I have been stocking up on bits and bobs that I need for making clothes.
I hate it when I plan a garment, but cannot start it because I haven't a zip for it, (even a basic one) or worse still, making a garment and not being able to finish it because I don't have any buttons.
So I went on a bit of a bender, buying buttons and zips.
Each bag was 450 grammes, and although I could see some of what was in the bags, more of them were a surprise.....I liked them so much, that I went back for more.....
I also bought some zips from the same ebay seller, and another seller too.
I am hoping to stock up on threads too. I usually use Coats Moon thread. It comes on 1000m spools and can be bought quite reasonably on Ebay (where else!). I just need to decide on colours. Anyone any secrets about useful colours that you always have in your stash? I need to get black, white, beige, red, navy, brown and grey.
I have also finally bought myself some pinking shears. I am waiting patiently for them to arrive!
Needless to say, I won't be buying any fabric this month, nor next!
