    Yep! I would have spent over $100 as well. It's surprising how quickly another Metre adds up. I also have a habit of buying more just in case and then I have plenty of leftover.

    I still have fabric from years ago. Bought it to make some specific things but just never got around to it. Then when I want to make something now I end up buying new fabric argh!

    Oh and it's not just fabrics. I also have elastic, zippers, and other random stuff. I ordered a sewing foot for bias binding (was cheap from Ali. Express) them yesterday I was looking for something and found out I already have one 😕
    Keep saying I need to sort out my sewing room but as soon as I start on a project the room is a mess again.

    I'm self taught... I started with quilting with is pretty straight forward in the sewing department and more complex in patterns and color matching. I honestly hired how to quilt for dummy's and just hit the ground. Many many hours of unpicking under my belt... Now I see lots of different things and the Internet is pretty much my teacher. I find patterns I like and start them and anywhere I get stuck I either Google or ask someone I know how to do it.

    Thanks to this forum I ordered some (a lot!) of fabric and patterns from the Boo! website.
    It's now past 1am and I have just finished sewing these pins for dd.
    Am loving how they turned out and surprised how easy the fabric was to handle!
    I think I am ready to attempt the swimming costume now
