Birthday Fabrics

Just a quick post to show you some lovely fabrics that I got for my birthday - Mum has already asked me to make her a stripy tea-cosy using MY fabric as my first proper project on my new machine!!!

We thought this photo might make you smile!

  1. Happy Birthday, Dottie - I hope this comment doesn't vanish like my first attempt, which was MUCH cleverer than this one ;)

    I share your love of books and bookshops, but you've got me beat by a mile in the sewing department! My ancient machine goes forward and backward, that's and fro, only. Yours looks ready to lend its shiny red self to all sorts of creative endeavor. Have fun!!

  2. What a fab looking machine! Hope you have as much fun crafting as your mum does..... I've got two girls and they are just starting to enjoy sewing on the machine too. I hope they don't see this photo of yours, or I'll know what they'll be pestering me for for Christmas!
    Happy Sewing, Plum.

  3. Cant wait to see what you are making.

  4. Oooh, I think if you use your fabric to make a tea cosy for your mum, she'll have to buy you more fabric, don't you?!

    Looking forward to seeing how you get on with your machine.

  5. I really have to think about getting MY 13-yearold her own sewingmachine...

    Great fabrics you have there. Have fun with the sewing!

  6. Can't wait to see what you make Dot, I LOVE your red sewing machine!!

  7. Oooh how fun! You should probably put a beautiful stash like that under lock and key -- you do know your mum loves gorgeous fabric, right??? Can't wait to see your finished tea cosy!

  8. You know you really want to give all your fabrics to me don't you?!?!?! Mother Locket x

  9. lovely fabrics and belated happy birthday -

    I was in John Lewis this week and I stood in front of these machines for about 1/2 an hour before letting the willpower win over (might have to go back next month!) -

    enjoy all your sewing projects and tell us how you get on with the machine! :)

  10. Oooh, I love that owly fabric. Wonder what you're going to make!

  11. Tell your Mum to knit herself a tea cosy - she has enough wool after all! Then you can use all YOUR lovely fabrics to make YOURSELF something special!

    I love your sewing machine. I've had my eye on one of those for Minx/me for quite some time ;o)
