Colorful Fabric


Albeit fabric stores are colorful and fun to look at, I have a love/hate relationship for fabric shopping. I like it because there are so many colors and different designs, which is fun for me to look at. I also enjoy thinking about what a suit could look like and how I could design it. That's right up my alley! :)

However, sometimes it can be really crowded or I can't speak good enough in the language. That can put a damper on things--but I am learning and growing. There is so much I can do now that I couldn't do a year ago, so that's exciting! 

In the US, people generally don't buy fabric to make clothes (at least I didn't and neither did my friends). My Mom did when I was a kid, but nowadays, I feel like it's not as common. That is one thing that is a benefit here if you're into that--you can find lots of fabric everywhere for all kinds of projects!

Do you buy fabric? If so, what do you like to make with it? 


Buying Cloth at the Market

I've been to buy cloth at the market and guys...I'm just not that great of a haggler! My husband on the other hand, he's a rockstar! I have tried and I have gotten better over the past months, but, it's not what I look forward to doing when I go. That is why I now bring my local friend. :) That is not called 'being lazy', but 'being smart'! It saves me time and money. Why wouldn't I do it?! AND I get time with my friends! I'd say that's a pretty awesome deal on many levels.

I fortunately wasn't buying anything that day--just taking pictures. :)
