Fabric purchase during my travels

Monday I traveled to Richmond, VA for business.  I arrived about 1.5 hours earlier than my meeting, so after lunch I popped in to Hancock's I was able to purchase two KS patterns.  I also had two fabric pieces jump into my cart and assisted a fellow sewist/shopper about a piece of fabric for a dress she was making.

I bought 3 yards of black double knit.  I had acquired a yard recently from Fabric.com but I did not like the look of this double knit.  It was rather thin and had a shine to it that did not go well with the fabric I was going to use it with.  I will use it with something else later.  I also found a faux snake/reptile skin fabric that I knew I wanted to make into a jacket or vest.

This looks better in real time than I could capture with my camera.  This next photo shows the wrong side.  It is a woven.

The sewing mojo is back in full swing, my problem is lack of time to sew with so many others things going on right now.  I am taking the week after Christmas off and plan to get a few items sewn.


  1. This animal print rocks. I can't wait to see it sewn

  2. I fondled that snakeskin print on the woven tweed like fabric myself on Saturday when I was in Hancock. I successfully resisted it, but left with some other fabric. I can't wait to see what you make out of it.
