Sewing / Friday, May 26th, 2017

I have been working on the awesome panty panels I received last week.  Until I ran out of black cotton lycra!  Fail!  So Thursday passed, I set aside to do the roadtrip.  Since living in Malmesbury, the fabric shop is no longer just “around the corner”.  Misery awaited me… I visited 3 fabric shops in Somerset West – nothing!  I ended up in Cape Town!  Blah!  Driving for hours with two little people with me.  So boring to them.  I eventually got some cotton lycra and managed to get some discount too as it was the last couple of meters on the roll.  Cool.  Got home.  Washed the fabric.  Dried.  Sorted.  Right?  Nope…..

I started cutting the new fabric and it felt a bit thin.  I thought that seeing as they will be used as bands, folded double, it won’t be as bad.  I sewed one.  Nope.  Nope.  Nope.

This is not working!  I made a quick live video on the DoodleBooty Mature Fabrics group to notify my clients.  I need better cotton lycra!

Then a fellow WAHM contacted me via private message.  She has black cotton lycra for me!  YAY!  Please give her some love over at Doe & Joey.  It is a closed Facebook group.
