kong. There is so much different fabric here to choose from. I love natural fibres and prefer to be sewing with 100% cottons and linens. When I found these two fabrics though, I had to embrace the polyester.
I think they will be perfect Christmas presents for some special little girls in my life, who love pink and sparkly things.
This bunting has taken me over two months to complete. The pink fabric is quite awful to cut accurately, it frays easily and the little bits stick to everything. I mean everything. I have not really enjoyed working with this fabric. I wanted the comfort zone of my usual 100% cotton fabric.
Along the way, I also found these two fabrics (more polyesters). I had intended to include them, but I think they don't fit with the pink and sparkly bunting.
They make gorgeous buntings on their own (and possibly together, now I see them side by side above) just not with the pink and sparkly bunting. What do you think?
Have a lovely Creative Space day.
