On Weekend Eve (Thursday night) while watching Project Runway, I tried to organize my fabric stash. This is a challenge, and while I'm mostly happy with the results, my sewing space still needs some organizational TLC.
The boxes are from Ikea, and while they are childish and a little silly and probably not first choice, they were the perfect size for my bookshelf. Also, I know I should have refolded all of the fabric, but that was going to take too.
So far I have six boxes of fabric, but I still need a couple more. Would you believe me if I said I still feel like I need more fabric?? I have a box for all my Anna Maria Horner fabric, a box for my bright and bold flower prints, a box for novelty prints, and this is all I can remember off the top of my head, and I'm too tired to take 15 steps back to my laundry room/sewing space to remind myself of what's in the other boxes.
Then tonight I needed to make a present for a friend, so I chose to make a Taxi Tote out of Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me book. An excellent book I might add.
The bag will end up looking like this one. Well, different fabrics, but same pattern.
But I got to one of the very last steps, and realized that I don't have enough red thread to sew on my red bias tape. I'm sure I could have just used white thread, but I couldn't bring myself to do that. It wouldn't look as pretty. So, tomorrow I'll be off to JoAnn's, so I can finish the bag!
Not the most exciting post, but life is busy and there are only so many hours in the night unfortunately!!!
