Fur and Vinyl :)

Last month my son had a tournament in Atlanta Georgia, so I took that oppurtunity to drop by Fine Fabrics . I had heard so much about it on Instagram and through other sewing groups that I am a part of . I just had to visit... and boy was I in for a treat !!!!!


For fear of looking like a nut I held back my squeals of excitement ! The funny part was I had brought my husband along ( for the muscle of lifting fabric bolts :) )  and I think he was secretly just as excited as I was . He would give me a quick "nope" if i picked something that he didn't like :)

So after WE had spent a good hour in the store just browsing I went back and picked the fabrics that I wanted ... you know its bad when you have a shopping list ... in a fabric store... :) 
But HEY, I had to make sure I got everything I came for :)

I settled on 4 different fabrics for Fall !!
( follow me on Instagram to see them :) @MrsCraftyChick)

I was ready !! 

1st Up !! Vinyl and Fur!!


One of the fabrics that I fell in love with was what I first thought to be some type of leather ...
However , as I began to work with it I realized that it was actually a vinyl!!!

It had this beautiful sheen to it !

I decided to make a simple circle skirt out of it because I knew the weight of the  fabric would allow it to fall beautifully with little effort on my part :) 

I was right!!! 
It fell beautifully and the fabric really has a leather look to it .. 

 I used Mccall Pattern 6964 to make my Crop Top :

I decided to make my crop top from a Minky fur fabric that I found at Joann's ...
 I was really looking for more of a Angola Fur but couldn't find that so I settled on this as a suitable alternative !!

I LOVE how it all turned out !!

This outfit is ready for Fall so I will be adding it to my Fall Wardrobe  !!!

Accessories : Body Central 

 Until Next Time !!!!
