For the Love of Fabric

Last week I was able to sneak in some fun creating and sewing. I had three baby presents to put together in addition to a birthday gift for Peachy. I spent a decent amount of time picking out fabric at the local Joann Fabrics. (Especially considering the fact that I had Shortcake and Cream with me.)

I really love fabric. I love seeing what is all available and then putting it together in combinations. I don't think that I have ever mentioned on here, but I worked at a quilt store in high school and college. It maybe wasn't every student's dream job, but I loved it.

My favorite type of customer would come in with a pattern and let me choose the fabrics with them. It was like shopping without spending the money, but rather getting paid to do it. When I sit down to work on a project, I probably spend more time than necessary choosing fabrics.

I just enjoy the process so much! That is also why I don't mass produce the items in my shop. I like to create unique creations, not a bunch of the same. And then, it is such a joy to see all of my careful decisions come together in a great finished product.

  1. So fun! I have a hard time finding good fabric, but I remember when you made that nursing scarf last year and said you'd found the fabric at Joann's - can't say I've been to a fabric store since then...but you inspired me to give Joann's another shot. You know, someday when I sew again.
