In her blog, Anne Marie showed a" good buy" she made (lovely cups!) and also a "bad buy", which was some fabric she ordered and when she got them, well, it was not the colour she thought it was...
I found it was a nice idea so I decided to show you one of my "bad buys":
I saw this box from Moda and from the front cover I thought the colours were very nice and I liked the pattern too, so I bought it.
I cut all the fabrics following the pattern's instructions (one wrong cut and you are in trouble, that made me a little bit nervous, so here a minus!).
When it was all sewn together I was disapointed, the colours did not match as I expected.
It lies somewhere in a drawer, I thought of sewing a cushion, but I always set it aside again...
Here is the result:
But here is very "good buy"!
Actually I did not buy it, it was a present I got from my DH a couple of years ago for my birthday. It is a wonderful practical bag you can carry a lot of things!
When you open the zipper, there you are! Six boxes where you can put all your sewing "goodies" separately so they don't get mixed up!
Well, in the boxes they can get a little bit "untidy", but you always have them at hand!
I hope some of you also show some of your "bad and good" buys!!!
It is quite interesting to see what other quilters buy!
Have a nice weekend!
And happy quilting!
