just because and plans for selfish sewing

Sometimes I buy fabric 'just because'. When Pink Castle Fabrics had a sale on their Japanese fabrics I scooped this up mostly because they are pretty (I had my eye on the Hiding Cats one for a while!):

Top to bottom: Mini French Cheater Print by Suzuko Koseki; Daisies in Grey, Live Life by Yuwa; Deer and Cherries, 30's by Atsuko Matsuyama; Hiding Cats, Cocoland by Kokka and Language of Flowers, 30's Collection by Atsuko Matsuyama.

I adore the Language of Flowers print, I love retro text prints and how cute is the Hiding Cats selvedge?!

After making this drawstring tote the other day I knew I wanted one for myself so I got some canvas and twill ribbon from The Village Haberdashery:

Neon Clouds in orange and navy by Hokkoh; Scattered in neutral, Mochi Canvas by Rashida Coleman-Hale and some twill ribbon.

Selfish sewing ahead :)

  1. A lovely selection of goodies! I really like the hiding cats print, too cute! Enjoy your 'selfish sewing' - the neon clouds fabric will be perfect!

  2. Lots of lovelies. I too love the Language of Flowers fabrics, and the cats one is adorable. I did wonder at first what you were referring to when you mentioned the Hiding Cats fabric as, well, I didn't see any cats!

  3. Superb stashing just because, I don't like cats but that is pretty cute fabric! Enjoy your selfish sewing.

  4. Great bundle and the language of flowers print in particular speaks to me! Have fun! :)

  5. Gorgeous fabrics and you certainly deserve something beautifully handmade for yourself :)

  6. tOOk me a moment to spot the cats. Off to stalk you on 52 quilts!
