I bought some new fabric recently and while I love most of the fabric I ordered, one of the fabrics 'Week-ends by Erin McMorris' just doesn't really do it for me.
Its a gorgeous fabric but I bought it thinking I might make a little dress for Izzy and the colours in real life just don't feel very child like if that makes sense? The background is a pale grey and the flowers more lilac and purple than I imagined. Such a shame as I bought a metre of it. I was going to put it in my fabric stash but it feels like such a waste. I know that I am never going to use it and I don't love it enough to just want to keep it to look at! So what to do?
Swop it with someone thats what! I was taken back to my youth and the days of Noel Edmonds Multi Coloured Swap Shop. There must be someone out there who loves this fabric and has a metre of their own unloved fabric that they want to swap it for. So is anyone up for swapping? If you are interested please leave a message with the name of your fabric (if known) and in the event of there being several choices I will pick the one I love the most. We can then each pay the postage and voila we will (hopefully) have a metre of fabric we both love. The people who don't swap with me can then do their own swapping post on their blogs maybe and we can start a swapping revolution!!
What do you think? Are you up for it?
