Fabric shopping

Today I bought some fabric from Spotlight, and some yarn from Lincraft.

The fabric is for making bags, I have a messenger bag pattern that I haven't tried out yet and I can't wait to have a go.

The yarn is a bamboo/cotton mix and it's so soft, I just love using bamboo. I have lots of nappies and wraps for my DS made from bamboo, so when I saw this yarn I had to get some. The fact that I've never actually successfully knitted or crocheted a single thing didn't stop me... I actually have no idea what to do with this yarn, I'll have to poke around on the net for some ideas.

I bought the fur fabric from Lincraft ages ago, it is the softest thing I've ever felt, just like a really soft bunny fur. I think I'll make some sort of toy for DD with it.

Did you change your blog skin or is it just me? Oh and you found corduroy (is that how you spell it?)! I searched Spotlight on the weekend and came up empty handed. Might have to head into Lincraft. Good idea! Enjoy your bag making :)

Bamboo's good for washcloths (but takes a long time to dry because it's so absorbent!)
