What could I do with that fabric? The jacket idea was really tempting, but I couldn’t think of a way to add a detail or technique that would challenge. And of course, there was that money issue too. Running around, too many red fabrics and can’t figure out which the customer would like better. Max is giving me the look. Just to sort of get him off my back, I asked to go find out if the store had a floral department – you know, fake stems. He walked off, or maybe I should say “stalked” off. And I continued searching, and then it hit me! Flowers! NO, not flowers – foliage! That gorgeous fabric and fake stems – working with fake stems would DEFINITELY be a challenge for me. I’ve never done it! But what to make? Something small – not much money, so less than a yard of fabric would be good. Something fairly simply in design – not much time left before the challenge submission deadline, and the fabric really speaks for itself.
Tomorrow, the finished project!
