Hot stuff!!

While I didn't get my Mod's x 2 finished in Cam's bag adventure, the event was just what I needed to get me into gear.

I've made really good progress on the first one and got all the supplies and hardware needed for the second, which brings me to the title of this post...

I was very keen to make a Mod like Nikki's - I love the look of that red microsuede and she says it's quite achievable, so I headed off to Rathdowne but found that the red microsuede is not exactly readily available, but rather hard to come by.


Several trips later - SUCCESS!!  They had just got a roll in and instead of the $75 per metre that Warwick fabrics would charge it was $35 - and as luck would have it they had 40% off furnishing fabrics - my lucky day.

It's Hot Stuff though - if you want some get over there soon... it wasn't a very big roll!

Then I found the perfect fabric to line it with.


This 'Love Classifieds' print is part of Spotlight's new newsprint range - just perfect for the young single teacher.

I hope she has a sense of humour as some of the ads are a little quirky!
I thought it would be fun, let's hope come the end of the year she agrees.

Oh my I SO want to copy this! Love the red and that print is just superb!

Love that idea! K has a young lady teacher (single) so that print would be perfect to make a bag for her - nothing as ambitious as involving red suede though. I can feel a need to go to spotlight now... Susan

Oh that newsprint is hilarious! I'm sure she'll adore it.

Might have to get some of that for both Lucy's and Charlotte's teachers!

How cute is that fabric. Perfect for a single teacher.

Looking forward to seeing the finished bag. I'm hoping to get to Spotlight on the weekend and get some of the fabric from that range. I wish I was closer to Rathdowne Remnants!

that is perfect- the red, the red mixed in with the (hilarious) newsprint- looking forward to seeing this one.

That'll be one fun bag!
