Oooh, not sure what I would choose - probably novelty fabrics as we are starved of them in my country. What would I make? Bags, teeny weeny skirts,toys. Or maybe I'll just save it for a 'rainy day project'... ie. love it to death and be too scared to cut it up!

Now, I don't know how to sew but I've just recently moved into my very own apartment and there are so many things I want to sew myself including (but not limited to) duvet cover, grommet top curtains, and making pillows and slip covers for old recycled couches. I've obsessed over DIY blogs like How About Orange and now that I'm getting this ancient sewing machine I will finally be able make awesome things for myself. What better way to start that all off with a fresh few bolts of unadulterated fabric.

Thanks,
