For Owls Eyes Only


I've been cutting into all of  my 'designed by me' fabrics lately (instead of hoarding them like I would normally do).


There should be a huge package of goodies arriving at Little Shop Of... today, including these super cute Sunnies/Specs Pouches.

Check out that pink fabric underneath - it's one of my scores from last weeks op shopping adventures.


I found this handmade skirt on the rack which I snapped up immediately, either to refashion to an a-line skirt, or to chop up for fabric......


.......but then it turns out that all of the leftover fabric was there too, along with this lovely turquoise crochet fabric. The op shop lady hinted that it was from a deceased estate, and asked if that bothered me at all.

Of course it doesn't bother me in the slightest - it's all just part of the magical recycling / reusing circle of life!

Love both those fabrics, their colours and textures. I hadn't realised your owl fabric had such little pictures. Very special.

I love your owls. So different to any other I've seen, I treasure the card you sent me!! Love the crochet fabric, I wonder what you'll do with it..? I must do a post on my recent op shop finds. Next week, after my giveaway, promise!!!

I love your owls. And that pink skirt is a wonderful find — good texture.

You are so productive Cam. Beautiful fabrics.

Funny how we dont really want to cut in to fabric that we really really like. The other two fabrics are both lovely in their own way.

I'm curious to see how you will use them, they are both very interesting fabrics. I love your owls too.

Oh how cute!! Your owl fabric is sooo awesome! And I like that skirt fabric. Our goodwill shop nearest to our house is a bit rubbish for good finds.

I popped into The Little Shop Of.. on Friday and checked out your pouches, super cute! I had to shove my hands in my pockets to stop me buying everything in the store!
