thanks to Helen I now have four yards of this fabric — actually, thanks to Helen I now have the LAST four yards of this fabric, because I’m mean like that. but take heart! There are other colorways (some border prints!) of this lovable Yuwa scissors fabric available at PurlSoho, and it’s on sale (which implies $9 instead of $15, but hello …)
It’s only 43 inches wide, and I did only get four yards of it, so I’m not sure exactly what I’ll make yet. (It may work for the same pattern as the infamous Target-curtain numbers dress.)
It might just be my monitor, but I think this colorway is very 1930s, especially with the old-fashioned scissors. I can’t wait until it shows up … I hope I can get my new sewing room organized before then, so it can hop right into the washing machine and onto the cutting table!
