So, full disclosure, I haven’t started sewing yet. I’ve thought about it . . . earnestly . . . but the timing was never right. Seemed like I kept getting new Candy Crush lives or a nap was due.
I have visited fabric stores and thought about online notion purchases, so that’s something, right? Also, what’s up with BurdaStyle lately? It’s . . . different, and not good different. Nevertheless, I’ve visited sewing sites too.
The most intriguing thing I found is IKEA’s online fabric department. Now, I’m not sure if IKEA’s fabric is how I remember IKEA’s furniture, or how the quality of shoddy collegiate furniture translates to painted cotton fabric, but I am intrigued.
I wonder what a black paisley pattern on cotton looks like after a few washes, or what I would make with a fabric that looks like someone’s interpretation of paving stones. And then, who are these Ulla Bella girls, and why do I want to follow them on Twitter?
When do you have too much furniture? When your house is a blur of inanimate, legged things. And, maybe I would have done better with Girl Scouts if the forests looked like this (they don’t look like that at all in real life). And I’m not a huge fan of hearts, but these hearts are kinda all right.
I also started working on the pattern review for McCall’s 5989. I would have submitted it today, but I had second thoughts about the photo I was going to upload. Oh, perfectionists . . .
