Marimekko sale

On sunday I was with my friend in Marimekko factory outlet on a sale. And I must admit that I maybe lost it a bit. I bought fabric and sewing kits I have no particular plans for. I usually try to only get stuff I know I need and will use soon. But everything was so cheap! (compared to the normal price).


I bought orange and stripy jersey knit fabric, some green shade cotton fabric and a packet of welt rib knit fabric in four different colours. Also I bought three sets of sewing kits, now I'm well equiped with zippers, I think there were almost 30 zippers altogether and lots of buttons. I also bought socks but those are not in the pictures. I'm surprised by the colourfulness of the fabrics I bought.

I have also now been super inspired to do lots of sewing and knitting and I have like gazillion projects unfinished. The office where I do my sewing is now a massive disaster.

  3. Marimekko factory sale that sounds like a magical place...I would have gone on a crazy shopping spree as well. Oh, and you also got colorful zippers as well. Maybe you could sew a pillow with a contrasting zipper? There is this furniture store outlet not too far from me that is supposed to sell Marimekko fabric remnants from their stores, maybe I should check it out sometime...
