I’ve been sewing my knit fabric stash- but I’m barely putting a dent in it. I bought a bunch of soft, stretchy knits last time I went to the garment district in Dallas. I bought some quality stuff, some of it for only a couple bucks per yard. I’m getting excited, since I’ll be going back in the end of September!
I’ve been sewing from stash only for 2 months, trying to make space for the truckload I want to bring back. Dallas is fun, because its a secondary market. That means the warehouses are buying up close outs and bankrupties, and I’m paying less than half what I would normally spend. Plus, I can get out of print fabrics from a couple seasons ago!
I love seeing the kids wearing my stuff…but I tend to migrate more towards the boutique style outfits. My goal is to sew more wearable clothing…that means more knits and less guinea pig dresses. (Although, the guinea pig dress was worn quite a bit this summer!)
Here’s what’s in my sewing queue:
-holiday sewing projects for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas
-matching girl doll birthday dresses for 4 girls (yikes, due end of September)
-pajamas, because my daughters jamma drawer is on orphan status
– a doll sized quilt
Because I’m nosy, I’d love to know what your sewing/crafting plans are. How far ahead do you plan? Are you as irritated as I am that fall is sneaking up on us?!
