On Wednesdays there is a big market in the centre of Oxford. You can find foods from around the world, fruit and veg, antiques, homewares, habadashery – and a really friendly man selling genuine Liberty fabric.
He has bolts and bolts of it – the choice is unbearable.
So I finally bought my first ever Liberty fabrics! I managed to hold back on buying the whole stall and only bought 2 metres – I see it as lucky that I had to catch my bus!
I chose these:
The top one is jersey; the other is cotton.
The price? £8 per metre. Amaaazing for Liberty – however more than I usually spend on fabrics. So I hope they are as good as they are said to be!
Of course, I didn’t buy with an idea of what to make, so I thought I’d ask you lovely people – what shall I make?! A totally open question!!
I have 1m of each – so probably some tops?! I want to use it soon because my stash is seriously overflowing and I need to justify my purchases!
There’s too much choice nowadays…
What can I make with 1m of floral jersey?
And 1m of cotton lawn?
Thank you for any suggestions!
