adventures in NYC

A week or so I ago, I went to NYC with a friend to spend the day in the garment district…y’all know me, so you know it was an all day affair that included a dozen (or so) stores.

One of them was Global Leathers, where I picked up this lovely stash of pretties:



Not pictured is a large handful of red scraps and a skin in an absolutely gorgeous pewter metallic. The last several days have been all about my sketchbook and daydreaming ways to use this (and the other goodies I picked up in NYC) to make pretty things for you! Stay tuned.

  1. Valerie – Love this new design and these fabrics are heavenly – I haven’t sewn in years, still I try to avoid fabric stores as whenever i tempt fate, I never come out empty handed! I don’t know what would happen if I ended up in NYC’s garment district! It wouldn’t be pretty!!!
    Love all the fabrics – these bags are lovely!
    All my best –

  2. Hi Kathleen, you know I feel your pain with being tempted! Shopping in the garment district is always an adventure, if you end up going bring a friend who can restrain you. 🙂
