The last stop was Mood Fabrics – love love love love! This place is three floors of glorious fabrics.. When you first walk in there is a young lady to retrieve your packages and any bags you might have — you know “security.” Right by her station are zippers (invisible) for only .50 cents each! Whew what a steal! I guess the price of the zippers makes up for pricing in the store.
I was very focused on finding fabric gear for Fall so I focused on Fall colors and weights of fabric. In addition I was determined to find fabric for my first coat.
I did score six pieces of fabulous fabrics! One I can’t post and the first one will be in a seperate post as it does relate to my coat.
On this sample sheet you see four fabrics two are Italian knits, one denium, and a camaflauge. The first square is a denium stripe with stretch which the plan is a jumpsuit, the second square is the most glorious Italian knit that came in 72” wide! This score will be a top and a tank top, the third square is a camaflauge Italian knit that is very thin in nature. This fabric was so thin that my serger did not like locking in single layers 🙁 — So all my seams were serged together except one seam.. I will discuss this project tomorrow. The last square you see is the actual camaflauge fabric that I will use to create a longer pair of shorts.
I will be returning hopefully the week of August 24th to return to Pacific Trimmings and Mood Fabrics.. There is also a sewing conference in New Jersey that I will hopefully attend.
