I have just finished sewing this little monster and I wanted to share it with you because I really love this fabric and it arrived with me by chance as the result of a swap. Swaps are wonderful. I love carefully selecting and packaging up an assortment of fabrics and sending them off through to the post to someone who I know will enjoy them and then eagerly waiting for the postman to bring me treasure in return! This gorgeous blue floral fabric was in a package from Modflowers, we swapped some vintage loveliness a few weeks ago and I have been eagerly waiting for some spare minutes to make this monster. Modflowers writes a really lovely blog, if you love vintage fabrics and inspiring interiors this is the place to look.
So lovely to see it made up into your gorgeous little monster!
That fabric started life as part of a vintage summer frock I wore back in the 1980s! I shortened the dress and kept the remnant I cut off as it’s so pretty, but never found the right thing to do with it. So nice that its found a new purpose in life! I wonder if I have a photo of me wearing the frock? Hmmm… might have to hunt through old photos next week!
O wow, now I love it even more! I would love to see a photo if you can find one 🙂
