Fabrics

this vignette asked how I got the Burberry fabric (shown in my previous post) for $7/yard. Good question! Denver Fabrics used to have a larger selection of Burberry fabric than what they've currently got. The prices on the wool coatings varied in a way that didn't make sense really; some, including the plaid grey colorway, were as low as $7/yard. I assumed it must have been a typo, so I quickly ordered some before they could change it. This was back in June 2008.

How adorable is this Alexander Henry cotton print? It's called Perfect Pattern, and it's available at Purl Soho, among other places. How great would this be for a sewing machine cover?

I have the same wool plaid in the charcoal and cream. I've been meaning to lay them out and see if the plaid is off or something. But, I haven't :)

Indeed that is the perfect fabric to make assesories for the sewing area. Great!
I´ve seen may coats in such nice plaids in the stores while shopping yesterday. So you will be up to date whith a high-class wintercoat.
Best regards,
