From London pinstripes to Tokyo treasure maps, with a sprinkling of skull and crossbones, there are some fantastic fabrics around.
I've fallen in love with this Kokka design from Tokyo, made even more special by the envelope completely covered in whimsical stamps.
Who says you should never judge a fabric by its cover?
While the fabric above is a pirate in waiting, I rediscovered a nautical fabric I never knew I had. This has lain unloved at the bottom of a box for more than a decade, but has now become my new Pirate of Suburbia.
Have I really been impulse buying fabric for so long?
Surely not :)
