Fabric of the Week: Spade Damask

Hello! This is a little exciting – it’s time for my first Fabric of the Week announcement.

This week I’ll be working with a fabric I picked up on a Wellington Sewing Bloggers fabric buying roadie – after High Tea in Palmerston North we headed to the massive Arthur Toye store there, and this caught my eye.

The fabric is Spade Damask from the Ginseng range by Joel Dewsberry.  It’s a cotton sateen, perfect for home décor such as lampshades and cushions.  It will also make lovely tote bags and coin purses.  I’ve got around two metres of this fabric, and I’ll be cutting into it on Monday. If you’d like to order something for yourself from this fabric, let me know by Monday lunchtime and I’ll give you a discounted price. I don’t have my new online shop set up yet, but you can let me know what you want by sending me a message.

While you think about what you’d like, here’s a picture of a lampshade I made from this a few weeks ago, and currently available at Made it.
