Some serious sewing is happening around here...

since I have enough muslin fabric to last me a lifetime!

We drove to a fabric outlet store on the outskirts of Gothenburg last weekend and picked these babies up for a mere $10 total. Quite an accomplishment in the land of the overpriced everything that is Sweden.
My bounty
As upholstery fabric, the cotton is a bit on the thick side (not to mention on the BRIGHT side) but should nevertheless allow me to estimate the basic fit of any pattern... using the reverse side if need be to minimize distractions. Lol.

Happy sewing everyone!

  1. Ah yes, Sweden really isn't the best place for fabric shopping. What is the store you went to called? So that I know next time I am in Gothenburg :) I live in Malmö and I really need to go check out the fabric stores in Copenhagen...

    1. I really can't say that I recommend this store because most things were overpriced except a very limited section of 3-4 fabrics at the back! The store's name was something with tyg or sy.. Situated in Kållered.

  2. Oo what a find - you could always dye it to make it a more uniform colour if you didn't want such a bold pattern x

    1. Yes, that's an idea... You're right that the motif is not too bad in theory. I love a nice ikat -- real or printed! However, the sheer scale of the print (which you can't really see from the pictures) is a little much! lol.
