Jaime Loves Stuff : Hoarding Confessions: Fabric


Hoarding Confessions: Fabric

Okay, not so much as HOARDING since I don't have a whole ton of fabric but... I bought out of compulsion and my inner hoarding traits.

Well, before I babble on, have you ever heard of Pick Your Plum? Essentially, it's a daily deal site similar to HauteLook, Zulilly, Rue La La, etc. except different.  There are usually 2-3 items and they're very different kinds of items.  Might be cute jean jackets, cute leggings, maxi skirts, maxi dresses, fabric, crafting supplies, etc. and all at really, really good prices.  I have ordered from them a couple of times- I ordered some Washi Tape, elasticy fabricy things (to make those hair ties, see? no idea how to describe them haha), and fabric.  If you order early, you'll get your order quick but there is a cut off time and after that, it will take 3-4 weeks.  Overall, my experience has been really, really good.  Note, this is NOT a sponsored post.  Just wanted to share a smoking deal site and to contribute to others' bad spending habits.

So, to the reason for my post.  I was on Pinterest and saw some how "easy" (yep, rolling my eyes at myself) it would be to sew pillow cases and said to myself "You can make them, too!".  Lo and behold, my Pick Your Plum email came and lovely chevron fabric called out to me.  Can't remember how much they were but I ordered all the colors and a few extras of the teal, gray and yellow.  All with dreams of sewing pillow cases to update my interior decor.  Well.  I did not take into account that 1. I don't own a sewing machine and 2.  I pretty much suck at crafting and really, I am a wannabe.  I really WANT to make the pillow cases and I really WANT to sew but crap, I need the space, the time and the energy. Oh yeah.  I also need a sewing machine.

Alas, I have lovely fabric and I stare at it and it stares at me.  Aren't they lovely?  Now... to get a sewing machine.  Can you throw a girl a bone and tell me what you would do with all this gorgeous fabric? HELP!!!!

  1. I would probably give it to your sister.....in exchange for all the scrabble tiles she is hoarding. She hasn't a clue of what to do with scrabble tiles.
