fabricPosted: August 2, 2010
the obvious thing to do when you’ve just declared your disdain for sewing is to go in search of more fabrics.
found this ugly-yet-beautifully-retro pack-o-fabric at goodwill for a buck. i didn’t really seek this out. the colors just sort of shouted at me.
from across the store.
falls into that fluoro color trend happening everywhere. or at least in europe.
primstyle = kimstyle.
i might’ve had jammies in that fabric as a kid.
and then went to the flea market yesterday and got a small stack of vintage fabric remnants:
surprisingly, one of the fabrics i had quickly placed in my pile turned out to be a curtain panel and coincidentally fit my back door perfectly. again – it falls into this “granny chic” look and i don’t mind that look, really. actually, i do like it when i’ve seen it done correctly. i just have a feeling i’m currently walking that thin line between granny chic and goodwill ghetto granny sanford-and-son. whatever. this apartment is temporary (i hope.) i’m keeping the curtain up.
