I've been looking online and finding a lot of options, but I was nervous because I am a very tactile person and have never bought fabric I wasn't able to feel first. Early this week I decided to take a chance and ordered three new fabrics from various Etsy stores. All three arrived yesterday and they are all exactly what I was hoping for. I was so relieved and feel a lot more confident about buying fabric online now.
One of the fabrics I bought is blue. I have had an aversion to blue for as long as I can remember. Why? I don't know. The only guess I have is it's my mom's favorite color. Don't get me wrong; I love my mom, but we don't really have the same style. Growing up, I was always striving to be an individual and figure out what being "me" meant. I already knew someone with blue as a favorite color, so that was out. I'm not sure why the aversion has lasted so long though.
Anyway, enough psychoanalysis. I bought the blue fabric because I know that most of the world's population likes the color blue and the pattern was very appealing to me. The fabric is called Blue Leaflet and its by Michael Miller. I made the first bag from it last night and I LOVE IT. It is a bit larger than all the others I've made and I think it will be great for big boxes of cereal or those long veggies like celery and romaine lettuce that are always trying to jump out of bags.
What do you think?
My goal this weekend (one of many) is to go grocery shopping. First, we desperately need groceries. But I also want to take pictures of all the bags I have finished packed full of groceries. They look so great laying flat, but I need to show that they are fashionable and functional.
