Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, Please Shine Down on Me
This fabric....makes me smile. Look at those suns! I mean, just look at them. They are so bright and cheery and smiley and, well, sunny! Maybe if I concentrate really hard I can channel the power of those smiles into convincing the real sun to come out and stay out for more than 30 minutes at a time. I purchased this fabric about 6 months ago at a smaller fabric store that specialized in quilting cottons called Fibers in Motion. I believe I paid $2.50 for a fat quarter (for explanation of what a fat quarter is, go here). This fabric is so cheery and makes me smile so much that I kinda wish I had purchase more now. It's a great spring fabric, and would be great for children (or anyone who likes cute suns). If the weather outside continues to insist on being unpredictable and grey, at least my current fabric makes me feel warmer. If I had more of this, I think I would make pajama pants out of it. It is a very lightweight flannel. Even though I despise wearing flannel, this is soft enough and so happy that I think I could forgive its flannel-ness and wear it with aplomb.
I'm just your average sewing nut who delights in all kinds of fabric. I collect scraps of all kinds of fabric, no matter how small. Getting a new box of upholstery samples, or seeing a really awesome trim on sale, are some of my lifes great pleasures. I usually work in the live theatre industry constructing costumes and stage manging. I also make some of the scraps that I have collected into purses for sale at www.byladyt.etsy.com and www.byladyt.com
