Good Sunday morning folks! There is a big sale on at the fabric store right now and I am doing everything in my power to stay away. Yesterday’s prompt was messy, today’s prompt is fabric. For me they go hand in hand. How about you? Do you run to the fabric store and buy fabric you will probably never use? How about patterns? Oh my gosh, I have so much of everything!
One of my goals this spring and summer is to sell off stuff that I really haven’t used in years and most likely never will. Most of this “stuff” is new, never used, waiting for a new home to put it to good use. I feel an intense, huge garage sale coming this summer! How am I ever going to have a garage sale if, for the next eight months I am going to have to operate out of two stores. There isn’t enough money and sales in the one that has all the “stuff” and hats to pay an assistant, except for at the Saturday markets when they start. I am going to be busy!
Getting back to today’s prompt, fabric. There is one item I really do want to make to sell. I want to make head covers for people with hair loss. I know there are lots available, and I even have them in my store from a supplier, but people with hair loss are always looking for something different. I have the fabric put away for when I have time to start designing and producing them. I also want to modify the “hairbana’s I make for hair loss which is just a head wrap with hair. I worked two years on that design in my “spare time” and I want to get back to it. The feature photo today is a head scarf that I have started designing and producing. I have not perfected it yet, so it is still a work in progress. I do have enough fabric to do a few test runs, just haven’t had the time to do so.
I am so thankful that the local hardware stores and building centres do not sell fabric. I really would spend all of my days there. Why do I have to be addicted to everything I like? Junk food, fabric, tools, building supplies, it never ends! How about you? What are you addicted too?
Have a great day! Remember to love yourself for being you.
