I have recently been in Melbourne and while there I went into the Marimekko shop in the EMPORIUM. Marimekko was very popular in the 70s and I have always liked their fabrics but the prices are a bit expensive. They had some lovely little items on display but again the prices were what I thought rather excessive. After a bit of umming and aahhing I decided to buy a metre of fabric and see what I could produce that would make the purchase worthwhile. The metre of fabric was $69. As I said, it was a bit expensive.
I have managed to make an apron.
I even managed to use the selvedge edge to make a label.
Already I have come out even, anything else I make is a bonus.
A cosmetic bag. I had the zip already in my store of things recycled from clothing no longer viable and the lining fabric was left over fabric from something I had made previously.
Yes that bag says $55.00.
A storage bowl – again with left over fabric for lining. I still have some Marimekko fabric to use so I guess my $69 was worth it. I will let you see what else I make when I get them finished.
