my creative space

Whenever I get a new fabric delivery there's the initial day of excitement (especially if it's one of my new designs) followed by 'argh, I have to cut & sew it all!' Today will be cutting out lots of fabric.

Linings waiting to be sewed - I kind of like them like this, I think they'd look pretty at a market stall with all their linings poking out. But, somewhat impractical. So, I shall sew them - stock for my shop, and for some upcoming markets.

Cutting business cards. One of the more boring things. But, necessary.

Oh yes, you clearly need a cutting & preparation fairy, as all that mundane preparation really kills the enthusiasm!! Great fabric Penny, love Posie

Michelle said...

okay so jealous, you have a printer that prints to 300gsm??? i have trouble getting mine to print anything at all, one of those hp all-in-ones. it never grabs the paper properly!

Oh Penny, your fabric is fantastic!! Seeing your own design on fabric for the first time must be one of the best feelings in the world.

Productive days are the best. I just spotted your guillotine and wondered where you got it. I want a good one but love suggestions on where the good places are.
