Stash building

A raveler was having a destash and she had some of the famed echino panther dots. I've been wanting this fabric for a very long time, but it's getting hard to find and it's like $20/yard with shipping. yikes. so while i was browsing i found a few other lovelies to come home with me.
Rav destash
1/2yd of shot cotton. it's olive with navy blue threads. very different from my usual. i like how subtle it is.
1yd echino panther dots
1.5yds kaffe fassett purple planets. i love how many double consonants are in his name. i like this fabric even more than i thought i would. yay i finally found something purple that i like.
1yd echino leopard. i actually don't love this one. but it came as a set with the other echino fabric, so i'm sure i can find a way to use it.

right now i'm thinking about using the panther dots for a bag. i haven't decided for certain yet but i was thinking about doing the Cosmo Bag from Style Stitches. it's a ginormous bag but it's so cute. i wonder if it would work well for travel.

  1. I have some of the panther dots as well, and I totally understand the desire! There's not many Echino prints I don't like. Oooh, and shot cotton is so soft!

  2. Oh wow, I think I've seen the panther, but only as FQs...I didn't realize it was so rare!
    I think it would be quite striking made into that bag.
