I may not be good at getting things sewn up but I am good at buying the materials so here is a look at some of the fabrics I have bought recently.
I had my first trip to BST Fabrics which is based in South Shields, UK.
I bought some cotton lycra, swim fabric and power net to line the swim. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the shop, it had a lot more than I expected. Plenty of bag making supplies, fabrics for clothing, quilting, dancewear and upholstery. My only gripe would be that they don’t have a good stock of plain cotton lycra fabrics. White and a few bright colours were the only ones that they had.
The rest of the fabric has been cotton lycra which I’ve bought from bst groups on Facebook. I tried to get everything in one photo.
Now I’ve just got to actually use them!
