Scraps from my current project
Monday I drove out to Fabric Depot with my mom. It was my first ever visit to this fabric nirvana and certainly won't be my last. The only way I could have been more inspired is if the fabrics were organized by color instead of brand. Still, it was absolutely amazing in a dangerous way that could possibly spur a personal and expensive sewing renaissance.
I will only admit this because I know my coupon-deal getting czar sister, Allyson, does not read my blog: If I had spent 3 minutes checking around on-line I probably would have been able to find a coupon and avoid the minor panic attack I had checking out with my 5 yards of fabric and 3 funky buttons.
But the real serious hyper-ventilating came when I failed to use my JoAnn's coupon because of a little thing I like to call "complete coupon incompetence" and ended up paying full price for 9 yards of fuseable interfacing, 5 yards of solid fabric and 2 spools of thread.
That's OK though (breathe, breathe) because it will all be worth it when I showcase the darling things I am making with my full-price fabric.
I can't wait to go back to Fabric Depot, but next time, I promise I'll use a coupon.
