I was a naughty girl today. Our local fabric store had a huge sale on home decor and indoor/outdoor fabric and I bought a few things…1. Premier Prints -Rio Sunshine 2. Denim – Unknown 3. Dhoti Stripe -Suburban/Duralee 4. Arabia Confetti Cotton Duck 5. Java – Magnolia Home Fashions 6. Bella Top Drawer- Floral Black – Top Drawer 7. Carnival Village 8. Solid Grapevine – Dossett 9. Bella Top Drawer – Orange Blossom
I just love watching the clerks cut the fabric, stack them in a pile, then hand them over to me. Who doesn’t? But I didn’t feel guilty for long. That nice morning outing resulted in two custom orders for one of my bags! So the fabric you see above will go to use in my shop and for some new orders. It feels so nice to make a sale. To know someone wants something you designed and created yourself. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
This weekend, I am going to start doodling (need a more adult word for that!) beach bags. With a gaggle of boys and the beach a half hour away I have a feeling water will be a big part of our summer plans. I am also going to work on my e-pattern and recover from the gunk said gaggle passed on to me. Do you have any fabric/crafts/designs that are inspiring you this weekend?
