Inspired by an idea followed by some random pattern search on Etsy, I decided to go ahead with thoughts of making Eva a simple dress. I know, I have too many hobbies and ideas, and then to go randomly searching for things like groomsmen gifts at redenvelope.com. Sometimes I don’t follow through with those ideas but this time, no way! I just had to try my hand at it.
Now, I have quite a bit of fabric in my stash but none were suitable for a baby girl’s dress except the brown animal print (see below). So I scheduled a trip to Spotlight here in Singapore in search of some complimentary prints after having decided on the pattern. I hadn’t really anticipate to find anything interesting in terms of cute baby prints but was pleasantly surprised to discover that they had stocked some very cute children’s print under the quilting section.
Why quilting cotton? Well, I could have opted for knit cotton but I didn’t find any interesting prints and I didn’t really feel comfortable matching different weight and feel fabrics together. I bought a few matching prints and at the cashier’s, promptly felt the pinch. At least three of the prints cost way more than what I would have paid if I order it online. Hai.
Anyway, now that I’ve got them, it’s only a matter of time before you see something yummy on this blog! Watch out for the next post…one cute dress is going to pop up!!!
