I have decided to try and be domestic and what better way than taking on a large, complicated sewing project! First stop, Mood fabrics. My dreams of seeing Tim Gunn there were not fulfilled but I did find some great fabrics. To say I was overwhelmed would be a massive understatement. Hundreds of rolls of fabric in every type, color, pattern imaginable.
I heard a girl next to me talking to one of the employees about how she works for a vendor who sells to Anthropologie and she was finding fabrics for their new spring collection. Obviously I followed this girl, she was probably uncomfortable with me standing four inches away from her but I didn't care, I had fabric to find. She picked a few and left a few and one of the rolls she liked but decided against I nabbed.
I found the perfect fabric, bought a few supplies and started sewing. After one meltdown, a few swear words and a lot unpicking, I finally finished! Even though I didn't hear Tim Gunn tell me "make it work" I must say I am pretty proud of my final product.
