I’ve been in the Spotlight recently.

I should just stop going into Spotlight.  I get trapped every time.  For those of you not in Australia, Spotlight is the shop where you can buy all things associated with sewing and craft but also bedding and household goods.  I tend to just go to the sewing and craft section most of the time.

I was well and truly trapped the last time I visited as I passed the sewing pattern table and noticed that you could buy three patterns for $10 with a further discount if you were a VIP member.  Naturally I couldn’t pass up a bargain such as that.  I was sure I would be able to find three patterns that I could use at some stage.

Well of course once I had purchased my three patterns I then had to find some fabric.  I knew I didn’t have any stretch fabric at home and I had chosen a stretch fabric pattern as one of the patterns.

IMG_2644I was prompted to buy a stretch fabric pattern after all my work in sorting the overlocker.  I haven’t done any stretch sewing for many years and I thought it would be good to give it a try again.

      It is a great shop. A real Alladin’s cave. You never know what you are going to find in there.
      I seem to have got my sewing mojo back at the moment. Heather

      Thanks Kate. I want to make one for Lewis but I will need to go for some fabric suitable for him. Those two are for Maggie.

  3. They’re wonderful. It’s great when you find a bargain like that that really is a bargain, i.e. something you’ll make use of and enjoy.

      I am going to have to go back there as I now need to make a top for the brother. I wanted to see how the top would turn out before I made one for the older brother.
