I'm playing along with Mikes and sharing my favourite fabrics out of my stash.
Here are two pink favourites that I love to love.
The one on the left is a Japanese fabric. It's not the usual thing I go for, but there's something appealing to me about it. I know the colour scheme could remind you of a galah, but I find it strangely attracts me. Plus, I think it also reminds me of my grandmother for some reason..
And the other is from the local fabric store (the same one that tried to tell me I could use baking paper instead of freezer paper for stencilling). Thankfully, when I was served it was an older woman who had a wealth of knowledge about fabrics. Where I thought this one was a seersucker, she told me it was actually called 'everglaze'. Then I said 'hmm, everglade' wondering why would it ever be called that, and she gently corrected me and told me that it was called 'everglaze' because it has a soft sheen to it. I love when people share their knowledge without being patronising parrakeets.
I like this one because it has that old-world charm. And it was dirt cheap.
Who doesn't love cute fabric when it's dirt cheap? I dare you to raise your hand.
