I promised to upload pictures of my fabric haul from Walthamstow. So here goes, lots of lovely loot!
As you can see, the bargains I got are amazing. You can’t go there with anything too specific in mind, it’s definitely a place you let inspire you, rather than a place you try to hunt for that one specific thing in. I knew I wanted wine red, but then went and let everything else be decided by what I found. Once I saw that embroidered organza I knew it had to be worked in somehow!
Additionally, two pieces were ones a friend no longer needed and another three are huge curtains from Freecycle. Two of those sets of curtains need to be dyed, really, but they would do to furnish the tent I will be in as they are, or one set when dyed might make that Burnoose. Now I need to source bargain clothes dye…
