My brain is totally in "bag mode" these days
This one's a bit more in my comfort zone, color wise...
It just depends on the day, I guess.
I needed fabric for the lining of this one. So, I went to the Marché St.-Pierre yesterday morning. My favorite store also carries leather now. I didn't buy any, not this time, but I had the hardest time to resist. They had the most gorgeous purple leather, perfect weight, very soft. Would have been nice for a purse. I'd better stop thinking about it!
I did find some absolutely great linen, though - stripes, in very soft shades, candy colors really, on a brown background. It took me a while to make up my mind as I found it a bit pricey at first, but now I'm really glad I bought it.
It's weird, but with nice fabric like that I'm finding it really hard to start cutting, too worried to destroy what's perfect, and also because I realize that one project eliminates another potentially better project, once the fabric cut.
So, for now, I just want to look at it, unfold it to admire the colors, drape it to see its flow. No scissors allowed yet!
