Jumping to be used

After so many people saying their trade secret was a bias tape maker i was thrilled that i invested in some.... I actually bought them at the Melbourne quilt and craft fair a few weeks ago... (I'm a bit slow at posting about them I know).. I can't wait to use them... I've been looking at the tutorials people have been putting up about them everywhere. After sewing together a oven glove recently i realised the boring one color bindings that are out there...



Some other great buys from the Quilt fair were these great fabrics... I have looked at the Kristen Doran owl fabric for so long and couldn't pass up the chance to score some.

All the fabrics are medium weight, I just have to decide what special things to make out of them. I just LOVE linen blends at the moment.
