I’m home! And a little jet-lagged. It’s 6am. I should be asleep. ANYWAY! I have things to share!
So after doing a bunch of touristy things – including the Harry Potter Studio Tour (which is the best thing ever!) – I got to go off on my own on Wednesday to do some fabric shopping while Husband did more sightseeing. I went to Goldhawk Rd and Liberty of London (and also the V&A shop in hopes of finding their fabric but alas that did not come to pass.)
On Goldhawk Rd I came away with two fabrics though. Slightly less than 2 meters of the floral (last on the bolt) and 1 meter of what I can only describe as “Hail Britannia” print.
Here’s some close-ups of the prints: floral and Britannia
At the V&A I was hoping they’d have their fabric yardage available. Sadly they did not. But they did have a stash of these beautiful zippers. And while I knew you could get these scissors elsewhere I wanted to get them from the V&A just because.
At Liberty I decided against getting any fabric in the end. It was amazing to get to see it all in person but I knew I could get it slightly cheaper online. I did walk away with the ribbon above (the only print they had on ribbon) and the Great British Sewing Bee Companion Book – also something I could have gotten slightly cheaper online but wanted it from a UK shop as a memento from the trip.
Look! There’s Tilly! It was great to get to see the show “live” on Tuesday. Hopefully I’ll get to see the final two episodes as well.
