Looking for yellow...

The awesome and bloggy famous Dana from Made had the spontaneous urge of celebrating the color yellow.

Well, why not?

So I created a flickr account (yes, didn't have that already.... say I live under a rock, I don't mind! )
And added Mariann's yellow room.

..but this is the best I can so far...

I found two yellow tops (that doesn't fit the post-pegnancy belly) that I can edit and turn into a cute dress for lady Mariann and a nice top for mommy (let's hope).
But no fabric to actually enhance the tops...

So I went to one of my favorite place, the thirft store! yay!

There's one just around the corner that hold a space for sewers and knitters.
Looked for yellow fabric... no chance.
But I got those cute little vintage flowers, that stretchy yellow, some red gingham (couldn't pass the classics) and a rather big swatch of red cotton knit.

I didn't crab all the bias and twirl tape there was. It might have made me look obsessed... but I can make several trips....mine, all mine!

And we actually found something yellow!
Mariann loves her new nekasss (and she stopped playing with mines, for now)

So, let's hope I can actually sew something this week!


  1. You have a flickr now? I'm adding you! ;) Hehe.

    I love all of your amazing thrift store finds, they look so bright and pretty next to each other. I can't wait to see what you make with all that fun fabric.

  2. Yellow is a color that I have a very love/hate relationship with. It might be good for me to do some yellow loving.
    Great fabric finds. Can't wait to see how you use them.


Thanks for commenting!
