I decided to go to the fabric store today so that I could get some more material to practice on before our big field trip for sewing class on Tuesday. And I kind of wanted to scope the place out ahead of time so that I would have some idea of where everything was in the store, so the class wouldn’t be waiting on me all night.
That’s because, when I shop, if I know what I’m looking for, I’m in and out like nobody’s business…but if I don’t have a clear idea in my head before I walk in the door, I do laps back and forth across the aisles, picking things up and putting them back and then going to find them again. So, I thought this was a great idea, and I thought I could take my oldest daughter with me and have some fun one-on-one time.
Now, if you know me and know where this fabric store is, you might wonder why I decided to go on a Saturday afternoon, considering that it’s a pretty busy part of town on the weekends.
Apparently, I just love siting in traffic for THREE HOURS.
Three hours…to get $8 worth of fabric. To go into a store for twenty minutes. In the rain.
Uphill both ways.
Anyway, since half of my day was spent in traffic, yelling in my head (toddlers don’t need to see road rage, you know) at idiot soccer moms in HUGE, SLOW SUVs trying to turn left out of Barnes and Noble without a light, ya’ll are only getting the “before” this week.
I give you…a binder. A tiny binder. It’s like half the size of a regular one. With translucent, electric blue plastic on the front.
On Tuesday, ya’ll will not only get to see the after, but you will also get a full tutorial. WITH PICTURES.
So, yeah, if you’re at all interested in this binder, make sure to check in on Tuesday. If not, come back tomorrow, when you’ll get to see the rest of my sewing class homework.
