Autumn Fabric: The Ultimate Guide

By 2 months ago 348 Views No comments

With the stresses of September finally over, it's time to concentrate on what really matters: kicking your feet up, logging into Fabric Yard, and choosing all the fabric you'll need this October!


How did September treat you? If you feel chewed up and spat out you should pick up a crystal ball, because sister, you're reading my mind.

This month I,

  1. Waved my Summer wardrobe Goodbye (I chased after the train to tell her I made a huge mistake, but two weeks in made my peace)
  2. Sewed 4 new Autumn pieces
  3. Exhumed many a quilt and blanket (bartering necessary after the profanities I told them in June)
  4. Got the flue 3 times
  5. Started adding turmeric to my coffee (like this, but shot of espresso necessary)

**If you haven't made one of these lists yet, it's the best mood booster after pretty fabric.

Fine, that title may have been click bait...but sewing yourself a cow print bag is a dang good way to start!

September is upon us. Uncomfortable jeans are back on and movement is once again limited by puffer jackets. My phone attempts a break-out from my pocket every time I do more than 2 steps, I spend 10 minutes digging through all my jackets for the only lipstick which matches my outfit, then I realise my wallet is in one of those jackets too and finally I run out the door already late for work...only to realise its 18 degrees and I didn't need a jacket at all.

I can't go on like this.
