I bought this gorgeous fabric at the Sewing For Pleasure show last week (egged on by my companions.) It is a thick woollen base and the swirls are yarns which have been felted in. It was very tricky to sew, particularly sewing the collar on through several thicknesses.

I think we still have some winter to come yet, so I will be able to wear it!

Well I am glad that Scottie, Eggyannie and Asterixsew were there with you and egged you on to buy the fabric. (no pun intended with regards to "egged" ). Outstanding job on the jacket and it's so YOU!!!!! Love and blessings Chris

Yes I did.

Beautiful! I'm going to save your picture for inspiration as I have a felting machine, but not many ideas for using it!

spendlove by spendlove 30 Mar 2013

I have one as well, but I haven't produced anything worth showing yet! (I bought it at the same time as my embroidery machine.)

The main thing I use it for is to fuse water soluable film such as Vilene together to make bigger pieces. It works great for that!

Now that is an idea worth remembering!

And remember those who persuaded me that the fabric was me!

by marjialexa Moderator 29 Mar 2013

What irresistable fabric! And you actually cut it and made a coat! I would have just kept the fabric for petting, hee hee hee. I envy your visit to the show--nothing of that calibre here (USA, Northwest PA). Well done, would love to see it in person. Hugs, Marji
