The summer months for the past few years have been the time when I typically find more time for sewing but not this year. Thankfully, I've been working. I've found a part-time job at a fabric store. I know, it sounds like a dangerous place to be working but believe it or not, I haven't been buying out the store. Might be that after standing all day and doing all that physical work, the last thing I feel like doing is shopping for fabric. This job might be the best thing to help me with the fabric fast!
I did manage to get some sewing done, all these projects were made with fabric from the stash. My sewing mojo received a boost with the appearance of Tessuti's Eva dress pattern. There is one hideous sewing project that I made when I was sick, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it, that has been omitted from the project photo above but counted in the stats below.
RTW & Fabric Fast:
Okay, so working at a physical job didn't keep me away from fabric shopping. As matter of fact I went in on my day off and picked up 2.1 metres of 100% linen I spotted in the home decor department marked down to $4.00 / metre. The plan was to make a pair of pants until someone mentioned they make beautiful kitchen towel and now I'm thinking linen kitchen towels would be a lovely host / hostess gift to have when the occasion is called for.
The RTW fast is so easy, I don't even have to think about it. I'm looking forward to the day when I can say the same about the fabric fast. Only 2.1 metres is not bad though, right?
