I had the pleasure to find a package waiting for me tonight in my mailbox. A spooky package I couldn’t wait to receive. ^_^
I gave in and placed my first fabric order on Etsy at the beginning of the month. It was also the first time for me to order fabric from an american designer company, after admiring a lot of them on the Internet. I fell in love with this fabric the first time I saw it, in a preview post on True Up. As I always do with the american fabrics I like, I let the expense frighten me and I thought I would wait, I would order it someday, later… But then I had a project idea, and I looked for the fabric online, and realized it was almost sold-out. I couldn’t let it pass, so I ordered some before it disappeared completely.
I have to say I’m really happy I did. I love it! Look at those witches! Aren’t they great? And this haunted house! Halloween fabrics are not always to my taste (at least to use for garments), they have a tendency to look very costumey. But this one is perfect! Okay maybe most people will think this is costumey also, but I hope I can make something nice and wearable from it. Be careful if you like it and haven’t seen it for real, the print is really big.
I also got those nice brass buttons, which I like a lot also. They’re even nicer on person than they were on the pictures. And I like their slightly heavy weight.
Now I have to get to work, I don’t have much time left before the end of the month…
