Ok, so every stitcher under the sun has now had a go at the Colette Sorbetto pattern. Simple, sweet and super versatile, it's also completely free to download, so if you haven't already, you may as well.
I found this cute-busy-floral fabric at the Maybackufer market in Berlin for 2 Euro per metre. And I only bought one metre. You see, I told myself that I wasn't to buy unnecessary fabric, and I was particularly on the look out for patterned jersey. So when this light summery, drapey synthetic caught my eye, I couldn't go without. Funnily enough, of all the fabric I bought on my trip, this is the first one I have used.
I returned from my trip and best friend's birthday was around the corner. Wanting to give something handmade, and knowing that this print was very 'her', I scratched my head for a minute thinking "what on earth can I make from only one metre?". The answer - a Sorbetto, of course!
The finished product looked quite nice and as everyone says, it is a breeze to whip up. Off the Sorbetto went to Melbourne (with a bottle of Sake for good measure) and was gladly received by best friend in time for birthday celebrations.
A winner, me thinks : )
